September 25, 2007 (Part 1)

Does this look familiar to you? If you have no slightest idea of what building is this, or where is it, then I doubt how do you pass your History... *grins* I had been in Malacca for two days with Kynne, Shuzhen, Gin Hwa and Alan. It was a nice trip indeed and I hope to pen down the sweet memories.

September 25, 2007
I finally switched off my laptop and quickly packed my brief luggage and then crawled to bed. Sleeping for just an hour and I was awaken by my friend's sms telling me he has updated his blog. -.- I tossed and turned for half an hour but can't get to sleep, and so I switched on my laptop to check blog again. After an hour, I switched off my laptop, made sure I had set my alarm to 05:30 because we would kick off at 06:30 to avoid traffic jam. I was tossing and turning on my bed for another two hours(at least) and finally I got to sleep. Phew... I was awaken again by my phone but it was not alarm; it was Kynne calling me!!! *sweat* It was 06:30 and I still hadn't gotten myself ready. After apologizing to Kynne, I quickly brushed up myself and grabbed my luggage, and torn down the staircase and crawled into Kynne's car. It was 07:00 that time. -.-

Luckily only I was late, others were punctual, we were still able to avoid the morning traffic jam. While on the way to Malacca, we asked each other what time we slept the night before and all said "I can't sleep, I only sleep for few hours" *grins* Were we too excited? Personally I didn't feel I was excited as it was normal for me to go travelling with friends but some how I couldn't find the underlying reason why I couldn't get to sleep though I had only 3-hour-sleep on the day of my last paper.

With Kynne's great skill, we arrived at Malacca at 09:00 safely. *grins* And so we started our food hunting cum travelling mission! While waiting for Kynne to park his car, the aroma of the chicken rice from the restaurant nearby hit our nostrils; we couldn't help but our drools streamed down our chin ceaselessly. Without any delay, we head to the famous chicken rice ball shop to have our breakfast first.

Our first meal. Perhaps I have too high expectation on it as I was told it is beyond praise, some how I find this only slightly above average.

09:45 to 12:00
We walked around Malacca town and snapped many pictures. The town is reallly well decorated and clean. I felt safe there too as there were police patroling using helicopter, car, horse and of course on foot! They are friendly too, they tried their best to answer our every question. Whenever we were doubt of which direction to take to arrive at one destination we'd go into the tourist police station. *grins*

With Shuzhen

Friendly police with fluent English!!!

He could ride horse while on duty. I wished to ride also!!! Some how he complained about the hot weather. *sweat*

I felt myself getting dehyrated after walking under the hot sun for two hours. And so we walked to the stall in front of the fountain to have ais kacang and cendol. We couldn't find a stall named"Menggis Cendol" so we just managed to eat the normal ais kacang and cendol.

After rejuvenating ourselves, we walked along the Jonker Street to buy some souvernirs. I was amazed by the shops in Malacca. The owners seem like putting in a lot of efforts to make their shop as unique as possible. I really enjoyed "shopping" there though some of the stuffs there were expensive.

Above are some of the unique design of butique and souvenir shops.

Our lunch was chicken rice ball as well but at different restaurant!! *smile* Most of them said this morning one was better but I felt both had their different styles, both were nice too. After getting ourselves full, we continued to shop again for another one to two hours. At around 15:00 we found we couldn't drag ourselves on anymore; hence, we checked in hotel to rest for a while and plan where to go and what to eat later.

Many celebrities had been here before
