‘Drawn’ to Ipoh…..

Remember this shop? Here’s a clue: it’s at Market Street…..

If I’m not mistaken, I think the shop is still there – going strong after all these years! They specialized in Kain Pulikat, (the locals might know it as sarong) which was said to be made in India. They also¬†sold Kain Batek (Batik).

Here’s another landmark – our local Indian barber, which still does business at Belfield Street. My late grandfather used to visit him every month or so; I don’t think grandpa went to any other hairdresser in his lifetime!

These two sketches are part of Amiruddin Mohd Daud’s collection – titled ‘Ipoh Old Town’.¬†Amiruddin is a self-taught artist from Ipoh, and also a former student of ACS.¬†Together with his wife, they are quite involved with charity and fund raising activities; 10% of the sale of his drawings will go to MAKNA (Malaysian Cancer Council).
