GLOCCOVNAA is an abbreviation for 'Great Life of Conflict, Climax or Virtually Nothing At All'. That was the long and ridiculous name I came out for my blog when I was 18 years old. Do click on the colourful icons on the right to check out different types of posts in this blog.

Mystery Of The Unknown: Eye On Malacca

There is actually no mystery, no suspense but just a few pictures of the Eye On Malaysia taken from Malacca city with a night setting. There seems to be very few pictures of the Eye in Malacca since it was only shifted in November and I would like to show some of the snapshots I took during my trip.

<This is the Eye on Malaysia in Malacca, a spectacular view captured with only a 2.0 megapixel camera phone.

This is another > closer view of the Eye but was taken a little later, so the background is darker and creates a luminating Eye feel with a slight light distortion from the moonlight on the top left-hand corner.



                                                                                               

Of course Malacca is not just about the Eye, there are also many delicacies not found in any other parts of Malaysia (even if there are, nothing is as good as the original).

Can you see the number of people waiting to enter the shop? You must be thinking "what are they waiting for?". If you look closely at the picture, there are gas tanks under every table. There are only two unrelated S-words to describe this meal, Soup & Stick.

I know Malaccans will be shouting out the answer by now, for non-malaccans, (sound of drums) I present to you, Satay Celup.

This dish is certainly very interesting and entertaining because it has a fusion of food cultures, the Malay Satay and Malaysian Chinese Lok-lok. The boiling hot water in lok-lok is replaced by delicious satay nut sauce which adds on to the taste of anything dunked into the pot. I'm not sure whether every shop has the same ingredients but Restoran Capitol in Malacca uses not only nuts but chicken serunding(meat floss) for their soup.

Like every lok-lok and satay shop, food are arranged with sticks so that they are convenient for serving.

This post is not about food or the Eye of Malaysia, it is about my visit to Malacca, but as a food lover, I tend get too excited...
