Grab/Uber Roadside?

I had a friend who called out for car battery replacement assistance via WhatsApp this morning. Unfortunately, regulars in the chatgroup aren’t available to assist.

Thought that a roadside service (common repairs or replacements) provided by Grab/Uber would make most sense, like Massage on delivery by GoJek in Indonesia.

Let’s what can Grab/Uber Roadside provide?

  1. Battery jumpstart (jumpstart cables or portable battery starter required)
  2. Spare tire replacement (limited to what is in the boot)
  3. Fill up spare tire with air (portable compressor required)
  4. Fuel delivery (gas stations will have the metal containers for sale)

Visiting Melaka

I woke up one morning to find the Malaysian state of Malacca renamed as Melaka. Is that going to increase the number of visitors? – oh well, nvm.

I was in Malacca for a quick getaway and thought to document the worth-goings vs skip-where-possibles.

Food

1. Teo Soon Loong Seafood Restaurant (Teochew fare)

Address: No. 42 & 44,Jalan KPKS 1,Kompleks Perniagaan Kota Syahbandar, 75200 Melaka, 75200 Malacca, Malaysia
Phone: +60 6-288 0209

This restaurant moved from its old premises in 2nd Cross Street into new digs at Jalan KPKS 1. The new place is bright and bigger than its old premises and more importantly doesn’t have that musty old building smell. The new premises has ample parking space for cars and chartered buses.

Make a reservation at least one day in advance for weekdays and one week in advance for weekends. Order one whole suckling pig (RM268) when making reservations for more than 8 pax, it’s well worth the money!

Not to miss
Oyster noodles, Signature braised duck, Steamed pomfret, Suckling pig, Bitter gourd with pork, Orh Nee

Skip
Yam ring, Sweet and sour pork, Oyster omelette

Desserts

1. East & West Rendevous (60, Lorong Hang Jebat, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia)

Skip
Durian chendol. Wasted my time for this.

Interesting
Dried Blue Pea Flower. The deep blue color from the petals can be extracted from the flower and is used in the making of the Pulut Tai Tai (Nonya Steamed Blue Glutinous Rice) dessert.

 

Idea

The blue extract from the pea flower could be used for a drink of sorts.
