Ipoh is a little town that brings out the olden cultures and tradition into the modern edge era. In the recent years, cafes have recently began sprouting up with all kinds of concepts and ideas, some of which portrays perfectly some people's childhood and nostalgic moments. This mix of quirky and creative cafes soon became the local hangout spots and tourist attractions, but some of which are pretty well hidden within a façade of old buildings and alleys. I paid a visit to Jose & Deli eatery at Ipoh. I was so attracted with their interior design and the cozy ambiance with some wooden decoration and plant. (yes — this travel blog post is LONG OVERDUE since my trip to Ipoh if you have been a fan of my travel blog). Nevertheless, i hope it's never too late to share the pictures of my remaining story on Ipoh.
Street food is a staple of Japanese life. Japanese street food is most commonly found during the many festivals that happen throughout the country, and during events there's more than ample opportunity to get your street food fix. Packed with colourful yatai or “street food vendors” street food offerings include various regional sweet and savoury delicacies. Some of the most amazing street food that Japan has to offer will be tucked behind colorful stands with gleefully shouting vendors. More than the novelty or even the quality of the food, which varies from stall to stall, it is the convivial atmosphere of yatai that makes them memorable. Sadly, these traditional pushcarts are being replaced by motorized vans, which are not nearly as romantic and do not offer seating. I took a walk down the street side yatai stalls that offer inexpensive treats in my recent trip to Tokyo.
Today is the sixth year blog anniversary of That's Life, Capture Life photography blog! Every day I am surprised and amazed at all the wonderful people and opportunities that this blog has brought into my life. Time has flown by during these six years of blogging. Journaling my weeks, learning different writing techniques, expanding my love for photography and travelling around the world.
Blogging sometimes feels as though i am swaying like grass on a breeze. The ups, the downs, the being knocked sideways. But, I always believe that if i am steadfast and true to myself, my words will remain and the world seen through my eyes will give comfort and happiness to more people than I would ever know.
So, at this point I will celebrate my blog anniversary with a simple thank you to all that have stopped by, those who read regularly, the people who leave comments (here, on social media, through email, and in person), and the people in my life who both inspire me to keep writing and tolerate the commitment that I continue to make to my writing. You're wonderful !
I look forward to seeing what’s to come and continuing to share it with you for at least six more years. Thank you so much for continued support and encouragement.
