My small and humble post dedicated to the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, whose disappearance on 8th of March 2014 shook the world.
May the crew and passengers always be under the protection of the Almighty.

Weekend at Malacca: Part II

Check out the previous post for day one of our weekend at Malacca!

Day Two

Sleeping at The Neem was pure bliss. Until about 6 am, we all slept like babies. It was only at about 7 am when people had started their day outside when we heard voices and the neighbour's dogs barking. We were up for breakfast, which ends at 10 am, and had the opportunity to meet the chalet's owners, a brother and sister who were also nice enough to cook us eggs and sausages. We also met a Dutch couple who had checked-in later the previous day and we planning to have another 5 friends over. After breakfast we signed a guestbook and returned to our rooms to get ready and check out.

We went to the Stadthuys first and walked around, finally visiting the Museum of Architecture mostly for the air-conditioning. We came across the Church of Saint Paul so we decided to climb up since we were already there. The climb to the top of the hill was really tiring (;_・) but the view was just priceless ヽ( ★ω★)ノ And of course, the plus side to the sunny weather was that all our photos looked amazing! There were more people on top of the hill though and some booths selling stuff like drinks, art sketches and even colorful plastic China-made toys I wouldn't know what to do with at a historic site.....

Afterwards we were really tired (at least I was) and it was already 2pm so we had to make our journey home anyway. We almost missed out on the famous Klebang coconut shake, but I insisted and we made it to a jam-packed food court decorated with tons of red Walls banners. We had nasi lemak, bihun goreng and some kuih and of course, our coconut shakes. It was icy, sweet from the vanilla ice cream and has very small  but a lot of coconut flesh in it  ヽ(;^o^ヽ)

As for our journey back, the road was pretty clear as the holiday crowd was already gone. We dropped by Senawang and reach KL about 7pm that night.

Expenses for today (not sure if I remember everything I spent though):
