The desire of going to travel is never ending. I suppose it is a symbol of getting exhausted or bored with current working life? When you couldn't do anything to make any changes, a short escape is considered as quite a relief. What a life.
Malacca remains as my top favorite travel destination, even though I had made couples of visit to this beautiful town before. Just two-hour drive from KL, you'll be able to recharge yourself well over a weekend with splendid view of various places and of course - with tonnes of delicious food.
This time I made a short 2D1N trip to Malacca with my sisters and I should name is as a FOOD trip.
The accommodation for this time was My Friend Guest House.

Don't be surprise, the guest house is right inside the Hakka Community Association. We booked this guest house through Booking.com at RM141 for 4 persons a night. Even though it was not the cheapest, considering just a few minutes walk to Jonker street and with cleanliness well maintained, I would say it was a good deal. Another important reason of choosing here was the spacious parking area which you couldn't find in other budget hostels.
Chicken rice balls @ Chung Hwa Kopitiam
It is a must-go in Malacca. Thumbs up for the juicy chicken and fragrant rice balls. Four of us finished a whole chicken and 10 rice balls for each person. The only downside is the long queue outside the shop. Guess what, we reached there after 3pm and still had to wait at least half an hour until we get seated. Thus, you can imagine how long you need to wait during lunch hour.

How can a Malacca trip completed without a cup of coffee or milk tea from there? I had the iced coffee on the first day and iced milk tea on the second day. Other hot selling items include durian cendol and essence lime with liquorice juice. It is a good place to buy some cookies, candies or chocolates as souvenir too.
Mamee Museum @ Jonker Street
Free entrance. Just dropped by and had a quick look, a reminiscence of childhood memory.
Wanted to try the coconut milk shake but unfortunately it was closed upon our arrival. So be there before 6.30pm during weekend to avoid disappointment! But still, we were lucky enough to catch the sunset by the beach.
Dinner @ Jonker Street

It is freaking heavy to carry around honestly!
None of us felt hungry at all due to the late lunch. Therefore, we simply picked a stall to have some light meal after strolling the Jonker strret.

Breakfast @ Calanthe Art Cafe
Rated by Tripadvisor as one of the best restaurant at Jonker street. It is a cozy place to spend a morning with friends or family to have some coffees or french toast. The only downside is limited options you can choose from the breakfast menu.

Lunch @ Nancy's Kitchen

We left Malacca right after lunch and there ends our short 2D1N trip. Would definitely come back again and again!
