As written in my previous article, my mother comes from Kedah, a state situated on the northern part of Malaysia. The capital city for Kedah is Alor Setar, a city which has been established since 1735.
As my mother’s hometown is in Baling, I rarely go to Alor Setar. In fact, I could not remember the last time I visited the city. I only have a blur memory on how this city looks like.
Being one of the oldest cities in Malaysia, there are a lot of old buildings in Alor Setar, which I was quite surprised of the first time I saw them, since the usual connotation that I had when I asked anyone about Alor Setar is, this city has nothing.
During my recent visit to the city, a very short one in fact since I was there only to drop my sister off, I managed to capture several interesting sights of the city. Consider this posting as a teaser entry, since I am very sure that I will have another visit to this charming city.
