It improves the airflow for the washroom, and brings in more natural light as well!
In mid-2019, a guest informed us that she wanted to bring her mother back to Taiping for a visit. Her mother was old and frail with mobility issues, so she needed a wheelchair to go around and require care around the clock.
Our guest told us that her mother had not returned to her hometown for 30 years, and has not been able to meet her sister for all those years. That was what prompted her visit to Taiping, her mother’s hometown.
With her mother’s condition in mind, we made some special arrangements. We wanted to do our part to help fulfill her wishes, and we thus started by adding ramps to certain areas of the house. There was a ramp at the entrance of the bathroom, and one from the living room towards the dining area. Our lovely guests turned out to stay at Jiran58 comfortably for 3 nights, and she fulfilled her mother’s wishes to reunite with her long-lost sisters.
She expressed her thanks to us for helping to realize her mother’s wish, but this gratitude certainly doesn’t go on a one-way street. We were also thankful for her faith in us and the unique opportunity that she provided us with as well!
I think it’s fair to say that every guest that comes by Jiran58 is special to us. Each brings a unique story to Jiran58 – some were here for vacations, some for visiting relatives, some to attend wedding dinners and some were here to take part in marathons!
We also had a few guests who held wedding ceremonies at Jiran58, making our place a part of our guests’ life stories forever.
Jiran58 is located within a residential area, which is also within a walking distance to town. From here, you can easily navigate to Taiping Lake and visit tourist spots such as the morning market, the clock tower and so on just on foot! It’s that close.
You can find plenty of restaurants around here, as well as a 99 Speedmart and a Maybank branch.
I would like to recommend the Teochew Fishball Fried Kuey Teow, Jawa Noodles, Ansari Cendol, Pokok Asam Laksa, Duck Egg Char Kuey Teow and Chee Cheong Fun at Siang Malam. I also fully commend Hor Ka Sai at Old Master Nanyang Chef Café and the salted coffee from Uncle Chuan Kopitiam. You’ll need to try it to know it!
