It's 31st August, the Malaysian National Day. This is the day to celebrate the nation's 56 anniversary of independence. As usual, national flags are flying everywhere and parade is held in front of Town Hall in the morning.

Downtown of Ipoh has been changing drastically in the past 3 decades. Scene of bustling streets during years of 1970's and 80's no longer exist. For the generation that lived here for more than half a century, it would be dreary when walking with his lonely steps on the previously busy five-foot-way.

If you don't know him, you are certainly disconnected from the modern world :) Being the hottest character nowadays, this little yellow creature Minion is seen everywhere. You can find it on balloon, stickers, smartphone cover, profile photos in social networks, school bags, t-shirt, slippers, you name it..... To be honest, it is really funny and adorable and I am also a fan of it.....LOL...... Bee do bee do bee do ~~~~~~

Just wondering this a case of ignorance or lack of responsibility of the worker when fixing this traffic camera signboard. Should I consider it a "reverse camera" just because it is placed up-side-down? The work quality of our government is never on par with the facilities provided and salary given (or tax paid by the taxpayers). Under the slogan of moving towards developed nation, simple and unforgivable mistakes still occur everywhere. While we claim we are a successful country with our man travelled to the outer space, what a joke that the people on the ground still make mistakes like stone age man.

Performance of the city council is getting worse in maintaining the city appearance. Rubbish is found everywhere on the road, five-foot way, road shoulder, drain, garden and park. Plants and trees grown by the council years ago were not taken care and many have been missing or replaced by a little jungle like this. I have just visited the southern Thailand city of Hatyai, which I found they are doing much more better than our local authorities in keeping their city clean. What a shame to our MBI.

Ipoh skyline is changing in the recent years, though not a drastic one, it's still noticeable. Scene is not the same from the previous post in 2010 which taken at the same location. Cranes and buildings are rising. There are also many more new businesses and fresh ideas landing in the city. Ipoh is entering a dynamic era after decades of stagnancy.

This blog have been established for more than 4 years, which I was never expected at the beginning. For many of my post, there are colourful sun rise and sun set photos. And in this post of 1000th, another beautiful painting in the sky is posted. Although the blog seemed to move a little slow due to my busy working life, but I will continue to share beautiful images of Ipoh as reciprocation to those who love to read this blog. Thank you for your support all the while :)

I bet there are still many Ipoh citizen do not aware that we have already got a Times Square in the city. It is, indeed not a new commercial centre but just renamed from previous 1-Casuarina by Team Keris. Anyway, for a place that carry the name "Times Square", it is always a landmark of trendy, elegance and glamorous. And this commercial park is certainly not on par with our expectation.

The city council is planting various types of tree around the city, but I find this is one of the best, tidiest and nice looking. The tree normally don't grow oversized and its multi layer umbrella-like shape looked beautiful. Its small leaf would have reduce burden to the scavenger. And from my personal view, it could even make the historical Station Road more charming.
