Sightseeing At A'Famosa And Christ Church, Melaka

WOKE UP TO A VERY NICE WEATHER IN MALACCA... After our buffet breakfast at the hotel, both of us ventured out for sightseeing by walking.  From the hotel, we went up to level 3 and found the link bridge that connected all the way to the Pahlawan Mall just next to Mahkota Parade.  From there, we walked another 10 minutes to A Famosa and St. Paul church, Jonkers Street...

I am so glad and thankful that I could really walk and explored this time round.  To my surprise, these tourist spots are just around the vicinity of the hotel.
First building that caught our eyes when we reached.... the Museum...  Entrance was free and we went in to "refresh" our minds on Independence history... On a weekday, there was no crowd... good to see some security around..  So nice to walk at our own leisure and pace...  Within the compound of the museum... Surprised to see these two named after the historical warriors..  I am sure this place will be flooded with people during weekends and peak sea…

One Night Stay At Hatten Hotel, Melaka

MY SECOND STAY IN HATTEN HOTEL... the very first time was in February, just a few days after Chinese New Year.  I remember during that time, I was still using the walking stick to help me move around.  Due to the inconvenience, I did not walk around the vicinity of the hotel.  Now few months later, I went exploring around the hotel, from the ground floor to the shopping level above and from there, we walked further and further away till we reached some tourist spots.

Coming back to my topic on Hatten Hotel, it is really convenient for tourists like us to stay here.  I made a booking through the online website, the rates were lower than those who walk in.  Oh, before we came, we made plans to visit the swimming pool area but due to our "busyness", we did not make it to the pool.  We have to wait for another opportunity to do so....

At the lobby, this time round it was not super peak season as the previous stay....  A vast and impressive lobby...  At the concierge area while w…

Seafood At Tong Sheng Restaurant, Malacca

IT WAS ALMOST 6PM WHEN WE FINALLY REACHED HATTEN HOTEL after our fruitful trip to the durian plantations.  What a long and productive day! The day is not over yet, dinner was still pending, in another two hours, our host/hostess would be coming to pick us up for a scrumptious meal!  Quickly we freshened up and had a short rest in the hotel room.  Fingers were busy on touching the handphones to keep up with the daily emails and notifications.

Soon the two hours passed and we got ready and waited at the hotel lobby for our friends to fetch us for dinner.  We did not know what we had in store for we are not so familiar with Malacca food. Our friends were very punctual and we were whisked off to a restaurant called FATSO.  Upon reaching, the restaurant was closed... but no worries, we proceeded to another restaurant called Tong Sheng. Seems that these two restaurants are the famous ones in Malacca for their seafood...

This is how Tong Sheng looks like on a weekend...  *taken from my son&#…
