It's not easy to travel with the little girl because she violently objects to being constrained in any way and hence her car seat is not exactly her best friend.But we survived the trip there and I feel very proud of us. Daddy for getting us there safely and me for singlehandedly entertaining the little girl and even getting her to sleep about an hour on our way there.
Long story short, we went, we saw, we conquered. we bought what we wanted and ate more than what was good for us. But then when you're in Malacca.. who really cares what is good for us.. just EAT!!!!
This trip, we discover this glorious cake from Yeast Pastry House..and it is really simply heavenly. Soft flufy sponge with the most delicious cold cream filling that doesn't make you feel sick. Helps that it comes with a crisp sweet crust top. We had 2 each before dinner but I craved for more. Absolutely delicious. Be still my heart.

We also discovered that Donald and Lily will be relocated and we happen to be there on their very last day of operation at the charming little eating house that has become their trademark.
Some pictures from our first visit there in 2010..
The new location is not really accessible and there are no other places of interest around that area. It also looked more commercialized. Looking at it from the outside, the eating place has lost the charm. I'm not sure if it was a good business decision for them to move.
We also went to eat the Jonker88 where I found the little girl dancing with her daddy halfway through my bowl of Assam Nonya Laksa. Hello Nonya Laksa.. I miss you.
The night we arrived, our close friends brought us to this seafood place called crystal bay but I think it can't beat our 2010 experience at Alai Seafood... And I'm posting photos to make up for missing Alai this trip (T.T). Everything you are going to see next tasted so good, I've been thinking about them since 2010...Especially the butter prawns!
And finally... The last meal we had at Jane's place..Major love! Especially her mom's Nonya dumplings.!
I've gotta wait another year before we'll be back in Malacca for a much anticipated wedding but we'll back!
