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.

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

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...
