Melaka Trip During Raya – 2 Days 1 Night (Day 1)

/, Lifestyle, Travel/Melaka Trip During Raya – 2 Days 1 Night (Day 1)

This year hari raya I was having Life Group (LG) retreat with my group member to Melaka.

We depart about 10am from Petaling Jaya to Melaka took about 2 hours. At the middle of the journey there was a minor accident that cause us delay about 20minutes. I was asking WHY JAM? Waze did not show any accident report. But once it nearly reach the accident point, it just said “Accident Reported”, I was like …zzz

Once we reached in Melaka we cannot wait to taste the local food. Our first destination was Pork Satay!

Melaka Pork & Chicken Satay – Xiang Ji Satay House (Jonker Satay)

Xiang Ji Satay House

30 sticks of Satay @ Xiang Ji Satay House

 

Personally I prefer chicken satay compare to pork satay. Chicken satay meat is more soft compare pork satay. One stick is cost RM0.80, we had ordered about 30 stick to try out.

Recommend Dish: Chicken Satay

This is the "trademark" of this WTM shop. Personally I ok ok for the taste. But my local friends love it so much! They mixed well until the whole bowl become RED WTM.

After we had the WanTanMee, it’s the time for Jonker Street.  FIRST THING FIRST, DO NOT SIMPLY PARK!

Summons in Jonker Street. Yes! It's 1st day of Raya, they still faithfully do their duty. Don't simply park or you will receive your "gift"

We did one way walk to the Jonker street. Great dancing performance that I did not enjoy very much. LoL… The street is so clouded and jam. So beware your own belonging and bring one portable fan.

At the end or beginning of the street depend you start from which side. There is a hot selling coconut stall.

Get a nice cold drink in such a hot place! Coconut milk shake with ice-cream is a good choice!

After Jonker Street walk, we went to a coffee shop. By the way, I am not a coffee lover. Just for a knowledge and visit. LOL…

Calanthe Art Cafe – Malaysia 13 States’ Coffees

Painting - Calanthe Art Cafe - Malaysia 13 States' Coffees

We enjoyed talking and fellowship in this place. This is a definitely a good place to hangout together. Environment is good and also hard to find seat. If you come with a big gang, it is hard to arrange everyone in one table.

That’s all for the 1st day. Next day we will enjoy more Melaka food. Stay tune!
