VIDEO: Weekend In Ipoh Part 1: Day And Night In Ipoh

Weekend In Ipoh Part 1: Day And Night In Ipoh

I'm going to be doing a 2-part video of my stay in Ipoh last weekend. (from the 9th to the 11th of December, I posted my entry about the badminton craze in my country during this period)

Ipoh is a city in Malaysia that's the capital of the state of Perak, just a 2-3 hours away from Kuala Lumpur (it really depends on how fast you drive :D). It's the hometown of my mom, and also international movie star Michelle Yeoh (of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and Memoirs of a Geisha fame). YES, to the uninitiated, Michelle Yeoh is MALAYSIAN, she's not from Hong Kong, nor China, nor Taiwan.

Anyway, Ipoh is known for its great food (you'll be able to see one of those fabled Malaysian food courts towards the end of the video), and pretty girls. However, the amount of pretty girls in Ipoh had dwindled these days due to the fact that they had all moved to Kuala Lumpur, attracted to most hunkilicious KLian guys like me (although being born in Singapore, I also carry some sort of magnetic attraction possessed by those rare attractive Singaporean hunks), which makes me even more dangerously attractive, I think.

So, in this video, you'll get the chance to see what my visit was like in Ipoh, my grandmother lives there, along with many of my relatives. My mom has seven siblings, and each of them has their own family... so do your maths and imagine how crowded my grandmother's house is everytime some of them are gathered at her place.

Music, like my previous 'Farewell Perth, Hello Ipoh' video, is from Adrianna Krikl.

The second part will be interesting. Hehe.

Tell me what you guys think of this video too.
