I love to travel, be it to local destinations or foreign countries, it somehow cheers me up and gives me fresh ideas for my photography. Recently I headed to Malacca (the historical state) for a short break with some of my girlfriends – Farina, Suganthi & Jayanthi. We had such a beautiful time there from visiting tourist attractions such as Jonker Street to visiting the Portuguese Settlement.
We also had a ball of a time eating our way..from the ever famous chicken rice ball, Portuguese baked fish to trying out sweet desserts such as nyonya kuihs (cakes) and chendol made from gula Malacca (palm sugar).
Thanks for the lovely time gals! We should do this more often!
Malacca is such a beautiful place with such amazing locations for pre-wedding and portraits. If you want to have your photographs taken here, please drop me an email as I’m always looking for an excuse to head back to Malacca!

The ever famous Chicken Rice Ball in Malacca
Some of the gurls opted to have the traditional chicken rice which was equally good!

A forgotten trade…Remember eating this when you were a kid?
Chendol with Malacca’s Palm Sugar – Suganthi & I were quite dissapointed that we didn’t get a chance to eat the Durian chendol as we were busy shopping…but this was equally good!
Trishaw rides are a norm in Malacca, a great way to rest your tired legs after a long walk
Malacca is a shopping haven!
A variety of nyonya cakes are available here
