The Best Mee Rebus in Malacca

Destination: Malacca, Malaysia

Last few weeks, hubby brought me to the historical city of Malacca. He was very excited to let me enjoy the most delicious Mee Rebus he ever tasted.

At first, we were lost one's way, we went round and round all the way in Malacca city ;P So hubby stopped near by the Malacca Tourism Center to ask for direction, and I was just sitting in the car.

From inside the car I could see Menara Taming Sari (Taming Sari Tower). See below:

Visitors or tourists can enjoy Malacca City's scenery on top of that tower. I was attracted seeing the circle deck revolve slowly from bottom to the top of the tower. Besides that I saw a double decker bus beside the tower. I guess it is Malacca tourism bus!

Later on hubby continued his mission for the Mee Rebus and at last we managed to get there! It is located at Jalan Ujung Pasir and opposite the Portugis settlement.

Taa daa, below is the place which my hubby was talking about.
According to my hubby's friend, this local stall is very famous and had been broadcasted in few television programs.

Above is the Mee Rebus

The taste is very special. It's hard for me to explain... It has a bit of curry savour and add with some green chillie, but it is not so fiery.

The other one is what they call it Rojak, as in below picture. It has a mixture or egg, bean sprouts, bean curd, cucumber, a kind of turnip (Pachyrhizus erosus) and sour gravy.
Who ever know about this special Mee Rebus, feel free to share your experience eating it! :)

Honeymoon in Bali Island

Destination: Bali Island, Indonesia

Bali Island was my honeymoon destination, which located in the Indian Ocean in the center of the Indonesian archipelago. Bali is well know throughout the world with its unique Hindu cultural, the splendor of its ritual arts, and the charm of its friendly people.

My hubby and I travelled from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to Denpasar International Airport by Qatar Airways.

Our arrival was warmly welcomed by the tour guide who excitedly calling for my hubby's name with his banner.

Right: That is our plane to Denpasar.

We chose to stay at Aston Sun Island Villas & Spa Seminyak, as it has a great location at the main shopping street of Jalan Raya Seminyak. Although at the road side, this villas are set well back from the road, so there’s no street noise at all, make our honeymoon peaceful ever!

After check-in at the lobby, with guided by a staff, we walked through the footpath to the villa. All the way to the villa, everybody greeted us charmingly! They even welcomed us with a cute honeymoon cake.

Each villa has LCD TV and a DVD player. Not only that, it is equipped with a self-contained kitchen, who knows you want to cook a special meal...

Besides that, it has en-suite bathrooms with a separate bath tub and showers. There are two showers, which you can have it in the shower room itself or you may enjoy the exotic outdoor shower, whereby you could feel the fresh air and see the blue skies above, as it is roofless :)

The toiletries are all complete, together with their spa product like bath salt. So you won't have to worry about anything. We just went there and enjoy our private time together! In fact, we travelled there with two empty bags! ;)

Every morning, our breakfast is ready on the table. We can choose either Western Breakfast or Bali Breakfast menu. For the omelette or scramble egg, the cook prepared it in our villa's kitchen.

Above: The Western Breakfast menu.

Sometimes we choose to enjoy breakfast at the coffee house.
Most places in Bali, will say that they provide 'Halal' food. I guest most of them think 'halal' food is any food except pork and liqueur. But for Muslims, even it is cook without pork, the food cannot be cooked in the same wok that used to cook pork or cannot be kept together in the refrigerator. So everytime we go to a restaurant, we have to go through the menu to see if they serve pork or not. I can say that most restaurants in Bali serve pork and make me feel very tired searching for 'halal' restaurant. I should have bring lots of Maggie mee and bread. Huhuhu~
