Ipoh Funny Mountain Soy Bean

We only spent a couple of days in Ipoh, but my wife insisted and braved the heat so she could drink some soy milk at Funny Mountain.  Considering how much she hates walking in the sun, this is just one proof and and a testament to the amazing good taste of Funny Mountain.
