What happens when you put 3 (Malaysian) girls in a car on a 2 hours road trip down south? Hello Alfonso de Albuquerque! They cross states of the peninsula just to conquer the historical town famous for its food, Malacca. Perfect weather, classic rock songs on BFM, insanely comfortable basics (a must during food hunt) – we’re on a serious mission in search of the best chicken rice balls (failed), authentic Nyonya laksa, rich milky cendol, Portuguese influenced pastries, and childhood candies!
Being the natural genius that women are, we instantly burn gained calories while the golden sun sets by doing touristic vintage shopping, trying on funky shades, admiring handcrafted souvenirs, sipping on refreshing cocktails at the Geographer, and falling asleep on rattan chairs throughout a relaxing massage session. Oh and have you ever queued (minimum of 2 hours) just to try the satay along Lorong Bukit Cina? If you never, may i say, that you’re not missing out anything in life. Take my word for it.
