A simple lunch at Malacca..

We were in Malacca for the weekend, at our condo beside the sea.. It is part of the Merak Melaka Beach Resort... Our apartment is facing the sea and with the wind so strong it would be just difficult to open the door facing the sea, but because of the fresh air that blow in... I did open the door on the balcony and it was indeed refreshing...As usual it is humid and had that salty taste and smell ...We seem to have one thing in common with our friends who now live in Bali, Indonesia...They too live beside the sea...This sea actually somehow connected with the sea at Bali....Anyway it did not rain now, not like the last time we were here...It was raining then with strong wave bashing the shore, this time the weather was fine but as usual late evening the wind that blows from the sea seem to be real strong but the wave was not as strong like before..We took the time here to redecorates the apartment and do some touch up here and there, trying to makes it a dream apartment beside the sea...A couple who live in a bungalow near the sea here came over to visit us and was delighted to see our apartment has a new look... It was nice for them to come over to visit us here...We all sat at the lounge facing the sea and chat a while and then left to do lunch at a restaurant in the city of Malacca...We left in one car, his Mercedes and I sat there enjoying the ride...We do lunch at a restaurant call the Gerai 35 at Jalan Plaza Mahkota 5, Plaza Mahkota, Bandar Hilir, a new part of the historical city of Malacca...The food served here are that of the home cooked Malay food, the images about are some of the dishes served... We had fried Chicken, Asam pedah fish [sour and hot fish light curry], Masak Lemak cili api rebung [bamboo shoot cooked in coconut milk with chilly]...Crisps salt fish, salad and the sambal belacan [hot shrimp past sauce] and of course white rice... It is indeed well prepared and we all enjoy this simple meals... As usual we chat a little while enjoying the lunch and then after that met the owner, one Mr.Baharom... Who had been in this business all his lives... I would recommend others to visit this place and try for themselves...We did enjoy the lunch and hope that others would also do...Well friends that was our day...
