Like its people, Malaysian food is an epitome of diversity.
The Baba House along Jeeren Street is surely not the cheapest in Malacca but if you want to relive the Peranakan lifestyle, this is probably where the closest you can get.
Tangerines. Fireworks. Dragon Dances. Red Lanterns. Incense. I enjoyed Malacca. And I cannot think of any better way to celebrate CNY than the Malaccan style.

Here is a post-accounting of my travel expenses as inspired by justwandering.org and La Aventura Project. I feel proud of myself that I was able to note every detail of my expenses there. This practice made me realize that there are other unnecessary expenses I could shed off (tips for my next trip) without compromising fun and unique travel opportunities.
