Christmas Eve

During Xmas Eve, daddy drove us to Portugeese Settlement. We knew it would be crowded there but we still went. This is because last year we are unable to enter the crowd, too many cars! So this year we are more clever liao, we go early early..haha! Before 7pm we already reached there, not many cars yet. We have our sea food dinner there too! Mummy & daddy love spicy food, so we order lala cook with sambal, 1 big crab in butter garlic & 1 crab in sweet & sour. Mummu prefer the butter garlic crab, very nice, the sweet & sour just so so only. Then order 1 type mix vege & 1 noodle for Wien since she love noodle more than rice! Nothing for Lyon, but mummy did bring along her porridge! Total bill is RM56++... Almost 9pm only we managed to finish our dinner, believe u guys know, when taking baby or kids for meal, we have to eat by taking turn, some more Lyon refuse to sit still in baby chair, need to take turn to carry her too! While waiting for the dishes served, mummy brought both girls walking around the place, the restaurant was just beside the sea (but the sea side quite dirty though!). All surrounding was decorated with nice lighting, plus quite windy too, the feeling is good! In Melaka, this is the place that you can enjoy most the Christmas festive! After dinner, we join the crowd to look see look see those nicely decorated house, they even decorated lighting on all the plants & tree outside the house! The house resident also very friendly, they even invite us to enter their house but we just stand outside & take pictures. Feel shy too if enter the house as we dunno them ma. But one of them get Wien to take photo with his daughter, ok la just let Wien enter his house. Also there is one of the resident pretend Santa Claus too, distributing tibits & sweets to those kids... make those kids so happy, including Wien. Very huge Santa Claus.. There is function going on too on the same night, they invited Melaka Chief Minister coming over for the count down. But we did not wait till count down as need to be back by 11pm, to attend a neighbour's house for the count down plus xmas carolling.

I went to this Portugese Settlement once few years back with hubby and friends, just to try their food. But that time wasn't festive season so no decoration at all.

Talking about Melaka, I really miss the Hainanese Chicken and the Nyonya food there.

I read from the star that they spent lots of money decorating thier house for Christmas. Some came back from overseas just to celebrate.

How wonderful, never been there. IS it true that they reuse deco every year??
