Have been planning for this trip after attending my friend's wedding in Malacca(refer to previous blog, Malacca Wedding), cause there is no time to browse around. Hence after i come back, jio another friend V, who is interested in visiting her "hometown" as she is a half Nyonya.
Set off on 22nd April at 8.30am from Golden Mile complex. We took the Super VIP coach so it is kind of comfy. Reached Malacca Central a.k.a bus terminal around 1.30pm. My friend NH came to pick us up. The weather is hot.......
We checked into Hotel Puri. It is an interesting and nice hotel. Thou it is not a posh 5* hotel, it is the most satisfactory 3* hotel. Kind of homely, clean and well maintained.
After checking in, we went to have our lunch at a very special place, Seafarer. Its at a seaside. There is a very old boat and we had our lunch on the boat. The food is nice and tasty. We had Fried slice black pepper fish, vege, mee goreng and sambal ayam. Too bad din had the pic of the boat.
After lunch we went for coconut drink at the seaside. Its very relaxing and nice. The coconut is too old.......haha, but its a nice place.
Stomarch fulfilled, went to my NH's house for a rest and use the toliet. Its a new and nice condo, the concept is alittle like Singapore condo. Its a waste that we din bring our swimming costume, otherwise I would have jump into the pool.
Enof of rest, NH brought us to Nygoya to buy textile hehe, so auntie..... then we set off to Jesco. Its pretty far...a shopping complex, bought a t-shrt from there.
Finished shopping, NH sent us back to hotel for a rest and quick wash up, while she went home to shower. NH come and pick us up for dinner together with her husband and sister in law. Her husband is very jovial and her sis-in-law is very friendly. Had a nice dinner joking and laughing. We went to a coffee house for dinner, it is delicious, especially the otah.
After dinner, they brought us to Jonker Walk. There is night market on every Fri to Sun. Its very crowded, there are stalls selling all kinds of souvenirs, accessories, food, toys, pets, etc etc. At the side of the walk, the shops and coffee houses are open too. There are some houses which is some dialect clans' club, there are ktv singing, dancing etc, very interesting. At the end of the walk there is a stage for the old folk to sing and at the other end of the walk, there is pple selling plaster. Very happening and interesting place. Its a must go place if you ever visit Malacca. After walking, we sat down and have Chendol, its sedup! It taste so different from Singapore. The gula malacca is very tasty.
Its getting late and we decided to go back to rest. The stupidest thing is that our hotel is just nearby but we are blur enof to let NH husband drive a big round to send us back to hotel, cause its a one way traffic........
