Weekend Getaway to Melaka
isit Melaka or Malacca ?? hahaha idk . anyway , for those of you who do not know , Melaka is my mom’s hometown and i was also born there , so it’s no surprise that a lot of my relatives come from there – even those i do not know of .
so last weekend i was dragged to a wedding in Melaka . a wedding of a relative i do not know of , and does not know of me either hahaha . i’m pretty sure a lot of you have experienced this before : attending a wedding where you don’t even know the bride and groom and yet you are forced to attend it .
i swear when i become a parent next time , i will not force my children to attend my uncle’s cousin’s daughter’s wedding . and when my children get married , i will not force them to invite my dad’s cousin’s wife’s daughter . they will have the freedom to invite who they don’t want or want . NOTE TO SELF , FUTURE WANCHI .
seriously , i can’t stand being forced into things i don’t want to do . but since my mom bribed me into this , i have no choice but to oblige T____T so off i go to Melaka …
OOTD for the wedding !! had my hair done at a salon , sponsored by my lovely uncle ! in exchange for his sponsorship , i had to accompany him for tea , and i gladly did it ahahahah
and a collage of my useless selfies ahahaa . for those of you loser anons on ask.fm remarking on how i used to say i don’t know how to put on makeup and now i do ,
here’s what i have to say for you : not knowing how to put on makeup in the past doesn’t mean i can’t learn right ? based on your theory , you shouldn’t even go to school because you don’t know what you haven’t learnt yet . and since you say that about me putting on makeup , next time you pass a test , you should ask yourself “i thought you didn’t know what biology was , look at you now , passing a test ??!” . based on your stupid theory that nobody should learn what they didn’t know how to do in the past , babies shouldn’t even learn to walk , scientists shouldn’t even find the cure to cancer etc etc , simply because the “said they didn’t know how to in the past” . good luck advancing in life then , anon .
OK END OF RANT . MOVING ON .
shameless OOTD shot in the hotel toilet hahahah
and then it was an endless chain of meeting my mom’s relatives whom i never knew about and hearing them talk about how big i’ve gotten even though i have no memory of them . but it was alright and the food was good and my favourite part was …
they had a photobooth where you could have your picture taken and printed out rightaway like the one at Melati’s Sweet Sixteen !! since i didn’t have a chance at it at Melati’s party , i jumped at the opportunity at this one haha . as you can see i shamelessly took one on my own :p and the other one is with my mom but she doesn’t want her face on my blog :(
the next day we took a little tour around Jonker Street , since the hotel we were staying at was around that area :)
spot the stone of Jonker Walk !!
and the famous red clock tower and church … which was under construction haha .
walked around a little … lots of streets full of old people selling antiques on the road , although most of them looked like priceless junk to me :/
heritage buildings which also weren’t much to see , since i come from Penang :p
sneaked an OOTD shot while browsing a souvenir shop ahahahha
it was getting pretty hot during the day so we stopped somewhere to have some shaved ice and curry noodles ! yumzzz :9
the shaved ice / ice kacang was pretty meh :/ but the curry noodles was super yummy ! trust me when i say its yummy , cos i’m not much of a spicy food person :p
the crazy famous chicken rice balls ! look at the amount of people willing to wait :OOOO
and last but not least , the Melaka river ! :D
ok ending this post with a pic of me from super long ago .
looks like a picture out of a Bollywood movie hahahah ok bye .
