At the jetty there was more walking and the path a downward slope. So control, control lest you go too fast and not steady ha ha.
Out from the jetty complex we did not take a bus or taxi or uber. We crossed the road sneaked through the five foot way , took a short cut along a side lane and hah the hotel!

Got to wait for a while because the vendor got lot of order. At last our order arrived.
Another favorite eating spot was the Kapitan cafe at Chulia street. I like their naan and tandoori chicken and also the claypot mutton bryani and best of all their mango lassi and the almond milk.
The almond milk was concocted by mixing ground almond cow's milk sugar and saffron and boiled in a big pot. The drinks were very nice indeed. If you ta pau you get more than drinking it there . . .
See all these food are fattening. We did not worry even a little bit because before eating we walked all the way from the hotel to the restaurant.

They also have here the famous roti potong , white bread toasted on charcoal filled with kaya and topped with soft boiled eggs - two eggs!
That can give you energy to walk all over town and see familiar places that can bring back fond memories.
Once for our mid morning tea we walked to the China House famous for their delicious cakes and latte. I agreed to try here because I wanted to experience say a passion fruit cake or the almond cake if it is said to be delicious then how delicious. A cake of a certain name how it should really taste.
I want to know because I learn baking i.e one of my hobbies, only through books and the internet. The cakes are only in images. No matter no form. No smell no taste. I don't know whether the cake I baked tastes right, just for self approval
