I was back in Melaka recently for work purposes in town. As Darling and the boys tagged along, I chose to stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka as it is situated directly opposite Dataran Pahlawan and is only 500m from Jonker’s Street. At least they can go shopping or sight-seeing while I am at work. Dataran Pahlawan is just across the road from Hotel Equatorial Melaka. Can you see the cheerful and brightly lit trishaws? There […]

There is this unique triangular houses in Malacca that is popping everywhere on my FB feed. I did some checking and found that it is only 9 minutes away from my parent’s house. Last weekend we were back in Malacca and decided to check this place out. Surprisingly, when I posted this pic in my Facebook, not many people are aware of their existence. How can you not be aware of such a beautiful place? […]
We went back to Malacca last weekend and brought my parents out for dinner at this newly refurbished place called Ole Ole Delights. It was formerly Ole Ole that served traditional Malay food with dark, wooden interior but now they are sporting a more modern cafe-like ambiance and serve a mix of Western, Malay and Thai cuisine.

We were back in my hometown last weekend and it was indeed a fruitful one as we got to meet many of my relatives. My mom’s place is special as most of her siblings live nearby. By nearby I meant they live right behind or next to her. The entire neighbourhood is made up of her siblings except those that sold off their house. The first relative we met was my mom’s brother’s daughter’s children. […]
One fine day, I saw pictures of my cousin’s hubby and son visiting a submarine. Well, I’ve seen them visiting helicopters, ships and all and kept thinking how nice if Ethan gets to see all those for real and then I saw the SUBMARINE and totally lose it. You can imagine my excitement! I’ve never seen a real submarine in my life! It’s only fair that this Submerryn gets to see and touch a real […]
Oh my goodness, I just realised I haven’t publish this post. It was supposed to be published last month but I’ve been so caught up with Chinese New Year Ang Pow lantern workshops that I absolutely forgotten to click PUBLISH! >_< My birthday was in December and I had a private birthday party in Philea Resort & Spa in my hometown, Malacca. Some of my friends. I bet you can name some of them :D […]
We were lucky to be invited to Casa del Rio Melaka Open House last Saturday. Darling, Ethan and I woke up really early in the morning and began our journey down south. We took the North-South Highway and exited at Ayer Keroh Toll Plaza. Drove another 15 minutes or so and here we are at the Quay Side overlooking Casa del Rio! :D Located on Jalan Kota Laksamana, the hotel is a literal two minute […]
We were in Malacca last weekend and this time I did not just stay home. I ‘toured’ the city :D We met up with Carol and Eric and started planning what to do. I tell you, being a Malaccan, I’m the BEST person to get opinion of where to go, what to do and eat in Malacca! My answer is always an almost immediate, “DUNNO” LoL! What can I say? I seldom go out jalan-jalan […]
I bet many of you stayed home to catch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton today! Those unfortunate ones out there, how was the traffic? Smooth? Lol! Well, since you are homebound today, let yourself FREE tomorrow! The LONG weekend is here and if you have NO where to go, let’s go MALACCA! Why? Because… The RIO fever is HERE! The five-star boutique hotel, Casa del Rio Melaka, will be opening their […]
My nieces have been raving endlessly about the fried ice-cream from Jonker Walk. I, who have never been to Jonker Walk previously can just sulk in the corner whenever they mentioned the fried ice-cream. But not anymore for I, da Submerryn have finally conquered Jonker Walk a week ago where I also found something long and springy and fell in love with it! Read about the amazing long stuff here :D I went to Jonker […]
Last weekend, I finally did something I should have done ages ago – walk in Jonker Walk! :P Being a Malaccan it can be quite embarrassing when everyone else is talking about it while you have NO idea whatsoever about it! Finally on Saturday evening, we step foot in Jonker Walk.. Woo hoo! Jonker Walk baby! Look at the crowd! I found something LONG and SPRINGY and immediately I fell in love with it! :P […]
Where were you and what did you do during the recent Earth Hour? As for me, we were at Philea Resort & Spa, Ayer Keroh Malacca. Awesome place! We had dinner at Nusantara with our blogger friends. At 8.30pm sharp, Philea turned off all non-essential lights and we dined in ‘darkness’. Romantic to the max! :D Buffet spread illuminated by candle lights They even organised an interesting activity to fill up the entire one hour. […]
