Haven't been to Ipoh so I was excited to have a bowl of their popular Ipoh noodles! We waited for more than 30 minutes for our noodles because we went there at lunch time and there were a lot of locals having their lunches there too.

Sar Hor Fun (Chinese : 沙河粉) - Ipoh is famous for its flat rice noodles, which is prepared with local unfiltered spring water. There are two varieties: Kai see hor fun (Chinese : 鸡丝河粉) is served in a clear chicken and prawn soup with chicken shreds, prawns and spring onions.

We also ordered a chee cheong fun, beansprouts and Thean Chun’s caramel egg custard which was said to be a MUST-try.

We loved the chee cheong fun so much! It was really different from what we have in Singapore but we couldn't finish the caramel egg custard, it was too sweet for our liking.

We walked on to find all the Ipoh Old Town graffiti walls! Love told me there were 6 but after I came back to pen this post, I googled and found that there were actually 7! We didn't capture Evolution because there were some renovations to the wall and we didn't even get to see Trishaw. Boohoo!

Here's the map to the 7 walls!

We also visited a temple, Ling Sen Tong Temple, which was just nearby before heading back! This is the most colorful temple that I have been to! And it has  photo 262181fc-76f8-4d81-a747-cb8e6745a0c4.jpg

Headed back to our apartment and took a nap before we made our own dinner!
On the first evening, we went grocery shopping to get some simple food to cook together! We wanted to use the kitchen in our apartment but cause it didn't have any cooking essentials like oil, salt so we could only think of making pasta!

Nothing fancy, but we really enjoyed our time together making dinner!

P/s: Only on our way back to Singapore that love realized that we forgot to take the garlic bread out from the freezer! To think, he chose the most expensive garlic bread to accompany our soup!
