View Shah Alam city at the top of Hotel Quality

Shah Alam is a city in the Petaling District (together with a small portion of neighbouring Klang District) within Selangor State, Malaysia. It is located about 25 kilometres (15 mi) west of the country's capital, Kuala Lumpur. In 1978, it replaced Kuala Lumpur as the capital city of the state of Selangor due to Kuala Lumpur's incorporation into a Federal Territory in 1974. Shah Alam was the first planned city in Malaysia after independence in 1957.

Shah Alam was once known as Sungai Renggam and was noted for its rubber and oil palm estates. Later, the same area was identified as Batu Tiga prior to Malaysian independence, and has been a centre of rubber and palm oil trade for centuries. Its current name was chosen by the then state Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, after his late father Sultan Alam Shah. Many other monuments, buildings and even a street are named after the late Sultan. Shah Alam was granted city status on 10 October 2000 with Dato' Haji Abu Sujak Haji Mahmud as the first mayor.

Malaysia grew rapidly after its independence in 1957 under the ‘Father of Modernisation’, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak Hussein. Shah Alam was opened in 1963 with the purpose of making it the administrative centre of Selangor once Kuala Lumpur was made a Federal District on February 1st, 1974. With the consent of 8th DYMM Sultan of Selangor, Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Al-Haj on December 7th, 1978, Shah Alam was proclaimed the capital of Selangor with an area of 41.68 square km. Shah Alam had encountered several processes of extending its areas and the last was on January 1st 1997. Through the Gazette Plan 1190, Shah Alam was extended to 293 square km.

The first flagship store in London's Covent Garden is owned by a group of young Malaysian entrepreneurs. London's first Tutti Frutti outlet was officially opened on Friday by Lord Powell who had served former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The idea to open the frozen yoghurt store there was conceived by 19-year-old Amanda Nasim, who's in her final year studying Finance and Economics at York University.

Aku rindu ...

Sebenarnya gua tidak rindu pada sesiapa pun hatta pada manusia sebaliknya gua rindu pada zaman awal-awal gua bergiat dalam dunia blogging. Aku akan cuba luangkan 30 minit setiap hari untuk tulis apa sahaja aku rasa dan apa yang gua nampak. Selalunya gua akan update selepas waktu bekerja kerana itu sahaja masa yang gua ada. Ketika itu gua tenang kerana gua dapat luahkan perasaan gua melalui penulisan dan sesekali gua ada masukkan hal-hal politik.
