Go Malacca Day 2

The very next morning, we went to eat pork soup and yam rice! It might sound ordinary but, it’s really, superbly delicious! This shop is quite famous I heard. Even Astro’s Ah Xian also came to this shop.


The name of the shop that sells the best pork soup!


Hungry people waiting for an available table!


We loving it!




The friendly boss preparing our breakfast…

After breakfast, we went to walk along Jonker Street. The weather was super hot but, it was fun walking and stopping by the shops to buy things. The whole afternoon was all about Jonker and shopping. Not much eating yet. Btw, we also visited the oldest temple in Malacca. But some say in the whole West Malaysia or probably Malaysia.

Super excited!


At the oldest temple here…


Somewhere behind the temple…


Admiring the door.. Lol!

We went to this shop which sells handmade shoes. I guess this is quite a famous shop coz even Director Lee Ang visited this shop. Interesting…




Star Wars anyone? Haha…

After all the shopping, we started to chant the shopaholic’s motto: My will is strong, my wallet is closed, I don’t want to shop! Haha… Guess what? It really worked! At least on Sarah…


          We even tried to ignore the ‘2nd piece RM1’ promotion!

We wanted to visit some Baba Nyonya house so, we continued to walk around until we reach the 8 Heeren Street. We stopped by a model conservation project by Badan Warisan Malaysia. It’s an old Dutch-influenced house which BWM conserved as an exhibition to the public. Seeing this very interesting, we all decided to go in. There’s this old man working there. He explained every single detail about the style of the Dutch houses. It was really a good experience knowing a little bit about the architecture of the house.


A short talk about the house =)


Pretty maid with her Dutch boss ;)

After that, we went to somewhere familiar. It was the house Little Nyonya was filmed! We wanted to go in to see but, it was a private museum and we have to pay RM8 per person just to go in. And no photography too! Well, we still went for it coz’ it’s an experience we all want to have.


Baba Nyonya house!


It seems like I was over-excited!

The Baba Nyonya house is super grand! It’s definitely a rich family living there last time. Btw, I only spotted 3 parts of the house that were filmed; the front part of the house, front room in the 1st episode and the ancestral room where Ju Xiang was beaten by the grandmother. And the rest was maybe filmed on set or at other houses.

After the tour around the Baba Nyonya house, we sat down to have some snacks. Jun Mei ordered ‘pai tee’!!! I’ve seen it before on TV but I didn’t know it tasted so good! We also had some nyonya kueh. Later, we walked to eat some popiah and rojak. Then, we went back to shower and rest before starting the night activities!


Lovely ‘pai tee’!
