Breakfast in Shah Alam

Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia.

Show Your City


I live in a small city named Shah Alam.
The Capital City of Selangor.
A city made in a garden;
I couldn’t imagine being somewhere else.

The sunset painting the sky with
shades of red and orange;
at dusk, the highway will be packed with cars.

On weekends,
people would have breakfast at a Mamak stall.
It would be filled with groups of cyclists,
Some of the families still wearing their
pyjamas while having breakfast.
Some of us just finished a run,
some of us still circling the area looking for parking spots;
While the waiters are busy catching up with our orders.

Sometimes we even meet the Prince of Selangor during breakfast.
He thought no one recognized him,
without realizing, we don’t want to disturb him,
Each one of us minds our own business.
Enjoying our roti canai with teh tarik.
