Ipoh Mali!

This is ipoh tree. My hometown is named after this tree. Last Saturday, for the first time in my life, I took a rain from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh. Took this opportunity to snap some photos around the railway station.

The building was designed by Arthur Benison Hubback and was opened in 1935. The Majestic Hotel is located in this building. Great architecture, don't you think?

Ipoh City Council building

During the last few trips, passed this so-called antique shop couple of time but it was closed. This time I was lucky. It was opened. Was a bit disappointed because there were not many items in the shop but was informed that the shop will be moved to a new and unknown location (at this point) . Bought a tapestry clutch. The clutch is in mint condition with price tag.

Not much luck last weekend at the Salvation's Army thrift store. Perhaps it was a good thing. Anyway, bought a colour block bag which screams 1980's. The bag needs a bit of cleaning and will be ready to rock in any outfit.

Now, I have to think a place to store these lovely bags...
