Melaka Stories Part I

We went to Malacca for a short holiday. We wanted to be back in nostalgia of being in one of the most historical places in Malaysia. We arrived at 3pm and checked in one of the 5-star hotels. Then, we had our lunch at the Queyside Cafe and Seafood Restaurant nearby Bandar Hilir…the service was not very good coz probably dah petang…they were getting ready for the night rush….whatever it was, we managed to get our food…semua habis coz we were extremely hungry.

First we went to the Stadhuys Building (remember the red building?)….Jalan-jalan over there admiring the local souvenirs and beca (trishaws).

Just a few minutes walk from the Stadhuys, you will reach the most famous night market in Melaka, the Jonker Street. We reached there quite early (around 5pm) so many hawkers and stalls were still in the midst of setting up. Nevertheless, we managed to get into a few antique shops. This shop below is interesting.

Lagenda Antik Lagenda Antik – was featured in a local film

The antique shop was featured in the film Setem…although I did not watch it, my brother-in-law took an effort to ask the owner and the latter confirmed it. The antiques were amazing, though some Chinas can be spotted in my mom’s cupboard…hmm….they could be worth hundreds….

Lagenda Antik Notice the white lamp hanging on the ceiling?…My mom-in-law has one too….

Rubber Apakah?…

Then nak dekat Magrib so went to hotel to freshen up, next was Melaka River Cruise……(something like River Thames Cruise).

When we bought the tickets, there were not many people but when we reached the dock, OMG…ramai giller orang ok….rupanya ada Sambutan Maulidur Rasul and they were queuing up to get into the boats lining up in the water there.

Kaunter Tiket Taman Rempah is the nearest stop to our hotel

Nevertheless, finally we got into the boat and sat right in front.See our view in pics below:

Jelly Bunny in KLCC

A hybrid of Jelly Beans and Hunny Bunny…..Hehehe..I’m just joking…Attention shoe lovers! Jelly Bunny is a new shoe shop in town yawl! Situated just beside Tong Pak Fu on the Concourse floor (opposite Uniqlo, walk from Isetan towards Candylicious) I reckon this would be the new craze….(will it make the pitch again?? A blast in the past, from the 80s??)…we’ll see….Jelly Bunny KLCCAt first I thought the shoes are made of real ‘jelly’. They smell exactly like jelly beans ok. Sniffing them just confirmed to my hypothesis….hihi….Silly me, I was too excited about the jelly thing and told my friends that the shoes are made of jelly…..my friends sniffed my shoes too…(sorry gals). In actual fact, the shoes are made of jelly rubber and it’s from Thailand. It is purportedly to be soft and flexible and will not cause blisters.Let’s see what they have in store:Jelly Bunny Olga BowJelly Bunny BrunaJelly Bunny LiviaTop and middle: Teresa, Bottom: DanielaJelly Bunny IsabelaLarissa and BrunaJelly Bunny…

Actually, when I was already 40 weeks, we booked an executive room, read about My Third Pregnancy……kira dah prepare semualah…On my due date, Dr. Norleen said come back on Monday to be induced.

So, apa lagi, husband treated me with food lah…heheheh…pegi jalan-jalan carik makan…So on the 5th of May, I was induced sebab kira dah overdue by 3 days…..Dr. pesan have a good breakfast and come…and so I did…I was induced at 9.30 am and gave birth at noon…agak cepat…maybe sebab kandungan dah ‘ripe’ sangat kan…sakit beranak, jangan cakap la….memang sakit gile…kira satu achievement la (for me la)…..and so, hadirlah seorang baby girl dalam hidup k…

For drinks, we ordered ice lemon tea, soya bean and I ordered iced latte...(wondered why I ordered this coz i don't drink coffee)...anyway, nasib baik sedap iced latte tu.
