Hehe.. ok.. as I was saying, I stayed there for 3 days. And on Friday itself which was my last day there I visited the most places. After finishing our "Yu Kiao", we went back to Malacca Central and took a bus straight down to the "Red House". The red house is one of the main attractions of Malacca as it was one of the buildings that were built by the Portuguese when they conquered Malacca. It was some kinda fort or something. Because of this building they manage to succeed in conquering Malacca. They were too strong for Malacca troops! They were nice and comfy in their own little building! =( That was way back in 1511. Somewhere there... I gave my History knowledge back to my teacher. Malacca was conquered by few major powers then, first it was the Portuguese, then the Dutch and finally British. That's why Malacca is known as Bandar Bersejarah ("town of
Ok... enough of history lesson. Back to food.
We had to hurry up and proceed to our next destination as Cody had class later. Even with our stomach full with Yu Kiao we still needed to visit this other place. See how greedy we are? Or rather how good the food over here is. Haha...
Anyway right opposite the red house, over the bridge lays the world's greatest chicken rice. What is so amazing about it u ask. Well... The chicken rice is made of balls! Wahaha... it's true.
Perfect spherical things.
The shop over here was one of the pioneering bunch. According to my parents, an old man use to ride his bike around Malacca selling chicken ball rice during my parents’ time. Now it's no more existent though. What we have now is a comfortable restaurant to sit in.
It’s one of the main tourist attraction in Malacca now. During holidays, you'll see a long queue lining outside the shop. That's the reason why multiple 'chicken ball rice shops' are mushroom-ing around Malacca now. And it's mighty important to know the right one coz not all are nice. We tried another shop once and it was... BLUEh...
The shop that i went was Ho Kee chicken rice balls!
Look they even have someone to endorse their product! Advertisers! *shakes head*
You can see that they are definitely making money! They just renovated their shop!
Anyway... I'm not a lover of chicken rice but chicken ball rice... Yummy...!!! =)
They serve the best asam fish too.. Sour and spicy. Just they way I like it!
Before we went back to the University. We had to have desert first. Yup... my stomach stretches endlessly. Hehe...
Right opposite the red house, there's this funny looking stalls made of fruits. They're seriously super cute!
They have Mr.Bean shop too.. It was close though...
And one of them, the purple one which is known as the "maggis" fruit, (I dunno what u call it in English. Anyone knows?) sells 'Cendol'. Cendol is a very famous kind of desert made from brown sugar (we call it gula melaka), long green slimy stuff which is soft and delicious, red beans, and lots of crush ice. It's not easy to find good ones in
See..! Do u still have this in ur country? This old green thing that produces crush ice!
So if u have nice Cendol in
Anyway... enough for today. Shall have the next installment some other day. Stay tuned!
