Why Melaka again? Because Melaka is only 3 hours drive with places to visit and food to eat (one main reason I went there was to eat chicken rice ball at Ee Ji Ban). So basically in December 2016, December 2017 and December 2018 I was in Melaka!
Timezone : GMT +08:00
Currency: Ringgit Malaysia (RM or MYR)
In 2017, wanted to stay at Hatten Hotel but mistakenly book a room at Hatten Place instead! Only realize its not the correct hotel during checkin at Hatte Hotel! However in 2018, booked a correct room at Hatten Hotel.
Hatten Place, Melaka – room booked was small (but there are also suites) however room is clean. Have an infinity pool overlooking the Strait of Malacca. Kids pool was under a roof so they can swim even when the sun is out! The Hotel is also linked to the new mall, Element Mall.
Hatten Hotel, Melaka – Booked a Deluxe Suite, room size is Ok (although not that big for a suite but good enough for me & my family and since all rooms are actually suites). Pool is also good and clean but please make sure to wear swimming attire. We had our breakfast at the Sky Lounge overlooking Malacca city (which is quite famous if you google night time in Melaka). Food is a bit limited and I do believe they need to improve their sambal for nasi lemak. The main reason to stay here is that most shopping complex and tourist attractions are within walking distance and so does Ee Ji Ban (the famous chicken rice place!)
INTERESTING PLACES & THINGS TO DO
Everytime I went to Melaka, there’s always a new thing to discover!
My no one recommendation would be Ee Ji Ban (located on Jalan Melaka Raya 3) which is a famous Halal shop selling chicken rice ball. I would also recommend to order the sambal sotong (squid) and udang (prawn)!
More reading on Melaka from my previous post:
Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodation around the world — online or from a mobile phone or tablet.
Basically Airbnb acts like Agoda, Expedia, AirAsia Go, etc. except it is meant for homestay instead of hotels, and it enables people to list or rent short-term lodging in residential properties. So instead of staying in a hotel, you will be staying at someone’s house! How cool is that! Airbnb is a good option when you are traveling to a place where the hotel rent is high.
Start using Airbnb now and experience the world!

Alhamdulillah I am now happily married and just had the most wonderful wedding ever! The solemnization and wedding reception was held in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, and the second wedding reception was in Kuala Lumpur.
If you are planning for your wedding (especially in Kelantan), hope this help 🙂
HIV test must be done at government hospital/clinic only. Some require making appointment beforehand and some doesn’t. To confirm on this, it is advisable to call first. I went to Klinik Kesihatan Kelana Jaya and they don’t require making appointment.
HIV test result validity is 6 months (as of now in 2014). If you are getting married in December and you did the HIV test in May, the test result is no longer valid.
PS: If you are from Kelantan, you can still do the HIV test outside of Kelantan but please bring along 3 copies of this form (download here: http://jaheaik.gov.my/v5/images/download/pdf/bpuk/BORANG%20HIV.pdf)
Attending pre-wedding course is a MUST. Once you have completed the course, you will received a certificate which doesn’t have an expiry date.
