Strip Club will never be legalised as this is Malaysial but if there some Tan Seri behind, you could run it for awhile. High class pub? even normal pub is dying one after another. 3D theatre but where to find so much 3D movie to film, if yes.. it will get pirated as well. How to go for Wine plantation when the Cameron temperature has been increasing?

Since you mentoned Ipoh lots of old rich ppl, one business surely to boom is Funeral Package Provider that is competiting fiercely now, more profitable than Wedding Gallery, as each package could fetch easily RM9,999 to RM19,999.

As for Ipoh Leng Lui, they are smart enough to market themselve to where they got the highest appreciation and value. Aboundant mining land could be turn into fishing pond provided you could attract enough crowd consistently.

US & kris,
Could some kind of well run, classier retirement home for the middle and upper middle class retirees work in Ipoh, since I hear everyone's talking about wealthy retirees coming to Ipoh to retire? I'm sure some of them may demand and want extra TLC & comfort. They also may not want to just to live by themselves for safety and convenience plus they may desire for well prepared meals served, along with basic health care provided by in house nursing staff. Do you think Ipoh has come to that stage yet or not?
OT

Classy 5-star old folks' home or retirement homes?

It works well in mat salleh land but I don't think there is demand for such set-up in M'sia, even in KL let alone Ipoh.

I don't think people are willing to pay for such facilities over here.

Besides, there is still the stigma attached to the aged living in old folks' home. The general perception is that their families and children no longer want to care for them and they have no choice but go to live in old folk's home. The culture of filial piety in Asia is still entrenched whereby children are expected to let their aging parents live with them and their families, provide for and take care of them, that is the 'extended family' concept.

The exception is when old folks are no longer mobile and fit to move around on their own or those who are incapacitated or bedridden. Fulltime care and medical treatment are required which their families are not in a position to provide. This is where the special homes come in, those which are adequately staffed and equipped to undertake the demanding tasks.

Ya, that's the one - as highlighted above - you should look into. $ spinner, that.

Seriously, it isn't possible, of course. Maybe a restaurant with an awesome menu and super low prices. Can do it Air Asia style. No frills. Just the good food. Will work, methinks.

Pirated DVD sellers in areas where demand is high but supply is low. Maybe like Pengkalan and Simpang Pulai.

Open a screw joint. Get chix from Russia, China, Pakistan and Thailand. Charge according to the number of tembaks/pancuts.

Serve drinks, provide pool table, hair salon and private viewing of dirty movies.

Provide promotion packages like home delivery, one free suck for every 2 pancuts and so on......

Can breakeven in 6 months
