This post is actually a recap of my trip to Malacca....
i went to Malacca main reason is to watch the 8tv Summer Live Concert
1st the planning of going there is with all of the =38La|39= gang but.... Angus and Charine went back hometown already .... then Ching said she is broke ... Pheona has people to entertain .... Boon Came up with some kind of sickness ... Cindy has to attend Christopher's class ....Samson cant join in...
so end up its me, EJ, Sam and Lawrence
we drove there .... and the hotel was actualy booked by my friend Shirleen...

After we reach Malacca i called Shirleen up ..... to ask about how to go to the hotel ....
but she told me to wait for her because our checked in time is 2pm so she asked us to go lepak around 1st ....
we drove around lar .... sightseeing in jonkers street and around the red house ....


i like the building

a nise building looks colonial

classic nonya baba house

menara taming sari

Double Decker bus of Malacca like KL's Hop on and Hop Off bus

people enjoying the rain

raining but still got tonnes of tourist

then almost 2pm already we cant wait ..... but paiseh wanna call Shirleen already so i ring up on Raymond ....
i surely gave Raymond a surprise .... hahahaha
he is so nise to tell us the place and how to get there by phone ....
but we got lost anyways hahahaha.....
so waited for Shirleen and Shone to come for our rescue ....
after checked in ! Shirleen brought us to Newton Village Hawker Centre ...
go makan there .... and meet up with Chili and Lee Siang !
and there Chili introduce me to her room-mate Hui Wen
ate some rice with "Tau Yiu Bak" or in english its pork in dark soy sauce
then we saw this funny moth.... its kinda pretty so i snap it hahahaha


the moth

After meal, Shirleen brought us to The Jeti ...(but EJ , Sam and Lawrence went back to the hotel to take a nap)
Shirleen said this is the seaside Karaoke centre....
believe me the jeti is so long... walk also walk until you "Pai Khar" tempang
its kinda nise .... the place is like Jaya Ones Wai Sek Kai and Penang's upper Penang Road
its a place with restaurants, bistros, pubs and many more lar ....
the place even got a mini car to shuttle us aoud the place ..... so wont tempang lar ....


view from outside

see how long ??

thats the driver on the left

the mini car hahaha

after that we head to the concert in MITC ....
It was raining but its ok !
meet up Mellerie and the guy that i forgot the name ....
well for more stories about my experience in the concert please refer to my previous post on the concert

after the concert we went for Satay Celup as our supper ....
too bad Lee Siang have to go back with her sister and Mellerie and the guy which i forgot the name went to eat with another GD friend .....
so its me, EJ, Lawrence, Sam, Chilli, Hui Wen, Shone and Shirleen again
we makan like nobodies business ....
its my very 1st time eating satay celup... its very delicious .... much like my hometowns "Lok Lok" just that its boiled in the Kuah Kacang instead of normal water...
i don't the whats the name and where the restaurant is situated but 1 thing i know is....
you wanna eat you have to queued up and the queue is very long.....
but we manage to eat in the end.....


so many people waiting

so many people queing

this is how it looks like before we eat it

waiting to be eaten up

raw food

dip everything inside and wait for it to be cooked

satay celup !

the nest morning before we go come back KL we decided to makan dulu ....
because i wanted to try how chicken rice ball taste like....
i called Shirleen again to ask where ....
well she told most shops thats nise sudah finish lor... because at that time its already 12 somehting already .... but she ask us to go Jonkers Street to eat as there is a famous shop there....
so we went there and jalan-jalan cari makan !!!


just tought the view is nise

jonkers street

looks nise to took a snap

so we found the 1st shop that time it has a little to less people eating which makes us doubt the taste of the food...
then we found another with more people that time we saw another shop with more people... as we reach that shop we saw another shop with even more people....
then we have decided to walk until the end only decide on which shop....
after that we decided to eat as this shop called Hoe Kee as they have the most customer hahahahaha
wat a lousy way to decide on the shop.....
well after eating then i know chicken rice ball is just normal chicken rice whereby the rice is moulded into a shape of a ball thats all ... nothing special ....
but the taste is as delicious as a chicken can be...


the Chinese version sing board

the english version

people queing up

this is how the inside looks like

sit until outside
