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 season... 
We walked further up and thought of sitting on a trishaw... 
A'Famosa The Fort... built in 1511...
Further down the road, we approached the Church... 
The Church of Christ built by the Dutch... 
                                     Some pictures to show our "footprints" on this day... 
It was almost noon by then and our friends came by to pick us up.... 
From here, we went to Jonkers Street to get some goodies... and lunch as well!

  1. You didn't go up St Paul's Hill, see St Francis Xavier's statue, no hand one? Could have gone up Christ Church side...and come down A Famosa side.

    2. My husband, the chicken rice connoisseur, doesn't like them either. But I enjoyed them the last time I had them.

  6. Favorites today are the Pirate ship and the Trishaw! A great variety of really interesting things, like the old Dutch church.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
