Springing To Malacca

A WEEK AFTER I LANDED IN MALAYSIA, my sister and her husband also flew back.  

Just nice for me to clean up the house and get it ready to "welcome" them as they had welcomed me into their home.  That explained why I had kind of "abandoned" this blog for quite some time.  I was practically springing from one place to another.  Not wise for my age but then..... 

After settling down for a few days in KL, we made a short trip to Malacca, it was just two hours plus away from my brother's house.  We booked one night at an Air BnB, by the name of Ong Kim Wee Residence, a two rooms furnished apartment for RM300.  Definitely much cheaper than staying in a few stars hotel.  :)

Malacca.... what did we do?  Did a lot of walking and of course eating as well.  I did not take much pictures of the food, I wonder what I was thinking then.  So this post will be filled with humans wannabe models instead of the yummy food.... LOL....

We parked our car here.....
And walked all the way to Jonkers street....
The trio walking along the Riverfront....
Drizzling a bit but did not deter us from getting ice cream!
Little Venice....
Humans again.....
Me and my "Besan"
My in-laws....
And at our place for the night....
The next morning we proceeded to Johor!



  1. It has been years since the last time I went to Melaka. The river used to be so dirty long ago, and so smelly too until they did something about it. It does not look as clean as the Singapore River though - that river was the same before, dirty and smelly but they did something about it too.

  2. Great fun pics; Little Venice looks awesome!!

  3. So your sister and BIL came to your "kawasan" and your turn to play host. My parents stayed in Malacca which was my dad's last posting before he retired. I visited a few times and visited the A Famosa and was so surprised it was just a miserable "pintu gerbang". Not what I imagined when I studied sejarah LOL!

  4. Wah, so nice for everyone to cuti cuti Malaysia after cuti cuti USA. 👍

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
