Second Homecoming: Part Three

Day 4 - Sunday

Thank God I was able to squeeze in this trip into my KL break. I was so looking forward to this trip coz I haven’t been to ‘Melaka’ for ages. I think it was 10 years ago since I stepped into ‘Jonker Street’. It finally happened and I had such a blast with that bunch of 7. Thank you all for organizing the trip!!! We went with 2 cars and of course, being the gentleman that I am (ahem) I drove SL's poor 'MyVi' all the way back and forth. Not only that, we drove around inside Melaka looking for yummy yummys and places to chill (it’s so cool that Melaka has so many chill-out spots!). Anyway, we went through the usual tourist route, i.e. ‘chicken ball rice’, shopping and chillin’ in ‘Jonker Street’, buying those biscuits, ‘A’Formosa’ sight-seeing, cooling down in ‘Mahkota Parade’ and had ‘Satay Celup’ for dinner. I guess I need to say a big THANK YOU to all (you know who) for organizing the trip and I had such a blast!!! Because pictures speak louder than words, here are some random pics I took out from my camera that day:

Day 5 - Monday

The day to leave KL had finally arrived and overall, I loved it. I seriously loved it. I still didn’t get to do many things (like going to ‘Maison’ for Derek’s b-day party. Sorry dude), but I had total enjoyment and relaxation way beyond my expectations. So, again, thank you all for spending time with me and thank you for all these great memories!!!

But before I boarded my car to KLIA (the flight was 6pm so there was still time for more!!!) Me and SL went to ‘Sunway Pyramid’ for lunch and I finally tried ‘Wendy’s’. With all the hype of ‘not cutting corners’ and people saying its better than McD’s (really?) I just had to see it for myself. I ordered the ½ pound beef burger and after much thinking and discussion with SL, yes I think it is better than McD. Why? Coz we are just simply bored with McD haha. A ½ pounder beef burger has 3 levels of beef goodness, and eating it with French fries and Coke, you will feel so full you will not want to any food for the entire day. My ranking among all the burger fast foods outlets are:

1.) Burger King
2.) Wendy’s
3.) McDonald’s
4.) Carl’s Junior
5.) KFC Burgers

Definitely worth a visit and money!!!

Time for my flight and left for the airport around 4:30pm (scary eh? My flight is at 6pm) and knowing that when I arrive in Labuan almost 9pm, I had to ‘tapau’ something for dinner to eat: it was ‘JCo Donuts’. All 6 pieces of them as dinner. YUMMY!! Anyway, until next time friends and family!!! Love u guys and gals loads!!! See you all in my 3rd return to KL soon!!!

What a trip! I mean the goodies and savouries. Melaka is so culturally rich. Although I blog about fabric heritage, the culinary heritage is much richer and thicker than I can imagine.

Glad that you liked the trip. Cheers!

maj said...

there is nothing macho about holding the biawak's tail!!!

aL said...

satay celup rawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwks!

Raymond said...


Yes I agree, its so amazing and extraordinary to think that just hours away from the concrete jungle of KL, we have a town so abundantly different with culture and arts in so many varieties such as food, arts, traditions and beliefs. Lets all do our best to keep this diversity as long as we can!!!

Hi JuneBug,

Thanks !! it isn’t the best of photographic professionalism but at least I try!! Haha ;)

Hi BengBeng,

Aiya, dun be envious la, next time when u go Melaka I join you ok? I show you around keke…

I think the food places I went was pretty easy to find, I recommend you to ask some of the locals for directions to the ‘satay celup’ or the ‘cendol gula melaka’ stalls and they will happily direct you to it. If you have a car, it should be no problems!! ^_^

Hi Maj,

Hahahah maj, Who said I was trying to be macho lah? I was just giving the girl some moral support by holding the tail. With my company, she smiled so radiantly & confidently didn’t she? ^_^

Hi aL,

It did? Honestly speaking it wasn’t that good hahaha…I dunno lah, I think the shop we went (Capitol) screwed up the taste coz I swear I saw the girl assistant poured too much of something into the mix, I dunno what lah, and the taste went anti-yummy. No kacang taste pun…my outside mamak’s satay tasted better kekeke…

oh, and by the way, i am actually a fan of A&W's mozza burger. how about a ranking for that?

Mariposa said...

very nice pics! your friend is very brave (the one with the iguana).

btw, world music festival was really fun. fret not, you can always catch it next year =)

Raymond said...

hi maj,

mozza is a no-zza for me maj, if i have to rank it, maybe it will be 87th on the list, just behind eveything else in A&W, except for their root beer float. ^_^ oklah, just for u i'll rank it 6th on the list ok? ;)

hi mariposa,

yes she was quite brave coz the iguana was abit twitchy and was moving about!! imagine the claws stomping you all over haha. but of course, me being the gentleman that i am (Ahem) held it down by its tail and my friend finally managed to take the picture ^_^
