Backdated post - 24 April 2011..
We made a daytrip to Malacca, the Tan family. A very rare occasion to holiday with Father, so, this is an occasion to treasure.
Big Brother was back visiting with his family. This trip, he's a little bit more adventurous, took the kids to Sunway Lagoon and climbed up Batu Caves with his friend. (Shame !!! I've never been to Batu Caves and it's just a short drive from our home. shame ! shame ! A to-do in 2011 for us)
We left KL early Sunday morning, with an empty tummy. First stop was the chicken rice balls at Jalan Tun Sri Lanang.
Adults congregation :
Not so adult (yet, not so kiddo) congregation of the cousins :
Next, Jonker's Street. Got a decent car park opposite the to-be opened boutique hotel - Casa del Rio Melaka. Uhh.... I think the hotel is opened now that my post is 2 months late.
Next stop : Makan again.. Cendol at Donalds and Lily's. I think father had a shock, his children and grandchildren can really eat !!
Walking down Jonker's Street, sightseeing and souvenir shopping. Amber had the best view, this spoilt brat was on Papa's shoulder's.
Hats, umbrellas, sunnies and sunblocks, we were ready to tackle Jonker's Street
Quaint and interesting places ...
We were ready to tackle St Paul's Hill to check out the ruins of St Paul's Church, Christchurch and A Famosa fort. Father and hubs rested at San Shu Gong. There's no way father's gonna walk up the hill and down. Too strenuos and hot for him. Amber insisted on coming along and I know she cannot complete the whole walking journey of going up the hill to the ruins and coming down at A Famosa fort. Oh well !!!
Lots of energy running up the hill... but her battery went flat short after.. :(
Statue of St Francis Xavier in front of St Paul's Church. This is a-must for holiday keepsakes.
The cousins ..
Her lovely cheh-cheh cousins from Melbourne
They left for Krabi and Singapore before flying back to Ozzieland the following week.
Looking forward to have you here again
(or better still, if hubs can take a week off, we'll be at your place soon !!!.. )
