The Rice Journey - How it is grown nowadays…Alor Setar, Kedah

Alor Setar, is a city in the north of Malaysia, which is the capital city of Kedah. It is one of the main attraction of travel in Malaysia, especially en-route to the neighboring Thailand. It is the center of administration which is second largest city in Kedah after the commercial-centric Sungai Petani further south. Alor Setar is the birthplace of two prominent and well known Prime Ministers of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister, and Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s fourth and longest serving Prime Minister.
At first sight, Alor Setar looks basically mundane as a city due to its villages, irrigation canals and large drains crossing almost everywhere. To the unknown, they are surprisingly with a purpose, which is the rice plantation, needed by the rice farmers to be able to grow the rice twice year. I always thought of how nice it would be if all the drainages are covered but then it will lose the ecstatic values when you know what it was meant to be. Not the common waste water and drainage. The dry hot weather season gives you an unbreathable humid feeling and sweat, compensated with sometimes windy days.
When you are on the rice fields you can really feel the nature, the roles of each available season and their parts and contribution in growing rice.
