On a whim we decided we needed to see a little more of Malaysia than just KL, so we jumped on a bus to Melaka. An absolutely beautiful place, about 2 hours drive by bus from Kuala Lumpur.
In Melaka, the influence of the Portugese, Dutch and British is still plain to see. Quaint little shops and multi-coloured trishaws are all over the place... Of course, the trishaws have sub-woofers installed somewhere amongst the floral decorations - and they play Beyonce and the like - which we found quite amusing!! 😊
Little Shop House - Jonker StreetJonker Street is where most of the original houses still remain, but now have been converted into shops or restaurants to cater to the large number of tourists...
Hainanese Chicken Rice BallsWe all love our Hainanese Chicken Rice, but in Melaka they make it the authentic Hainanese way... the rice is made into little balls... and it tastes slightly different to the normal rice we get with it. YUM! I was wondering how long I could talk about Malaysia without mentioning food.... :)
