The wild meet in Melaka looks like an event to remember. Even after all the braggin', draggin ( smoking) and biking was done, there was a wild frenzy of photo exchange and talking between Singaporean, Malaysian and Aussie Vters! Lol, Robertgaz wrote a poem after his creative juices went into a whir from listening to all of our wild stories. Here's his poem for all to enjoy.. .
Arranged a VT meet,
To drag and to brag,
And of course to eat.
Typhoon Jen said she'll go,
And Basil went too,
To look after his girl,
And keep her out of the stew.
And who else should join them,
But Big Bad Bok and Bee Koon,
To join all their friends,
And race at high noon.
Things did go amiss,
When they started to race,
On a very little bike,
Jen thought she was ace.
Trying to run someone down,
She hit hard on the throttle,
And then spent a few days,
Bored out of her bottle.
Now lots more went along,
And they haven't been missed,
By all those who went,
Who were on a class list.
Mention Shopping and Eating to any Singaporean and I'm willing to bet my bottom dollar, that a magical spark will ignite in the poor sod's eyes. Mine was no exception. When I heard that my friends were going on such a trip to Malacca, my eyes sparked like some cheap china-made fire cracker and I eagerly signed up for it. Never mind if I was suppose to watch my weight because of a coming dive trip! Well, I could go to Melaka and take lots of colourful pictures, right? Also, the extra fat might benefit my buoyancy control underwater, haha .Well, if you must know, at the end of the day, my friends and I couldn't betray our Singaporean traits. Though we took lots of great shots, we ate and shop for what it was worth and boy, did we have a great time.
My friends and I went on a witch hunt for every imaginable Melakan goodie we could lay our hands on. If it was good, you can bet we would have eaten it. Never mind if it looked dubious! We definitely came, saw and conquered anything edible. Ah, I admit I was a typical yeow kwee (glutton) in Melaka.
Photo Note: It just occured to me that 4 of us gluttons here are into xtreme sports(diving, rock climbing, blading, mathoners, etc).Hmm, is there a co-relation somehow?
After we filled our tummies, we went on a photography tour de force. Bad mistake, it seemed that we ended up buying every thing we captured in our cameras. Arrgh, damage control definitely wasn't there. Read my shopping tips to see how damage was wrecked..
