Been To This Famous Street?

I noticed a new eatery in KLIA lately with the name of the famous Jalan Alor. "Jalan" is in the malay language which is "Street" in english language.

I didn't check what they were selling but I assumed that the food served in it would be those found in the actual Jalan Alor. Same quality? Will try when I go overseas next round.

Even the airport management has agreed to have such restaurant with a famous name known to locals and many tourists who frequent this street.

Somehow and somewhere, this famous street name was changed without people knowing. Who changed it? It was the local council, DBKL.

When the news was published, it created an uproar from the business owners, restaurants, stall owners, traders, residents, locals and even tourists requested for the name to be maintained.

People's power won! Never consult and didn't even think properly before doing something, that's the consequences. Name was reverted to the famous Jalan Alor with no choice. This street name was there even before I was born ........... and I was born near Jalan Alor .... at Chinese Maternity Hospital (if you know where lah and yes, I'm a 101% local boy).

Imagine the street name was changed, this restaurant at the airport won't be there too but maybe under a different unknown name.

The City Halls are fond of changing street names at their fancy; they've nothing better to do I guess.

It's a good thing they didn't change the name. Jalan Alor is so famous it'll be silly to change the name. Why fix it if it's not broken right?
