Weekend in Malacca

We went up to Malacca last weekend with some of my colleagues as part of a staff family trip. It was not easy getting the kids to my school by 6.45am, especially since we overslept, but we made it!

The first bit of the trip was spent clearing customs and dozing on the bus after a quick breakfast. Adam slept quite comfortably on the bus but Anya spent all her time playing with the iPad. Then we stopped at a place selling local products before having a Peranakan lunch.

After lunch, we took a stroll down Jonker Walk. It was a really HOT day! We also went to the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum. While we were there, I put Adam down on the floor for a few seconds because my arms were tired and Anya tripped over him and he knocked his head against the floor. SIGH.

We finally checked into the hotel at about 4.30pm and settled down for a long nap. In the evening, we walked down to Jonker Walk for some chicken rice balls and took a trishaw ride back up to our hotel.

We had a fun time at the pool the next day after breakfast. Then it was time to check out and make our way back to Singapore. It was a great family trip for us and I’m glad the kids had a good time.
