~ Melaka Trip (19th-20th Dec) - Day 2 ~

We had breakfast at a coffee shop (5mins walk from the hotel) which is where we strolled last night by the Melaka river. The other kuehs tasted ok but I find the Zhui Kueh (水粿) a bit too soft and bland. The sauce is also too salty for my liking. On the contrary, the wanton noodles is nice!

The rest of the day is spent shopping at Sutera Mall and KSL City. KSL City is a rather new shopping mall located in Johor Bahru City Centre whereas Sutera Mall is in Taman Sutera Utama. Comparing to both malls, I somehow prefer Sutera which has more to offer.

The best attraction we experienced is the "Pasar Malam" outside KSL City. There is a LONG stretch of stalls along the road side. Definitely not the same you will find in Singapore. The Pasar Malam here is huge and you can find so much more! There are stalls selling leafy vegetables, raw pork, fresh fish, food stalls selling duck, beancurb, zi char, kuehs etc and non-food stalls selling shoes, clothing, accessories, toys and many more. The entire road is packed with people!

Lucky for us, we came here on the right time, right day as it is only open on Monday evening! We had 豆花 and it is so tasty cos they put black sugar which is sweeter. Hubby also bought some 烧肉 and we eat along the way.

We would probably have settled our dinner at the pasar malam if we did not plan to dine at "Restoran Ah Meng". :)

That ends our 2D1N trip to Melaka. :)

You didn't try the famous chicken rice?

I tried the chicken rice balls during our visit to Melaka a few years ago. We still prefer the normal chicken rice. ^_^
