The destination this time is Malacca. I don't think we can really call it a proper vacation because it was very brief (Read: last minute) and we didn't even stay at the hotel.
Another thing is we didn't carry any suitcase. Haniss packed her stuff in an old Converse bowling bag, Shikin in her Carolina Herrera weekender and I packed some light-weight tees, an old denim shorts and a pair of flip-flops in my canvas- tote to achieve that "tourist-y" look.
It was our little weekend getaway.
And man, we had a lot of fun...
Leen was there. She took us to Jonker Walk, where we spent almost the entire night walking from one stall to another. I snapped a photo of the famous Geographer Cafe with some old folk dancing in a circle to the beat of retro songs. I think they were all drunk. We ended at Leen's (she stays with her parents) and she gave us her room. Thanks Mambo=) Ooh! She paid for dinner too. Thanks.
We went to the other side of Malacca to visit Hanis's grandmother, whom we call Nenek. She lives alone in her big house because her Indonesian maid eloped with a local guy. Well...well...
I listened to her speak and reminisce the good old days... She reminded me of my late grandmother whom I love so much.
Back to town after that and straight to the A'Famosa for some face-numbing photo sessions. We took a lot of great photographs and I selected a few to be uploaded here. So, enjoy=)
Next trip? We're thinking island somewhere!
