Favorite thing: It is official: BIG Cinema, run by Lotus FiveStar Group who operates similar cinemas across the country (including Sitiawan) has opened in Teluk Intan. It is located at the former site of Rex Cinema. The pulling down of Rex Cinema means the oldest surviving cinema in Teluk Intan is officially no more. This new cineplex is said to have 3 halls, sitting maximum 150 people each. Not bad for Teluk Intan…
Favorite thing: After school, boys and girls were waiting for parents or buses to pick them up, I stopped my car here to ask them about directions to buy biscuits, they seemed so proud to point to me the way, so happy.
Favorite thing: Kiung Chow Hoey Kwan is like a club for early days Chinese immigrants, for them to seek helps and meet friends from same village. Most old towns in Malaysia has at least one or two, is a must then but not much of use in modern days.
Favorite thing: St Anthony school, Jalan Sekolah,36000 Teluk Intan. This is an old British colonial school if I not mistaken, the outlook told me this school is built then. Location is in town center, next to the big Inidan temple, not far away is the leaning tower.
Favorite thing: Lots of Indian peoples around, sure need an Indian temple, simple theory, and this is a big one in Teluk Intan town center, not that big actually, quite easy to locate especially suc obvious look, is near to the Christianity school.
Favorite thing: Obviously one can see this is a Malaysian-Indian’s property, it is a hall built for the Indian peoples, they were peoples migrated to old Malaya in the last century. I saw in Teluk Intan town center quite many Indian peoples, my common sense told me they are the descendants of their forefathers, agree?
This is one of the famous town to repair or create a new deisgn.....
Boatmaking is an interesting activity to watch and through the centuries, it has also become a much-prized skill among the coastal villagers of Perak. This activity has given rise to numerous boatmaking yards along the coast of the town of Teluk Intan.
At the Teluk Intan Boatyards, visitors can watch the boatmakers – builders and craftsmen rolled into one – as they set about making their fishing vessels from chengal.
The tough and heavy hardwood obtained from this tree, which is unique to Malaysia, possesses a durability which makes it very suitable for boats as it is able to withstand the effects of sea-water. Since these wooden boats are fine at sea, they are certainly capable of being used for riverine fishing as well.
Favorite thing: I seldom visit church but this one attracts my eyes, without think twice, I captured it. Guess all churches are the same, so I can save time writting this tip.
Favorite thing: Kopitiam (coffee shop) is not my choice, I prefer a place where I can see more customers fighting for tables, this one obviously never near the level yet, not a good idea.
Favorite thing: Village house is obviously wooden made, traditional look, the location is in town center, very funny in fact to see a village house inside the town, interesting.
