phew.. finally back in Spore after a 2D1N at Equatorial Hotel.. stayed at the newly renovated premier room.

as it was my 5th time there.. so settled on those tried and tested food.. weather was really hot there!

first stop, Sun May Hiong pork satay at Jalan Kota Laksamana (ard Jonker Walk area).. they got varieties like pork, intestine, liver, chicken and gizzards.

next up, Hoe Kee chicken rice balls at Jonker walk, followed by Jonker 88 durian chendol.

Nedeje Patiserie mille crepes at Dataran Pahlawan megamall for tea break before heading to Ban Lee Siang satay celup at Jalan Ong Kim Wee for dinner.

on the way back see see look look at the Jonker night market.. bought Mdm Goh's pineapple tarts and a cowboy hat.. had foot massage at megamall and then tabao KFC back for supper.

next day morning had breakfast at Mac.. last time used to go Rong Mao dim sum at Jalan Tukang Besi (ard Jonker Walk area).. but this time legs too tired from the previous day walking..

checked out and had lunch at A&W.. went Jonker Walk again and had wonton mee at an unnamed coffeeshop near the stage area..

walked back and tabao the mille crepe to eat on the return trip to Spore..

sorry no photos taken.. activities were really packed at it was only a 2 day trip..

can't wait to back there again..!

Next time, you can also visit The Jetty. Can go there KTV, play pool and just have a drink at the look out point. Quite a lomantic place to drink coffee with your other half.

Gula melaka

hello, I was told Malacca sells pretty good quality gula melaka.. Previously my relatives brought back some for my mother but they can't remmeber the name of the shop they bought from..

I was wondering if anyone could recommend/suggest any shop(s) in Malacca selling good gula melaka?

Thanks in advance!

If for 2 is quite worth it.

Quick estimate calculation:

1). Coach (Delima Express) Sin - Mal = $21 x 2 = $42
2). Coach (Delima Express) Mal - Sin = $11 x 2 = $22
3). Mahkota Hotel (1-Bedroom Weekend)= $100 per night
Total = $164

Above estimation is exclude hotel/bus terminal transfer.
where did you buy the return? i'm quoted $28 for th return.

Wish to book Holiday Inn Melaka for 3 adults and given a number of choices namely, DELUXE 1KING BED STRAITS VIEW NONSMOKING or DELUXE 2 SGL BED STRAITS VIEW NONSMOKING. Which would be a better choice? For the third person, would they provide an additional bed?

I will be driving to Malacca. Have not been to Malaysia for quite a while. Understand that you need a Touch N Go card and that it is available for sale only in Malaysia. Do I need to use it when clearing customs, and where can one purchase such card?
