We checked into the Concorde Hotel Shah Alam and enjoyed a scrumptious dinner, after which our Green Council had a meeting as a review of what we have done and achieved over the span of the academic year of 2012. After that, the tired councillors returned back to their rooms and chilled out!
How tired. Ho-hum.

We ate at Jalan Alor where there are lots of outdoor street foodstalls. We had eaten there before and the food was really good. You get the boom boom of a local vendor's music blasting from speakers where he is trying to sell CD's aswell as the old lady picking up left over food off the tables, the man trying to sell wooden baskets and another man trying to sell toys. Eventually you are left to eat your food.

It is also dubbed as one of the five major sites of Asia (along with the Taj Mahal, the Merlion in Singapore, the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City).

The hotel rooms were spacious, and the hallways were rather elegant (though dimly-lit for levels 12 and above). The scenery outside the hotel is picturesque on both sides; either you get the mosque or the gardens. The facilities were relatively good and the service was alright.
However, we found a caterpillar in the rice during one of their buffet breakfasts, after which the chefs and waitresses did not dare to come out to apologise after we had complained to them. This really irked me and I stopped eating immediately! There was also no free Wifi which they had promised in their hotel descriptions, requiring a payment of MYR35 per 24 hours! These were very disappointing, in my opinion, for a relatively high-end hotel.
