Day trip to Malacca

Malacca (or Melaka in Malay) is a nice place for a day trip. And, of course, as a Malaysia, we travel for food!
First stop, chicken rice balls. There’s always a long line here.

But it was worth it. The place was cool, food was good – even though there weren’t enough “balls”.

After that, some chendol with gula melaka… mmm… what else is better on a hot hot day?

At that time is the ‘chung’ festival too – so the nyonya kind is available.

Then you probably see trishaws quite extravagantly decorated (and some with very loud music too) everywhere!

Then you have the creative ones who actually sell advertising space (think of the apprentice!). Smart move.

Melaka is always so hot, anytime of the year! I love climbing all over the hills and old forts but don't like having to queue up for food. I am vegetarian now so it's a bit more susah to find appropriate food. Love the cendol and ABC there.
