Malacca (Melaka)

Day trip to Malacca Jonker Walk. (N2 11.725 E102 14.873)

Reached there around noon, have to fill up our stomach. Found the Famous Chicken Rice Ball in Melaka - Chung Wah Kopitiam (Restaurant) (N2 11.698 E102 14.907)

In Malacca, the chicken is served with rice balls rather than a bowl of rice, commonly known as Chicken rice balls. The rice is shaped into golf ball-sized orbs and served alongside the chopped chicken. This dish is eaten the same way as the regular version, making sure to get a portion of chicken, some rice and the soy and chili condiment into each mouthful. Older chefs argue that the rice was originally shaped into balls because it needed to be kept warm from the time it was cooked (often earlier in the day) until mealtime. The rice balls when stored in wooden containers, apparently stayed warm for a longer time. The other theory is that the rice balls were more portable and were easier for labourers working on plantations to transport from home. Today, rice balls are appreciated more as a novelty than anything else. - From Wikipedia.

As you can see the queue, waited for almost 45 mins. to get a table.......

The chicken rice was delicious and special compare with ordinary type.......and the price also reasonable especially at the tourist attraction area.

Journey started - Jonker Walk

"Special Car" commonly see .....
They call "Beca" (Trishaw)

I love the name of this shop......

Suddenly I stepped into the "Time Machine"

Chinese Temple.....

The Monkey God Statue

Spot the 'Speed Dome Camera', it's a must for Tourist Area......

But the bird say : "You can't see me !!"

After few hours walk around, stopped at my favourite place "Geographer Cafe" (N2 11.807 E102 14.783)

Well decorated......

I LOVE this cozy cafe very much! It's worth for a visit!
Finish the beer on the table and also finish my trip to Jonker Walk.
