  • Nancy's Kitchen - Peranakan Homemade food

    Nancy's Kitchen Melaka

    I visited Nancy's Kitchen in August 2019 during my weekend stay in Melaka over Eid (Hari Raya) Holidays. I visited this restaurant in 2009 in the Jonker Walk area. The restaurant has relocated to a new location in the more developed and modern part of Melaka. 

    Nyonya Food (Peranakan Food) is an outcome of intermixing of Malaysian and Chinese through inter-marriages in the early part of the 20th Century. The food brings influences from Indonesian/Malaysian cooking styles with a rich mix of spices and herbs. Some of the active ingredients used in most of the dishes include galangal, candlenuts, laksa leaves, fragrant kaffir lime leaves, pandan leaves, belachan and lemongrass.

  • Road trip from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru Malaysia

    Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur

    The Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru road trip in Malaysia is a great way to explore some amazing historical cities along the west coast of mainland Malaysia. I planned this trip in late August 2023 and decided to stop at some off-the-beaten-path locations on this route. Renting a car from KLIAairport is the best option if you are planning to catch a flight back home after the holidays. Self-driving trip is the most enjoyable and flexible way to explore some amazing destinations in Malaysia.
