Weekend escapade

Hey ya…the M.I.A Perutbesi is back πŸ™‚

Sorry for the lack of updates. Have lots of photos to share and lets start with my short-but-fun-and-tiring-overall-satisfying trip to the historical city of Malacca (a.k.a Melaka) πŸ™‚

2) Second stop: Check in at Century Mahkota Hotel

*One bedroom apartment RM227++ for one night. Super small with 1 mini bedroom, 1 mini living room, 1 mini kitchen with mini fridge and 1 huge balcony (“.) . The apartment was just so-so but the hotel provides very good facilities, 2 huge pools, golf, badminton court, etc (thumbs up for their facilities especially their dolphin pool..lurv it!)

This is the best part of the entire Malacca trip πŸ™‚ Got ourselves a first-hand tryout on the famous satay celup (celup=dip) Satay celup is one of the famous delicacies in Malacca. It is a type of mini steamboat where raw ingredients are placed on skewers and dipped into a boiling spicy peanut sauce to be cooked. Each skewer cost about 50-60 cent per stick. Don’t miss this dish when you come to Malacca next time πŸ™‚ But be prepared to get urself soaked in sweat coz believe me..it’s hot! And beware that you might lost your voice after eating this coz all of us did πŸ™‚ Do remember to drink lots of water afterward!

4) Fourth stop: Jonker StreetWe couldn’t find any parking space nearby Jonker Street. Thus, we took a 10 minutes walk from Ban Lee Siang to Jonker Street to visit the weekend night market there. (We need a good walk to help us digest our dinner before we start eating again at Jonker :P)
