Melaka Calling



They say visiting Melaka is not complete without taking 45 minutes river cruise down the Melaka river, and guess I did not complete my visit there. My first stop was St Paul’s church.  The ruins of St Paul’s church stand on the summit of St Paul’s hill. It was originally a chapel built by a Portuguese Sea Captain and later the Dutch renamed it as St Paul church.




Another stop was Jonker Street, a popular spot where you can find clothes, fashion accessories and definitely souvenirs and the best place to hunt and bargain for antiques.  We had the amazing lunch in one shop house restaurant at Jonker Street, of course the Melaka delectable Nonya cuisine. My favorite is Otak Otak , a fish cake made with fish fillet, a lot of spices and my favorite coconut milk. 






 After lunch, we went for a walk around the river and visited both the Middleburg Bastion and the maritime museum located along Melaka River. Just as we were exhausted by the heat and the walk, we did cancel our plan to visit Menara Taming Sari to enjoy the panoramic views of Melaka. On our way back to KL, our kind driver brought us to this shop, and I have to admit, I can’t stop eating just one vegetable siew pow, lol!!!

ပန္းေတြနဲ႔ ေဝေနတဲ႔ ဆိုက္ကားကေတာ႕ လွခ်က္
စီးရရင္ စိတ္ခ်မ္းသာဖို႔ေကာင္းမယ္ေနာ္
ျမစ္ထဲမွာ အေပ်ာ္စီးေလွလည္းစီးခ်င္ေသးတယ္ ..
ရန္ကုန္မွာ သေဘၤာအေပ်ာ္စီးတုန္းက အရသာ ခုထိ အမွတ္ရေနေသးတယ္

The most advisable restaurant for foreign travelers is Paranakan Restaurant where varieties of Baba Nyonya cuisines and delicacies available (and tourist friendly). In fact, it is not 100% true "visiting Melaka is not complete without a river cruise" but if you miss to walk "Jonker Street", you cannt say that you have been to Melaka :))

တို႕ကေရေၾကာက္ေတာ့ river cruise မစီးခဲ့ဘူးေခ်ာေရ။ သူငယ္ခ်င္းတစ္ေယာက္ကဆို အသက္ၾကီးလာလို႕ပိုေၾကာက္ေနတာလားလို႕ ေမးေသးတယ္။

အဲဒိပန္းဆိုက္ကားလဲမစီးခဲ့ဘူးမမေရ။ သြားတာကေတာ့ ကားသမားနဲ႕မွသုံးေယာက္ထဲမမ။ ကားရပ္စရာရွာတာ သုံးေလးပတ္ ပတ္ေနရတာနဲ႕စိတ္ေတာ့ ေတာ္ေတာ္ေမာသြားတယ္။

ကိုAATO ေရ စားေတာ့စားခဲ့တာ ဘယ္ဆိုင္လဲမမွတ္မိခဲ့ဘူး။ Jonker Street ကိုၾကိဳက္တယ္။

တို႕ေတာ့ သန္႕ေနတာျမင္တာနဲ႕ ေနခ်င္စိတ္ပါေပါက္ေနတာေစာေရ။

မမေရႊဇင္ေရ လာပါ ၾကည့္ပါ အျမဲေက်းဇူးတင္ေနပါတယ္။

တို႕လဲ Church အေဟာင္းၾကီးကိုၾကိဳက္တယ္ မိုးေငြ႕ေလး။

ေရသာေၾကာက္တာတခါတေလ သိပ္ခ်မ္းသာခ်င္ျပီး cruise line နဲ႕ခရီးသြားၾကည့္ခ်င္တယ္ ကိုညီလင္းသစ္ေရ။

ညီမေလးစန္းထြန္းရဲ့ ေရးထားတာက ပိုေပ်ာ္စရာေကာင္းတယ္။

ညီမေလးမီးမီးငယ္ေရ လာလည္တာေက်းဇူးပါေနာ္။
