We spent about an hour for lunch in Bukit Bintang and we started our journey. Before reaching to Shah Alam, she drove me to Subang Pyramid Shopping Mall for a while. I was attracted by the outstanding design and the attractions surrounding.

Shah Alam Mosque
This mosque is a landmark here in Shah Alam. For those muslim who happens to be here in Shah Alam and looking for a place to pray / solat, you can always perform your prayers here.
Being build in such a beautiful design. It is fully air conditioned and tap water for cleansing is using sensor electronically.
For non-muslim, you may also visit the mosque but in proper clothing.
You can't take picture once you inside the mosque.
Shah Alam is an easy day trip from KL and it is probably most famous for the Blue Mosque with its blue aluminium dome gleaming brightly under the hot tropical sun.
I came here for a little excitement in the jungles of Taman Pertanian with Skytrex Adventure who run a high rope course through the treetops.
I've lived in Shah Alam since my school years that is since 1985 (Gosh! I feel old!) up till now.
Shah Alam has the "well-off" feel of the suburb of Kuala Lumpur (the national capital) as it has the distinction of being a well-planned township which harmonizes nature with modernity. Here, residential areas and commercial centres are set amidst lush landscapes and a sprawling lake.
Decades ago, Shah Alam was known as "Sungai Renggam" and is only known as a rubber and oil palm estate. Later, the same area was identified as "Batu Tiga" prior to Malaysian independence and has been a centre of rubber and palm oil trade for years.
Its current name was chosen by the then late Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, after his late father, Sultan Alam Shah.
If you ask most Malaysians what is the most prominent landmark in Shah Alam, their answer would immediately be "The Shah Alam's Blue Mosque".
Also known as the "Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque", it features the tallest minarets as well as the largest dome in the entire Islamic world. Its worship hall is bigger than London's St. Paul Cathedral and can accomodate 16,000 worshippers.
You can see decorative Islamic calligraphy which dominates the edges surrounding the dome and main prayer hall while the interior architecture exhibits ethnic Malay design elements.
Shah Alam has a variety of dishes to tempt all taste buds.
Try these local favourites:
1) Satay - Malaysia's famous signature dish consists of skewers of thick succulent marinated meat (chicken, beef), barbecued over charcoal embers. This dish is enjoyed with fresh slices of cucumbers, onions, rice cubes and spicy peanut dip.
2) Roti canai - this popular delicacy is a light crispy pancake made from wheat flour. Watch the experts toss and stretch the dough then cook it to perfection. It is served with curry or dhal.
3) Nasi lemak - this is rice cooked with coconut milk and served with condiments like fried anchovies, slices of cucumbers, "sambal" (fried chili paste) and many other side dishes (if you wish) like fried chicken or beef "rendang". If you can't stand hot and spicy dishes, make sure to take it easy on the "sambal".
4) Teh tarik - literally means "pulled tea", the drink gets its name from the act of "pulling" the hot piping tea from one mug to another.
