There’s a spanking new hotel at the lake gardens which is setting the sleepy town abuzz. It’s called Flemington Hotel, and I’d say, though it is yet another 3 star hotel in Taiping, the decor and concept is way better than any other hotels in town and even, Ipoh *ahem*.
Oh, and they have a skybar too, which is beside the pool. The idea of having an open air rooftop bar is plausible, but unfortunately, the lake gardens are not lighted at night, so nothing can be seen from there. But still, I like the open concept. And the flat screen TVs too. Good for football nights with beer. =)

The skybar. OK, I confess, I forgot to set the ISO to the minimum, and went straight on shooting with slow shutter at ISO 640 and the image suffered some severe noise problem. But thank goodness NeatImage came to the rescue, albeit a faint effort and some loss of sharpness in some areas.

I did not take other parts of the hotel due to time and other constraints. Perhaps another time. Maybe I can saja-saja book a night there and have a feel of the room and service of the hotel. Keke.
