Mun Tien was located at the present Bridal Collection shop. Mun Tien wife's parents own a coffee shop in "Ling Lor" (Kalai? This small town is somewhere near Lenggong).

There are two places near Lenggong. One is a riverside town nearer to Kuala Kangsar called Karai and the other one nearer to Lenggong is a village called Ayer Kala. Could it be any of these places?

Karai is an interesting place. It is hardly 20 minutes from Kuala Kangsar using the old trunk and is some sort of cul-de-sac. Along the way, you can see many scenic Malay houses on stilts. The old Victoria railway bridge was right in Karai town and I think it is the oldest bridge in the country.

Hi Joe,


I'm getting more confused now! Smile It's either Kala or Karai but I think it's Karai - a typical case where "R" is pronounced as "L". Smile


I was told the shop is a long corner shop. The toilet is situated right at the back of the shop where people from the back lane can peep through the toilet window. Bedrooms are at the upstairs. I think I have been to that coffee shop once but not very sure. I always get it mixed up with another coffee shop in Menglembu where the layout is the same: long corner shop, toilet is only two steps away from the back lane and all bedrooms are upstairs. Smile

Hello Kayes,


Thank you for that interesting infor. about Karai town. I always like to know more about the history of my birth state - Perak.

Hi Orange,
I think all the old shops were built with the same design, Extra long. I remember being in one of these 'long' shops in Melaka and was really surprised that it was really long.

You are right about those old shop houses, Joe.


Many of these extra long old shop houses have been converted into many (I think it's more than 5 or 6) individual shops with individual frontage. Odean cinema in KL is one of these buildings that has been converted into many small shops with individual frontage.
