Here in P.J.

We reached PJ this morning. So, we will be here until the 25th. Going up to Genting Highland on the 19th and 20th. Have to get use to the weather here again, thus far it's very hot. Didn't manage to go to the Jonker street pasar malam. With a picky hubby who doesn't eat Hainanese chicken (white chicken), we have to settle for AFormosa Chicken Rice Balls on Jonker Street. Since over here, we had the choice of siew yoke and baked chicken. Nilmandra, you were right, nothing to shout about. I prefer the fluffy chicken rice anytime. Took a walk along Jonker street, but I couldn't find any famous spicy shrimp hiong piah? Also, the prices there were for tourist, all very expensive. Managed to stop at Jonker Dessert 88 for some durian ice cendol and Gula Melaka ice cendol plus the Nyonya Laksa. When we returned to the car, we found a $30 parking ticket on our window wiper. Aiya!!! We didn't know we have to buy ticket and just happy that we found a parking space. Luckily we met someone who was very helpful and helped us to bargain and cut the fine to $15. Managed to stop by at Jing Yuan Biscuit and Bakery and bought some mini tau sar piah and hiong piah to bring it here. Had to miss the satay celok because it only opened at night and it was hard to drive all over here again at night to eat. It was about 30 minutes drive from the place we stayed to Melaka, so after the Safari, swimming in the swimming pool, got shower, we were all dead tired.
