Melaka’s Golden Delicacy

Melaka is known as a haven for yummy local food and many people love going there during the holidays for a delicious food road trip. If you are familiar with Melaka, then you would know that one of the most famous food there is none other than their signature chicken rice balls that takes chicken rice to the next level. It’s basically taking the fragrant chicken rice you know and love then shaping the rice into cute little golf ball sizes. Of course, the meal isn’t complete with some tender yet firm chicken meat, and its tangy chili sauce. So, where did this local delicacy get its round shape from?

Malacca was said to be very busy 24/7. There was never a specific lunch time, or a time to each a hot plate of rice, or so they thought.

One of the stories starts with Hoe Kee, one of the most popular chicken rice ball shops in Melaka according to ‘Eating Asia’. The story begins from decades ago, a fisherman who was arrested when pursuing a catch in the Indonesian waters, so his wife had no choice but to be the breadwinner of the family and decided to sell Hainanese chicken rice at Melaka’s main jetty to the laborers working at the docks. she thought up and idea to sell her rice by rolling it into tennis-sized balls so that the workers could handle the rice easily and carry it around. Other theories come in that it was created by chefs so that workers can keep their food warm and not dry, while others also said it was for the ease of transportation.

Bylokan had the chance to try one very famous place for its Halal Chicken rice balls, which is the My Chicken Rice, located literally in the middle of Jonker Street. For us, the location is centrally located in the tourist spot, as it is in the middle of Jonker Street and it serves one of the best chicken rice balls we have ever had. We also had their bean sprouts and also their tauhu, which is what we would advise you to get alongside your delicious rice balls. The halal status of this shop is also certified so that Muslim Visitors will not have any hesitation. So, if you’re looking for a top-notch meal in Melaka, head over to My chicken Rice, and let your cravings be fulfilled.

the standard potion comes in 5 rice balls but you can always ask for more

The Story of Mr Abu the Noble Cobbler

One of Mr Abu’s favourite places .

In a city full of energetic and noisy honk sounds made by thousands of cars on busy roads of KL, lives Mr.Abu, an old man who is also a cobbler. He loves to donate shoes to the kids who cannot afford to buy them. Mr.Abu spends all his time making shoes and donate it to the poor. This makes him feel happy and blessed and at the end of the day, knowing that he cannot give them anything fancy but just a pair of shoes.

Mr.Abu never stayed in one place, he keeps shifting from one place to the another in the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur. Usually, he would go to places such as outside of convenience stores or banks, the places where he knows the homeless people would usually be at. Mr.Abu claims that he has done this for 6 years but on no occasion, he eventually gets tired of making shoes and decided to offer them to the needy.

When we asked about his stories, there was one story that really touched our heart. A very heart-wrenching story, I would say. One day he noticed a little boy who was sitting in one corner and crying. He immediately rushed towards him and asked him why he was crying. The boy looked at his face with the tears in his eyes and replied to Mr Abu that he had starved himself for a few days and did not eat anything. Mr.Abu felt sorry for him and he quickly went inside the 7-Eleven convenient store and got him a bunch of food and snacks for him to fill his tummy. The boy was so happy and couldn’t thank him enough.

A few weeks later, Mr.Abu saw the boy in very good shape, and surprisingly, the boy bought him a wooden stool for him to sit on while making shoes, new shoes for him to give to other kids, and also a hat to protect him from the heat of Kuala Lumpur. The kid told him that the food Mr.Abu donated to him, provide him some energy to work extra hours and gain more money and he was so thankful on the day he met Mr.Abu.

The story teaches us to have some courage and be kind to those who are in need. The more you give, the more you will get back. The story gave a huge impact on our team and we decided to tell his story to the world, with permission from him of course. The stories within the concrete jungle are something worth to be listened to. Mr.Abu and other people inside of Kuala Lumpur each have their own story and golden values that they hold onto, which we can also take and make it ours.

Challenges in traveling to Malaysia – Language Barrier

Although it is hard to believe everything in life have their own challenges, and this includes travel to this beautiful country, Malaysia. There’s a lot of good things that Malaysia famous for, but the fact that everything in the world has their own good and bad so we want to share to you another perspective of Malaysia that a traveler normally has to face.

Wei macha, you want to makan here or tapau?

The first and foremost is the language barrier. Malaysia mixed everything here and turns out it’s not only the food. Most Malaysian can converse in English, but as you can see above, Malaysia is so unique that they create a language on their own. Three different languages in one sentence sound impossible to you? But to Malaysian, it wasn’t.

So how to overcome this?

Next, the very simple gesture are to laugh and smile a lot. Luckily, this body language is universal. An easy going demeanor makes it much easier to make it through a conversation consisting mainly of gestures and miming. And the best part that you should experience in Malaysia is, the power of hand. I mean your hand can seem powerless right now but in Malaysia, people take serious the hand gestures than any place.

Next, as any traveller that need to learn some basic words before traveling and so do you. Learning new language could also be an advantage to you, I mean at the very least you maybe can get things at cheaper price, you don’t have to go through all the hassle to find a toilet, or you could create a new relationship with the local people. So say yes people to this language.

Can I buy this? – Boleh saya beli ini?

How much is this – Berapa harga ini?

What is your name? – Siapa nama awak?

Can I go there – Boleh saya pergi ke sana?

Where is Kuala Lumpur – Di mana Kuala Lumpur?

Malaysia is such a beautiful country – Malaysia ialah sebuah negara yang cantik

And hey, if you really can’t stand the language barrier, there are always translator apps for you to use. It proved especially useful especially when the language uses an entirely different alphabet, like Greek. And one of the apps is Jibbigo, that allows you to speak or type the word or phrase you want to be translated, and with just a few taps, a both written and oral translation is now ready.

Challenges can exist in every possible way for traveler especially when they’re 1000 feat far from home. But that should not stop you from having your traveling adventure, at least. Or maybe you can have the short way and book the adventure with us. With us, we’ll make the local adventure to be easier. Read more on our website, Byloka.

Pulau Aman

A beautiful small island that you never knew existed

As one of the Malaysia’s island. Pulau Aman was always left out from people’s knowledge (including me, before this). Turns out, that island hold a beautiful phenomenon, interesting activities and mouth-watering food.

(The yummiest Mee-Udang)

Food? yes it’s the local food, Mee Udang (Prawn Mee) that outstands Pulau Aman the most. According to the local, there are even some foreigners that come to Pulau Aman just to eat the signature; Mee Udang’s dish. So, if you want to have a slurp-ie taste how the Mee Udang’s with the strong taste from the prawn’s taste, you surely should come to the Pulau Aman. And to those who are not really a Mee-guy, Char Kue Teow and others as your rescue.

(Fisherman-boat but for passengers they will have a canopy!)

Operating Hours: 8.00am – 8.00pm
Adult Ticket Price: RM6.00
Children Ticket Price: RM4.00

To get there, nab a boat from the Batu Musang’s Jetty and cruise past some the sea and you can imagine yourself in PIRATES IN THE CARIBBEAN’s movie as according to legend, in the past, pirates would climb up to the peak of the island to watch for trade ships because you can get a perfect bird’s eye view from the top of Pulau Aman.

Breadfruit – (does it really taste like a bread?)

As for the Island, you will feel as if you’re in a real-life movie: powder-white beaches, traditional houses, and even the oldest breadfruit trees in the country (it was planted in 1890). And for those who wonder how it taste like, surprisingly it tastes like a bread (Breadfruit taste like a bread, okay that is new to me) or maybe pretty much like a sweet potato. We don’t know, go there and give your own description.

Kampung-stay? A wise combination of kampung and chalet idea.

From far, the island resembles a mountain, and is packed with lush trees, wooded spaces, but it actually not how it looks like. There’s so much more inside. They provide you with interesting activities, souvenirs, and there’s even kampung-stay (village stay) theme vacation if you want to experience temporarily living there.

There you go, one of the island that you might want to reconsider for the your next vacation.
