Ahh, Alor Setar, the capital of my hometown state, Kedah Darul Aman. However, I rarely visit there. Each time I was in Alor Setar is either I am going to Kuala Kedah (to go to Langkawi) or I was there to visit some temple. Besides, although she gets her city status on year 2003, I still find that my hometown – Sungai Petani is way more developed then her. Yes, Sungai Petani don’t have a port, neither sea nor air, but still, I am sure most people will wonder why such underdeveloped place is a city.
Anyway, my recent trip to Alor Setar had lead me to taste some really shitty laksa. It’s the famous Dai Guan Nga Laksa by Lebuhraya Sultan Abdul Halim. According to the person who bring me there, she says that this laksa is the one that once extremely famous until there are rumors saying that they put tissue inside the laksa soup so that it looks like the laksa is full with fish. I am not sure how true is this, but I am sure that most people will surely taste the difference of fish and tissue eh, and wonder why there’s so many people fall on it.
