Melaka 2014

Been wanting to revisit Melaka for quite some time now. Finally I get to give Melaka a go on 29th September. We (as in my family and I) choose a Monday to beat the crowd and tourist. Whilst my growing up years to Melaka were more about the attractions, the trip this time is all about the glorious food of Melaka.

In total we visited 8 eateries in the time span of 8 hours and had cendol at 3 different shops (we didn’t plan for this) while my dog is vacationing away at a home in PJ. Haha

Our Breakfast @ 486 Baba Low, Melaka
First thing we did upon reaching Melaka is to have breakfast at 486 Baba Low near to Jalan Tengkera. Not in picture is the glorious cendol. Do click the link to read more about 486 Baba Low. In fact, whenever you see a link, click it to read more about the eatery because I blogged more details about them in my food blog.

Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple @ Jenjarom, Selangor

Few weeks back I went with the family to Fo Guang Shan – Dong Zen Temple at Jenjarom. I’m sure some of you must have heard about Fo Guang Shan as this temple attract lots of visitors during Chinese New Year for their beautiful lanterns. I never visited this temple during CNY because I hate crowds. 😛

We spent a leisurely 1 hour there with only about 4-5 groups of people. Basically we own that place! Hahaha

Hong Kong Day 2: Star Ferry, Man Mo Temple & Gage Street Market

Do check out Hong Kong Day 1: Airport Express, Thematic Lantern Exhibition & Heritage 1881 before reading my day 2 adventure.

On day 2, the fog continue to smoother Victoria Harbour. I have expected it. This is the kind of ‘weather’ you get during January/February in Hong Kong. At 10am, we walked to Star Ferry pier, Tsim Sha Tsui which is just few minutes from YMCA.
