Malacca Temptations


The evenings in Melaka City are enjoyable when you are in the right company, ya? 

Last week, we got together with some like minded friends to partake in the offer of a hosted buffet dinner and drinks party at the local SMR Club.

If the spirit is willing, malaccans can be spoilt for choice where night entertainment is concerned nowdays!

At the particular Gaming Club we attended,many of the attendees were in fact quite jovial although many were not seeing Lady Luck yet.

Probably because the Ladies of the Club were busy entertaining them all! Where luck and women is concerned,it really is not our choice what we get for the night.Women can be finicky, don't you think?

Lucky me,although I've got crappy luck where gaming is concerned but when I invest in someone it almost always pays out well !

And truth be told, tallied, counted and weighed, the net gains of that night were preety impressive for us common folks !


This particular Club belongs to the local conglomerate Berjaya. One must remember that companies like Berjaya is able to sustain its profitable corporate margins because no matter how lucky or clever an individual thinks or works up a system to beat the odds, the House always wins. 

In gambling, the odds are always with the House ( proprietor ).

But, the idea of going there is catching on with locals here. The promotions are also value for money because for the price of a Dinner out with friends and family, one gets the added entertainment of the club hostesses, seafood buffets & hosted alcoholic drinks and definitely the posh surroundings is good enough to impress and bring company to. We also met some who were not so lucky that night but they seem to enjoy the losses that they were evidently sustaining so in perspective one supposes not everything would be about winning, don't you think?

There was a time not very long ago that people only ate out in the restaurants and hotels enclosed but nowadays the city is beautifully lighted up and you can see the populace coming out at the evening and nights to patronize the eateries and cafes and fast food joints ,even way out here in Ayer Keroh and Bukit Beruang.

The night was followed swiftly with a visit to a few drinking holes familiar to us whenever the urge comes i.e in Bukit Baru or Melaka Raya and today, I was in a good mood.  


Despite being a small town, you'll be surprised just how much the action heats up at night in certain spots around the city. 


Places I would recommend include the likes of :Rally Club in Bukit Baru;The Library, Movida, Jail House, The Cube; Pure Bar, The Jetty; Sunshine Bar which are all in Melaka Raya area whereas in Jonker Street; we have Hawk’s Place; Geographer &; Honky Tonk Cafe in Lorong Hang Jebat. 

The good thing about Malacca is that it is studded with watering holes so you can choose to enjoy your drinks indoors or sip your drinks on the outside boardwalk.  

 Belt out cheesy tunes at GoGo KTV till 2 a.m. or spend the night listening to the thumping good hip hop beats spun by DJ Tokyo at Pure Bar and dance the night away at The Cube.It goes without saying that Malacca nightlife allows plenty of scope for visitors to join the party despite being a small town.

I suppose familiarity breeds contempt because after so many years of taking the same route home, i never realized or even once stopped to admire the beautiful landscapes in and around the town and surrounding housing estates. This city truly is a lighted beauty at night. 

There was a time not very long ago that people only ate out in the restaurants and hotels enclosed but nowadays the city is beautifully lighted up and you can see the populace coming out at the evening and nights to patronize the eateries and cafes and fast food joints ,even way out here in Ayer Keroh and Bukit Beruang.



The recent mushrooming cafe revival in Malim Jaya,Batu Berendam, Bachang and Taman Merdeka is also feeding the people with more decent entertainment for family dinners and friends to" lepak ". With their high end big TV's showing everything from the latest satelite Movies to  every popular Sporting Programme, every body  in the group will have something to watch in cool, comfortable surroundings .

Even the roads off the main highways are incandescent with the glow of the warm yellow lights that throw shadows away and give a glow of warmth and safety.


To those who have yet to  visit melaka, Rest assured, all around the main roads leading in and out of Malacca City the fairy tale lights and romantic atmosphere is evident, making this a very romantic and enticing city to visitors and locals alike at night! 

It appears my Old dodgy Town has truly transformed itself into a magnificent City.
