Short history of Ipoh & other Kinta townships

When I travelled back to Ipoh last Friday for Qingming, I brought with me for leisurely reading the 157-page Chinese-language oral history of Ipoh published in Kuala Lumpur in 2007 by Promethuus Enterprise. I have actually already started perusing it since late last year, but, on and off, some other events intervened and delayed the completion of the reading. Besides Ipoh, the oral history also covers other historical towns and major settlements in the Kinta Valley such as Mengelembu, Falim, Papan, Pusing, Tronoh, Batu Gajah, Kampung Timah, Kampar, Gopeng & New Kopisan, Pulai, Gunung Rapat, Pasir Pinji, Kampung Kuchai, Simee, Tambun, Tanjung Rambutan, Chemor and Jelapang.
