In case you didn’t know we always put up here at
Tengkera Hotel each time we come to Melaka. But for an occasion when we were
swayed by the offer of a cheap room on an online booking site Tengkera Hotel is

(night innkeeper) ran around frantically trying to arrange for a birthday
party. Our best efforts to dissuade them from troubling themselves were to no
We gave in but on condition that

|the most convenient thing on such short notice|
|pork satay (what else?) for Cat's birthday|
|the pineapple-laced pork satay|
|simple and practical yet inviting|
Being in close proximity I
decided to spring for a hundred sticks of Pork Satay from Xiang Ji

Be it as it may Cat still miss our
son during the celebrations, however the gaiety and merriness provided by
Suukee, Amy and Uncle Teo more than made up for it. Bless their souls!
|thank you Uncle Teo!|
|thank you Amy!|
|thank you Suukee!|
