A Great Day With The Extended Family @ Concubine Lane, Ipoh

When my new daughter Elaine came visiting with her mom and her sister, WB and I took them to eat in old town, Ipoh but her favorite shop was closed on that day...anyway, since we were in the vicinity, we visited Concubine Lane which has turned into a tourist attraction.  The place was crowded with tourists from Singapore and northern state.  Quite interesting I would say. Even though I eat in old town most of the time when I do my banking, I hardly step into Concubine Lane. I was amazed at how the lane has turned into a busy place.  

Why is it named Concubine Lane ? In the old days, rich chinese tycoons were supposed to have kept their concubines and mistresses in the townhouse here.  Thus, the naming of this lane - Concubine Lane.
