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...
