Simple Spicy Dinner At Portuguese Village, Malacca

FOR ME, SHOPPING IS A NO-NO IN MALACCA... Firstly, I don't think I need to buy anything to wear and secondly, I walk as slow as a "tortoise"... true, I am still learning how to walk properly and normal again, walking long distance from one shop to another, my legs will definitely lose their "battery."  hahahahaha...  While I chilled out in the hotel room, the rest went out for their shopping spree around the vicinity of Hatten Hotel...

As for me in the room alone, I quickly called up one of my classmates who is residing in Malacca... First question... "Where to get good nyonya food?"  However she recommended that I should go and try out Portuguese Village... Sounds kind of interesting... Since we had never been there, the idea of trying the food there sounds great!
With the help of the GPS, Andy drove to the destination... 
The junction turning into the Portuguese Village....
Easily found our way here...
Lots of ample car park....
It was turning dusk..
The sunset was just right ahead...
Beautiful scene at this time of the day....
Low tide....
And the cameras... I mean handphones... started to click at one another...
And the Portuguese stalls.... 

We sat the Stall number 1 as recommended by my friend...
Quenching our thirst with this.... slurpppp.....
We just ordered out from the menu given to us...
Clams with ginger...
My favourite!
The red sambal was super spicy!!
Portuguese Curry Chicken...
Another super spicy item! 
Thank goodness we ordered one non-spicy dish... 
For this course of meal and fresh juices, the bill came to RM73
These dishes are not "Portuguese" enough...
Next time we should try more exotic ones... 
hehehehee...
And as usual, a picture to show our "footmark" at the Portuguese village.... 
Next destination to complete the day is Jonkers Street 
and the famous Nadeje Mille Crepes!

  1. Who's that? Your classmate? She looks so young. Or is she Andy's girlfriend? Wink! Wink! Been to the Portuguese Village a few times but I don't remember eating there. Loved the Portuguese grilled fish at Mid Valley though, very nice, very spicy.

  2. I have eaten in that Portugese Settlement area twice. I remember their food was nice and slightly very Eurasian styled with popular Ikan Bakar and signature Cardo Verde soup. They used a lot of cincaluk and the famous Devil's Curry & Egg tarts were in the menu too.

  3. The only thing Portuguese must be the curry chicken. Nevertheless, you enjoyed very good food!

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
