Usually, Malaysians will measure how developed some places are by counting how many banks are there in these places. They also count number of malls, fast food restaurants etc.

So start counting your city's whatever!

*For those KLites and Penangites, we know that your cities are the best in Malaysia, but you're still welcome to count the countless number of everything in your respective cities.

Em, I start the ball rolling first..

Sandakan

Banks
Maybank = 2
Alliance = 2
CIMB = 2
Ambank = 2
Hong Leong = 2
Public Bank = 1
RHB = 1
HSBC = 1
Standard Chartered = 1
Bank Rakyat = 1
UOB = 1
Affin = 1

Fast food
KFC = 5 (2 in town centre, 3 in suburbs)
Pizza Hut = 2 (one of them located inside Giant)

Malls, currently there are no malls in Sandakan, but there is one U/C (SHS, should have 200 shops) and one proposed (One Avenue)

There are two hypermarkets in Sandakan, which are Giant and Servay...

Cinema = 1 (In the past, there are numerous cinemas in Sandakan, then all of them were closed in the last decade, now we have one which is recently opened, I hope it is a sign that my hometown is undergoing revitalisation)

Although Sandakan has population well over 400000, it is also only now there are several mall proposals (one u/c), and considering here we have 5 KFCs, i hope McD consider opening it here or somebody take that franchaise, hehe....

Nice one for Sandakan. I always wanted to go to Sandakan.

Now, in Alor Star we have:

Banks
CIMB-3
Maybank-3
Hong Leong-2
RHB-2
EON Bank-3
Bank Muamalat-2
Public Bank-2
Only one branch for HSBC, Alliance Bank, Affin, UOB, Standard-Chartered, OCBC, Ambank, Bank Islam and Bank Rakyat.

Almost all banks have their branch in Alor Star, except Citibank and Al-Rajhi.

Fast-food
McD's-2
KFC-Countless
Pizza Hut-2
Marrybrown-2

Malls
Tesco Mergong
Alor Star Mall
Star Parade
City Plaza
Souq al-Bukhary

So there are five malls but with only one 2-screen cineplex :(
