Fun Drive to Historical Malacca

 

In our frequent trips to Malacca, one can expect to shop and indulge in the Peranakan cuisine which Malacca is famous for, besides the joy of travelling together.

A group of HomeTeamNS Auto Adventure Club (AAC) members assembled at Bukit Batok Clubhouse on 14 March (Sat) 2015,  for yet another road trip, organised by its Chairman, Mr. Low Lai Choon and his group of experienced committee members. Unlike the former, this weekend trip was packed with excitement and fun!

The convoy was flagged off by Mr. Wilfred Yoong, the HomeTeamNS Director of Operations at 6.30am. Their first stop was at Gelang Patah where participants had their sumptuous breakfast.

The second stop was at this new Peranakan restaurant called “Aunty Lee”. Everyone had a hearty meal heading into the city where they played the game “Break the Code”. Simliar to Singapore’s “Escape Room” concept, our participants were ushered into allocated rooms for a time of mystery solving and code breaking. It was challenging, fun, and indeed a brain teaser!

After checking into King’s Green Hotel, the participants were soon led to their pre-dinner destination to sample the famous Satay Celup nearby, at Ban Lee Siang and McQuek’s. The main dinner destination was at a Portuguese seafood centre, spread of crabs.

The next day, the group checked out at 10am after breakfast, and they visited the famous Aunty Koh’s cendol, Klebang coconut shake, Baba Charlie for its nonya kuehs and the all-important milk crepe cake (better known as the “thousand-layered cake”) that they bought at the packed Nadeja café. The trip concluded with shopping at AEON before leaving for home.

Though it had been short weekend getaway, the trip had left indelible memories.
