Celebrations are around the corner. Tomorrow is Hari Raya and i would like to wish all Muslims Selamat Hari Raya Puasa. Well, Deepavali is next and i am kind of excited and lots of stuff to do.

I will be taking part in the Navarathiri Poojas, special prayers for Durgai Amman, Mahalakshmi and Saraswathy, and i will be fasting from 30th Sep to 9 Oct. So too bad, i can only celebrate a belated b'day. Some of my friends are already grumbling but don't worry gals, my treat will be after the vridham ok.

After all these prayers, preparation for Deepavali starts. The norm thing we do every year, making 6 or 7 types of cookies, murukus and cakes. I have completed my shopping, the thing i love the most. But not the spring cleaning, still have time for that. ; ) I would like to highlight something about the shopping. I was quite upset that there were sale everywhere for Hari Raya festive but there isn't any for our festive. One of the Chinese salesgirl mentioned that the sale ends on 1st of Oct and thereafter, no sale is introduced so u better grab fast or else you have to pay more for the same quality. I bought a Voir Exchange pants for only RM22.17 instead of the original price at RM63.90. Just see the discounts and privileges the Bumiputras get. This is very upsetting, don't we share the same identity as 'Malaysians'? It just gets into my nerves and i feel like migrating to S'pore for good. At least, we are treated equally. Anyway, i don't wish to say anymore about this double standard treatment.

My bro-in-law's engagement is next on the row which will be held in Taiping on Nov 23. We must be there coz we couldn't attend his registration last week. So better give our attendance before my MIL makes noise......... hehee

Next will be my cousin's wedding in K.L. on Nov 29, but i am not sure whether i can make it coz i am lack of leave. My parents will be there though. Keeping my fingers crossed for any last minute changes.

Many photo updates are on the line up. So keep visiting my blog, guys.

I have been sleeping quite late this whole week and now i am having a very bad headache!! The reason being my hubby finishes work late at night for the past 2 or 3 days. Normally, i will wait for him to come back before I go to sleep and another reason is my neighbour's mum passed away a fortnight ago and they had the 16th day prayers yesterday. Had to attend that and came back before midnight. I took a shower and i went to wonderland after that. And this morning woke up at 5am as he had to leave for work early due to his assistant on MC. I am shack now!! I need some sleep to get over from it.

I am waiting for the clock to strike 5.00 so that i can broommmmmm. Take care guys,

Melaka Trip

Sorry for the late post guys. I've been wanting to post it for quite sometime, unfortunately i was busy with other stuffs and all.

It was a 3 days and 2 night stay at Melaka town. We left in the morning from J.B, it was a 2 1/2hrs journey. By the time we reached there it was lunch time. We headed to the A Famosa Chicken Rice Ball restaurant at Jonker Walk. We were amused to see 5 rice balls in a plate with roasted chicken. It didn't taste extraordinary. The rice was mashed and was shaped in small urandai. I prefer the normal type of rice. Anyway, we checked in and left our things in the hotel and got freshen up a bit and left for Jonker Walk. There were many antique shops and souvenier shops. Since it is a tourist spot, many items were over-priced. The T-shirts were god damn expensive and the quality was not so good as we can get better Tees in J.B. at a cheaper price. So some items were not worth buying. In just 2 hours, i managed to get a few pairs of earrings, bags and souveniers for my friends and some goodies. Had some western tea at a nearby outlet and headed to the hotel. My hubby had a quick nap while i took a shower.

Our next destination was to A Famosa, the hallmark of Melaka built by the Portuguese in 1511 as a fortress. We went for an hour trishaw ride around the town area which also passed by The Maritime Museum, a large ship that actually has a museum inside. It was constructed after the Portuguese ship called 'Flor De La Mar'. It was pleasant to the eyes, nice yellow lighting and the breeze was amazing. The trishaw man briefly showed us around and told us the baba culture as well. What next, our tummy were making noise already, headed for dinner at a nearby Chinese food court.

The next morning, we had breakfast at the hotel's cafe and headed to Dataran Pahlawan and Mahkota Parade, both are shopping centres and as usual, shop around and had lunch at Ole Sayang, a famous Peranakan Restaurant. The food was mouthwatering and i was seen with a bloated stomach thereafter, Lol.....

Our next destination was Kg Morten Village, an antique house built without nails, can u imagine it??? I was lost for words. The owner of the house showed us around and allowed us to take some shots. (refer to the last two photos in 4th row) Back to the hotel after that and got ready for The River Cruise. A 45mins river cruise touring the Malay village, which has a clear view of the ancient houses at Kg Morten and the fishing boats. After alighting the boat, we drove to the Portuguese Settlement for dinner. **Highly recommended by one of my hubby's colleague. We ordered Chili Crab, Butter Prawns, Oven-baked fish and Mixed Vegetable. I nearly cried finishing the items. It sucks!!! It tasted very raw and didn't had any aroma at all. I nearly felt like killing his colleague who recommended us to this shop called De Costa's. None of the above items was good. The dinner spoiled the day. My hubby was being very nice and offered to go for a Foot reflexology nearby and both of us had a mild massage. It was heaven.

Before we left Melaka, we visited the zoo and said hi to all our friends living there. Despite some of the bad experiences we had, it was indeed a nice trip and we enjoyed ourselves.
