“Ipoh: Street, Sleek & Funky” tells of a time when families lived above their quaint colonial shop houses where they ran their businesses on the ground floor. Ipoh has always been well known for cultivating lifelong friendships. This city is where Ipohites still come home to revisit year after year bringing with them warm memories even though they have grown old and grey and have settled down with their family far away.

It brings to life the colourful street murals that have been beautifully painted on the walls of many old shop houses and back streets around Ipoh by local artist, Eric Lai.
