My Saturday in Melaka

We decided to head down to Melaka on Saturday so the three of us with a couple of friends got into a minivan and had a blast. No itinerary, just a fun, laidback evening. First stop, Kampung Morten for nasi lemak wrapped in banana leaf. My girlfriend said it was good but I didn't know it was that good. Mmm mmmm delish. Then we hit another area for seafood. The best! Both in taste and price. We had prawns, stingray and deep fried calamari. I drank coconut juice - from the fruit. No pics peeps, you guys should know me by now, where there's food everything else is secondary! Oh before I forget, just before reaching the seafood place, we found this signboard where I just had to have a picture of. Roy got out while we laughed our behinds off...

Translation: Cows not permitted. Private property.

Duhh. Cows everywhere, this is the importance of going to school. Now look where the head of the herd had brought you to. At least the cows in Melaka are bright enough to tell (read???) where their presence is not appreciated.

Whoever came up with this idea, we wonder which school you went to?

Right after dinner we headed straight for the town to Jonker Street. Major night market every Friday and Saturday night and the street is transformed to Jonker Walk. During the day it's where you get antiques, gemstones and just about everything and it's also where you find the Peranakan Museum. This is where the life is in this historical town. I scored this hand beaded flip-flops for RM18.


And nothing related, this is how I look like with the shorter hairstyle.

You are so right when saying "where there's food everything else is secondary!" hahaha. I love seafood, it's my favourite.

Hi Lynn
Your hair suits you perfectly.When I asked my hairdresser(my husband) for a bob,he said that it would not look good framing my chubby face!!!
I miss drinking coconut juice straight from the coconut.
PS:I finally remembered to ask my brother where he stayed and he said the Hyatt(that was where the blue decorations where)

Sounds like you had the perfect day - the ridiculous billboard was just icing on the cake.

Lynn said...

Hi VB! Well aren't you a lucky girl!! If my husband was a hairdresser I'd make him style my hair each time I have a function to attend. God bless him for not being one :-D.

Ahh, Hyatt, that's a popular hotel for having a tough golf course.

Lynn said...
