I have been back to my hometown since last evening to visit mother and also chat with old and new friends like Belinda. Many shops and places have already been decorated with Christmas trees and other symbols of the holy day that has become an organic part of the socio-cultural landscape of Ipoh which was also historically known as Paloh.

May Mrs. Sybil Kathigasu' s spirit shine forever

I went to Ipoh this morning. I did not have time to visit Jln Sybil Kathigasu or Clare Street despite these are the only 2 street names in Ipoh that I can rembember.

From very far I saw the facade of St. Michael was nicely restored but I wonder why they used glazed tiles for the roof.

I had a surprise while I was at the Ipoh Railway Station. They keep and reuse the old timber bences at the new extension of the station.

We are celebrating 50 years of merdeka but I think we should thank British for their contribution to our build heritage and town planning. Ipoh is a good example.
