  1. I liked the book, but found the pictures a bit boring and average. Nothing really jumped out as special? A bit disappointing.

  2. Hmmmmm, the pictures were a bit average, agreed. But its nicely presented and written though. I’m not sure about Mr. Halim’s pictures as being that great, taking into account what you see by other photographers, even amateurs these days. I’m 50/50 on this book, good team effort, but a bit also average on the pictorial.

  3. I think the pictures are just OK. Maybe nothing special sampah sarap? I have been to Ipoh and it was a rather boring place to be honest. Challenging photography taking. The people were charming and very friendly though. I returned the book and got a full refund. Just be sure you buy from a good book seller with refund if you are not happy. My choice Projek Rabak, in KL.

  4. I’ve visited Ipoh and loved its charm. The book is nice, pictures so so, Photo’s could be better. Just walk about Ipoh and anyone can snap the same pictures? but I loved Ipoh and hope the pictures don’t put visitors off.

  5. Nah gambarnya agak membosankan. Saya melawat Ipoh beberapa tahun yang lalu, dan sangat menarik, saya akan kembali.
    Tetapi foto itu tidak berlaku adil. Tidak ada kesalahan kepada Berbar, tetapi ini hanyalah gambar ringkas ?? Mungkin itu standard Arab? Dan tidak menyinggung perasaan orang Arab.

  6. Nice book but boring pictures. Waste of money if you buy for the pictures. I have lived in Ipoh and have friends living there, it’s a shame it’s reflected in this way.

  7. I also been to Ipoh. Its old world charm delightful. This book is very nice, but don’t like the pictures, could easily do better photographer. Text good, pictures not good.

  8. Having visited the lovely Ipoh, the pictures by Halim Redar Berbar were not that impressive and don’t do this charming city justice. No offense to Mr Redar Berbar but the pictures look less than average. Book itself was a high quality made hardback, but I would not honestly recommend it because of its lack of good photography.

  9. No offence but I agree the pictures are poor. My 9 year old daughter who loves taking pictures could do better. I visit friends who live in Ipoh and these pictures are very amatueristic. Halim Redar Berbar should be ashamed?

  10. Why don’t you show me how much better you are at taking pictures if you think the pictures are amatueristic? Adakah anda orang bodoh? The book is very good.
