a few weeks back to help her dad exchange some foreign currencies. It was then that we realised the stretch of shops along Syed Alwi Road, directly facing Mustafa, touting cheap CDs and other souvenirs have all been replaced by a whole row of spanking new air-conditioned restaurants serving various Indian cuisines.
