An accidental trip to Ipoh, Malaysia
An accidental trip to Ipoh, Malaysia

The next morning, I woke up and took a cab for $2 to the place my friend from the train had recommended for Ipoh white coffee: Sin Yoon Loong, in Old Town. I walked into a bustling restaurant and, with permission, pulled up a chair at a nearly full table and ordered a cup from the waitress. Instead of writing anything down, she simply shouted out,“Coffeeeeeee!” Five minutes later, I had a piping hot cup in front of me and a polite request for 50 cents.
