    Visitation To The 'Historical State: Melacca' - Part 1

    Whats On My Mind:

    Remember the 'missing key story' that I wrote about in my previous post?

    Jeff was the one who took the key..... -.- Oh well, at less I don't have to hire a lock smith so bash open the poor little compartment of mine. =)

    Our trip to Melacca wasn't much about visiting historical places like ordinary tourist would do when they visit Melacca.

    Therefore there wont be much pictures of buildings and historical artifact.

    Instead its more to food and hanging around with friends.

    This is what we call 'gastronomic tourism' a.k.a "eat & drink tourism".(Woot! I'm finally applying what I learned in 'Business in Hospitality and Tourism' class.) =D

    Anyway, we meet at Pudu Raya around 10am.

    Had breakfast and left for Melacca by 11am via bus.

    Pudu Raya is such a crazy place I tell you.. On the way we saw some crazy fella dancing in the middle of the walk way while listening to his mp3...

    KL was extra weird that day.

    Anyhow the 3 of us - Jeff, Sio Sen & I, would be meeting our host - Rebekah at Melacca Central once we reached.

    Our bus ride was rather alright, the sad part was there is a man sitting next to Jeff which has a really strong body odor.

    It was this bad...

    Along the way Sio Sen spotted a cute little baby in the other car and wanted to take a picture of him.

    I think Melacca people are one of the most spotting people around the country.

    The mother actually notice and gladly lift her little baby up for us to take a picture!

    After almost 2 hours, Melacca finally!

    After settling down at Rebekah's place, she drove us out for lunch at some famous satay shop.

    I cant believe penguin Rebekah is going to drive us around! =P

    This fact made Jeff felt it wouldn't be safe...

    This is how we looked like in the car.

    Its better then walking I guess. =P

    *This the way ah-ha-ah-ha she parked it ah-ha-ah-ha.....* =P

    (Sorry Rebekah, I couldn't resist it.) XD

    Food was the only thing(after going to the toilet) we craved for!

    This shop sells nothing else but satay.

    The meat is soft and easy to be pulled out from the stick, the amount of meat is very little. =(

    After all, its RM0.45 per stick.

    The sauce taste different from the ones from KL.

    I was told that they put 'gula melaka' in it.

    Not bad I would say.

    I haven seen these kinda parking ticket since the Titanic sinked!

    Even though we ate quite a lot, but we were still hungry..

    We then drove to another famous stall, this time we are getting ourselves some cendol.

    I like the way the decorate the shop with lots of historical kinda stuff.

    Making the place feel quite "at home".

    Personally I don't fancy cendol, therefore I din quite like it.

    But its still good to try new things. =)

    After all the eating, digestion is needed.

    We head over to a place call 'Dataran Pahlawan'.

    *The above conversation is fictional* Its made up due to
    author had nothing better to do... =)

    Its nothing but a really really really big field, its ground is super flat and coated with carpet grass.

    It pokes the ass...

    I've been seeing these kinda jumping pictures in friendster, so we decide to have one too!

    Some kick ass shoe shop in Melacca with one of a kind decoration!

    I said earlier that KL was kinda weird that day.

    But this weirdness thing seems like a national phenomena!

    What could be any weirder when you walked into an arcade center and saw this....
    Who the heck weirs a helmet playing Daytona USA?!

    Afraid your mama will hit you on your head because you ponteng school just to go arcade???

    Malaysia was wickedly weird that day... ~.~

    Later at night we went to some place known as Mori Cafe.

    Its kinda like a bar-cafe, where you just hang out with friends and hear some ah beng sing.

    Speaking of friends, I thought of Fandi a.k.a Eddie, if I was not mistaken, he should still be at Melacca today.

    I gave him a call, and true enough! So he came and join us for the day.

    Mori Cafe served quite a few drinks that I never ever came across before.

    Such as this jasmine tea + apple + milk.

    I really don't know whether to say it tasted good or bad.

    Sio Sen posing like Rebekah

    This is actually Rebekah's trade mark pose!

    Rebekah, don't you feel happy that everyone is "advertising" your pose? =D

    Overall, it was a fun 1st day at Melacca. ;)

    At Mori Cafe

    Alright, I think I'll post up to this point, enough of "the adventures of Melvin & friends at Melacca" for today.

    I will update the next part of the trip soon, so do come check it out if your free! =D

    Sailing away~~ :)

    Pre-Melacca Trip

    Thank the heavens, I'm finally doing something fruitful during the term 1 break!

    For days I have been rotting at home and dusting fungus off myself.

    I cant believe that I wasted my term 1 holidays just like that...

    Enough is enough!

    I need a story to talk about! I need to blog about something more exciting other then dogs getting banged by some car!

    And tomorrow will be the day of salvation!

    For I will be going down to Melacca! =D

    I'm set and ready to go!


    One thing is still hindering me... Yes! How could I forget my soul music companion!

    As I was trying to retrieve my ear phone from my little build in compartment.

    I pulled the handle, only to realize that is locked! How the heck does it got lock anyway?!

    Never mind...

    I placed my hand to search for the key at the keyhole, bare in mind, I NEVER took out the key since the ice age...

    Gosh save my day! WHERE IS THE FREAKING KEY??

    God knows who or...

    W-H-A-T took the key...


    Now what am I going to do in the bus, stare at birds outside the window?

    Anyhow, I'm still looking forward for this trip, see you guys when I am back! =D

    Animal Behavior

    Me: "Wah lao! Just now the TC4 ah, can win wan! We lost the life due to our stupidity la..." *whines*

    SK: "Aih what to do... Better luck next time I guess."

    *Chatting goes on*

    *Weird moaning kinda sound came from the back*

    SK and I looked towards the direction where the sound came from, and this was what we saw.

    All eyes were on that poor fella,

    Drivers whom are U-turning slowed down and check.

    It wasn't dead when it got banged.

    Some of you might know when dogs feel sad or in pain, they often make a really 'low pitch' kinda moaning sound.

    Thats just what I heard as the dog was desperately kicking its leg up, trying so hard to stand again.

    But to all in vain, I guess the poor fellas leg broke when the car hit it.

    His friends had already cross the street earlier, only to know later that their fellow comrade just got screwed by some human in the car.

    They stood there helplessly and watch as their buddy struggle to get on its feet.

    Moments later, the kicking of its leg starting to get lesser and lesser, soon there wasn't anymore kicking, it never moved again...

    His buddies knew he could no longer be saved.

    By the way, the dog wasn't dead, it just gave up...

    They turn their backs on him and start to walk away...

    For 5 seconds I thought, "eh! how can they leave their friend behind?!".

    And something struck my mind again, "oh ya, they are animals...".

    How would you feel if we as humans does that to another person?

    Or should I put it this way, someone does it to you?

    This simple but sad incident reminds me of a certain friend,

    seemingly quite a number of her friends had turn their backs on her, an issues came about and so on, I think it need not any further explanation, let us be nice people ok? =)

    All I can say is, some of your other friends are still here supporting you, don't give up yea! ;)


    Anyhow! In conjunction with my blog title today, I'll feature you picture evidence of animal behavior just behind our own backyard.

    No I'm not talking about Chong acting like a monkey that has never seen litters before.

    You get the picture rite? Look at de floor~

    Hmm... Need any further elaboration? =P

    More Fasting, Less Farting!

    Malaysia is such a beautiful country...

    Because you will never die of starvation no matter where you go.

    Every corner you turn, there are food stalls whether during morning, afternoon, evening or night.

    From road side...

    Beside someones house...

    On the walking pathway!


    What is even great, during the fasting month of Rahmadan.

    An entire bazaar of food & drink stalls would be open as early as 4PM.

    The normal quiet humble area of USJ 8 suddenly have to accept swarms of hungry people coming from all directions just to get food before their breaking fast time.

    Of cause la, this phenomena only happen once a year, and I never been to the bazaar near my area before.

    So I don't wan to miss out la.

    One big fat 'cucuk udang' cost ony RM0.50! Its worth it because the prawn is big.

    Selection of noodles from a single wok, normally its separated on a platter, something new. =)

    The aroma of 'sateh' can be smell few stall away from where its being barbeque.

    I walked around, I knew I was missing something, something I haven eaten for a long time..

    My old time favorite 'murtabak ayam'!

    I never eaten it since 3-4 years ago, the last time I ate one was back at Cameron Highlands.

    And the ones sold in Cameron Highland are much more bigger compare to these.

    But still, by looking at it, makes me drool..

    Mixing something, I don't know what it is, but it makes the 'murtabak' taste good!

    Mhmmm! Can you feel the chicken paste melt in your mouth after each juice bite?

    Some other finger food, RM1 for 3 piece.

    Good bargain compare to those mamak stalls selling it.

    How nice if this goes on everyday throughout the year!

    I know the bazaar in Bangsar Baru is much bigger that of this.

    Anyway, does anyone know where else got this kinda food galore?

    Do recommend it! =D

    So delicious, so cheap!

    Want some 'cucuk udang'? =D
