Melaka

teaser

I just got back from a weekend getaway in Melaka with Jenn and Michael. It was fantabulously fun! Melaka has changed a lot since the last time I was there (a good 20 odd years ago). It’s now super tourist-y and there’s HEAPS of Singaporeans there. Almost half the cars we saw had Singaporean plates (both regular and “weekend car plates”).

rice balls

Nevertheless, I enjoyed myself. I remember being there when I was 8, but the details escape me so it was good to take photos and experience Melaka all over again. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site now and a lot of effort has been put into historical sites, which was fun for me. I did the eating expedition thing too, full post up tomorrow coz I’m damn tired and sleep deprived.

vodka

Jennifer kindly contributed to the sixthseal.com alcohol cabinet by giving me a bottle of Wyborowa vodka (from Poland).

She also bought some Melaka stuff for you guys (er…not everyone la, that’s impossible with the size of the company – just the team I’m working with) so I’ll be coming to work tomorrow bearing gifts. :)

kiss

Don’t you just love girls in uniform? ;)

  1. Wow nice! You guys DID make the trip :D Good that Jenn goes to destress :D
    Btw, you sure you’re not hawt for the horses and not the women in uniform? :p I mean, you are sixthseal you know. It’s like, the Stifflers :p

  2. YilingL: No, I meant GIRLS in uniform. The mounted police is a cop. ;)
    I just kissed the horse coz it has a very huge and soft nose and mouth. :)
    Nick Chhan: Yup, I was 100% serious about going to Melaka. It was fun, lots of stuff to do there. I was quite surprised actually, since the Melaka I remembered was when I was 8 years old (and in all honesty it was pretty crappy back then). It’s improved a lot though.
    Haha! I would have done that to the police, but I doubt she’ll be impressed. In fact, there’s a high probability she’ll haul me to jail, something I don’t want on a vacation. ;)

  3. Dude, you were saying something to the horsey…whatever you said…scare the shit of out of him! (zoomed in picture shows half a horse nut)

  4. That’s a mighty big shit that horse just dropped :D
    Hope you went to Hoe Kee for the ayam bola, don’t accept the pale imitations.
    Actually there’s a great chicken rice ball just next to your old condo too in Aman Suria :D

  5. I notice people in Malacca – as in the locals, they are really laid back. Like as if there’s no stress at all :P Shop owners and ppl there are very hospitable too. I love how they are not pushy when they try to sell you things even tho’ they know you’re a tourist!

  6. HB I readed you’re planing a trip to Shanghai that great. There online many apts for rent at low cost and near many places. My mom did for Beijing for 6mths. 120.USD a mth. with supermarket, restaurant,hairstylist, dry cleaner, ect. She can’t readed Chinese online have places names people can print out to showed cab drivers never had problem with it.

  7. That horseback officer in the last pic looks jealous that you managed to win the attention of his female counterpart. ;)

  8. It’s not so much you scared the shit out of horsey, perhaps your kiss motivated the poor thing to sheepishly let go a ton.
    The horse mounted by the male uniformed officer seemed relatively “clean” with no crap in the background. Perhaps jealous ;)
    Wow HB you do really have an “electrifying” personality.

  9. shaoweii: Yeah, it was a fun trip. :)
    maggot: Alas! I didn’t eat the cendol there. We were busy hitting the historical sites since we were only there for the weekend. :)
    e: I told him I’ll show him a good time. Apparently the horse wasn’t gay, so he shat himself. ;)
    TianChad: Oh you were at Melaka too? We hit A Farmosa, St Paul’s hill (the major attractions), Jonker St, and that gyro tower that’s the first in Malaysia.
    Cheryl: It’s a bit different from plain chicken rice. I like the balls, it fits nicely as a mouthful (maybe I just have a big mouth). ;)
    ShaolinTiger: Heh! I didn’t even notice the horseshit until I was told about it. Clumpy and grassy that.
    There’s a chicken rice ball in Aman Suria? What’s the place called? I still go there pretty often coz there’s nothing much to eat at night at my new place.
    chefmel: Yeah, true, but the place is also VERY crowded on weekends. Practically every third person or so at the tourist attractions had a dSLR slung around their neck. For our party of 3, everyone was lugging around a dSLR too. :)
    KY: Yeah, very good stuff indeed. I like the texture of the balls. The chilli sauce is good too. :)
    suanie: Ah, I was already back in KL then…reached Ampang at 7 or 8 pm and went back home to sleep. :)
    You’re from Batu Pahat right?
    Vickie: Hey, thanks for the tip! :)
    That is rather cheap for a month. I won’t be going anywhere near that long though, but the info is appreciated. Cheers! :)
    pm: Nope.
    Anthea: It’s not. It smells fine to me. ;)
    I like horses’ noses. The nostrils are HUGE and oh, so soft. :)
    Trey: LOL! I noticed him giving me the evil eye too. I wonder why he’s glaring at me. ;)
    annant: Oh, it’s your hometown! It’s a nice place, but why is it so hot? Everyone told me Melaka is hot but I didn’t believe it until I went there and experienced it myself. :)
    Tim: Haha! Perhaps the horse didn’t appreciate me molesting him. I was touching him all over. His lips, his face, and particularly his nostrils. It’s surprisingly soft and tender (and nice to touch). :)
    pm: Was it good? ;)
    eiling: Yup! I traveled around Peninsula when I was a kid but I haven’t been revisiting the places since then. I figured since I’m working in PJ now I might as well tour around the place since it’s close (compared to Sarawak) and all withing driving distance. :)

  10. HB, I know you aren’t really into this sorta thing anymore, and since a lot of your coworkers read this site you prob don’t wanna advertise this, but could you post more rehab anecdotes? I have been to rehab in the US and I wonder what forced 2 year rehab in Malaysia is like. I understand Malaysia has very tough drug laws. Not as tough as maybe Singapore or Thailand, but still very tough.
    Post more rehab anecdotes! If you can’t post them here, post them elsewhere and tell me where to look!

  11. Debra Fong: Heh! Sure, the next time I see you.
    Thanks for that! :)
    Shirley Snow: Next post, chicken rice balls! :)
    Mike: I will, it’ll go under FINE. :)
    If you’re interested, follow me on Twitter, not @sixthseal there’s another one called @castitas but you have to email me to tell me what your user name is so I can approve you. It’s protected. :)
    Jade Zheng: Kenot, I’m drinking it. ;)

  12. Darren: Heh! Yeah, the horse felt like letting go of a few clumps over there. ;)
    Aish: LOL! Yeah, I noticed that too. Damn funny. :)

  13. Lis: Lisa! You’re still working in Melaka? I haven’t seen you in ages! I lost my phone many times dy, don’t have your number anymore. Going back Sibu next CNY? I’ll be heading back. :)
