Earlier on, i shared the post on travelling to Julie’s biscuit factory. Now, this post i will take you to what to eat for dinner, breakfast and lunch at Melacca. And if you only have a saturday and sunday. What to do during this little time you have.
If you want a extra short trip to spend overseas, the best thing is you can go melacca. You will need to book a coach preferrably 8am to start of with. why coach ? Because , you can just sleep and it is last troublesome than flight .
5 reasons why it is good to travel to Melacca : 
1. You get to eat nonya food
2. You get to go to Jonker street . You get to eat street food, buy good deal tanktop and buy malaysia munchie snacks
3. You get to go to visit St. Paul Cathedral
4. You get to eat Chicken Rice Ball 🙂

the good thing about nonya food is, there is spicy dishes as well as dish like otah which is my favourite!
20140823_194539
This is very authethic and simple, tofu with fried onion and vegetables.

Otah stick, taste like otah fishcake, can it by itself or with rice

Chendol is a must-have at Malacca

Food in Malaysia is valued for money. The rate is good and when eating at restaurant there I feel good when I can order what I want to eat without thinking of how much it will cost. 🙂 definitely good for a short getaway. however, probably the toilet wasn’t so cool. room for improvement. 🙂
After a feast, time to go to have a walk or maybe a second round of street food. the beautiful lights of jonker street. Just like a little macau to me 🙂 do you think so?

Alright, next up, we are going to visit St. Paul Cathedral

Do you know why the statue does not have one hand?

20140824_104631

A marble statue of St. Francis Xavier, built in 1953, stands within the complex commemorating Malaysia’s best-known missionary. Stories say that when Xavier was to be canonized in 1614 the Vatican demanded the right arm (this was the arm Francis used to bless his converts) from the body. When it was cut off, blood appeared to drip, 6o-odd years after his death; when the marble statue was erected in 1952, on the morning after its consecration a large casuarina tree fell on it severing its right arm.

The ruins of St. Paul’s Church are at the summit of St. Paul’s Hill. Built on the site of the last Malaccan sultan’s istana (palace), it was constructed by Portuguese fidalgo (nobleman) captain, Duarte Coelho, in gratitude to the Virgin Mary for saving his life during a storm at sea.

Roofless and covered in ferns, it was originally called the Nossa Senhora da Annunciada (Our Lady of the Annunciation). Though it has been in ruins for more than 150 years, it is a beautiful, breezy sanctuary (reached after a steep flight of stairs) set near the remains of A’ Famosa fort.
