visiting malacca: episode V: damn loooong drama....I know!

After a long and tired day of walking around Malacca town, I was so hot, sweaty and irritated. Yes, I get annoyed easily if I am in that situation when I desperately need a bath...a diva, no?

Anyways, Ah Len has voiced out how much she wanted to go the jacuzzi that morning when we just got up (Coz the girls did not get a chance to soaked in the jacuzzi yesterday). So, those of us who brought a swimsuit - Laushu, WY, Len and I went to try the jacuzzi. Luckily, this time around there were no mat sallehs (although yesterday's ones were not bad-looking!). Since Suz C and Mel did not bring any swimsuits, they just soaked their feets. Val, on the other hand, went scouting with Ben to catch more photos.

The boys joined us later, all except Jino, who of coz, wants to sleep. We dubbed him Snow White, all because there were 7 girls and someone called us the 7 dwarves. So, what are the 7 dwarves if there is no Snow White? Besides, Jino is the one who sleeps a lot, so who better to be given the title? Hmm...I wonder who is his prince though? The one that kisses Snow White to wake her up? O.o

(Clockwise L-R): Laushu shivering - I like how her nails matched her swimsuit. LOL; Ah Len's teeth was chattering the whole time inside the jacuzzi - She calls it JA-KU-TI - So cute; Ben & Val joined us later - Ben wanted to jump inside with some help from Val; Ben posing to jump inside the jacuzzi

Of course, Ben did not jump. He and Val did not go into the jacuzzi. Later some mat sallehs came to joined us in the jacuzzi. They introduced themselves as Australians and New Zealanders.

I was the first to leave the jacuzzi, unfortch. It was not hot at all, and I felt really cold inside. Besides, I was awfully tired that I just wanted to bathe and rest. We took turns going back to our room to bathe and changed since our room is damn cold - We left the air-con on the whole time we were outside.

After my bath, I went back up to the rooftop to soaked my feet with Suz C and Mel and to snap more photos, of coz!

WY, Suz C and Mel looking into the sunset horizon - I lurrrvvee this pic!

We enjoyed the beautiful sunset whilst on the rooftop. The icing on the cake was the birds that flew across the sunset sky. They provide such a beautiful backdrop that the photos I took of them were one of the greatest photos I have ever taken! Highlight of my trip here.

The most beautiful and lovely pics I have ever taken

Now I know why Ben loves photography so much. It just gives a sense of awe and satisfaction looking at the great pics that a simple digital camera can take;)

Of course, besides all these great scenic shots, I also took some goofy and *sweat* moments.

(Clockwise L-R): pH pretending to be Superman - He made me laughed so much with his poses that the pics came out blurry (I could not hold the camera straight!); Laushu was taking a bath when we heard a 'clunk' and a scream - It turns out that the railing dropped when she was taking a bath! - LOL, and we were all so worried when we heard her scream!; WY doing a 'mermaid' pose and pH *sweat* his macho guy pose

Note: The "mermaid" pose came about when back in Kampar, the 4 of us saw a rerun episode of "America's Next Top Model" - I don't remember which cycle it was but they were in Thailand doing a photo shoot for a suntan lotion and they all had to turned upside down for a mermaid shot - The cycle that Danielle won (although I like Joanie the most!)

So, after we all got ready, we went to look for places to have our dinner. We just could not decide where to go - went to a few restaurants to check them out but none were delicious-looking or seem special enough. Finally, we all decided to walk to Dataran Pahlawan Megamall to see what they had to offered.

The shopping mall was decked out in Christmas decor. When we went inside, there was actually a performance going on. They sang Christmas Carols!

The girls wanted to go shopping since the sales were going on but because everyone was hungry, we decided to eat first. After going around and around in the shopping mall and still no place deemed suitable, we moved outside.
Almost all the shops were closed at that time - Malacca shuts down pretty early! But finally, majority decided on a place called "Wok and Pan" - for East meets West cuisine.

(Clockwise L-R): The place where we had dinner; Laushu with her soup; Phon had Lamb Shank - Looks so yummy-licious!; My meal - Colonial Chicken Chop - tastes really good but very huge portion

WY and KT also 'belanja' us oyster omelette. Thanks ya!!

This is the shop opposite the place where we ate. A boutique selling streetwear items. The grafitti on the walls are so damn cool wei!

(Clockwise L-R): Ben won hands-down for the best clothing item in this trip. His T-shirt of sperm meeting the ovum is simply priceless. Rest assured, it is a HIV awareness T- shirt; Ben, Jino and PhakHoe - I think Jino's shirt is nice - I like the little shipwreck design at the bottom part of the T-shirt

After our (very full!) dinner, we did not know where to go. All we know is that the night is still young! Us girls wanted to shop at Dataran Pahlawan (where we went previously) but it was already closed. Sad:(

So, instead, we took pics at the display windows. Hahaha;D

(Clockwise L-R): The girls copied the mannequins of Padini; Suz C looking through the window of MNG; Posing for ESPRIT;P

LOL. Those were some priceless moments - Snapping pics in front of a closed shopping mall! Shows how crazy Kl people are. Hahaha. We garnered some weird looks from passer-bys. LOL. But it was so much fun! Ben's camera has more of these funny pics - Hope I get them soon!

Just like last night, we wanted to enjoy some alcohol and fun. But there were not any bars around. If there were, they were all closed. So, feeling disappointed but still full of energy, we just walked around. We passed by our hotel at one time and saw that their bar is still open. So, we all decided to hang out at the hotel bistro.

The drinking gang - Glad no one was drunk - Guess we all know our limits, no?

There was a Filipino guy performing songs on his guitar onstage but the crowd did not pay much attention to him. Feeling sorry, after each of his songs, we clapped loudly and shouted. LOL. Everyone must be thinking who are these hooligans? Suddenly coming in and creating noise? Anyways, he sang lots of old and nostalgic songs, which suited Ben and pH to a tee. They sang along to almost all the songs that the singer performed.

I like pH's beer yesterday so much that I decided to share a bucket of Heineken beers with Laushu, WY and pH. PH calls it the Chicks' Beer. It has a mild taste, I think, which I like. Nothing too strong or bitter for me, unless vodka mixed with coke/sprite, which I had at Phon's New Year Eve's party. It was awesomely cool.

(Clockwise L-R): Our bucket of Heineken beers; Jino had banana split ice-cream. LOL; Suz C had "Sex On The Beach" O.o; The different types of beer that night - KT had Carlsberg, Ben had Guinness Stout and my Heineken

(Clockwise L-R): Ben singing along to the music while posing for his Guinness Stout - That drink is srong weii!; Laushu, Ben and pH; Jino licking ice-cream of his spoon in his "hamsap"look; I only had one beer that night. Not a good drinker:P

WY trying to imitate Hanson's pose that he did back in Kampar. LOL

I was not drunk at all, of coz, but KT exclaimed how red my cheeks were when we were going back to our rooms. Hehe:)
