So the road trip (when I first mentioned it, I thought we were going by car, but we ended up going by bus instead – the phrase stuck ‘cos it’s snappy! hehe) I’ve been hinting since forever at is actually an overnight trip to Malacca! The last time I went there has been over a year ago.
I made the trip with Sushi, who was craving for chicken rice balls. She sure loves her balls… As for me, I remembered being hopelessly in love with Jonker Street – and the balls too, among the other glorious food I tasted in my last trip – so of course I jumped at the chance. As the night market on Jonker Street only opens during the weekend, we stayed a night at Heeren Inn on Saturday and returned Sunday afternoon.
We took the bus from Puduraya, a bus hub in the heart of Kuala Lumpur (nearby Chinatown, actually). It took us exactly two hours to reach Malacca. Sushi and I talked the entire bus trip there and pretty much annoyed the rest of the passengers who were all asleep. A guy who sat in front us every now and then irritably shushed us, even though we were speaking in undertones. Oh well, we can’t help it if everybody else was sleeping that we sounded quite loud in the silence!
