Hello Howard

Fri 4th November 2011

Meet Howard, he’s our latest hostel owner and he’s a legend. Tonight he took us to the night market and showed us all the yummy street food treats to devour.

Howard is a great hostel owner. So much energy and always introducing people who arrive. Howard’s Foyer was an awesome hostel!

Photo with the locals

Fri 4th November 2011

Melacca is off the backpacker trail, so it doesn’t get to see many western tourists. This was made very apparent when a group of Malaysian girls ran up to us begging for a photograph – weird!

Matt says...

This has happened a few times while travelling through SE Asia, every so often we get called over by some random people asking to take our photograph. Very strange!

Here’s me chilling with my girls. The word ‘giant’ springs to mind.

 

Angelic church square

The fountain square is very elegant at night. It looks completely different when lit up with red lights against the red walls of the buildings.

Melacca at night is gorgeous. All the buildings are lit up with pretty coloured lights to add to the atmosphere.

 

Picturesque night river

Wed 2nd November 2011

Tonight was the first night it hasn’t rained since we’ve been in Melacca so a great opportunity to take some photos.

I love how stunning everything in Melacca is at night. They decorate the streets with shining oriental lanterns too which gives it a delightful charm.

 

Chicken rice balls

Wed 2nd November 2011

One of Melacca’s signiture foods and local delicacies is Chicken rice balls. We tried it today for lunch and it was yummy!

Matt

Matt says...

Chicken rice balls; it’s just like chicken and rice, only the rice is in the shape of a ball. If you cannot tell already I’m bored of chicken and rice :)

Okay so we tried it and I liked it, I am not sure Matt agreed. I think it was a bit bland for him.
