    either 12-14RM fixed price IIRC.

    Chicken rice ball has afew shops. the shop which looks rundown is the more famous one but i went to another bigger shop which is nicely decorated which seems has a history handed down. Anyway, i feel S'pore chicken rice is nicer.

    Do try the chendol. much better than S'pore.

    Went to another nonya restaurant recommeded by the hotel but was disappointed by the food.

    Didnt have much chance to do any photo shooting and pardon me if i didnt state any names of shops, malls etc cos i cant remember lol
    Ya my intinery almost same 3D2N, park and walk around for makan and photo-taking. Beside chendol any good food you have tried?

    just a tip given by one of the friendly fruit seller uncle at one of the R&R along NSH:

    WIth the long nevernding roads that awaits you, im sure anyone would be tempted to speed.

    How do you know when its safe to speed? look at Tour Coaches.

    if you notice that the tour coaches are speeding, say about 110-130km/h then its probably safe to speed along with them.

    but if you notice that they are keeping it 90km/hr.. then you better stick to the speed limit. which is 110km/h (i think).

    reason being that these coach drivers all are connected through walkie talkies, and they will update all in their walkie talkie range if there's any cops.

    Not sure how reliable is this tip.. however once i accidentally tuned in to the coach drivers conversation on my walkie talkie.. but didnt really understand what they were saying.

    nowadays they keep to the speed limit of 110km/h. i always bring my gps along when i'm in the coach, at most 120 when they are overtaking. If i'm not wrong some coach companies installed black box in the coach to record the drivers driving speed

    Norh-South Highway, exit Ayer Keroh (pls note that there is no exit that say 'Melacca', following sign board which says 'Bandar Raya' which means City and you will reach the famous ruin of St. Paul Church. That is the city centre

    There are few things you that is a must eat which is not mentioned here, satay celup at Capitol or Ong Kim Swee (I personally like the one at Capitol) and pork satay at Jalan PM4, which is a branch from Syed Abdul Aziz. And if you like cendol, stall 88 at Jonker is very good, but lots of people. Average que time for the good food in Melaka is around 30-45 mins.

    I will not go with that, because I have seen tour buses being caught, what I would recommend will be keep to the left if there is no car in front of you and keep to 110kmh and if you would like to overtake, you can go up to 140kmh, and with this at least you can justify that you need to overtake them as they are travelling at slow speed, if you are stopped. But in any case, just put around RM50 in your wallet, and not more than that, as they police in M'sia are greedy if they see more.

    Welcome to Melaka..

    If you are coming from south, maybe you can try to exit at JASIN/MERLIMAU exit.. at about kilometer 180. It just 1 exit before AYER KEROH. During weekend or PH, usually there will be heavy traffic and you might caught in jam in between Ayer Keroh tol towards town.

    Happy holiday..

    bro... as long as you are over 110km/h you are consider speeding, regardless of 111km/h or 140km/h. There is nothing you can justify or give excuse about you trying to overtake. btw nowsaday, TP/police didnt really station at one place to catch you. They drive along with a mobile speed camera.... once they catch you speeding they will hot persuit you will siren and headlight on!! So you ll need to stop and surrender you driving licence. They are not interested with you RM50 or RM100 at all!. However you can still try..but hope that you wont end up being sue another serious offen, "kopi police"..

    bro Tantalize, dont need to rent a malaysia car lah.. there are so many sg car in malacca... furthermore if you park at crowded area..then most likely you are safe..just that.. few dents at your side door due to next car open door toooooo widely.


    Enjoy your trip and dont worry too much about TP/Police or theif..as Malacca is quite a safe place.

    Polis there are not bodoh. No one believe you come in holiday without money. No RM, give S$ lo.... Normally they will stop both Spore and Msia cars. As long as you speed, you promp to kena. No matter which country cars, all speeding cars are their $$$. Just that Spore car are richer cos they might get some S$ or higher kopi price. Moreover not all Polis accept kopi $$$. If you suay suay give kopi $$$ and they are from Bukit Jalil, then you for sure kena 2 tickets. "Beri Rasuah cangkung dalam lokap".

    So... to play safe, drive below 110km/hr.
    If you wanna excitement, then drive 180km/hr or faster. Pls take note there will be some protons faster than you at 180km/hr.

    And also if you drink don't drive. If you drive, don't drink.

    Drive carefully. Enjoy....

    Hm...speeding, avoid TP, bribery or any sort of violation is not a good advice IMO But then it's very tempting espcially in big & straight NSH

    However I seriously urge TS to keep to 110kmh, it seems like he is not very experience in M'sian road....he could easily be intimidated by those crazy drviers....including those Aeroliner coaches
