Thus began my early morning train ride at 8am, so early the maintenance crew was still wiping down the coaches! Not many passengers and note I was in my qigong uniform ready for immediate action. Seats were comfy.
I was politely but uncomfortably seated like an upright lady (mum would have been proud) until a few stops into the journey when a very regular passenger (I guess) showed me how to really get comfy on the train. Sorry mum, I had to evolve too. I stuck my short legs out on top of my baggage into the passage way but did not block movement. My, what a difference in comfort level! Lots of construction to improve the tracks.
Ipoh railway station, an icon since 1894 when the original was first constructed. It still has the Moorish architecture with British India influence.
Arrived at the qigong centre to a full practice of over 30 members.
Although the practice stage is outdoors, the center was built with lots of greenery and orchids to bring temperatures down a little. Pitcher plants ... OUCH, don't eat my fingers!
