What sounds like traditional office task in Asian town (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

taiping

'asian town' is the definition.
(Malaysian town)

'what sounds like traditional office task' is the wordplay.
'what sounds like' shows a homophone (sound like).
'traditional office task' becomes 'typing'.
'typing' sounds like 'TAIPING'.

'in' acts as a link.

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
