Dear Lady of Starbucks...

OPEN UP YOUR CAFE IN ALOR STAR! Dear Lady of Starbucks, you have already opened up a new store at Village Mall, Sungai Petani and so, why dont you come down here open up another one? We citizens here have been craving for your cup of coffee since forever!

This is the the new one in Sungai Petani. Bleh, I hate this city....


Jap(anese) Weekend

This morning was Music Station on Animax, featuring Hot by Avril Lavigne in Japanese. It was very ridiculous.

Now these sushis from the French supermarket, Carrefour!

My mom got these while she and my sister in Penang. My first sushis this year. I was too excited that I only took two photos of the sushis. My mom bought the salmon roe, crab meat rolls, smoked salmon and assorted roes with some wasabe. I always loved sushi!

Vibrant Star

I realised that Alor Star is quite the city now. I mean all the lights, the busyness of cars on the road and the people. You can really see the real Alor Star at night with all the lights especially during festive season like now the Chinese New Year. I just got back from having a dine-out in downtown of Alor Star.

We (grandma, sister and me) went to Giant first for some groceries. People were packed there, not sure why but it seems that all the Chinese have nothing to do at home during the Chinese New Year. Instead they went out to shop at hypermarket, how business-wise is that to Giant. Then we went to eat at the city's renowned Nasi Lemak Haji Ali, located at Seberang Perak, along the Persiaran Sultan Abdul Hamid. To be honest and shame on me, this was my first time with them. I think this is way much better than Nasi Royale (they're located throughout the city!).

I just love the atmosphere of Alor Star at night. I think it's very energetic and vibrant. Not as vibrant as Penang or KL, but good enough to feel the change since the last few years. I honestly saw a new club opened near Alor Star Tower.

So far I've been to a few restaurants and food outlets in Alor Star including Damiral's Grill, Uno Cafe, City One and Nasi Lemak Haji Ali is new to the list. I must say that Nasi Lemak Haji Ali is the best. The food was okay (typical mamak Nasi Kandar) but the environment is quite nice. You eat your food by the busy Persiaran Sultan Abdul Hamid, entertain yourself by getting together with your friends, talk about everything till late night and just enjoy the company! Seriously, it's a nice place to hang out...

So Low... Indonesia~!

My sister and my mom just came back from having a nice holiday (according to them) in Solo City and Yogjakarta in Indonesia. The photos they took were so-so, they didn't even bring the camera on the day to Borobodur Monument! Sad thing was they traveled with AirAsia which I think not a nice thing to start your nice holiday. I mean like, they didn't even have the connecting flight to Alor Star from KL.

Anyway, here are the photos I edited. You would probably think that none of these have to do with Solo, Yogjakarta and even Indonesia.

My favorite from the bunch, cause it has the Airbus A320's winglet.

Sunset over Mount Merapi, onboard the AirAsia's A320.

Very artistic I guess and that's why I like this one.

The Borobodur monument, taken with the sister's Z550i phone. The quality was bad. Period.

A nice photo typical Solonian (am i correct?) house.
