Oh well, so much for culinary experience and adventure in Melaka. I was sick and lost my sense of smell and taste buds. Plus with a giddy head, I wasn’t in the mood to explore anywhere. Moreover, all the meals are almost taken care off by the relatives so I didn’t even have a chance to sample anything.
Here are the photos I took from the wedding reception when the groom came for the bride. Normally, we will serve some sweet local cakes for the bunch of visitors. The above is a plate of ondeh-ondeh. Gula Melaka, being from Melaka is one of the main ingredients in making ondeh-ondeh. I have the recipe for Ondeh-ondeh here.
Some gaudy coloured kuehs, which is a little like Penang ‘ang-koo’ kueh but only much gaudy. 😛
I did sample one and it is made of green beans, with its skin. Penang’s angkoo only uses the mungbeans without skin so it is much nicer.
Curry puffs. Actually, there are lots of other foods in the buffet but the groom was supposed to arrive at 8.30 am to pick the bride. So, my sis rushed me and I never got to eat anything. Boohoo! Why in the world would the groom come to fetch the bride at 8 am, I can’t figure. He lives like 10 mins away from the Hotel Puri. Doh! Must be some fengshui thingie about lucky hours.
Pulut ta-tai. Penang ones better.
I did had some nice seafood at the Portugese Settlement but not sure when I get to blog it because the internet speed is killing. In fact, this post was written in parts since yesterday. Grrr…
