Melacca Makan Day Trip

Nothing can stop me, the trip is planned, i am going! At 11pm Fri night, senior told me i had to go back to the office on Sat morn to print the stupid stat accounts. Damn it man, i drove there at 11pm Fri night instead and did all i had to do (for now). Went home at 3.30am.

Woke up at 9.05am. Some of my friends were already at my house. I drove the group to Melacca, their chatter and catching up kept me awake throughout the 2hour plus journey =)

Cuz we were starving, we went to get one of Melacca's most blogged about dish:

First time trying it and my perspective? Normal chicken rice is better la, dun really fancy my rice in balls. RM31

A colleague, who did the unit trust fund with me, told me i need to get my priorities straight... I was confused. What does he mean? What if my priorities in life are different from his?

THIS is my priority in life, to lead a balanced life, to enjoy my youth, experience new things. I wanna stare into the sky, see colours!

Right after eating chicken rice, we went to a Nyonya place called Donald and Lily. Cute little stuffy place with Baba n Nyonya ornaments and decorations...

and killer good laksa!

God, one thing i hate about food blogs is that they make me hungry. How do u guys blog about food and not hear your stomach growl while blogging?

The 8 of us shared 2 bowls! Haha, and one chicken dish and a weird rojak. We forgot to order the prawns. And we shared 4 chendols between 8 people! HAHAH. RM37.

Then we walked along the street and took pictures along the way. In a free Nyonya museum:

Love my own photography skills. Hahha, consoling myself for not being in the picture.

Most of the shoplots there have these airwells in the middle:

That one's at the museum

And this one is at the popular chendol place we went to after we were done walking in and out of almost every shop on Jonker Street:

Love the chendol. Laksa aint bad too. We made the right choice of going there in the afternoon, only had to stalk some people who were almost finish with their food to get a table. In the evening, people were queuing up to go inside!

After that, we drove to McDonalds just to enjoy some aircond. But when we parked at the carpark, we started taking pictures in the car and didnt event bother with McD!

The sleeping Buddha picture! HAHAH. I'm at the back cuz i was so exhausted, LY took over the wheel.

Next we did a number pose! We assigned everyone with a number between 1 to 8

Not easy making sure everyone can be seen in the pic. Even harder making sure all our fingers can be seen. Can u see my lucky number 8?

Last but not least! The Ju-On pic!

Cute right? All the ghosts going after the only guy! Haha, love this picture

We snapped pix till it got too dark to take decent pix in d car. And then we went for an early dinner.

Watching the people at the shop prepare our Satay Celup

When we left we were amazed to see how long the queue got!

Just had to take a pic and laugh at all these poor hungry people.

We took more pix, damn i dun have the one in front of the church. And here's one by the river:

Man, we really are nuts! There was an auntie staring at us when we were camwhoring in the car.

Got proper pix also!

Then we just browsed through the pasar malam, had bubble tea and watch Dee get a fake tattoo...

A pic of crazy E and I:

That sums up our day in Melacca =)

Thats RM33.70 per person for our trip! Covers most of our meals, toll, petrol and parking. Cool eh?

Hahah, hey Deb! Blame it on Elwyn, he loves me with super long hair, so i hardly get motivation to cut. Until lately, everyone! I mean everyone! The senior, the client. Other colleagues started telling me your hair is so long. What DO they mean by that? I cannot tahan, i went to cut d.

My mom n sis say not nice =( But thx Deb! =)

I damn stress a lot lately Deb, can we go back to our form 2G days???

Yup, Joey, when we split the toll and petrol between 8 ppl, it gets really cheap. Plus we got away with ordering not so much food at each place. Just SHARE
