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....

  1. I love cincaluk omelette. Maybe I'll cook that for dinner. No lockdown in Melaka, eh? Ipoh neither...but still, best to #staysafe #staywell #stayhome!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
