  18. I told a fellow blogger about this.
    I got the invitation to go to Encore Melaka but sadly, I got it a few days after I got back from Melaka so..
    Plus, I don't have my own transportation (read: scared of driving) so I have to decline it.
    InshaAllah one day, I'll try and go see the theatre because I heard it was really good!
    There's a performance with the water and all, my oh my. Sayangnya rasa tak dapat pegi.

    Glad that you had a good time.

  21. I never knew about this, I read their website and it looks interesting especially it's about the cultures. I thought of going to Malacca last year when I was in KL, but never had the chance to and I was rushing my days to fit in with many plan. So I have to skip Malacca. But I do wish to go there when I have the chance to visit KL again. I went there once in my life time, but even that one time was only few hours and I rush back to KL. I will put this in my Malacca's list to go :D
