These townships were so populated by the Hakka that even many of the non-Chinese people spoke Hakka. Eventually however, most of the Chinese people in the Ipoh area adopted Cantonese, the main dialect of Ipoh town, as their lingua franca. Menglembu "may be" one of the oldest towns in Ipoh. The below shoplot is one of the pre-war shops, built in 1906. It is one of the very few left in the Menglembu town.
