Stopover in Melaka

A trip to Kluang will not be complete without a visit to the original Kluang Rail Coffee.  We visited the old coffee shop (a coffee stall is more like it J) at the Kluang Railway Stattion for breakfast before leaving Kluang.  It was packed even on a late morning on Monday.  We waited a while before seats were available for all of us six adults + five children (+ a baby).  Service was prompt and we had the typical fares like nasi lemak bungkus, mee siam, half-boiled egg and toasts.  Food was OK but nothing mind-blowing – I suppose it’s just the novelty of eating at the stall where it all began.

A train made a stop at the station while we were there

We decided to stop in Melaka on our way back to show the two older kids some historical landmarks in Melaka, now that they’ve learnt about the Portugese invasion in Melaka in their history lessons.  Our first stop was the Melaka river cruise…it was still a pleasant ride despite it being our second time.

After the cruise, we walked to A’Famosa and St. Paul’s Church for a light dose of history for the children.

The children were fascinated by this non-Chinese singer who belted out Chinese songs for them
