Most people love to live in the environment which is full of green. However, people also wish to be prosper through intensive economic growth. Manufacturing industry development is always in contrast with environment preservation. When we expand industrial estates for more factories, green has to always compromise and give way. For convenience and greed for wealth, it seems human being still do not attempt to stay at the balance point.

I believe this old signboard has been here for few decades. It seems the operation time for old clinic was longer than present. I just wonder whether it is still operating according to this schedule. The current practice to spell clinic in Malay is "klinik" but this one still remain "kelinik" with an extra E. So this this simple board can be a collection item for those who like old stuff.

In most developing countries, motorcycle is usually a popular vehicle because of its affordable cost and high mobility. Due to the advantage in mobility, motorcycles always appear in almost any places, including some unimaginable locations. In order to protect people from being knocked by motorcycle, some pathways or corridors have to implement access prohibition of motorcycle.

Some pedestrian traffic lights in city center have been replaced by this animated LED and countdown indicator, such as this one at junction of Brewster and Cockman Street. The device also plays sound with different pulse to indicate pedestrian of the traffic status. However, this pioneer animated LED indicator may not draw people’s attention because most of us do not walk on the street nowadays, but rather travel by motored vehicle.

Walking at Cockman Street, we hardly see big crowds like yester years. There are only cars roaring on the road. At the entrance of previous well known IT college, Informatics, the door has been shut for many years and the scene of groups of student moving around only appear in memory. It is now a relatively peaceful place for a tired old man to sit down and take a short nap.

Ipoh Parade is undergoing major renovation, transforming to be a modern shopping center. The fencing at 4th floor car park will most probably be removed. This view on Ipoh city through the fence will no longer available. Anyway, the building management shall ensure new safety feature will be installed to prevent any possible accident.

While most of us choose to drive a car, some senior citizen still prefer cycling, for one reason is that they do not have a driving license. And it is kind of torturing to cycle under the direct sunlight especially in the afternoon. Therefore, an additional arm cover and a big round hat are something must be worn in such extreme weather. In my opinion, it would be better if there also a pair of sunglasses.

Ipoh has recently became an aggressive city in constructing new buildings. Different from my past experience of hearing proposal to make big buildings which ended up as drawings on paper, this time I see physical works are progressing at several locations. As seen from the location nearby Tower Regency Hotel, I can see there are three construction projects being carried out, namely the Laman Bougainvillea Convention Centre, Ipoh Parade upgrading work & The Weil Hotel. If everything running well, I shall expect very different scene right here by next year.
