So.....as soon as we reached there, dad and mum wanted to try this Curry laksa in Kota Laksamana. I have been there and tried it thanks to the last SG Retreat. So, I acted as tour guide!!! :)
Ordered the pongteh chicken, curry chicken, 4 bowls of curry laksa, 1 rojak and 4 bowls of cendol!
I was TERRIBLY hungry so as soon as the pongteh chicken arrived, I wolfed it down! Verdict...it was rather oily and rather salty for my taste!
Surprisingly I must say I enjoyed the rojak better (compared to the last time I had it). But I reckon it was coz I was still hungry (opppsss!!!).
Everyone else had a bowl of curry laksa. I didn't even try it coz (sorry!) I don't like curry laksa AT ALL !
Verdict from my dad and mum : Not good! They say they have had better !
At night hubby and I took some time off to head down to Jonker Street - objective to buy some Soya Noodles and Pineapple Tarts. The deco for CNY was really nice....rather scary along the streets around Jonker coz it was just lotsa red lanterns. It reminded me of prostitution streets actually! Have to try this Soya Mee and see how good/yummy it is!
BUT the highlight of my trip was THIS !!! (Thanks to PN for telling me about it!)
This is the broucher from the shop. It is called Nadeje and is located in Melaka Raya, Jalan PM4. The specialty there is Mille Crepe, a type of French pastry. 'Mille' ('mil') actually means a thousand implying that there are thousands of crepes in the cake!
We ordered 2 varieties, the Rum and Raisin (right side) and the original (left side).
Let me tell you....the texture of this cake is OUT OF THIS WORLD! If you actually dive your fork/spoon/knife (whatever) right through the entire depth of the cake and bite into it from top to bottom, your teeth actually cuts through layer by layer, and in your mind, there is a registration that you are bitting into layer 1, layer 2...etc.
Oh gosh....just thinking about it now! Admitedly however, the taste is not an explosion or anything that you really remember by. It is ONLY the texture that leaves you SURPRISED! I didn't know that it would be that GREAT! :)
Around the corner from the Nadeje Shop, I was plesantly surprised to see this Graffiti on the wall!
I thought the government would have found it and painted it off!!! But there is talent here, I am so sure! And there is talent in htis little fella as well.....
He can 'complain' really loud now when we don't give him attention OR when he is tired OR when he just wants a little cuddle and pat from anyone!
