TAIPING - TAI means "Very" PING means "PEACE". So, TAIPING in Mandarin it means "Very Peaceful" - Very lovely name!!


P.S. Wonder if the cute little red bridge is still there?

Thank you!!Kayes, you are so welll organized. Thumbs Up!


I am trying to look for a swimming pool (pic) in Taiping but I am not sure which pool was that. My toe was cut (Touching the scar now! Sad) while swimming in that pool. It happened while climbing out of the pool after swimming. The banks of the pool was not tiled and the cement surface was very rough. Almost faited after seeing my own blood.


By the way, are there how many pools in Taiping?

Not very sure.... I remember the banks of the pool was not tiled or was it the workmanship?



One more question....Not only you have loads and loads of pics but you are pretty well organized. How do you do it?? Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up!

I use Macs and they have this wonderful software called iPhoto. It does everything for me Smile

When I was a kid (without mum's knowledge) and followed some relatives to Taiping for Chinese New Year visiting. A big Ang Pow indeed!! Smile

I think most likely that was the pool. They call it the Coronation Pool but it is now closed for renovations. Here's another pic. Ring any bells?

Hi susan s
I think that Kayes got the right pool "the cornonation pool" i used that pool many times back in 1962 and you had tobe very careful getting out as the sides
were finished in roughcast concrete :-((

Hello gadzy!! Smile
September 19, 2008 3:29am

Kayes, the word "Coronotion" indeed rings a bell!! Thanks for the troubles {pics).


Your software iPhoto must be very expensive! I manage to handle softwares like Page Maker; In Design and Adobe Photoshop - just to survive since my immediate boss's memory is very high tech.; the task given to you today and he expects it to be on his table YESTERDAY!!! Sad

Hi Susan, iPhoto is a free program which comes pre-installed with every Mac. It is indeed an excellent software for photos.


No problem about those 2 pics of the Coronation Pool. I still don't know what year you were referring to when you asked how many swimming pools there are in Taiping. In the 60s and 70s, there were the Coronation Pool and the New Club's swimming pool at the foot of Bukit Larut. I liked that old New Club pool. The water was always freezing no matter what time of day and the pool was built on a hillside which made it unique. Right now in Taiping, I think there are only two pools. One is the New Club's new swimming pool at the clubhouse in town and the other is at the hotel (forgot name) at Bukit Jana in Kamunting. The Coronation Pool is under renovations. I wonder whether there is one at the Chinese Recreation Club which underwent extensive renovations a few years ago. There are a few private pools and one of them I have been to is at a house off Upper Museum Road which was rented out to the HSBC Bank to house their Taiping Branch Managers.

Kayes, it is not important which pool it was but the most important thing is I still like Taiping and love to post in the New Taiping Talk Forum. After all, it was only a small scar measuring less than 1cm. and it is on the side of the toe more towards the foot palm. So it is not very visible anyway.


As for computers, Mac is always the better choice. In fact, my computer was a Mac SE30 (Mono-Chrome). It was a "Hand-Me-Down". It came with a bag so the SE30 could be carried from place to place conveniently. Most of my assignments were done using this SE30. Even though I am not using it, I am still keeping it. Sayaaaaaang my SE30!! Smile

hello to another Apple fan Smile I had a SE30 too which I gave away to my niece in the early 90s. She is now a true Mac lover and uses a MacBook Pro and an iPhone. Right now I use an iMac (3.06 GHz), a MacBook Air and a few older Macs with a couple of iPods. You have no idea how much joy they provide me Smile
