We have spent the past 2 days hanging out in the peaceful port town of Melacca full of history and tasty food.
My favourite being the “Hainanese Chicken Rice Balls”.
Balls of rice cooked/soaked/steamed?? in chicken stock – apparently the tastier ones are made with real chicken stock.
We stayed at the coolest place on our journey yet – 15RM a night at the “Shirah’s Guesthouse” run by 2 great guys Steven and Zaki.
Rice ball. Tasty food which Mr.Teale can not have enough of. To be honest I have to control myself too.
Cruising around the historic city. So many old house and buildings.
Outside the Museum of Melaka.
Some Arty store down town China town.
Another nice ‘Wall’ for Adam.
Having a break.
Having some local noodle dish. Big dish 4 RM each. Another delicious dish.
Taking off for some more local food.
Adam, Zaki and Steven. Mr. Teale trying to convince these guys to buy a mac.
Shirah’s Guest house.. Best people best Atmosphere.
Leaving KL was like lost in a maze. So we just head south. We must did 5 Uturns that morning. But eventually we got to the suburbs at about dawn. Saw some Chinese folks doing Tai-Chi.
stop and have some breakfast at a Indian restaurant. Asking for directions. I realise that we it,s not so far away to Singapore(400 km or so).
A lot less traffic when we were out of KL. And the weather was just right.
An Ocean of Palm tree Plantation. Hill over hill over hill… It was terrible. It was hot as hell. The smell was awful. Imagine that all these hills use to be forest with an eco-system. Nothing but the palm trees that these guys(below) planted. So I wonder if these palm trees could survive if there’s no one to take care of them? Anyway we tried to escape it asap. Eventually as we got closer to the coast the forest came back again giving an idea what this place use to be.
Port Dickson, Teluk-pantai touristy place for the Malaysian.
We tried to find a hotel. Kept asking and kept going. Until there was no hotels left. So we had to go back a few km.
Total KM: 102km
We started the day with Chinese food on the corner of ChinaTown. The food was excellent, I had something similar to thai’s ??????? dish, Mr Teale had some Pad Mee, Not so expensive 5-6RM but a massive dish.
And then we head off to The Petronas Twin Towers, by The Rapid KL. 1.60 Ringgits from China Town station to KLCC.
as soon as we got there adam needed to take a piss, but there was no toilets around. So he took it somewhere no one can see..
There you go. The twin towers.. and that is not my snot. i think that is a lens flare. Anyway Adam manage to get us free tickets to the tower bridge, but at 6 o’clock. So we had a bit of time to kill.
Walking along the garden following people around and suddenly we found ourselves in a PC fair. Adam was suffocating so we need to leave the fair.
KL Tower. 38 Ranggit to go to the top… No fuckin way.
The Monorail back to China Town for Dinner. Packed!
As we were walking back to the place we had breakfast. We notice this very very small Vegetarian restaurant. So we went in there instead. very good food I must say, We both had a couple of dishes.
some KL graffiti.
it’s time for The Twin Towers. Got there just in time. Because we didn’t expected the evening KL Rapid traffic.
Petronas Elevator buttons.
Not a bad view.
Not on purpose, My finger was numb..
trying to compete with the Twins.
China Town night time.
Walking back to the hotel from Petronas towers, saw a bit of the Night life here. Saw a nice quote on the wall in the Backpacker Hotel. Early night. Tomorrow head off at dawn.
I can not believe that it’s only 2 days left. We are so not prepared but I guess we’ll do the preparing a long the way o_o Making a list of What we should bring, I’m gonna forget something for sure!
anyway, 2 DAYS man!
Our bikes at finito!
