A Peranakan Lunch At Nancy's KitcheN, Malacca

MY MALACCA TRIP WAS SPENT relaxing and going for my meals only.... While the rest of the family went shopping, I spent my time in the hotel room and waiting for them at the lobby when we checked out.  I could only strolled along the hotel area, there were a few shopping outlet within MY walking distance, H&M is one of them.  But I did not end up buying anything, could not find anything that suits me, the designs and the prices, none caught my eye.... hahahaha... 

We thought of skipping lunch and headed straight back to KL but whilst doing so, a shop caught the driver's eye.. He suggested that we should try Nyonya food before heading back.  He must be pretty hungry, actually I was hungry too... I only took a light buffet breakfast in the morning.... The shop which caught his eye was none other than Nancy's KitcheN!  This shop was mentioned in the tourist booklet we read in the hotel...

Authentic Peranakan Food... 

The shop was fully occupied... but thank goodness, we managed to get a table upon entering...
Otherwise we have to climb the stairs to the second floor....
For appetizers, we started off with a Nyonya Popiah...
I like it... Sweet and nice... 
And the thick santanic cendol...
My sister said it was the BEST so far!!
Peranakan Otak-Otak.... 
Four angles beans.... Very spicy too...
 Cincaluk omelette... 
Peranakan Curry Chicken....
Fried Rice.... 
Our Peranakan Lunch at Nancy's KitcheN....
Bill came to around RM70 plus plus drinks with beer.... 
Feeling much satisfied after an authentic lunch, 
we proceeded on our journey back to Sg Buloh....

  2. Must not leave Melaka without eating authentic nonya food, right? All the dishes look nice. I love that type of popiah very much!

  4. I love the otak-otak the most.. When my kolik balik kampung to Melaka, I sure ask him to buy me a few blocks of otak-otak, just like in the picture.. Then I just thaw, and steam on top of the rice cooker.. Sedappp..

  6. I love nyonya food but so far, the ones I went to in Malacca and Penang had been disappointing. I went to Mako, it was so good years ago but not anymore. :(

  7. I hear a new word Kolik!Yum! Yum! Yummy! I always love everything inside the Nyonya Menus. They are very tasty and appetizing until China folks also love them like heavens.

    I am following your footsteps to travel while we are still able and capable. i realised that my legs and pockets are most important. LOL

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
