Uptown Shah Alam

Today, I just had a visit to Uptown Shah Alam. For any of you who don't know, its also known as Kompleks Muhibbah Shah Alam. The place located at Seksyen 24 Shah Alam. For any of you who don't know where is the exact place, the best way is going there using KESAS (Shah Alam Highway) and enter LKSA ( Lebuhraya Kemuning-Shah Alam), just look for Kompleks Muhibbah Shah Alam after you pay your toll. The place open from 8pm until 3am everyday but most of the shop in that place only open at 9.30pm. I suggest you come early at around 8pm if you go on weekend because it will be hard to find parking after 9pm.

The only shop that make me interested to make a visit to that place is Uptown Banknote & Coin Collection own by Che'Lee. I had been his friends in Facebook for many months and had seen him posting his collection online since then. On my visit today, Che'Lee just open his shop and not many people around. After 10 minutes, people start coming to his shop nonstop. But most of them just a curious onlookers who never seen old Malaysia coins and banknotes. During my visit that day, Che'Lee collection mostly Malaysia coins and banknotes including Straits Settlements, Malaya British Borneo. He also display some foreign banknotes, Coke-Cola Bottles & accessories, Rayban & accessories and also some Malaysia banknotes in a frame complete with a small description of the notes. All the notes in that frame are in Uncirculated condition.

Nasi lemak, Soto, Bakso, Steambot, Otak-otak, Satar and many more Malaysian food waiting for you in here. I heard that the Uptown Steambot is famous among food lover but sadly I am already full to try them today, maybe next time.
