Xiang Ji Jonker Satay In Melaka

SINCE WE WERE STILL FULL FROM OUR BUFFET BREAKFAST AT THE HOTEL, our friends took us for a light lunch at a non-halal Satay shop called Xiang Ji.  It is located at 50, Jalan Portugis, very near to Jonker Street and just opposite SRJK Pay Teck, a chinese school.  I have never tasted pork satay before, only seen in Facebook people queuing up for the celup satay.  No, I did not go to that... boiling sauce and all that.  My friends took us for these instead....
A very modest shop along Portugis Street... 
Thank goodness no crowd cos of the off peak season... 
Preparations were being made as we entered... 
The sauce is kind of special.. a bit of sweet and sour...
Heard that it is made from either pineapple or "belimbing".... not sure...
And we replenish the sauce several times... 
First round 30 sticks of satay.. followed by another 20 sticks....
Chicken and pork satays... 
They are very thinly marinated... can eat them without the sauce too... 
The meat is tender and I like them cos they are not oily... 
Again, our friends gave us the treat so I don't know exactly how much they cost...
Oh, we had Muar Otak-Otak as well... 
By then I could not eat much, just one piece only... 
And I dipped it into the satay sauce as well.... 
After our supposedly light lunch, we went for desserts... 
My son wanted to get some stuff from Tan Kim Hock .... 
The Melaka Tree in front of the building... 
And since we were there, we tried their Cendol... 
It was supposed to be Durian Cendol but it was not fresh durian...
More like the Dodol mixture... 
And my son said Penang cendol is still the best!
hahhhaa... 
Soon it was 2pm or so, it is time to bade goodbye to our Malacca Friends... 
They dropped us back at our hotel and from there, we parted and went our separate ways.... 
Really thanked them for their friendliness, generosity and hospitality....
Hope we meet again soon, either in Ipoh, Malacca or Aberdeen!

  1. I like pork satay. And lamb satay as well. Better than beef and chicken which could be pretty tough sometimes. As long as they have those fat in the pork and lamb satays, I could eat many sticks! hehehe!

    Ooh, Melaka cendol. Glad I had my dose of Melaka cendol last week. There is an authentic Melaka food outlet over here, so I could have my dose of cendol whenever I want. Post is coming up soon.

  3. Eyewwwwww!!! Tan Kim Hock, no, thank you. Over-commercialised, it has lost its appeal already, not so nice anymore.

    2. No no, proper satay. Immediately I can think of BB cafe (opposite the Sunshine pasar pagi, adjacent to Subway) during lunch time, and in Teluk Kumbar, at here: http://www.realgunner.com/2014/11/restoran-teluk-kumbar-seafood.html

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
