Sexay Back: "Eh got one jantan one betina"
"I dunno .....dun ask me bout chinese culture and customs"

Sexay Back: "Wat is the other dragon doin squatting and shaking?"

"They are cutting oranges and the dragon is hiding its crew"

Sexay Back: "Ooooooo I tot she tengah lay eggs"
for the FIRST TIME, the seating format was free seating
the ladies dashed in and grab the first table.....

Chris da Boss asked....can I sit wif u?

moved her palms over her face and it changed again.....

but this performer was a beautiful lady...coz at the end...everyone said she dun have to wear a mask at all
Qian Yu & Cat
Cat was recently in China for the launch of Omega Ladymatic by Nicole Kidman

Ikan Bakar Sungai Duyong, Malacca

I just wished all of u can have a whiff of the freshly made nasi lemak
wrapped in fragrant banana leaf
and when u touch's warm and soft....
upon unveiling, the smell of coconut milk hits ur face

I'm hungry now...yearning for a lovely pack of nasi lemak in the morning
at Sungai Duyong, they served every pack freshly made and packed
with their signature dark soya sauce dip wif chili, shallots and lime
Yep it was Valentine's Day and Monkey & JS were dining romantically under the stars by the SEA :P
*wif candles and mosquitoes coil*

nope we dun celebrate V-Day...coz JS said everyday is V Day :)))
as usual, we drive around for yummy good food and landed our bums here :)))
back to that amazing pack of nasi lemak
here u go........
its grains were amazingly FAT soft and fluffy...
with that coconut milk yumminess and a dollop of sambal which was so intensely concentrated
u know wat I mean???

the nasi lemak here is about 60 cents per pack *I think*
and it is made this small with lil sambal coz it's meant to eat with ur main dishes
kangkong belacan...spicy yo!!!!
freshly BBQ-ed Otak Otak
50 cents each
it has got so much of fish, squid and prawns innit...
with a slightly sweetness - must b fr the blend of fresh seafood
they used a gas stove!!!!!
deep fried fresh squid was gone in seconds :P
we lurve small fishes coz it's pack with such sweetness & the flesh is so smooth
the above was marinated with kunyit and deep fried
I dunno wat fish were these....packed with chili paste inside and BBQ-ed!!!!!
very very yummy.....coz everything was so fresh!!!!
the format of dining here.....
state the number of they can start packing ur beautiful wonderful nasi lemak
then go queue up to select your fishes, prawns, clams, squids, crabs, and other weird snails
weigh them and dictate how u wan it to b cook msian style of coz...
yea I know we r BIG eaters :P
but it's difficult to order more for 2 diners :P

Sungai Duyong is still one of our favourite place for Ikan Bakar
and most of all friendly and efficient staff

the above dinner was RM 48.00 plus 4 drinks, 4 nasi lemak, 10x otak-otak, 3x big fish, 2x small fish, 2 huge fried squids, 1 plate kangkong

Auntie Lee Baba Nyonya Restaurant, Malacca

Monkey's favourite Lime Juice
Auntie Lee uses Kasturi Lime and blended everything including its pulps and skins
hence the intensity of this drink

too thirsty!!! I needed 2 glasses...hahahahah
yea we drove to Malacca for 2 days trip and headed straight to this restaurant

with its limitation of only 6 tables...pls pls pls do make ur reservation in advance
however if u come in small group of 2 or 4 person, there are a few more smaller tables and stool seating on the next lot of her restaurant.
fried jenak fish topped with fragrant fried garam chili on top
very spicy but very very good

the fish was so fresh with its flaky white juicy flesh
while its skin and edges were so crispy!!!!! *J'ADORE!!!!!*
another all time favourite of Monkey's
Cincaluk omelette!!!!!
super YUM!!!!
it's spicy too with traces of chili surprises innit
Kerabu timun and nenas
spicy salad of cucumber and pineapple
very refreshing despite its chili content
and it was served chilled!!!!!
pucuk ubi!!!!
potato leaves in spicy belacan sauce

hmmmm already sweating reading this post???
wait till u see this
freshly pounded chili and belacan and lime!!!!!!
wished I could take this home....hehehehehehe
Auntie Lee was so shocked to see both of us finished everything
coz she was trying to suppressed our order :P

Auntie: "very big portion.....later u kenot finish!!!"
Monkey: "can can can...just bring it on...JS u want sambal squid?"

Auntie's mouth wide open
"Enuff already.....just the two of u only!!!!"

Monkey & JS -_-"
from the pic above..u can see we polished everything off
next came the to die for Malacca Cendol
they made the green thing themselves here

with really really fresh coconut milk

there some red beans at the bottom but not too much to "cloud" the original taste of cendol
and certainly they used pure authentic Gula Melaka!!!!!!
it was this Gula Melaka palm syrup that give this cendol THAT distinctive yummyness
ooooooOOooooooo my absolute favourite dessert!!!!!
*lick lick lick*

JS piak-ed Monkey...
"wait!!! I need to take pic 1st"

QUICK!!!! it's melting!!! FASTER!!!
and we continued our makan journey in this historical town
