Our famous food trip, Makan-Makan Melaka was having another round recently. It was tailor made for a group of 4 in one car. We purposely make a day trip just for food. To name a few, there are Satay Celup, Chicken Rice Ball, Durian Cendol, Yam Rice and Cockles.
Jom Makan-Makan @ Melaka (2nd Edition)
16 September 2010
A tiring day trip that everyone of us has to bear. We departed at 6.30am and back at 9.30pm, with almost 15 hours of food hunting. Total of 7 sessions made off for a whole day. Consider a breakthrough for us so far. Glad to be part of it.
With only four of us that day, we were certainly able to fit into sharing the whole travel and food expenses. A budget trip as we called it. The first edition last year had provoked the second edition as we named it. We have GPS Navigator as road helper to help us.
Our first stop was nothing than a regular breakfast in Seremban town. Yes, the famous Hakka Mee had gone in our way so early. I personally eaten this many times, just promote a bit here. A place where senior citizens gathered.
A price per bowl has increase from RM3.00 to RM3.30 (small), RM3.50 to RM3.70 (medium) and RM3.80 to RM4.00 (big) compare to last year.
A typical increase because of ingredients are getting more expensive?
Zoo Melaka is the second biggest zoo in Malaysia. This major zoological park is located opposite Botanikal Ayer Keroh and along the Lebuh Ayer Keroh route. More than 1200 animals of 215 species can be found at the Zoo Melaka.
Month of August was my busiest month of the year. Almost every week, I went out for trip. Zoo Melaka is one of my target. This place is never been hard to locate if you come from Ayer Keroh direction. Go straight after pay the toll and look forward the signboard given.
Car park is NOT FREE and I paid RM2 for carpark.
Architecture Museum of Malaysia is one of the museum found in Malacca. In fact, there are many museums along the road, but due to time constraint I only managed to visit this museum. It’s located at one of the building built during the Dutch administration of Malacca.

Entrance fee is FREE. So, why not take a peek inside?
Inside the building, we can see a lot of architecture not only found in Malacca but the whole Malaysia. Again, there are many related to philosophy of architecture and cultural related art.
“We invite you to check our threshold and bathe in the sight of our beautifully maintained flower garden. Admire our traditional Malay architecture and venture into our house to view priceless antique and bridal exhibits” – Welcome to Kampung Cantik, Pengkalan Batu.
The words coated on the board is really make us feel welcoming. This place actually located nearby Batu Berendam. I saw some buses stop by the road side and I thought it must be one of the tourist spot. I quickly park on the road side and saw an artful miniature traditional house.

This is a common place for non-Malaysian to understand and know our culture and the surrounding. I seek to drop by to see what’s so special about the place. Luckily no entrance fees charged as I follow the group together getting into the house. They thought I’m part of them…haha.
If you wonder how was the palace of Sultan Melaka look like, Melaka Sultanate Palace is the right place to visit. It’s not the real palace but a replica that located at the foot of St Paul’s Hill. According to the historical documents, the palace was built during Sultan Mansur Syah’s era, who ruled from 1456 – 1477.
