KL-Malacca-Muar trip – 5 Oct 14

We checked out of the apartment and had breakfast at Imbi market (Add: Pasar Besar Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur) which is 10min drive from the apartment. Imbi market is a wet market and there are several food stalls located inside the compound.

We ordered char kway teow, carrot cake, popiah, chee chong fun, toast bread, ginger and wine mee sua, hainanese coffee, egg tart and all these only cost RM73 ~ $28 which is cheap for 5 pax.

We continue the food trip to Malacca and the first stop is Klebang coconut shake. The stall was closed as today is Hari Raya Haji.

We proceed to check in at Calanthe Artisan Loft. There are people taking photo from the road as it's an attraction by itself. =p I collected the key from Joe's Design which is 5 shops down the road and Joe is a very friendly host who introduced all the facilities inside the loft. All of us like this loft a lot and hubby even commented that we can adopt these the display concept for our future house.

We rested a while and walked to Capitol Satay Celup.

We were shocked by the queue when we reached at 4pm as the queue has already formed up to 5 shop houses away. Capitol is already open at 4pm but the opening hours which I have researched is 5pm. We decided not to queue and went to Ban Lee Siang instead which Joe has recommended.

Ban Lee Siang (Address: 45-E, Jalan Ong Kim Wee, 75300 Melaka & Opening hours: 5pm - 12am daily) is not within walking distance from Jonker street so we walked back to the loft and drove out. When we reached, queue has already formed but we waited for only half an hour which is still reasonable compared to Capitol. I have heard about Capitol ridiculous queue from my colleague as her sis queued at Capitol from 8pm till 12am. There are 2 Ban Lee Siang side by side and we do not know what is the difference. We queued at the yellow signboard shop as it's beside a souvenir shop and we took turns to seek respite from the heat outside.

More seats are available here

Each stick cost RM0.90 ~ S$0.35 and there are bread and century egg which is at a different price. The 5 of us ate a total of 113 sticks and cost RM105 ~ S$41 including drinks. All of us agreed that we would not spend more than half an hour queuing so I doubt we will visit Capitol in the future..
What's your pick?

We return back to the loft and watch DVD inside the entertainment room for the night.
