A very random trip to Melaka

My mobile phone rang at 10.15 a.m. today while I was still in bed. It was a call from my sister Catherine. I can't remember her exact words but they were along the lines of "Don't be shocked but we're planning a trip to Melaka today." There was a brief silence. I reacted by asking "Are you guys crazy?!" and Cat asked me to ask a better question: what time. So at 11 a.m. I was ready to leave the house. Together we made the 2-hour-drive trip to Melaka.

We ate so much. Chicken rice balls at Hon Kee, cendol at Jonker88, satay celup at Ban Lee Siang, all in the short span of a few hours. We also went shopping at Tan Kim Hock and spent a few minutes at the beach area watching sunset.

Me and my mobile phone (and camera)--we're inseparable. I tweeted throughout the mini adventure, just like what I usually do for all my trips. Here they are:
