After breakfast the kids went splashing in the saltwater infinity pool while I took Isabel for a walk to the adjacent Mahkota Parade.
I wanted to check out the much-blogged-about Nadeje which is famed for its millie crepe. Some say it's really good whereas others say it's overated. There was a long long queue even for takeaway - too much trouble for a piece of cake.
But guess what I found in Mahkota Parade......Patisfrance!!!
For lunch, we walked across the road to Dataran Pahlawan....Johnny's Restaurant for steamboat.
In the evening, we took quite a long walk all the way to the river for a cruise. Along the way, I pointed out the very historical church to Joseph.
Even Isabel was having fun!
We had daytime view on the ride out and night time view coming back. I must say that the Malacca Tourism has done a great job with the river. It's really clean and pleasant.
After the cruise, we walked back all the way to the hotel and went past it to D'Tandoori House, located 2 roads away, for dinner.
My kids' eating-sleeping-schedule went out the window. We had lunch at 2pm and dinner at 9pm. I'm very thankful they are so adaptable and willing to just eat, drink and sleep whenever we tell them to. Joseph had no complains with food and went along with ikan bakar, steamboat, tandoori and nyonya.
Monday morning - it was another delicious leisurely breakfast at Chatterz....
...after which Joseph wanted to go swimming again but Joy wanted to go shopping for bling bling.
So Daalin took Joe swimming while I took the girls shopping. Joy is very easily-contented. She picked out a RM2-ring and a RM2-hairband, after I told her the tiara was very expensive. She could even tell me, "Expensive...so just see only ok? Don't buy."
Back at the hotel, I fed the girls before we checked out at 1pm and then headed to a Nyonya restaurant for lunch (with the gang).
By the time we finished lunch, it was almost 4pm. It took us another hour just to get out of Malacca town and on to the highway.
Traffic was decent, except for a stretch before Senawang. We got home at about 6.30pm. Holidays are great....but there's nothing like coming home to your own bed in your own cosy home.
I'm so thankful to be a part of this wonderful company and boss I work for. Really the best boss.....even my Joseph said so!
