Globetrotting with My Selangor Story 2013

When I was told about this contest I wasn't really sure if I wanted to participate. Then I thought why not - since I was born in Assunta Hospital & I grew up in Petaling Jaya I shouldn't have much problems writing about Selangor right?

ATV in Kemensah

Tet!!!! Wrong. Very wrong.

Because you see, when I tried to think about what were the things that I loved about Selangor, I couldn't. Because there were many. And I didn't know where to start.

So to make things easy for myself, I started with the fondest memories I had of Selangor. And that was Mimaland.

Sekincan paddy field

My father always took us there when I was a little girl. It was the earliest themepark in Malaysia before all your Sunway Lagoons, and it remained to be the only place in Malaysia that dinasours had been spotted roaming. Sadly the place has been closed down.

Then that memory made me think of Raju's Restaurant. It had THE BEST roti canai in Selangor & KL then and it still is now. I got to know from my geek brother that even Too Phat (I just found out Malique is from that band) mentioned about Raju's in one of their songs. That's when I started liking banana leaf Indian food. It's like Gardenia but roti canai, so good you can even eat it on its own. And the fried chickens and squid - HOMAIGOD. But my favourite is the coconut paste chudney paste & sambal. Mix it with dhal & curry and you will eat like you're at KFC, licking your fingers and all.

Rawang steam fish

Nearby to Raju's (which is in PJ), is AmCorp Mall which hosts the only proper & authentic flea market in Selangor/KL, not like the fakes ones in OneUtama or Mont Kiara hehehe you can find all sorts of cool stuff (or crap) there. Seriously, like old typewriters and vinyls and TVs and stuff.

Just opposite this AmCorp building there the largest A&W you'll find in peninsula Malaysia (kot. I think so lah) This A&W was the only place where we had a drive-in (not drive thru tau? Got difference! This one we park in the compound and the staff will come out & serve us in the car! So cool!) We always went there for dinner after my father picked us up from school. Sekarang dah takde dah. Sedih :(

Little India in Klang

Now I'm thinking - actually kan, there are soooo many nice & lovely things about Selangor tau? Like the Kelip-kelip in Kuala Selangor, or the sumptous (pergghhh I'm using a BIG word! Pat on my back) Satay Kajang in Kajang (takkan in Gombak kot), the Murni & Williams in PJ where you'll find some of the most yummy Asian fusion food (trust me, but you must fast for 2 days before going), the Lala Chongs and so many other places to eat. Then you have the Bukit Cherakah, Bukit Melawati, the OneUtama shopping mall (apparently it's the 4th biggest mall in the world. Seriously?) and so many other lah!
