Stay, Eat, Play and Love in Malacca

In conjunction to the school holiday, DH brought us to Malacca (Melaka) for celebration and the holiday that I longed for. 

STAY  
As usual, we booked the cozy boutique hotel ~ Courtyard @ Heeren. But due to the school holiday and also weekend, the hotel room was fully booked. 














Thus, for our second day stay, we went for Ohana House, another authentic house.  



EAT
Other than the famous chicken rice ball and nyonya food for lunch, we visited a quint cafe called 'The Baboon House', they served good burger. And what impressed me was the tranquil interior, painting , repurposed art deco and eco-designed furniture.  


(we are not allowed to take photo inside the premises)
But it's really worth to pay a visit, not only for the good food but also for the effort that the owner has put in to make his home more lively.

Hmmm...another one place that we love to hang out for coffee....a tranquil cafe house called Calanthe Art Cafe, they serving specialty coffee drink from 13 states of the Malaysia... each one carry different aroma.

Other than good drink and food offered, I guarantee that your eye will be rolling around to wander the little trinkets around the cafe house. 


PLAY & LOVE
A Flea market store located nearby to 1825 Gallery Hotel, right after the prime area near Melaka River where people take the evening river cruise. 
(A new place that we discovered in our recent trip to Malacca.)

There is another one spot ~ Must Go on Sunday ~ A sunday morning flea market in the Jalan Lekir, street where the Geographic Cafe house is located. 

We are able to dig some old stuff like old disc, books, coins /paper notes etc.

(Makes Me Happy) Pick your healing plant



We found this interesting game in local organic store, JustLife. The game is a mini-game of tarot card, we have been asked by the assistant to closed our eye and calm our mind, deeply take some breathe and open our eye, select one of the card.   

 



The detailed interpretation is kept in this drawer.

May : Unleash Your Creativity


MAY is the month to unleash your potential and creativity. I took a photo of the blank Mandala page in my Passion Journal. I used milky gel pen (or called as cream color pen or pastel color pen) and my all time favorite uni-ball Signo gel ink roller pen for the doodling. 



Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.  --  Francis of Assisi



The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.

(Makes Me Happy) Turquoise Stone



Turquoise color is my favorite color. DH bought me the Firoza Stone accessories from Pakistan. 
According to some surce from internet, the turquoise stone when worn in the form of a necklace, it guards the entire neck related problem and the emotional healing energy of turquoise checks the overall mood of the wearer and balances it. 





Another souvenir from Pakistan, Onyx Marble.
