Rosa Malacca. Unik kan nama hotel ni. Hotel ni agak terkenal di Instagram. Setiap sudut dihotel ni sangat lah ‘insta worthy’. Gambar di atas ni ialah bahagian luar hotel Rosa Malacca ni. Cantik kan? tak gambar atas ni?

Melangkah masuk ke dalam hotel ni mesti korang tercari mana nak reception counter untuk check in kan. Gambar diatas ni ialah ruang lepak santai jer. Lobbi terletak di tingkat 1.

Keluar dari lif tingkat 1, korang boleh lah terus check in. Bersebelahan dengan kaunter reception ni ada cafe. Boleh lah korang lepak makan atau minum2 santai kat sini. Hafiz tak sempat breakfast atau makan kat sini sebab dah ada plan makan kat luar.

Gambar kat atas ni ialah kedaaan dalam bililk. Kitaorg bertiga, jadi dok lah bilik Family Room ni. Memang best dan selesa.

Secara keselurahnnya hotel ni memang best. Cuma kena bagitau siap-siap yang hotel ni tak ada swimming pool. Nextime kalau datang Melaka memang akan book lagi kat Hotel ni.

Please note that you can also ask that it be cooked with egg or sardine, in which case it would be called ‘roti telur’ or ‘roti sardin’.

Important : Some Traditions That Only Locals in Kuala Lumpur Can Understand

thumb_600

Malaysia’s rich multiculturalism has given way to many unique features in the way people express themselves. Kuala Lumpur as the heart of the country, is the best place to witness the manifestations of this singular culture of Malaysians.

1. The eating never stops

Pasar malam, 24-hour food joints, tents occupying stretches of roads, roadside spots – the places you could go to eat anytime anywhere are endless. Serving up all kinds of food, from traditional Malay nasi lemak to Chinese dimsum to Indian dosa or the local call it tosai and modern iterations of Malaysian burgers – Malaysia has a night life like no other. It isn’t a custom to turn in for the night early; for what other time does the hard-working population have to catch up with their friends and gossip about the whole day? Over a cup of teh tarik and various options of food for supper, this is the way to go for all Malaysians regardless of job, race or religion.

2. Everything celebrated with lots of food and noise

No festival or event celebrated in Malaysia will be celebrated without food. If something is to be celebrated, it must be done in the liveliest way possible. During Ramadan or the fasting month, people from all races & religion are so excited to break fast together. During Chinese New Year, the signature fire crackers are brought out, while during Deepavali and Thaipusam the sounds of prayer bells and fireworks fill the air. Large family lunch or dinners are often held. There is also a local tradition to organise open house that literally everyone invited.

3. Speaking more than three languages in a single sentence

While it is common to find certain cultures speaking in their mother tongue to each other – it is the interactions between people of differing cultures to carefully observe. Even those who speak primarily in a single language will switch to another to get the message across more clearly. It is a common custom to pick up a few words in a language not your own, to communicate better with another person of that language.

For example, when ordering at the mamak, a local person might say, ‘Anneh, roti canai, satu, ta pau, thank you.’

Let see the multilingual breakdown, with the languages in brackets: Anneh – Brother (Tamil), satu – one (Malay), ta pau – take away (Mandarin), thank you (English).

4. Fusing traditional foods in a meal

Much like our languages, we also have a customary habit of mixing our dishes during a single meal. Imagine a spread of Malay nasi lemak (coconut rice), Indian curries and a side of Chinese noodles for lunch. Or how about some sup tulang (Malay bone broth) with putu mayam (Tamil sweet noodles) and Chinese fried oysters for supper? Feast your heart out with every cultural delicacy combination possible, at most food courts and markets or pasar malam. Do note that the pork & alcohol are not widely serve in most food courts and pasar malam as it is against the Muslim religion to consume non-halal food.
