It has been ages since i planned a family trip. And this year finally it comes true. I decided to go malacca this time. Small city, can easily do a free n easy tour on your own.
First day we reached malacca, my impression towards this city is “oldies” hahahaha.. i feel like in 70’s era. All shop houses, hotel, library and even their toilets looks like the one at my granpa house.
My dad told me he feels like going back to his youth era. Now he is in his 70’s so you know how “old” is this city look like hahaha..
This library even still have a well! Typical old houses.
Beside the hot weather and rustic iconic landmarks, we also enjoying the foods. We ate every 2-3 hours nonstop man hahahaha.. i think i grow sideways now. All the foods are cheap and good.
The satay is different here, the gravy is made from pineapple juice.
The dim sum place, look how old the table is hahahaha… and they serve the dimsum in small plates. And the shop looks damn rustic.
On our last day, i decided to tried some nyonya food from kocik kitchen. Look at the table cloth! Same as the one at my grandma’s.
And last but not least, i went to two iconic places. Well i intend to visit more but, the weather was weird that day (damn hot in the morning, heavy rain at nite). So i decided to went back hotel earlier.
Oh.. and don’t forget to take cruise tour too. It helped me to avoid the heat for a while, as well as you can enjoy scenery and take some nice video (if you able to sit in front).
If you want to go for short gateway, without worry about how to navigate around or get lost or maybe you decided to go for a food hunting or somehow you just want to experience going back to old era. This is the place you should visit hahaha..
And if you have kids, you can take this ride around the city area.
I tempted to stole someone kids to accompany me to ride this tho hahahhaa..
Malacca is such a rest after the crowds of Japan and the noisy hurry of China! Its endless afternoon remains unbroken except by the dreamy, colored, slow-moving Malay life which passes below the hill. There is never any hurry or noise. -isabella bird
