Ipoh Day Trip: A Visit to Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fah and Kong Heng Coffee Shop

During the semester of internship, I don’t need to write my practical report and submit it on time to my lecturer. What I need to submit is just a biweekly report instead. Despite I have been leaving early and returning late since my intern started, from Monday to Friday, but I have plenty of time to do whatever I like to do on my weekends. Let’s say, I grabbed the chance to visit Ipoh officially under the accompany and guidance of my friends.


Funny Mountain Soya Bean, was the place I met up with my friends in Ipoh. This is also the place I took the famous Tau Fu Fah and soyabean. Alot of customers were queuing when we just arrived there. Meanwhile, some customers were queuing by driving cars too. This is because drive-thru service is being provided here! Funny Mountain Soya Bean might be the first and only one Tau Fu Fah seller who offers the excellent drive-thru service in Malaysia.


This is puiyeng. She enjoyed her Tau Fu Fah even though she has been here with her family before.



Look at these two guys! They’re my friends, the left one called Wei Jian and the right one named Weng Hsiang. Jian is from Kuala Kangsar, he purposely come to Ipoh to join us while Hsiang is a local. Both of them always be the trip planner among my friends. Besides, Francies joined the day trip too. But, I don’t have her photo, you can’t see her beautiful face here. What a waste.

If you’re Tau Fu Fah or Soya bean lovers, you may visit to Funny Mountain Soya Bean to get one!


I had my brunch at Kong Heng Coffee Shop, which is located at the centre of Ipoh oldtown.  I ordered the well known Poh Piah and Kai See Hor Fun as my meal.


Steamed Poh Piah and Fried Poh Piah. Both are delicious equally. However, I prefer the fried one because it’s crunchy! XD *I like crunchy foods!



This is the famous Kai See Hor Fun (chicken kuey teow soup) in old town, Ipoh. Kai See Hor Fun is quite nice especially it’s prawn-taste soup added with Hor Fun. You must try this when you got the chance to visit here.


Besides, a food called Lor Bak (Marinated Minced Pork) that you can get at here. The perfect slice Lor Bak is nice to be served with the given chili sauce. You may eat it alone, nevertheless.

I highly recommend you to try this! With or without chili sauce? I prefer with chili sauce! Anyway, it can satisfy your taste bud either! =D

An awesome journey to Penang



Last time I forgot to mention the famous “Mua Zi”that you can get it at Gurney Drive. I have never eaten “Mua Zi”before, but I love it after I tried. XD I highly recommend you to try this!



We had some alcoholic drinks at a pub. It took us 5 minutes to travel from hotel to the pubs. We ordered Hoegaarden and Strongbow as our drinks. Strongbow is much more easily to be consumed by those who rarely take alcoholic drinks. This is because Strongbow is sweeter compared to others.



This is me! I’m enjoying my Hoegaarden at the pub. However, it caused me tipsy after I finished it. @.@ We hung out till 12pm at the pubs before we go back to hotel.



Yong Tau Fu. I got one from the hawker who sells this in front of the pubs before go back to hotel. Is it looks very weird when a Yong Tau Fu hawker sells this in front of the clubbing area? The thing becomes more weird when you take this after the alcoholic drinks. But, a different sense of satisfaction I gained from it compared to eating Yong Tau Fu in normal meal.



The next day, I visited Fort Cornwallis. I’m acting as army to shoot. Don’t be dirty-minded.



A beautiful girl besides the cannon.



These were taken at one of the biggest church in Penang, St George Church. 


This is my Penang trip. Penang is one of the place you must visit in Malaysia and its foods are very delicious too! XD I love Penang! Besides, I hope to visit Penang with Joseph they all again. =D

A date with my girl: Exploration to Penang


Do you know my name? LOL! It had been written obviously and hugely on the beach which shown above!

Hi, I’m Kokv! XD I would like to share with you about the places I went to few weeks ago.


I visited to several places in Penang which include the well-known Batu Ferringhi Beach. Batu Ferringhi Beach is an attractive and comfortable beach in Penang. A lot of activities you could do at the beach such as parasailing and jet skiing if you like water sports activity. How if you don’t like those activities? Hmm.. May be you could just lie on the seat and enjoy the breeze and beach view.



Or else, you could mimic the couples who were walking on the beach with bare legs and holding each other hand.



A nice shot of her shoes covered by the coarse sands.



This is me again! I’m Kokv! XD



This was taken by her when we were at Penang Hill. I really enjoyed the cold and fresh air on the hill. Of course, I also get to know more about the private villas with hundred years old.



This is the famous temple-Kek Lok Si’s cable car railway. Compared to Penang Hill’s railway, this is shorter and slower. X)



I had the most famous food in Penang – Asam laksa and sugar cane juice as our lunch after came down from Kek Lok Si. YUMMY!!




Penang Laksa is the big hit in town! I ordered it again as dinner at Gurney Drive. In addition, you must try the well known fried oyster and Char Kuay Teow in Penang!



Fried chicken skin!. You never forget to get this at Gurney Drive if you like to eat fried foods!




To be continue..
