We The Tourists At Jonkers Street, Malacca

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR, we went for a one night stay in the historical town, Malacca!  The traffic was pretty smooth on the highway but once we reached the Malacca toll, the road leading to town was all pretty jam up with tourists... And we made the mistake of going straight to Jonkers Street for our lunch of all the places....
We got down from our cars while the drivers went looking for parking.... 
So many tourists like us....
And the cars were moving at a very slow pace...
Probably all were looking for car park....
Right in the middle of the Jonkers...
People here and everywhere... 
I thought this was an eatery place... but more on desserts and souvenirs...
My girl has to queue up next door instead.... 
While queuing up, this attracted my eyes....
Eat while they are hot....
As for our lunch, never go on a crowded day....
Don't mind the presentation....
Eat just to fill our tummies... 
20 Chicken Balls....
And our lunch for seven people cost RM102....

My tired and exhausting look... 
Can't wait to check in to the hotel and ...............  
RELAX......

  3. Long time I didn't eat Putu Piring. Dishes looks good & instead of chicken rice ball, I prefer the loose rice.

  5. If I ever want to visit Jonkers street, I better remember to go on normal working days. Wouldn't want to be caught in traffic jam.

  8. I went Jonker once to buy the nyonya chang some people blogged about - went round and round and round so many times in search of the shop and the woman was so snooty like hers were the best in the world, not friendly at all...and the chang were just so-so only - much nicer ones in Kuching...from much nicer people.

    1. There are always different types of people everywhere not just in one place... too bad she discouraged you from buying anymore... I like the nyonya food there...

  9. Lastime b4 trying chicken rice balls, I very harap can try.. Then when I tried it at Jonker Street, I still prefer the normal chicken rice (served on a plate), coz the balls type are a bit sticy, and I think they add water to be able to roll it with hands.. I can imagine eating people's "daki" on the balls, coz they roll by hands, haha..

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
