Time out to History City

I’ve been wanting to get some time out lately due to stress at work. A short getaway is all that is needed. Few days ago, we decided to just hop onto our ride and take a tour back to the city of history, Malacca. It has been years since I last stepped my feet there. This would be the first time for Jonathan. Our mission – to munch on some of our favourite food there. Yum Yum. 🙂

At the same time, we got to know that Merryn is heading to Philea Resort and Spa for the Earth Hour event. Julie dropped her a message on FB that we’ll be going to Malacca too. Excitedly she added us into the invitation to participate in the event. Hehe.. So we get to join her in the resort for this event.

We departed on Saturday around half past noon and reached at 2 plus. Good journey with not much traffic. The first thing that awed me was how much the place has changed.

The Jonker Walks

We didn’t waste much time and head straight to the first food in our list, the Chicken rice balls of Hoe Kee Chicken Rice. When we reached there, the queue was “Bearable”.

While queuing, I reached out to my phone wanted to check in to FB and then I exclaimed…  “I LEFT MY PHONE ON THE CAR DASHBOARD”… Rushed back to the car to retrieved it. Good thing it’s still there with the car windows still attached. Phew.. We then waited for about 15 mins and the Si Tau Po asked, do you mind “Tapp Toi” with another couple. Urmm… Both Julie and I look at each other and I say, ok lar.. Would you?

Our meal consists of rice balls, chicken and assam fish. Gobbled down in just minutes. Haha.. We were hungry hungry then mar. 😛

Then we went to quick jalan-jalan (tour) around the place.

We then headed to get our favourite cendol. Not wanting to miss out the famous Jonker 88, darling and I decided to give it a try.

To our disappointment, our tastebuds disagreed to give it a pass. Then we decided to head to the stall which we normally eat and lo behold, they’ve closed shop for the day. *sigh*.. mission unaccomplished. Nevertheless, the adventure during that short tour was rewarding and managed to takes my mind off work.

Well, we then headed to Philea Resort and Spa, which is located in Ayer Keroh.

    Nice matching t-shirts! I don’t mind sharing table, because at those popular eating places we don’t really have a choice!
