Short getaway to Malacca 27/28 March 2016


This is Nikki’s first family road trip and also to celebrate papa’s birthday plus our 5th ROM anniversary! It is also a chance for “us” to get away from home 24/7 – get a breather from daily routines since Nikki’s arrival!

We actually asked Noelle if she prefers water play or visiting the animals – and her choice is water play! So, it is our first visit to Gold Coast Resort Malacca (previously Melaka water city resort). Nothing much to shout about, but it is certainly a place for family with small kids to enjoy water play. It is quite away from the Jonker Street, about 30 minutes drive (plus the many traffic lights to beat). Despite the ‘difficulties’, we did manage to taste some of their local foods – of course, not the most famous ones (too long queue, can’t wait with a 3yo and a baby)! We ended our trip with Nadeje Mille crepe cakes, with Noelle having the whole piece of cake herself (as if her birthday).

Overall, it is relaxing but also tiring! Noelle has the most fun and Nikki is too young to know what’s happening – as long as mama’s with her, she’s fine everywhere and anywhere! Both of them behaved quite well during the road trip – being fully on the child seat & baby carrier to and from journey. Noelle played with her toys, occasionally snacking & disturbing around while Nikki was asleep most of the journey. Nikki only got cranky a little because of the long waits at the traffic lights in Malacca.

Old habit dies hard!

We are on a holiday, locally! Still cook for my 3y+ but the simplest meal.

At least I have done my duty! 😉

I didn’t stop her for trying chicken rice balls!
