Yes lovely readers now we are at the capital city of Perak, Ipoh. My clients had their beautiful wedding (on the Groom's side) at the historical, colonial building of Ipoh Town Hall in the heart of Ipoh itself. Its clean, white paint just shouts the influence of the British colony.
The portraits of the Royal couple of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah and his Queen, Permaisuri Bainun.
The Kompang troop. They played so enthusiastically with the drums and everything seriously I felt like I want to get married at that very moment!
The Bridal Dais. Lovely, a slight touch of Garden Wedding concept, indoors.
Yes yes the food was simply delicious. Typical wedding food but the specialty was of course the Perakian traditional dish, the super , difficult to make Rendang Tok. I love it love love it! =)
Then we visited my Opah (my grandmother on my father's side) at Pengkalan Pegoh, a village in Ipoh as well. Before that check out some of the places we dropped by or at least freeze them in our camera.
A clock tower. In Ipoh everything must be old-school looking as always. That was one of the reasons the late film director, Allahyarham Yasmin Ahmad always chose Ipoh as one of the shooting locations. Ipoh is one sleepy, a bit back-dated but lovely lovely town.
A distant photo of the Ipoh Town Hall.
Masjid India Muslim Ipoh (Ipoh Indian Muslim Mosque).
And of course, the Ipoh Tree which originated the name of this town.
If you wish to read more about the relation of the name of this town with the tree, please click the photo above for a larger image.
Of course, if you are standing in front of the Town Hall, you would not miss another colonial design building opposite the Town Hall, the Keretapi Tanah Melayu station, the railway station of course. How cool it is to be riding a train but yup I never had the chance or taken enough initiative yet.

There's a hotel there you all, Hotel Setesen.
