-insert short musical interlude here-
I got a little bored of Japan and a few people I asked were dead tired of sakura, so here’s a little post on my trip to Malacca earlier this year. I’ve been there way too many times – it’s everyone’s default stop on the way back for KL – and it’s not my favourite place because I got bedbug bites during my last visit. Nasty. I’ve always found the night market rather nostalgic, but during the day, it’s too hot to deal with.
Didn’t bring a camera so all photos are taken with my phone, which doesn’t have the best quality!!
The reason why we went there was because the Parents signed up for this Skyhawk Nature Run, but the Pa couldn’t make it. And so I tagged along, but instead of running, I had an extended breakfast and sat around reading Tolstoy. Funstuff.
After walking around the whole day with no interest in doing what tourists do, we ended up in…a shopping mall. For the air conditioning. And I ate some herbal jelly – I remember eating it as a child and somehow it is strangely tasty.
I’ll be back with Shinjuku Gyōen! Been terribly busy juggling work/social life/settling my future, but next week is going to be exciting. Sealing my future and Italian food on Tuesday, visiting the new heritage centre on Wednesday (so fun!!) and off to the Philippines for a work trip from Thursday to Saturday. Exciting things coming!!!
