Our Intense Getaway - Malacca First Stop

WHERE WAS I...

My blog was "neglected" for a number of days, that was when the owner had gone away for a four days trip down south to Johor.  It has been nearly two years since I last landed in Johor.  Days before my trip took place, the situation have been very tense.  To go or not to go... to be able to or unable to.... 

Due to our Mr Covid spiking up during the last two weeks, it is not surprising that the Movement Control Order will take place again.  I was quite worried about the Interstate Lockdown whereby when we reach JB, we might end up staying there for a couple of weeks or months like the time in March.  I do not mind staying back, but my two faithful friends who followed me to Johor, they might end up "locked" in our little nest in Johor.  LOL... 

Anyway, as my friend said, "Go in Faith.... " and we did... last Thursday.  We started our journey around 8 in the morning after our breakfast and drove all the way to Malacca to have our lunch.  Waze brought us to Nyonya Lin, half an hour away from Malacca town.  Wrong choice... but then we did not know until we reached there... LOL... 
I think it is a newly developed area...
Most of the shops were not opened yet...
Very quiet even during lunch time.... 
Here is the shop... oh, not actually a shop but a hotel....
Nyonya Lin's Kitchen
Info: It is actually a two-and-a half year-old restaurant ensconced in Kapitan Kongsi, 
a Peranakan-themed hotel in Porto Historia, a relatively new part of Malacca town.
Very "Nyonya-like" feel.... 
Every part reminded me of the series Little Nyonya... 
Upon entering Nyonya Lin's Kitchen... 
Cendol with lots of santan and thick palm sugar.... 
The green cendol is soft and nice.. 
We ordered two to share among us three.... RM5.80 for each... 
These beautiful plates were laid in front of us... 
Ayam buah keluak...
Chicken and what is Keluak, by the way?
We did not know how to enjoy eating the Keluak... 
Ended up putting them aside.... 
Cincaluk omelette... 
And a mixed vegetables... 
The three dishes were okay, okay only... 
Nothing much to shout about really... 
Well, never try, won't know... 
After trying, then we know... 
Then we made a stop to the famous Authentic Nyonya Chang...
Bought some Bah Chang and pineapple tarts from Michelle Soo
and we continued on our way to Johor....

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
