Our Peranakan Lunch At Kocik Kitchen, Malacca

We checked out from St Gildes Hotel Mid Valley around noon... no proper breakfast, each of us just gulped down a bun and off we went.  We wanted to leave 'space' for lunch at the historical town, Malacca!
Forgotten how long it has been since I last visited this state.....
Passing by the red row of shophouses....
Historical sights....
Christ Church....
Beautiful and striking... right in middle of the town and on the way to Jonkers Street...
After some minutes with the parking and searching for food...
we finally managed to get seated at this place called Kocik Kitchen!
Finally get to taste the Creamy Cendol!
Malacca style!
First time taking Ayam Ponteh....
I told my girl that I would do this one day...
She looked at me in disbelief...
Alright, I will take up the challenge!
Fish with Sambal...
Cute Otak Otak Balls...
Cincaluk Omelet...
Love this...!!!  
My favourite Vege!
We were so hungry that everything was finished to the brim....
What a Peranakan Lunch...
Love to come back again...
Hopefully not few years later... 
hahahaa...
Ok, as for the bill, it came to around RM100

  3. Nice?

    I went to Mako - used to be the best in the 90's when I first went, not anymore. I can cook better. Guess the old folks have died or retired, others taking over...maybe even somebody employed, not family.

    And so many people, had to put name down in a list...to wait for one's turn, for them to come and call. I wanted to leave...but my good friend, Mandy, said we might as well wait since we went all the way and were there already. Luckily we did not have to wait too long.

  4. Malacca, food heaven paradise. Owh, scrumptous nyonya dishes. At one time, people crazy about their chicken rice balls but for me, I still prefer the loose chicken rice. Love the cincaluk omelette & veg. Guess you have a great time in Malacca doing your jalan jalan cari makan.

  5. Been there in 1998 after finished my college. Remember that red building very well. Haha.

    I dont think I ever try ayam ponteh before. I thought go to Melacca is to have its chicken rice balls? Hahaha.

    What is on the top of lady fingers? I love lady fingers too and if hubby is at home, I will just boil my lady fingers and then strain them. Fry lots of garlics and pour on top of the lady fingers. Add some oyster sauce too. Simple and delicious.

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....

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

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
