I have went to KOMTAR before the Pacific shopping centre opened and I went there few days after it’s officially opened to check out what’s there. I love checking out new stuff, the things in town, if I am not mistaken, Penang Times Square will be opened on Christmas Day, so beware of the traffic, it will be very jam on Jalan Dato Kramat. Everyone wants to be the first to visit a mall, so do I.
Let’s talk back to KOMTAR. They did renovate a part of KOMTAR, they changed the lighting and the flooring, but sadly, the new flooring is on the first floor only. Another part I don’t really like is there’s a lot of old shops outside of Pacifc supermarket, shop owners should have at least do something to make it match with the new Pacific supermarket, as the Chinese word 配合, (mandarin:pei4 he2) means.
They only did the flooring, the lighting for a brighter indoor environment and new stocks and new name for the supermarket. Nothing much has changed, they still used the same old elevators, the sky roof is still there and the wall is still the same.
The new Pacific supermarket did really bring some changes to KOMTAR but it’s not very pretty as Parkson nor Jusco I’ll say.
We went outside to take some shots for blogging. There’s me, KOK and MX, 3 bloggers and 3 DSLR users.
There’s new entrance with a big KOMTAR word on the outside, and beside the entrance is GEORGGETOWN White Coffee. Unfortunately, I have a bad first time experience at that coffee shop. Anyway, that’s not important, the most important is the improvement of KOMTAR.
