Seri Nyonya, Hotel Equatorial Melaka

Seri Nyonya

Few Saturdays back, the PR manager from Equatorial Hotel Melaka called Jasonmumbles up and invited him for a food tasting at Seri Nyonya, an award winning Nyonya restaurant which is located right inside  Equatorial Hotel itself.  This time he was asked to invite some others bloggers to go with him and I happened to be one of them. ^^

Seri Nyonya-1


We were given a bowl of peanuts while waiting for the food.  At the mean time, the PR manager, Chris briefed us about the restaurant and the Nyonya chef who is behind it. It appeared that the Chef is a real Peranakan and prepares all her dishes like how she did it at home to preserve the originality of the taste.

After a while, the food is ready and served. Here are the dishes we had that day.

P/S: I did not had my camera that day, so all the credits for the photos goes to Jasonmumbles.


Asam boi with Lychee: – A nice sour drink to open up the appetite with some lychees to chew at. My first time to have semboi drink with lychee. Something strange but nice. 😛

Otak-otak: – Personally I like this more than Muar Otak-Otak, I never did like Muar’s otak-otak unless I can regrilled them myself. Anyway, its quite good and taste a bit different from others. From what I heard, the Chef made everything from scratch. Original! 😀

Popiah:- Like how Jasonmumbles said there’s something missing in the Popiah.

Sop Hee Peow:- A soup made out dried fish bladder, mixed vegatables, fish balls and eggs. No comment on the soup tho as I didn’t manage to have a bowl of it. T___T They forgot about my portion.

Cincaluk Omelette:- I never had this before back in Kuching. I guess its either a Nyonya dish or a Melaka local dish.

Deep Fried Fish Fillet:- Wooohoo I like this! I like fried stuffs. Some more its fish!! 😛 nice~~~

Ayam Buah Keluak: – I think this is not a dish anyone can handle. The chicken meat was okay but the Buah Keluak tasted weird, nothing like what I tasted before. I was told the preparation of this dish is not easy as the Buah Keluak (Black Nuts) is a poisonous fruit to begin with and the chef need days to remove the poison from it. And I would like to apologize here for not finishing the dish that took so much work to make. 🙁

Mixed Vegetables:- The cat don’t eat vege. Nuff say. Lalalalala~~ *dance*


PongTeh Chicken:- A must have dish, the Pongteh chicken.  Not bad I would say but I prefer it to be thicker and more gravvy but Jason begs different. 😛


Lemak Nanas Prawn:- This is the win!! Oh.. I just love this dish a lot!! I just love the thick milk taste with every slurp taken followed with a bit of spicyness in it. Woohoo.. Nice~~ Not forgetting the fresh prawns~~ Aww.. I’m missing it already. *tears*

Cendol:-As for dessert, we had cendols but it didn’t turn out good. It lacked a bit of coconut milk in my opinion.

Seri Nyonya-2

I’m not really a proffesional in this field like JasonMumbles but overall it was nice and with a some changes it can be better .  Neither less it was a satisfy lunch. 🙂 I would like to thanks both Jason and Equatorial Hotel for it!! By the way, please visit Jason’s post for a better review of it.

Seri Nyonya-3

I had another round of lunch after that as someone happened to be in Melaka that day. Hehehe

Festive Season

Unknown Visitor! Jeng Jeng Jeng!

Pafu is back

pafu is back-1

pafu is back-2

According to Lunar Calendar or Chinese Calendar, we currently having the 7th month of the year which is also the month of ghost. A month  where the realms of Heaven and Hell will be opened, it is said that the realms is open on the beginning of the month and fully opened on the 15th of the month, the day of Ghost Festival.

It was told that the chances of meeting ‘friends’ from other realms are higher in this month compare to others  due to this and its better to take some precautions to avoid meeting beings from other realms especially for those who are traveling on this coming 3-days Merdeka holiday.



As for me, I do not celebrate Ghost Festival but I do believe the existence of other beings beside us, such as devils, gods, ghost, protoss, aliens, miao, zerg, terrans, scrin… LOL XD

But whether you believe or not, I think its better to take some precautions unless you like to bump into them. *Garsp*




Anyway, here are some Do and Do Not Do stuffs I heard.

– Do knock before entering a hotel room.

– Do Not arrange your sandals/shoes in position in the hotel room. Let it as messy as possible.

– Do Not let the other bed to be empty when you sleep if you have more than one bed in the hotel room.

– Do Not call names in the forest/jungle. Use nicks or numbers or even your blog address LOL.

-Do Not show your Bible/Amulets/Holy things out in the hotel room. Its like showing a knife in someone else house. You can bring them but keep it in.

– etc. Filled in the blank…

Come share any rules or practice that you heard before with us. ^^

pafu is back-4

Anyway, someone is coming back. 🙂



P/S: The wheel did not really move on its own.

P/S: And yes I miss Pafu.


Farm Town? Happy Farm? Farm?

Recently the farm application from facebook is poisoning every single female colleagues I know from the office. Almost every breaks, I can hear they discussing bout strawberries, pumpkins, stealing fruits, gold coins and experience.

Gosh…the world is turning around. Back on the old days, it was the guys who are discussing about games while the girls have no ideas what they are. And now the girls are discussing about games while the guys sitting there clueless.

Sometimes I just feel kinda alienated.

I bet there are a numbers of readers here playing this application. Anyone who is playing this, please say Aye!! ^^
