Mini trip 1 : Melaka

Backdated post

We went to Melaka on 3rd June 07 for a short getaway cum wedding dinner. The main purpose to go down to Melaka is to feast. Yup, it's more like a makan makan session. We aim to cover the famous chicken rice ball and while we were there, we saw lots of people having cendol as well. So, we went to hunt for it. And we found the famous Nyonya Cendol.

Armed with the cool nyonya cendol in hand, we continue our walk at the Jonkers Street and found some more food (Teng Teng candy & home made dodol) and suddenly, this caught my eye.

It's actually a Hokkien Huay Kuan aka Hokkien Society Club House. Very nice antique looking place, I must say. After that, I found one shop selling nice baju and I got myself a pair of short pants (Gerald pay for it *LOL* ). Ok, we are done for the Jonkers Street and head to look for our hotel, Equatorial (we dunno where it is though). Took us awhile to look for it and found out tat it is just nearby the A Famosa.

After checking in, there's still some time left before the wedding dinner and we made our way to A'Famosa and also the new mall. Nothing much to wow about hence, we made our way back to the hotel to refresh ourselves for the dinner.

We head back to KL the next morning and I managed to reach office at 9am. Not bad for a short trip ;) but it's a bit tiring coz we will be flying to Penang on Tuesday.
