Portugese Settlement Malacca

Our first short getaway for the New Year is to Malacca. It was rather an impromptu trip when we decided to head to Malacca for some sight seeing and dinner.

We headed straight to Portugese Settlement to enjoy the sea breeze before settling ourselves for some good Portugese dinner.

It was still bright when we arrived and there's already crowd gathering along the sea banks and pier.

My two boys enjoying themselves :))

Just gotta love the colours of the sky!

A glorious sight to behold when the sun sets.

By then the eateries that were open that day started to get crowded. Some even closed early as they could not cater to the crowd. We found a spot and was told that waiting time is 1.5 hours. There goes our plan of heading to Jonker Street after dinner! We didn't order a lot since it's only 2 adults eating. The kiddos usually will nimble here and there. We had Portugese baked fish, stir fried vegetable, ginger lala and baked otak-otak.

Fiery hot and very different taste from the usual Portugese baked fish that I have in KL. Authentic Portugese?

There's also a stall that caught my eye for it's fames horse shoe crab. I didn't dare to order this to try as I'm scared of over ordering. So I'll keep this for the next round I'm here.

We left Portugese Settlement admist beautifully brightly lit homes! It justmakes me happy looking at it. If you have no where to go the next Christmas, head down to Portugese Settlement and set your sight on these dainty homes beautifully decorated!

And this was how we spend our 1st day of New Year together as a family :D
