Picked Majestic as it was number one on Tripadvisor. There is no free wifi in the rooms so we ended up in the lobby quite a bit. But it was nice. The staff are so friendly and you can help … Continue reading

Malacca Road Trip: Mahkota Parade

Malacca Road Trip: A&W Meal at the Biggest Mall in Melaka

It’s called Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall and the most interesting thing I found there was the A&W. It sure was nice to have a root beer float. I really hope they make a comeback in Singapore. B enjoyed his coney … Continue reading
