Been too busy lately with job interviews & convocation matters this week so THIS is kinda stale but nevertheless, an experience...
U see, I was born in Taiping, Perak so there will always be this THING between me & this place that is very close to my heart.
So when Mama & Akak wanted me to come along to attend a wedding in Taiping last weekend, I couldn't say NO eventhough I was reluctant at first.
It was my uncle's wife's little brother's wedding...
(FEWH! such a loong connection)
We departed from K.L at around midnight & arrived at dawn.
Then we went straight to the bride's side Kenduri at Parit Buntar.
And THIS is the result of car lag & lack of sleep:
After that, my uncle brought us to see his wife's kampung nearby.
Taiping is known to be the wettest ( is that correct?) city in peninsular Malaysia, if I'm not mistaken. So when the Rain City itself is not raining, just imagine the rest of the country...
Its CRAZY HOT!!!
But what else is best to quench the summer sun rather that a bowl of Taiping's famous:
When we arrived at the Kenduri, to our amazement, my uncle brought the Cendol's Mamak to prepare cendol for guests!
This is even better!
We can eat our hearts out for FREEEEEEEE!!!!!
When we decided to tour the town later that evening, it is only then it rained...
Not forgetting the special Char kuey teaw & Air Amra ( Kedondong juice )
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
an old town that never fails to excites me in new ways...
