We visited Teluk Intan Leaning Tower around the town area on 5.6.2011. One of the most famous leaning tower in the world. Admission is free of charge. From outside, it looks like a 8 storey building. In fact, the building is divided into 3 storeys.
It is known as the High Clock Tower because of the clock on it is working right to this day.
We climbed up the tower to have a great view of the town. The condition of this water tank was still good. Much effort has been placed in preserving this treasure.
Throughout the long history of the tower, it has served different purposes. During the Japanese occupation, it was used as a watch tower.
This tower slanted leftward due to the soft ground on the base of the tower and the weight of the water tank.
On our way home, we stopped by Pun Chun Restaurant to have its famous duck leg noodles. One of the main attractions that attract visitors from outstation. Most of the time, the restaurant is packed with customers. Finally we found a table and made our orders.The waiter's service here not good. We had to wait for more than 15 minutes to make an order.
Besides selling noodles and other food, they also sell chicken biscuits, the famous Ipoh white coffee, tau sah bicuits and other famous local food.
Their duck noodles remain as one of the best on the list. You get a whole drumstick that has been roasted. The duck noodle soup is cooked with herbs, dried longan and ginger. For those who love herbal soup, this is a must try.
The woman is going to pour the whole steaming container of duck thigh with its herbal broth into a bowl of wantan noodles.
Other than their duck noodles, they also serve wantan noodles, various type of rice dishes, as well as economy rice option.
The noodles are quite springy and taste good. It costs RM5.50. A bit expensive.
We also tried out the 'wu kok', a kind of pastry which the crust is made from yam. Inside is filled with char siu meat and mushrooms. RM 1.60 a piece. The yam is not dripping with oil, the moist char siew pieces keep everything well.
Along the street where Pun Chun is located at, there are many fruit stalls. The traders setting up their stalls at the corridors along the road.
As we prepared to go home, we found a family run traditional biscuits and confectionery shop which called Ta Chong. We could not resist the aroma of freshly baked biscuits. They sell famous biscuits such as chicken biscuits, sat keh ma, egg tart and kaya kok.
