Needless to say, this trip was awesome even though we planned it spontaneously, Haha.
What we had was not a luxurious trip or lawatan sambil belajar (visiting museum?! wth)..but FOOD HUNTING!!
No doubt, we are craving for nice food all the time.. XD
Early in the morning, we took transnasional bus at 9am from Tasik Selatan Bus Terminal to Melaka Central. It was a 1 hour 45 min journey and cost us RM12.50.
Melaka central was kinda far away from Jonker Street by walking. Luckily town bus was available, or else we will die of walking.
That was how our journey began!!
|Quite an old bus|
1st station: Jonker 88
It was a small restaurant located at Jonker street, selling laksa and cendol. I tried Yuan Yang laksa and baba cendol.
For your information, Baba laksa was more to spicy whereas Nyonya laksa was more to sour. When Baba met nyonya, became Yuan Yang laksa (I'm telling the truth k). I don't know if it was because of we were too hungry that time, the foods were so tasty!!

Inside the shop
Stepping on this historical land, for sure we had to go to this kind of historical place.
Yet, we did nothing at this place, except photos taking, Haha.
Tan Beng Swee Clocktower

Eat , eat and eat!
It was a dessert shop located at Jonker street. It raised fame of selling durian cendol, Amoy Yuan Yang waffle, icy white coffee and etc. I highly recommend icy white coffee here, smell nice and taste great too! ^ ^
|Amoy yuan yang waffle|
|Highly recommended: Icy white coffee|
|Must try durian cendol if you're a durian lover|
No matter you're going with your partner, family or besties, Malacca river cruise is one of the best destination.
Previously heard of quite a lot of bad comments about this place, but I found that those were not true.
We just need to pay RM10 each person and got the opportunity to see the another side of Malacca for 45minutes.
|Feel like I was on Venice river|
|Amazed by their wall painting skill|
|Have you ever seen monorail in Malacca?|
|Say "Hi" to the people on opposite boat|
5th station: Museum Samudera
It was not in our plan initially. Since we saw this place, we just went into it and had a look around.
Actually nothing much inside and it was a bit troublesome because we had to remove our shoes before entering it. Although plastic bag was provided at the ticket counter, don't you think it's very not environment friendly?
Here are some of the photos we took.
|Can you guess what are they doing?|
6th station: Capitol Satay
This was one of our "must-go" destination. For what? SATAY CELUP of course!!
After waiting for 2 hours, we survived the crowds finally, woohoo~
One stick costs RM0.80 only and I ate around 20 sticks! >.<
Now I understand why I gained so much weight after coming back from Malacca...=.=
|Here we are|
|A long queue|
|Food lovers : D|
7th station: Jonker Walk
This was my second time of visiting to this place. I like it a lot. Perhaps this is the only place which able to represent the true identities of Malacca.
|I spent RM4 because of the creative bottle.. =.=|
8th station: Chop Chung Wah
Without eating chicken rice balls means you never go to Malacca before!
There were so many shops in Malacca are selling chicken rice balls. This is the best I heard from many food bloggers. Proven by the long queue in front of this shop. Haha.
|Chicken rice balls|
9th station: Tan Kim Hock and Gu Pong Enterprise
These are the places where you can buy some local snacks.
Dodol, pineapple cookies, coconut cookies and etc are their hot selling stuffs.
|(This is not an advertisement)|
|I like their deco|
10th station: Nadeje Cafe
Last but not least, Mille Crepe!!!
So many people told me before how tasty it is. Finally, I grabbed this golden opportunity to have a mouthful of it. We ordered the original and tiramisu mille crepe. Both were quite nice for me, truely 入口即溶 (melted once got into mouth ->poor translation wth)~ yummy! But I do prefer tiramisu mille crepe, hehe. It costs us RM9++ per slice.
|This is the place|
|Makes people drooling|
How about our accommodation?
Well, due to our very spontaneous plan, so many hotels had been fully booked. We only manage to book a guesthouse called "Eastern Heritage Guesthouse" few days before going. It took us 2 hours to find the location.
When we reach........DAMN!
That place was really a typical kind of guesthouse: no water heater, old and not so clean.. :-S
Luckily we managed to find another one near to Jonker street, which is known as "Riverside paradise".
It was a newly opened home stay (instead of guesthouse), thus everything was still very new and clean.
The owners were friendly and nice enough for me. They even filtered and screened suitable roommates for
their guests who were staying in attic room (dorm like room).
I felt their 100% sincerity and knew they are running this business not to make money only.
|Small lounge at back side|
|Love the riverside view to the max|
|You can even hear chime from church|
See you again, Malacca!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here I end my extremely long post. (phewww)
