Chicken Rice Balls & Durian Cendol, Melaka

This is our first stop the moment we arrived Melaka. Our local 'tour guides' brought us here to try the chicken rice balls. I thought its the normal chicken rice and then with some chicken balls maybe. Guess not, its literal and we went "Oh ic ...." We are so used to rice in normal form in Penang, so we smashed them up to eat with the chicken but they ate it as it is. It was an experience but I still prefer feeling the grains of rice filling up my mouth. The balls are sort of clammy? Overall, it was not too bad, the chicken is nice.

Here we have The Four Musketeers taking us around while we are there for holiday. Nice friends Jesslyn has. Later in the evening, they took us to Jonker Walk and introduce to us the Durian Cendol. The shop is just at beside the entry to Jonker Walk. Lots of people throng the double storey shop, filled with not only the famous Durian Cendol but with arrays of biscuits and delicacies sold.

I'm not a big fan of cendol but this was rather interesting and if you are a fan of durian and cendol, you would want to try this. My friends would love to go back for more. Try it when you spend your holidays in Melaka.
Red beans are included too.

Godiva Chocolatier, Pavillion, KL

Godiva Chocolatier, as elegant as the name sounds truly delivers quality taste. Ranges of chocolates and cakes spoils us for good. Well, we wanted to indulge and we finally chose Godiva after some walks around Pavilion. Oh I bought myself a sweet flowery blouse from Warehouse. :) Speaking of a lady, Godiva is named after Lady Godiva, one that made a name to herself and currently in EuropeLady Godiva is celebrated in countless works of art - tapestry, paintings, sculpture and literature. You can read more about it in the website at the bottom. Godiva Chocolatier, Inc is believed to be originated in Brussels, Belgium.

We enjoyed the drinks, especially this two below here. Decadence is chocolate based. Both are rich and thick with flavor, topped with cream and looking irresistibly gratifying.
Decadence & Raspberry - RM16 each

Fresh apple was well made but for the price, I would have ordered something different and make the apple juice in the comfort of my home.:) The hot chocolate remains hot throughout as you can see why. Excellent idea.
Fresh Apple - RM16, Hot Choc Milk - RM13
All the cakes were undeniably good and its unique in its own way. The taste of chocolates and cakes are hard to define, as you either enjoy it or suffer through it, you go mmmm or you cringe! Rest assured the cakes are a thumbs up. You get what you paid for and leave satisfied. That's all we foodie lovers want.
Tiramisu - RM19
Chocolate Fudge Cake - RM18
White Chocolate - RM18

After all the indulgence, we had a walk outside the pavilion and the weather was just so right during a mid day like this in Malaysia. I was admiring the hibiscus on these bowls, a lovely architecture.

Spotted Uniqlo and hurried off to it and bought myself a pair of black pants.
