Oh my, I just finished packing my stuffs, not much though. It finally arrived - The Start of My New Semester. I am leaving tomorrow and quite a number of my friends are leaving this weekend. I am pretty sure that I would stuck in a chaotic traffic jam and human jam all at once(><). Anyway, 4 months of relaxation, boredom, and last minute busy-ness, I am ready to go back and my friends, may I warn you, I look chubbier than ever!!!![In short, I am fat] Prepare for my huge return! So, as I had said earlier, mixture feelings are unavoidable - happy, nervous, nostalgic, ..... Oh well, life goes on and like most people, when we are out there, home is the light that drives us to the top(^^)~~~~
Okay, recently, I was scanning some old photos of my mom and dad's. Yup, during their younger days, just like the teenagers now, they like to take pictures(^^). and I am the one who have to scan all their photos which most of them are older than me into the PC. Omg, the scanner is ultra slow! It took me about 2 - 3 hours to scan a whole album~~~(@@)..... Then, when we were looking back at those photos, my mom said that when she was young, she would go to Ipoh along with her friends to Japanese Garden Ipoh and then, they would visit the famous Octagon Building [八角楼] for meals. Well, until now, the Japanese Garden is still here yet lack of care and preservation where as Octagon Building was demolished a long time ago. and its land is used as a parking space(What a waste!). However, according to the newspaper, Ipoh is considering rebuilding this once famous building into a tourist landmark.(Hope this comes true)
Yes, this is the old Octagon Building... Back then, they said that it was a liability to the safety of the citizens. Therefore, it was knocked down.[Original Link]
Now, a glance back to Japanese Garden Ipoh. Well, I am quite sure that not many Ipoh-rians nowadays go to the Japanese Garden Ipoh. [More info on its location] Even my mum who used to go there, haven't visited this place for ages. Well, I am a curious person! I want to witness the once-famous Japanese Garden Ipoh.....Yes, this is the Japanese Garden Ipoh or Taman Jepun Ipoh or イポーの日本庭園 or 怡保日本花园。。。。。(Haha, I just stopped my Japanese Language class. I miss it already!) Well, according to my mum , the arrangement of the garden was still the same. Yet, it was not as nice as it used to be.
Anyway, it is just a glance back to Japanese Garden Ipoh before I leave. KL, here I come! After staying there for 2 years, I am used to the traffic jams and always delay KTM...Cross-finger....tomorrow no jam and no delays...which is highly impossible!
