Aunty Lee Nyonya Food In Malacca

RESTED ONE DAY IN JOHOR just in case of jet lag and the following day, we drove 200 over kilometers to the historical city, Malacca!  The last trip I went was in February, just after Chinese New Year and let me tell you, the place was just "flooded" with tourists then.  Never ever go during peak season unless one loves the crowd and queuing up for food.  hahahahaa...  The weather during CNY was extremely hot too and to our delight, this time it was unlike of what we experienced during the peak season.

Firstly, there as no heavy traffic on the highway... and we drove in to Malacca via Jasin... 
Using Waze, we drove to Hatten Hotel without much hassle... 
I booked through booking.com and it was much cheaper than walking in.
One night cost RM228 with breakfast and walking in is around RM276.
We parked our car and checked in but we could only go into the room around 3pm...
This time round we were so blessed to have a local and lovely couple to take us around...
They were waiting for our arrival at the lobby and we were whisked off for Lunch straightaway!
This is the place we were brought to... away from the tourists... 
We left our orders to them and for appetizers, we had Pai Tee... 
We DIY our own stuffings into the crispy Pai Tee cups..
And into our mouth at one go... oh MY!
The taste was simply fabulous!
I must go for this again!!
As for the dishes... oh me oh my!
I was really drooling by then... 
Crispy fried fish with sambal...
Ponteh Chicken...
Prawns in pineapple curry... not spicy and definitely suit my tastebuds!
Steamed okra as usual... my favourite and theirs as well!
I thought it would be super spicy by looking at the red chillies..
But to my delight, they were not, in fact they were sweetened!
Everyone laughed when the camera just have to "eat first" instead of humans!
See what I mean?  We do love to take pictures and looking pro at it!!
For desserts, we had cendol .... 
And the gula melaka syrup is up to individual's takings... 
The best for last.... 
Price of the meal?  
No, we did not ask... as the local couple keep saying...
"You are our guests... Don't worry, Just be Happy!!"
Yes, we were indeed Blessed..
Thank You!!

  14. Yeah, don't worry be happy! :D

    I've never had Pai Tee before, even though my mom is Malaccan. I think she doesn't really fancy it herself. Every time we go back (which is not that frequent also), chicken rice balls only. :/

  15. Long time didn't go Malacca, I will note down the name of this restaurant, can try if I go Malacca next time

    Ah that Parkson shopping centre, I remembered we went there shopping the last time we went Malacca

    I love all the food shown here, but I am a bit skeptical about the fish, if with many bones, I don't think I will like it

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
