A trip to the most historical city in Malaysia ----->> Melaka. The trip was on ..wait a minute..let me check on my calendar..ahaks..on the 4th and 5th July 2009. I know it’s a bit of an outdated news ..:D
What I like most about this trip is both of us did a last minute plan. All these time, we have planned to have a long vacation to Langkawi Island since the very last time we visited the place was during our primary school and everybody was talking about the new Langkawi, with its modern sophisticated look. I crazily want to go there as I have missed the trip on early this year when my whole bunch of JB family went there. I suggested to hubby and he agreed but the problem is being a doctor you have to be prepared to sacrifice your time and that means your holiday too!!
Hence, when there was oblige wedding ceremony to attend which take place in Umbai, Melaka, he ecstatically recommended us to take this chance and stay for a night in Melaka. I was thrilled to this idea indeed! Notwithstanding the fact that we would stay only for a night, it is better off than staying listlessly in our house during weekend.
So after helping here and there and not forgetting to be the instant wedding assistant photographer, we said goodbye to everyone and shoot to the city of Melaka to book a hotel. Have I mentioned that we have not made any hotel reservation yet before making the decision to spend our weekend in Melaka??? Yes, the answer is NO and that was the most brilliant plan that I could think of. (It means sarcastic in a polite manner) The result; we had to go to EVERY hotels ever existed in Melaka. Money had to put aside as priority went to finding a place to stay a night.
Arrrghhh..Melaka seems like a Las Vegas city during weekend, crowded with loads of people from around the world. Hubby suggested if there’s no room at all we could stay at his grandmother’s house situated in Klebang, Melaka which is 30 minutes driving from the city. Meanwhile, deeply in my heart I wanted to spend the best of our time together with no interruption from familiar faces. Hence finally after a tiring but yet amazing hotel exploration around Melaka we managed to find one room at Orchid Hotel situated in the heart of that city. There’s only one room left for us; ‘studio suite’. With no hesitation we agreed upon the gift rewarded to us after a tired walk. (Yes, we did walk since it’s faster than driving).
So the rest are left untold but the pictures could maybe explain everything. (The truth is I am feeling a bit dizzy to continue writing.) Hope you will enjoy watching us posing like school students enjoying their very first school trip.
P/s: I should bring along my book on our next vacation to jolt down hubby’s never ending explanation on history, places etc, but definitely I learned a lot on our history from this trip and it made me appreciate more of the freedom that we gain today:-) .
