Five years, eight years? When I really recall how long have I not climbing the Kledang Hill, then only I realized it has been more than ten years. Finally I am at Kledang Hill again today. I choose not to go by the tar road but following the small path. Anyway, it has changed so much where some people had spent so much effort making the steps to ease the climbers. However, one thing never change; it's the awesome view on Ipoh city still amazing. I am not reaching the higher spot for the entire Ipoh city view, but what the southern part of Ipoh is already in sight.

MH Hotel is now the easiest recognized structure around Ipoh Garden East & Bercham. It's the tallest building right at the North Ipoh exit of North-South Expressway. However, there was very little official publicity from the hotel. Therefore many people who do not always passing by this area may not aware of the completion or even existence of MH Hotel. As seen from Bercham, the hotel is just so outstanding in the sunset.

When I walk into De Garden, the theme color become red just to match the Chinese New Year. In the year of Dragon, beside traditional red lantern, dragon is certainly one of the most popular decoration features. Of course, plum flower is also another favorite item which you can see at home, offices, hotels, restaurants & etc.

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. Welcome to the year of dragon. As Chinese believe dragon is the creature that brings luck, many are wishing 2012 to be a better year in all aspects. We can even expect a higher birth rate of Chinese baby in this year. Nevertheless, I wish all to have a happy, healthy & peaceful Dragon year!! ~~新年快樂~~

As we know the row of shop at Clare Street has been demolished in November last year, many would feel sad of the lost of one of the heritage buildings in town. By the way, the new building to be built will looked alike the original design. However, this new building will be a 3 1/2 storey structure with a garden at its top floor. Well, since the old one cannot be retrieved anymore, let's expect something nice to appear in near future.

It's raining in the morning when everyone rushing to work. When I stuck in congested traffic, a beautiful rainbow appears in the sky. It didn't last long but just few minutes. I wonder how many of us who are rushing to work realize the existence of this nice scene in the morning.

Belfield Street at night not that lonely now. It's decorated with some red lantern for Chinese New Year which is just around the corner. Although there are not many but it makes the old street more charming at night. If the shops alongside are occupied, I believe there would be more decorations & the scene will certainly more attractive.

It should be a nice experience to hang around at the podium roof level and have some drinks, while enjoying the scenic view from the higher spot over surrounding area of Ipoh Garden East & Bercham. Sky Lounge of MH Hotel is now offering this brand new concept to Ipoh citizens. The lounge is set to open on 18-Jan-2012 and I am sure it will be a must-go destination for many youngsters.

What a clear & bright morning in Ipoh. When looking towards Kledang Hill, trees & telecommunication towers on the hill can be seen clearly under the cloudless blue sky. Weather of recent days started shifting away from the routine where raining season seems to reach the end. There will be more sunny & warm days when closer to Chinese New Year.

While we have more & more cars on the road, we may have less parking space. Not only in downtown, there are some commercial blocks in residential area being a piece of hot cake. Every inch of land is so valuable and people would think of any method to secure their territory. This is seen in the busiest spot in First Garden where barriers are being setup to ensure the space reserved for a stall, although this is not an official lot assigned by city council for street business.

After about 2 years of construction, Kinta Riverfront Hotel is finally open to public on the first day of 2012. However, the work on these buildings has not fully completed. Despite the hotel block opens for operation, the adjacent suites apartment block still under construction for final touch up. Anyway, Kinta Riverfront has change the skyline of Ipoh city & offers a new spot to accommodate the visitors. Although it's not as luxury as it's promoted, the setup is still quite presentable. And the remarkable thing is it has Ipoh's first glass view elevator where passenger can enjoy the beauty of Ipoh city when moving upwards in the hotel.

Most of the people are still enjoying the new year holiday today. However, crowd at Kinta City has reduced & congestion is not seen at the roof top car park of the mall. It's a warm day & the sky is relatively clear compared to those rainy days last week. I just able to capture the moment of beautiful sunset.
