The popular 'food street' in Bukit Bintang was once a bustling red light area. While there are still plentiful pockets of resistance, Jalan Alor's primarily attraction is now a different type of flesh. Chicken wings, especially. In this chaotic corner of the city, cars are always double-parked on both sides of the narrow street while jaywalkers compete with mobile hawkers for space. The area can be both a fascinating and scary experience for first-timers. Aggressive restaurant touts and pesky jaga kereta (drug-dependent car valets) are all over the place.

It also underscores one important aspect of our society. Either Malaysians are uninterested in 'menial' tasks or the stall owners are paying really lousy wages. Just like Petaling Street (in KL's Chinatown), every 'sales person' lining the street, chasing customers are foreigners. I won't be surprised if someone tells me that those versatile foreigners are also cooking those famous local delicacies. The now touristy Jalan Alor came dangerously close to losing its insignificant name recently. In the battle between arrogant city hall officials and stubborn residents, the latter won. This video was recorded with the LX3 during that precious window between sunset and dark.

Playback Help: Mycen Videos are mostly presented in high quality widescreen 16:9 standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD), both in hi-fi stereo. By default, the embedded player here loads a standard quality 360p or 480p resolution to accommodate users with slower connections. To switch to higher quality and clearer playback, select the 720p or 1080p option (if available) on the bottom right of the player after pressing play. The transition to HQ or HD may take a few seconds. If things get stuck, just reload the page and try again.

Playing HD or HQ requires a reasonably fast internet connection and reasonably competent hardware for smooth playback. Firstly, let the player's pink loading line fill completely. If the video is still jerky when you replay after that, try closing other programs on your computer to free up resources. Even then, heavy Internet traffic during peak hours might still slow down some connections. If all else fails, simply revert to normal quality playback by clicking on the same button again.

In order to watch HD smoothly, you ought to have a newer version of Adobe Flash plug-in installed on your browser. Go here to download the latest version if your browser is not doing it automatically. Enjoy!
