Simple Spicy Dinner At Portuguese Village, Malacca

FOR ME, SHOPPING IS A NO-NO IN MALACCA... Firstly, I don't think I need to buy anything to wear and secondly, I walk as slow as a "tortoise"... true, I am still learning how to walk properly and normal again, walking long distance from one shop to another, my legs will definitely lose their "battery."  hahahahaha...  While I chilled out in the hotel room, the rest went out for their shopping spree around the vicinity of Hatten Hotel...

As for me in the room alone, I quickly called up one of my classmates who is residing in Malacca... First question... "Where to get good nyonya food?"  However she recommended that I should go and try out Portuguese Village... Sounds kind of interesting... Since we had never been there, the idea of trying the food there sounds great!
With the help of the GPS, Andy drove to the destination... 
The junction turning into the Portuguese Village....
Easily found our way here...
Lots of ample car park....
It was turning dusk..
The sunset was just right ahead...
Beautiful scene at this time of the day....
Low tide....
And the cameras... I mean handphones... started to click at one another...
And the Portuguese stalls.... 

We sat the Stall number 1 as recommended by my friend...
Quenching our thirst with this.... slurpppp.....
We just ordered out from the menu given to us...
Clams with ginger...
My favourite!
The red sambal was super spicy!!
Portuguese Curry Chicken...
Another super spicy item! 
Thank goodness we ordered one non-spicy dish... 
For this course of meal and fresh juices, the bill came to RM73
These dishes are not "Portuguese" enough...
Next time we should try more exotic ones... 
hehehehee...
And as usual, a picture to show our "footmark" at the Portuguese village.... 
Next destination to complete the day is Jonkers Street 
and the famous Nadeje Mille Crepes!

  1. Who's that? Your classmate? She looks so young. Or is she Andy's girlfriend? Wink! Wink! Been to the Portuguese Village a few times but I don't remember eating there. Loved the Portuguese grilled fish at Mid Valley though, very nice, very spicy.

  2. I have eaten in that Portugese Settlement area twice. I remember their food was nice and slightly very Eurasian styled with popular Ikan Bakar and signature Cardo Verde soup. They used a lot of cincaluk and the famous Devil's Curry & Egg tarts were in the menu too.

  3. The only thing Portuguese must be the curry chicken. Nevertheless, you enjoyed very good food!

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... 

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
