Day 2 : Malacca Trip with Family

Day 2 : 17th December 2009
Woke up at 7am with neck pain (very common for me when traveling)...We ventured out early for "Dim Sum" around 8am! With Ovi Map on hand, we found the location of the "Dim Sum" some people has been talking about online!


Breakfast : Ban Hong Xiang Tea House



(RM35.90 for 4 person - HOW CHEAP CAN THAT BE?!?! Totally can't compare with KL/PJ ~ cut throat)


Next Stop : Melaka Zoo (Very nature-like and natural - not too smelly)
This trip is going to have a special blog post dedicated to it... It's amazing the creatures you see there... Of course we can see it in every Zoo but just bare with me! It's been 12 years since I've been to a Zoo! (Last was Zoo Negara - smelly)


Lunch : Popiah along Jalan Bunga Raya
This is beyond words! I've never finished eating "Popiah" before. I usually take a bite or two and that's it. I don't fancy it at all. However, this is one delicacy that is a must-have in Melaka! People queue for this! Inside there's egg and the other normal popiah ingredients, very huge! Very filling! Worth value for money and the special ingredient (I think) is the "Pork-Oil"... You can actually smell it (the fragrance) and while eating, you might spot 2 or 3 "Fried Pork-Oil" that makes this "Popiah" a lil' crunchy... Now talk about real snack!



Almost Twilight : Melaka River Cruise
After the Zoo trip, we had to head home and clean-up for our next event! The Melaka River Cruise! Yahoo~! Another special blog post dedicated to this! I only have short descriptions of the historical buildings and short stories. You want to know more, go experience it yourself!


Dinner Time : At Portugis Settlement
Mmm... Food again~! Portugis Grill Fish! A variety of stalls to pick from No. 1 to 10 some even jump No. 88!! Nope, only a handful of stalls, around 8 - 10 stalls. When you park your car at the carpark, a bunch of people with hover around your vehicle until you come out! Scary!! But they will find all sort of "friendly" ways to talk to you and get you to visit their stall. Why? Because they ALL sell the SAME thing... We don't know which is the best, but you must pick a NUMBER to stop them from hovering around you... My bro-in-law counted us, there were 6 of us and my sister was talking to a nice lady and she decided stall No. 6! What a coincident! But we never regretted picking that number.

The food is "Oh-So-Delicious"! Homemade, tasty and VERY satisfying! Btw, fresh fish! Yum~ Btw, another stall nearby sells Mango Juice only, quenches thirst!




Supper Time : Melaka Famous Putu Piring (Always crowded)
Putu piring! Definitely different than what we have in KL/PJ. Not that I know of... However, this stall is the best I've tasted by far! The texture is moist and the aroma is mouthwatering. Imagine having a soft and lightly sweetened sponge cake in your mouth. No! Not the ordinary sponge cake... Something like, a tight texture... It's not flaky and it's just the right amount of ingredient! Very filling too... A must-try in Melaka!
