We The Tourists At Jonkers Street, Malacca

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR, we went for a one night stay in the historical town, Malacca!  The traffic was pretty smooth on the highway but once we reached the Malacca toll, the road leading to town was all pretty jam up with tourists... And we made the mistake of going straight to Jonkers Street for our lunch of all the places....
We got down from our cars while the drivers went looking for parking.... 
So many tourists like us....
And the cars were moving at a very slow pace...
Probably all were looking for car park....
Right in the middle of the Jonkers...
People here and everywhere... 
I thought this was an eatery place... but more on desserts and souvenirs...
My girl has to queue up next door instead.... 
While queuing up, this attracted my eyes....
Eat while they are hot....
As for our lunch, never go on a crowded day....
Don't mind the presentation....
Eat just to fill our tummies... 
20 Chicken Balls....
And our lunch for seven people cost RM102....

My tired and exhausting look... 
Can't wait to check in to the hotel and ...............  
RELAX......

  3. Long time I didn't eat Putu Piring. Dishes looks good & instead of chicken rice ball, I prefer the loose rice.

  5. If I ever want to visit Jonkers street, I better remember to go on normal working days. Wouldn't want to be caught in traffic jam.

  8. I went Jonker once to buy the nyonya chang some people blogged about - went round and round and round so many times in search of the shop and the woman was so snooty like hers were the best in the world, not friendly at all...and the chang were just so-so only - much nicer ones in Kuching...from much nicer people.

    1. There are always different types of people everywhere not just in one place... too bad she discouraged you from buying anymore... I like the nyonya food there...

  9. Lastime b4 trying chicken rice balls, I very harap can try.. Then when I tried it at Jonker Street, I still prefer the normal chicken rice (served on a plate), coz the balls type are a bit sticy, and I think they add water to be able to roll it with hands.. I can imagine eating people's "daki" on the balls, coz they roll by hands, haha..

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...

We thought we would be sleeping in these type of chalets when we checked in on Monday. But no, the lobby girl led the way.... passing by here.... and to this.... ....place instead... they looked new to me, thank goodness, only the weather turned us off on the first day, it was Xtremely hot that day and the air con was not working that good... that was why I complained on the 1st day but it was much better on Tuesday... we could stand outside here and have a little chat.... this was the place we stayed for 2 nights... ok lar. . I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
