Day 2: Malacca

Tesco Malacca
Today was our designated shopping day. We went to Tesco hypermart and bought lots of stuff. The baby's milk was 30% cheaper in Malaysia and we bought 4 cans. I also bought many US made food items like baby food and cereal bars. They were also much cheaper here than in Singapore. Another must buy items were contact lenses, I bought enough supply to last me for half a year.

Shopping at Tesco

Restoran Ole Sayang
After Tesco, we had our lunch at this Peranakan Restaurant. It was very crowded during lunch hour. Hmm...the food must be good. :)

Waiting for food....

Itik Tim (Duck with salted vegetable soup)

Chicken Pongteh

Mixed vegetables in Nyonya style

Otak Otak

Ice Chendol

The food wasn't fantastic, it had a funny taste that we weren't used to. We only liked the otak otak and the ice chendol. What a pity :(

Medan Ikan Bakar at Muara Sungai Duyung
In the evening we drove about 4 km out of Malacca to a fishing village and had our seafood dinner here. Ironically, our best meal was actually outside of Malacca hehehe..

Stir fry vegetables

0.5 kg fried prawns with garlic

We had a 1 kg seabass that was done in two ways. I love their fried fish in three flavour sauce (i.e. sweet, sour, and spicy). It was very very nice.

Total bill was about SGD 30 for 3 adults.

too bad that some of the food did not taste properly! But, at least, it looks good on the photos!:)

Maybe we are not used to the taste. Peranakan style was supposed to be the local specialty food. :)
