Historical Malacca

My eldest girl wanted to visit Melaka as she was having her work break. So I just simply goggled for a reasonable hotel, Terra Nova Hotel. It cost RM316 for two nights with a twin-bedded room.

But I had to share my bed with my youngest girl as she wanted to tag along.

On the first day:
Straight to the Jonker Walk.

First thing first: we had to try the chicken rice ball.
Waited in a queue but just for a short while.

Next, we had durian cendol with gula melaka, my favorite.

Then, the nyonya dumpling which was so delicious so much so that we bought some home.

In the evening:
Would you care to queue up for something good? Normally I hate to queue up but this one tempted me. Surprisingly I waited for an hour and finally got to taste the satay celup. But there was nothing to shout about. Anyway, you got to try at least once.

On the second day:
I had the chance to look around as I was not driving.
This mural attracted me.

It's a must-visit historical town of Malacca.

Visited the Eye on Melaka at night.
But we didn't try it as the place was so lonely.


On the third day:
Visited another famous historical place, the A Formosa.
It was ages since the last time I saw it.
Brought back fond memories when I visited it with my 
college mates back then..

 Then we hit the road 
and reached home safely.

  2. it was more than 5 years ago since i last went to Melaka, and wow, there are really a lot of changes especially by the river.. but one thing never change at all, i.e. the queue at the chicken rice shop, hahaha!!

    p/s: i don't really fancy the chicken rice balls, but that cendol is really "to die for" for me :p
