We spent most of our time in Melaka. However, we didn’t do that much aside from shopping. Thankfully, a couple of days before we left to go back home to New Zealand, I had a cute date with my cute auntie around Melaka.
We took the bus from Alor Gajah to Melaka. When we were dropped off in the middle of the UNESCO heritage centre, we hired someone to drive us around in his ‘Frozen’ bicycle. He showed us around all of the historical places and told us about the history of Melaka. And it was super interesting and fun riding all around my home city.
We then wandered around near the river as well as Jonker Walk and visited the Orangutan house and had a high tea at Straits Affair. I must say that Straits Affair has the best ‘High tea’ that I’ve been to so far as the food was absolutely divine and the service was super friendly and informative where the ambience was nice. For that, I give them 5/5.
Then we went up in the Melaka tower which rode up and rotated around for us to see 360 views of Melaka. Afterwards, we went to an upside down house where we took a lot of trippy photos.
Nonetheless, out of all the days I had spent in Malaysia, going on a date with my auntie in Melaka was by far the best day that I had.
My auntie and I used to be inseparable when we were little where we used to always wear the same, matching clothes and did the same thing. Before coming back to Malaysia, I haven’t seen her in years. A part of me always misses her because she is like my twin/other half and I was just so grateful that I was able to spend time with just her and talk about anything and everything.
I love my auntie so much, she is just the best and I can always count on her to cheer me up and give me motivation as well as advice. Although she is my Auntie, she is also my best friend and a bigger sister that I’ve always wanted. So I am super blessed to have her in my life.
Spending time with her reminded me to never take family for granted and to cherish those moments with them because you just never know when you will see them again.
Nonetheless, my holiday in Malaysia was super crazy and intense. We travelled to so many places, saw so many things, experienced so many things and thus we made so many memories. There is so much more that I could share about, however, there is just too much to cover so I decided to only do three/four different places. I hope in the future, when I travel to more places around the world or even in New Zealand, I will blog more about it and go into depth as well as sharing more photos within the blog.
