Random Roadtrip to MalaccaFriday, June 07, 2013
According to my web stats for the past few months, many people have been actually coming to my blog because of the blog post I did about Phuket, Batam, Bangkok, etc.
It was about 3.30pm when we reached Malacca's Jonker Street. We were so hungry that we decided to have their signature chicken rice balls! Yes, Malacca is famous for their chicken rice balls because of its unique way of eating the rice as compared to Singapore's.
We went for Famousa's outlet just right outside the entrance of Jonker Street.
I guess if you're looking for a place to shop and expect to find trendy clothes/bags/shoes etc, this is not the place you'd want to shop :(
Their bags and clothes are not very trendy, mostly quite old fashioned but if you're lucky enough, you can prolly get a few trendy stuffs at quite a reasonable price!
Next up was the famous Durian Chendol Shop along Jonker Street!
It's located near the entrance and it is a MUST TRY if you're a durian lover!!!!
*I kinda forgot what the shop's name was but it's quite noticeable*
After that, we walked down as we wanted to go to the Malacca' famous Christ Church.
We decided to hang out at Dataran Pahlawan Shopping Centre instead so we went to park the car at the nearby hotel which only charges at RM 2 for 4 hours! Whoop, that is only $0.90 for 4 freaking hours!!
The link between the hotel and Dataran Pahlawan has a few shops that sell really cheap and pretty clothes! I was going abit crazy over there :P Wanted to buy a few dresses but I wanted to save the money for our Korean dinner later :P
I love walking at Dataran Pahlawan Shopping Mall! Their mall is huge and there're quite a lot of things to walk and see!! They're like a mini version of Fareast Plaza, but they're only 2 storeys. Hehe.
After that, we walked out to take the Menara Tamingsari ride. It's one of Malacca's famous attractions too!
We paid RM 15 for each person cos we said we were locals :P Obviously she started talking to us in Malay and we just nodded our heads like idiots. LOL.
So the ride went up super high...... And we could see the entire Malacca! I was a little scared cos it felt like it was going to drop down anytime and we would all die in pieces boohoo :'(
Anyway, it is a good experience that everyone should go for when you're in Malacca!
Now, the best part........
One of the best Korean restaurants in Malacca is just located right next to Pahlawan Shopping Centre and opposite Starbucks. We've been patronising them everytime we visit Malacca because their service and food are just SO GOOD!
Do visit Daorae Korean Restaurant when you're there!!
Visit them when you're in Malacca! ;)
Grabbed a hot Green Tea latte from Starbucks before heading back home~
Another 2 hours ride back home and though we were tired but we enjoyed ourselves so much! :)
