First, let me clarify that the owner is not related to me. In fact, I have no idea how to name this post since this shop doesn’t have a business signboard. However, the place would still be thronged with people especially at night, enjoying the sumptuous BKT concocted by the ingenious owner simply known as “Ah Gan”. What’s unique is that the restaurant only opens at night, from 8pm to 8am.
Yes, you’ve read that correctly. Formerly known as “Green Palace” or something, it was renamed “Doraemon Food Court” when another person bought over the place. Despite the funny name, this food court offers perhaps the best (and CHEAPEST) food in town. Since this food court opens only late in the evening, parking is free. Now let’s dump history and get straight to the FOOD!
I guess I owe many readers this particular interesting subject, especially the Chinese readers of this blog whom have been asking about the many famous “Bak Kut Teh” shops in Banting. Well, here it is. Continue reading
As of 2 January 2009, barely 2 months after its first activity, Banting.Wordpress.com exceeds 3000 pageviews. Though facebook is still one of the main referrers, more than 50% of traffic to this blog comes from search engine results, mostly from Google and Yahoo. Keywords such as “banting town”, “kheng kopitiam”, “khengs kopitiam”, “banting selangor”, “majlis perbandaran banting” (actually it should be Majlis Daerah Kuala Langat), “nice food in banting”, “uncle yam kopitiam”, “sayang manis” and all other weird keywords top the charts for linking into this blog. Through these keywords, Banting.Wordpress.com actually appears in the top 3 of the search results, which is FANTASTIC! Keep it up, and we might even draw in some potential investors into the area.
Banting already has a few higher learning institutes, like Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP), Kolej Mara Banting, Kolej Komuniti Banting, and the upcoming matriculation college which has a super-large real estate! I will do a fair coverage of all these places soon, and hope the young leaders of tomorrow will see an opportunity of a good, affordable education in Banting, even when they may not do so well in school.
Happy New Year 2010, and may the year turn out to be the best!
For no apparent reason, some of my friends have been bugging me to write a post about McDonald’s in Banting, just to show that Banting is a fast-developing town. Below is a map that will guide you to Banting Business Centre, which is too new that it’s not shown on the aging Google Maps. Just follow the directions there, and the destination would be on your left. Continue reading
Just recently, I decided to do a more complete coverage of the new commercial area in town, Banting Business Centre. It says “Pusat Perdagangan Banting” at the front, which is what you’ll see when you reach here, but at the back – hidden since it’s a car-park space – it says “Banting Business Centre”. Another “brilliant” job done by the civil engineers at Majlis Daerah Kuala Langat, who screwed up on a simple job enlarging a drain near my house, and end up having to redo everything again because “the elevation of the new drain does not allow water to flow in the proper direction”. That was 3 weeks ago, and it’s still not completed today. Continue reading
Banting.Wordpress.com achieves another milestone as the number of views exceeding 2000 as of 17 December 2009. There are 5 active subscribers and definitely more to come. In comparison, this blog reached 1000 views in 29 days, but has reached 2000 views in less than 16 days from its first milestone.
Banting.Wordpress.com will continue to add quality content related to not only Banting, but also the areas around it, which includes Jugra, Sungai Manggis, Jenjarom, Telok Panglima Garang, Sijangkang and Morib.
Because the author would like to keep this blog sensitive to all Malaysians, the homepage will only display Halal food and places, while non-Halal materials will be posted in the Non-Halal page which you can click at the top of the homepage.
Since there is a growing number of budget hotels in Banting, they will also be featured in new pages above.
