17. Breakfast at 车仔面 food stall
When you’re in the small town, exploring some authentic home cook taste become an important mission. No point of having cafe style food as you can find plenties in Kl. Try out this 车仔面 food stall in Sitiawan. It’s not easily noticeable when you’re passing through the main road. You need to enter into a main gate and first seeing a warehouse alike store and this food stall is just right behind this warehouse store. Must try food – 太阳面包 ( sunny bread) signature & of course the very aromatic coffee. Do order their famous noodles – curry soup and fried kuey teow ( RM 5.00 per plate). The kuey teow is so superb and it comes with a generous amount of prawns and cockles. The kuey teow is prepared by an old lady. This is exactly the home cook taste I’m looking with.

Ipoh is commonly known by all Malaysians. Besides tons of good foods, mountains, fruits, caves, cultural streets and there are definitely something else that you can explore out of the norms – The haven lakeside resort. This chapter will be more focusing on this resort retreat and other delicacies out of ipoh town and will not involve other common attractions which are actively introduced at other blogs.
This resort is definitely the ideal place for family retreat. There is an unbelievably gorgeous infinity pool featured with 360′ degree limestone and mountain view. The pool is separated into multi layers with a man made hotspring. Imagining when you soak yourself into the hotspring pool at a silent night and above you is a starlit sky and surrounded by limestone and mountains. What a beautiful picturesque scenery. Try out this. You’ll have no regret. At least the price is more affordable than The Banjaran!
