It was only a short 2-day/1-night trip and it flew by too quickly. We had every type of food imaginable that can be found in Melaka - Nyonya, Portuguese, chicken rice balls, dim sum and we almost overdosed on cendol. Violet even bought me a Black Forest cake. So I went ahead (again!) and cut another cake 2 weeks after my actual birthday.
While the folks went gallivanting, Alwin, Violet and I traversed the town and found ourselves at a new Spanish-inspired hotel called Casa del Rio. It's refreshing to see a new hotel in Melaka, and it was very beautiful too. We ended up eating again - this time at the hotel's River Cafe. Aptly named, as the cafe overlooks the not-so-clean Melaka River. We shared a tandoori chicken pizza named Pride and it was divine!
What other random things did we do? Let's see... We laughed a lot, bought dodol and fish crackers, went for a massage, hit the pool and got slapped with a summon for failing to display the parking coupon, which we paid only 10 bucks to settle. Almost the price of parking the car at Pavilion KL for 2 hours. Quite worth it right?
