Memories of days gone by
Back in the day, Komtar was one of the only major shopping complex around. There was no prangin mall and there was no first avenue. Hence, it became the favorite shopping complex for many, including yours truly. My family and I would wake up early on Sunday mornings and drive there to enjoy some dim sum breakfast served at its lower ground food court. It was a place I came to know very well in the early days of my childhood. We did everything there, we shopped,we ate, we watched movies in the old cinema.
Sadly it got abandoned as the building changed management and very quickly became a dilapidated building. At present, it is no longer worth a visit as what you will find there are remnants of the past.
