Today we were on the move again, this time to Melaka. It was only a 2 hour journey and our coach was actually quite comfortable for once!! The Kancil guesthouse where we were staying was very strange with no noise, no shoes and only 2 toilets and showers between about 20 of us but yet somehow it still had a friendly feel to it.
On arriving, we all headed out for a much needed Pizza Hut lunch which has never tasted so good!! After lunch the heat was really starting to get to us and so we did not manage to see any of the sites but spent some time checking out the shops.
In the evening we went down to the local food market to have a look around and then headed to a local bar for a drink. With the sweet smell of the open drains wafting around Tom decided to be adventurous and ordered an ABC ( a local pudding). It was extremely random and consisted of crushed ice with food colouring, sugar, jelly cubes and kidney beans scattered around and then a sprinkling of sweetcorn on top. Needless to say it did not taste very good but at least now we know!!
We brought a few beers and took them back to the hotel where we sat and chatted for a bit, mainly reliving our experiences of being sick in Chang Mai, at least we can laugh about it now!! Then it was off to bed but it was not the most pleasant of sleeps as we only had a fan and it was exceptionally hot!!
