  • Drop by Bidor's Pun Chun Restaurant...

    Drop by for very nice Duck Drumstick Noodle. Besides, it's also well known for its Wanton Noodle, though i think its Duck Drumstick noodle is the best! The bad point is, it costs more expensive than usual. May be because of their fame. The waiter's service also not good. We have to waited for more than 10 min (non-peak hour, 8 pm) for order of...

  • Coffee is ok but Kuey Teow .....

    Recently dropped by to visit a friend in this slow but laid back town. Stopped for tea at the above cafe opposite the bus station.

    TI "Chee Cheung Fun" (CCF), a must try local snacks! There are many brands (e.g. Sam Siu Yeh) but Liew Kei is my favourite.

Moreover this Liew Kei was recommended by the local press for at least twice within three years.Fillings are fried dried shrimps and "char siew"...

    Teluk Intan Golf Club

    by chiabh Updated Sep 15, 2009

    The golf club started off as the Diamond Bay Golf and Country Club... Subsequently, it was then run by the Majlis Perbandaran Teluk Intan before being turned over and run under the existing Management by a group of golfers...

    The 18-holes par-72 course is rather flat with oil palm trees lining the fairways... Water comes into play in a number of holes but is not a great threat... The First Nine plays to 3,192yds from the blue tees while the Second Nine plays to 3,236yds... Course condition at time of play in Sept 2009 is fair and can be further improved... Some of the teeboxes are overgrown but the greens are quite well maintained...

    Equipment: There is the normal man and lady changing room as well as a small golfers terrace for drinks and light meal... There is also a pro-shop within the rather spacious club house... Only turfmates are available for use of golfers...

    The green fee for weekdays is RM26.50 (9-holes) and RM36.75 (18-holes)... Weekend green fee is RM42.00 (9-holes) and RM57.75 (18-holes)... Turfmate charges are RM12.60 (9-holes) and RM25.20 (18-holes)... All charges are nett of tax...

    the clubhouse... from hole #18 fairway... the pond along the fairway... another view of the fairways... the entrance to the clubhouse...

  • Church

    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.

  • Kopitiam (coffee shop)

    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.
