The only regret from the trip is that I didn't get to try ANY local delicacies, e.g. Melaka Chicken Rice (鸡饭粒), Cendol etc... But these are a few destinations that we went to:
1. Melaka Zoo
Just so you know I am notoriously known for taking TONS of wildlife pictures; during my std 6 year end trip to singapore, I finished the one and only roll of film taking zoo pictures -_-" (didn't have digital camera back then)
Presenting the tip of the iceberg...
Two lemurs yearning to join another lemur inside that enclosure. So darn ironic. I bet the one inside wants to come out la -_-"
Oh ya my father cracked a joke when we saw the deer.
Dad: You know the difference between a "high deer" and "old deer"?
Me: No. What?
Dad: One is "Hi, dear!" and the other is "Oh, dear!"
Educated Orang Utan! But I wonder how come he/she wasn't locked up (only him/her la) and just allowed to roam in the open; people might get hurt
2. Maritime Museums
There are a couple of them located close to each other but honestly there's nothing much to see
One of the museums are shaped like a ship. And you have no idea how many times I heard people around me crack jokes about "the Carribean sea" and "Captain Jack Sparrow"
My dad at his jokes again. (This is the ship captain's room)
Me: How come the wall and the floors all senget (lopsided) one?
Dad: So when there's a storm and the seas go rocky, the room will appear upright lo...
3. Menara Taming Sari (Taming Sari Tower)
There was a freaking long queue... I strongly suggest not to go on weekends/public holidays. You'll spend 90% of the time waiting.
The circular part revolves 3/4 times at the peak before it comes down again... You can take in the full view of Melaka--The Stadhuys, St. Paul's Church, the museums and even Eye on Malaysia. Definitely worth it.
Eye on Malaysia from the top of the tower
4. A Famosa Fort
5. Eye on Malaysia
We were having small talk with other passengers in the gondola.
Woman to mom: Your daughter ah? How old?
Mom: This year, 17
Woman: Wah! Really ah? She looks so... young...
Mom: *laughs and smiles*
Me: *looks on peacefully but feeling -_-"*
Even the ticket master at the zoo asked my mom.
"Ini... above 12 kah?"
YESYESYES!! FREAKING YES!! Sudah above 12! 5 tahun dahulu lah abang!
6. Melaka River Cruise
There was also a super super long queue here... I think about 1 or 2 km. And the whole cruise took about 45 mins. So how long were the others supposed to wait?? (oh ya fyi we went 1st since we booked early ^^)
The river was pretty clean for Malaysian standards and VERY SQUEAKY CLEAN for Klang standards
So due to traffic jam + queuing up = we didn't get to go Jonker Street. It was supposed to be pasar malam-ish with lots of stuff to buy...
p.s. Suat Hoon and I went to Grace's Christmas house party last night! (another Grace. Not grace from last post.) Will update next time :)
