Travelogue: Melaka

It has been a while since I went out for a trip with my friends. Despite all the emotions conflicts along our trip - 'cause you know we were going out with girls ๐Ÿ–‘, I can say that this trip was a success! From Friday afternoon to Sunday night, there won't be any single moment I don't cherish.

On our first day, we didn't do much. We just went out to eat roti terbang and asam pedas claypot for our dinner and had supper at Justberrys Dessert House, Melaka and then we rest for a long day of tomorrow.

I've been to Melaka few times with my family but as far as I remember, never once in my memory, my dad brings me to the A'famosa fort. So, my friends took me to the A'famosa to satisfy my craving. Although some say that there is nothing inside the A'famosa, it is just a building - Apparently, that is what my dad told me when I asked him to take me to A'famosa. But it wasn't nothing for me. We took a lot of photos and videos there.

Even though some say that Afamosa is just a small part of a mere fortress, I believe it does have their own sentimental value especially to those who love history.

I know this is weird but I can't help relating this huge ship to Titanic ๐Ÿ˜น. So welcome to the Maritime Museum of Malacca. That huge ship was said as a replica of Portuguese ship named Flor de la Mar. This ship was used to carry loot plundered from Malacca and sank off at the coast of Malacca when it was on its way back to Portugal. After spending one night here, I heard that there is The Pirate Adventure in Malacca and it is also one of the attractions in Malacca, unfortunately, we didn't get chance to go there as it is open at 7 pm.

What is Malacca without Pantai Klebang? We went to the Pantai Klebang Beachfront in the evening to watch the sunset and went again the next afternoon (yes, AFTERNOON) to the Pantai Klebang Sand Dunes.

Because she really wants to take this kind of pose so bad. So lemme help
As for the Pantai Klebang Sand Dunes, it is popular for a perfect photography shoot, be it an amateur or professional. We thought we were crazy enough to have a photoshoot at the sort of; desert in the afternoon, but as soon as we arrived there, lol there were bunches of people as crazy as we are. We took photos and even shot an 'Ayat-ayat Cinta' music video.

You can watch our first music video on my instagram's highlight. HAHA

Casababa Gallery

Actually, our first intention is going to the Casababa Museum, but on our way to the museum, we found this gallery and asked what is the difference between the gallery and the museum to the person in charge here. With the price RM 1 less to the museum, and we can try on their cloth and pictures are allowed so we decided to come here instead. After 20 minutes of commentary on Casababa, we put the Nyonya Clothes on and took pictures.

This is the only proper picture we have. Others are sooo ๐Ÿ™…. But for those who want to do documentary videos here especially for Ethnic and TITAS assignment, I'd love to recommend here.

As for the food, Malacca has so many foods that go viral on the internet. We tried a lot of restaurants here. Asam Pedas Claypot, Roti Terbang, JustBerry's Dessert House, Roti Canai Kayu Arang Melaka, Roti Canai Kak Ro, Kuih Keria Melaka, Coconut Shake Pantai Klebang and Mee Besen. But if you ask for my recommendation, I'd love to say I love the Mee Besen the most! And actually I even took the picture of them but when I searched it back in my gallery, it is nowhere to be found.

So that is the wrap up the trip of me and my bawangs. Will write more in future. Later.

How to go to the sand dunes though? My friends and I went there halfway because there doesn't seem to have proper road and the route was unclear so we ended the journey. we were so disappointed ;(

Ah really? Maybe because the sand dunes is about 20-25 mins from parking lots and the route, yeah, quite hard to find but if you just follow the direction given by the waze, you'll eventually reach the destination. :)
