Fitness Centre at Orkid Hotel Melaka-where you can get your chicken.




That statement on the first place will surely ignite some of controversy. This nice boutique hotel located in the heart of Malacca. It's nearby Jonker Street where you will be amaze of its Baba Nyonya antique, foods and merchandise.

It is also nicely located on a walking distance to Malacca River Cruise. For me this attraction is very nice with some feeling of  "I'm in Venice" on it.

Well by the way it's not about Malacca that I want to tell you. This is about the hotel.
Feel of being home is the first entourage when I first stepped in. Our arrival feel welcomed with friendly ice breaker from the staff at the counter.
I must say that the food in this hotel is one of the best not in term of quantity, selection or layout of the coffee house. The coffee house is simplest ever with plenty of table that might deter your movement. Foods was also limited to few choices, but I must say that it is very nicely cooked. Cook in Malacca Malay style.

Three days i stayed there, food was always delighting and tasty. I must say kudos to the chef. Where i Can find something like that in Miri? I'm afraid so..

From the window..


On the same floor with coffee house, situated a fitness center. A sauna and perhaps a gym in my mind on first place. When I entered, one uncle and one gangster looks brother welcomed me. The younger one later brought me to one room, and it is all there where all the negotiation too place. I was told about the price, the ladies, the choices and services.

I don't want to create such havoc to tell you did I or didn't I? Hehehe..

Have you ever been encountered to such offer while you are in the hotel? Come let share your experience here.

Che' Siti Wan Kembang dan kegemilangan Sup Gear Box.

Alhamdulillah, setelah lebih 10 tahun dapat lagi saya menjejakkan kaki ke negeri  Cik Siti Wan Kembang. Perjalanan kali ini merupakan bonus kerana ia bertepatan dengan projek yang saya lakukan di sini. Hotel Sutera Prima Inn adalah tempat penginapan kami sepanjang 4 hari 3 malam saya disini. Hotel ini agak lama namun biliknya cukup luas, makananyang disediakan juga pelbagai.
Pasar Siti Khadijah memang matlamat saya ke Kelantan, pasar ini melambangkan identiti Kelantan itu sendiri. Pasar ini merangkumi beberapa bahagian pasar iaitu pasar sayur, pasar basah,pusat jualan baju, pusat jualan barang dapur, pusat makanan  dan ragam orang Kelantan dapat dipelajari disini. Tidak lengkap kiranya jika ke Kelantan tanpa ke Pasar Siti Khadijah ini. Ia bagaikan muzium bagi saya.
Di tingkat bawah adalah tempat menjual makanan asal Kelantan seperti Tapai Beras ( betul-betul manis sehingga labah-labah hinggap ), Keropok Lekor  yang cukup murah dan rasa asli. Pelbagai kuih asli Kelantan seperti Lompat Tikam dan Nasi Kerabu memang unik.
Di tingkat satu terdapat pusat jualan makanan, ia seakan-akan syurga makanan dengan begitu banyak peniaga menjual pelbagai makanan yang sama.
Saksikanlah serba sedikit  gambar-gambar dibawah ini untuk member gambaran terbaik.

Di sebelah pasar asal terdapat sebuah bangunan yang dihubungkan dengan laluan pejalan kaki untuk kemudahan pelanggan-pelanggan. Ia lebih kepada pasar basah menjual sayur-sayuran,ayam mentah dan daging segar. Satu keunikan yang dapat dilihat adalah banyaknya bahagian-bahagian lembu yang tunggu untuk dimasak menjadi Sup Gear Box.
Perjalanan juga diteruskan ke Pantai Cahaya Bulan, pada mulanya memang hasrat dihati untuk bermandi manda,Namun melihatkan keadaan dan setelah mendengar nasihat orang tempatan hasrat dipendamkan. Akhirnya saya sekadar menjamu makanan laut di pantai tersebut.
Harga makanan di Kota Bharu memang masih murah  dan saya puas makan Sup Gear Box.
