Malacca, Malaysia

Melaka is like a second home to my family and friends. All our spectacles and watches bought from Melaka. Friends will ask me don't you have optical and watch shop in Kuala Lumpur. Why do you need to travel so far to buy spectacles and watches. Well, is worth the trip and at the same time we can also eat and shop. Ha!Ha!

Best Optical shop in town :-
Kong Wah Optical Shop at Jalan Bunga Raya. Don't go to the wrong shop cos there are alot of Kong Wah around Melaka. You can make your specs within 1 -2 hour. Else he can courier to your house. Look for Paul Lee, he is the optician.

Things to buy in Melaka :-

a. You can buy the heong pang @ caramel biscuits, pineapple tart and the funny triangle biscuits. The triangle biscuits - combination of chicken floss and green bean paste is very unique and taste good. Must try!!

Places to eat in Melaka :-

a. Nyonya food in Indah Sayang at Melaka Raya. This shop is opposite Ole Sayang. Next to Watson. Must try their otak otak, chicken pongteh, petai prawns and etc.

b. Villiam Restaurant which serve chinese food. This is my family favourite restaurant. You must try their roast duck, shin pun chee @ yam abacus, 2 types of chicken - crispy chicken and another chicken fried with celery, special ducks - stir fried the duck meat and you wrap it with popiah skin. This is not peking duck. Highly recommended.
