Cheap 2D1N Malacca Getaway!!!

Some some last year I had a 2D1N getaway to Malacca!

We bought some voucher from some deal site. It was about S$78 per person if I did not remmeber wrongly. Includes coach from Singapore to Malacca with one night hotel stay. We had private check-in. There is a total of 6 of us, so three rooms in total. We were upgarded  to club room hor! cool right. However, one of the room was at the other side, means not near to the other two rooms. Nevermind la, the room so big, all six can gather in one room also, only when we wanna sleep, go back to our respective rooms lo.

so we all met around 0700hrs at Golden Mile for the coach to Malacca. I forgot to take pictures on board the bus, but it was pretty comfy la. Like those luxury one lo, something like 16 seater?  Then got upper and lower deck, like Airbus 380, haha.

We reach our hotel - Hotel Equatorial, around 1300hrs? Cannot remember la. but I know I am hungry already, which means its lunch time. So we check-in at the club room concierge at don't know which level. Immediately we ran into our rooms to check it out. It was great. Huge. The toilet is huge too. I did take picture, but don't know where is it now. Haha.

So here is the bedroom, where the bed is, duh~

This is my room mate for the night, Cat.

Spend sometime taking pictures, Cat and Ah Ya. 

More and more join our quest of camwhore! Me, Ah Ya, Cat and Ah Hua.

Super hungry la, so we head out for lunch! Cat's colleague was super nice, she came and fetch us to lunch lo. Because the car can only take 4 of us, the rest waited in the hotel. While she make the second trip for the rest of us. Super nice right.

So in Malacca, the famous thing is the chicken rice. There is queue everywhere. They were saying the one that look old and not so nice one actually very nice, so we pick this one lo.

Yes, we had to queue under the blazing hot sun!

We finally managed to get in after don't know how long. See what the heat caused - brain damaged to Cat!

If you are wondering where exctly is the place we ate at, look out for this dragon, it's there.

Here are the chicken rice balls.

 If you ask me about how I fell about the food, I would say "ok lo".. lolz.. really! I don't find it delicious lei. BUT that is just me. My friend say nice, maybe because we queued for sometime, so everything also nice lo. Haha.

After lunch, its dessert time!! Saw this dessert shop got queue so thought "should be not bad la". Again, the queue induces this thought. Yes, so we queued again. This time round was quicker though.

All discussing what to eat and YW is posing! Super "you xin ji" lo. Like always photo ready. Haha.

The interior is like those olden days kinda decoration. Cool huh.

"Great Wall of China" with Mao Zhe Dong

While waiting for our desserts. So happy waiting lo, this Ah Hua.

YW: xxxxx
Ah Hua: Huh...

The lady at the corner is the super nice colleague of Cat who drove us. Yummy desserts!!

Super old school stuff

All the bills of different currency

Singapore S$5 bills - UNCUT! Don't know real or counterfeit. Oops.

One of Cat's friend recommended this durian puff, say super nice. Eh, NO! Not nice at all lo.

After lunch and dessert, it's walking the street/shopping/photo taking time.

Temple in between the shop houses.

Many of the shop also sells old school stuff. Like this children tricycle.

Cool Jeep

The work of a sniper! Well, they spotted me though.

Another old school tricycle for kids.

Peace out!!!

Being Shot. And it's unglam one lo! That's why not posting it.

Then got this group of bikers, vroom vroom and honk honk. Super loud but cool la.


Shopping time. The girls bought shorts. And I shot this stairs.

And she die die also have to "chap ji ka"

More shoppings - Earings.

It is cheap too, like three pairs for 12RM or something like that.

Then we pass by this door way, it says tea house.

Look kinda scary, later go in all die. Imagine, they kill people and they use human blood to make Red Tea!! urh... JUST IMAGINE!

We exit Jonker Street and head opposite to the historical site.

This is her camera bag for Instax

Potato Tornado~~ Woohooo~~~

Instax of the girls

Instax of us, gentlemen~

Dan wanted to poo in public, so I said I will snipe him. He decided otherwise.

World Heritage Site. All posing for my shot. I am always not in the picture one ~

At this place, you see all sorts trishaw. I mean, it's the same. Just the decoration. Some even equiped with speakers + sub woofers hor~ Don't play play.

On the way to higher ground, we saw this "train" and thought why not just take a group picture.

I am always so nice to take picture for all right? Yes, I am SUPER NICE!

Test shot la

Yes, this one. The colour not very nice hor. Aiya, don't know how to use lightroom la.

Another group shot with the building.

You wondering who took for us? haha...

Took with self-timer and tripod la! DUH ~

The outside

The interior - with us

The stone cravings on the left.

The stone cravings on the right.

And the middle.

Not sure what are they looking at, just find it weird and I shot it.

Last shot inside before we exit

Then there is this tomb outside. Something like Dumbledore's tomb lei.. In Harry Potter! Haha

Train that got de-commissioned.

Can never imagine the kinda transport people used to take.

We then head back to Jonker Street for the night market.

They sell all sorta stuff, like pasar malam.


Carrot cake


Pubs. This is Geographer. Sounds nice huhz.

Even got stage for the older generation to sing hor. And got this uncle super cute, he just dance and dance to the song. 

Back to hotel. So Tired.

Did our last min shopping/makan at this plcae for CAKES!

Love this sofa la, super nice for gathering lo.

The setting is nice.

NAme of the shop: Nadeje

It's like kueh lapis, but this is cake. I know kueh lapis also cake, What I meant is those creamy cake la! I think the orginal is the best. The rest I feel abit "gelat" lei, at first very nice, then a few more mouth, "ok I had enuf".

It nice. Worth a try if you are going to Malacca.

Overall, I think each of us only spend around S$150? for this 2D1N getaway (including the vucher we bought). We really enjoyed ourselves!! Looking forward to the next 2D1N getaway. Seems like we are planning to go Genting. Cat wants to win some money for her renovation. Haha.
