I just got back from an awesome Melaka trip with a friend and 7 other new friends which I came to know from the trip. It made me see Melaka in a different perspective, got to know a little more of its history despite being there many times already. Visited places which if I were to go myself, I wouldn’t have thought about going or knew it existed.
I enjoyed the tour in the Cheng Ho Cultural Museum. The lady did her job well in explaining the events, objects and happenings relating to Cheng Ho. Visited a model conservation project at Heeren Street. Bought a novel “Malacca – A Romance” from the same model shophouse. Jonker Street. Had laksa at Calanthe Art Cafe which also serves 13 states’ coffee of Malaysia. I didn’t try their coffee there because I was too tired to risk not having enough sleep for another night but bought a box of coffee with 13 states’coffee sachet to try at home..so I’ll have my little coffee journey around the 13 states whenever I feel like it.
Bought 2 souvenir magnets depicting the Peranakan/Baba-Nyonya culture at Malaqa Museum. Had chicken rice ball at Chung Wah. Portuguese-style baked fish at Portuguese Settlement was good. The mille crepe at Nadeje Cake House, Dataran Pahlawan was nice. Went to the Baboon House and walked around the garden towards the back of the shop and saw a very pretty dog. The kind that exudes charm and kindness from its eyes, telling you that you can share your problems and it is all ears. At least that’s how I felt..
Cheng Hoon Teng temple. Masjid Kling from the outside. Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple (oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia) from the outside…and we stayed just opposite it at Cheng Ho Guest House.
Managed to clear my mind over the weekend and not think about work. But now that I’m back. The stress is back so before I take on the world again, I wanted to just write this post. I think half of my stress is self-inflicted as I tend to think far beyond what is necessary. I just think that it’s better to think long term sometimes so that I’m aware of the different possibilities if it happens but then again, it may not even reach that far for certain things so I may just be worrying over nothing. There are too much ambiguities and uncertainties floating around my mind and I don’t like uncertainties.
I saw a t-shirt while walking around little shops in Melaka that says…
Things To Do Today
1. Get up
3. Go back to bed
I’d like to start surviving now.
