During my recent trip to Ipoh, I passed by Gunung Rapat on the outskirt of Ipoh town which is famous for its Hiong Piah.What is Hiong Piah? 'Hiong' in chinese means 'fragrant' and 'Piah' means 'biscuit'. It is type of biscuit which is bake til crispy on the outside and has a sticky sweet filling on the inside. What is so special about this biscuit in Gunung Rapat is that it is charboil which means it uses charcoal to bake it. It has a nice crunchy shell with a fragrant aroma when you bite into it.
This is how Hiong Piah looks like...................
The other address in Ipoh town is :-
Yee Hup Enterprise
151, Jln Sultan Iskandar
Tel: 605 242 3200
Ipoh can be called the city of hills or Hillcity because it is surrounded by lovely limestome hills that cannot be seen anywhere else. Even the Menora tunnel were cut through a hill when they built the North-South highway.
The shit spoilt my scenery............!
Last Saturday night, my son no.2 and I had dinner at Gurney and I was thinking of doing some shopping after dinner....but during our dinner my son's phone keeps ringing from his friends who were inviting him to you know whatlah....cybercafeloh! Some of them were already waiting for him outside our apartment...so poor mummy have to gobble up food fast..fast...even when son said 'no hurry mum'...So off we hurried to the carpark after my son managed to buy himself a McFlurry ice cream....(lucky for him to do that).
I let my son drive because he said mummy always so slow and since he was in a hurry I obliged.After moving a minute , we were caught in a jam in the basement...damn it ! for nearly an hour...see video people horning like mad...(Just want to test this new video uploading by bloggers.com)...Luckily we had the icecream between us to enjoy and had some mum and son talk - time and also took part in some silly horning..........
