Whereas I was more interested in a bowl of ice kacang!
Old-school and retro-looking stores paddling food and drinks brought much nostalgia. There was even a singing competition going on at an open-air stage. The whole place was still quite crowded even though it was close to midnight. Melaka is happening!
After exploring the bazaar, we headed back to the hotel for a good night's rest.
We woke up bright and early and ready to explore a bit more of Melaka town. First, we explored the hotel since we checked in late and didn't really have a good look.
Balcony on the loft level.
I was so intrigued by this retro telephone which is still working.
We skipped the complimentary breakfast offered by the hotel as the spread was quite ordinary. Hubby wanted some Assam Laksa, so we headed to Jonker Dessert, an eatery we passed by the night before and also recommended by a colleague previously.
I had a bowl of fish dumpling noodle soup. It was passable. Probably I didn't like this type of yellow noodles.
After visiting a few attractions, we headed back towards Jonker Street. Weather was rather hot and humid so we couldn't resist a bowl of refreshing dessert.
Couldn't remember what this was, I think something like Gula Melaka Ice.
The chicken was not bad, meat quite chewy, could it be kampung chicken?
After lunch, it was still quite early to head home. I didn't want to go home! We decided to hunt for durians at Segamat since it was near the durian season. Exited the North South Highway at Tangkak. After driving towards the direction of Segamat for about 15-20 mins, we found a roadside durian stall amidst a palm plantation. It was like set up in the middle of nowhere. Found out from the very honest looking durian stall owner that it was too early to go Segamat, not the season yet; and he strongly recommended his Tangkak durians from his grandfather's plantation.
