There is a new publication of watercolour rendering drawings of Penang born artist, Khor Seow Hooi, which has a rendering of Panglima Lane as its cover. I had a very quick flip through when I was in KL over the weekend, it has renderings of Ipoh and Penang. I just got myself a copy via a online store. Smile

Koh Kee's food is good and inexpensive. I had many wonderful meals there and whenever I am in town, I will try my best to find my way there, no matter how short my stay is, just for old time sake.

Panglima Lane looks very different today when compared to the pic taken by Kayes on 21st August 2008. Many of the houses were still occupied then but not today. Most are in disrepair with the roofs having caved in. I spoke to a resident in one of the houses and he told me he has lived in the same house all his life, except for a brief period during the Japanese War.
I also saw some workmen busy cutting wood in one of the houses and one carpenter told me that a doctor had bought up 5 houses to be restored. Wonderful news indeed.

Honestly, I have not been to this part of town. Thanks Kayes and Blue Grass for taking the effort for these pics. Appreciate it very much! These houses look very basic except for the bat shaped air vents at the front. The simple design of the exterior reminds me as to how I drew houses during preschool - a triangle for the roof, a long rectangle for the door and two squares for windows - one on each side of the door. Smile This simplicity brings out the beauty of these houses and I sincerely hope this is what the restoration is for. To maintain and restore the original as much as possible - for the present generation to see and feel the way of life during that particular era or what we call red light area today. The interior is simpler - a long straight staircase to get to the top floor. Wondering if the restoration is for private residence or is it going to be a boutique hotel? I am sure once the restoration is completed, it will surely attract many visitors. Nothing is foreign, just local and it signifies our very own IPOH or Ee Poh!

Surprised to see the grandfather clock (second pic. from bottom) is still there even though the renovation has started. It's an antique to many. We bought one similar to this from an old clock shop in Slim River.
