Dear Erin. is something I came up with when I was lazing around dreaming of everything under the sky. You know, we all have that moment where you sit, gaze into space and let your brain wonder to catch whatever ideas there are in the air?
But I will always love you.

If you are ever in Malacca and looking for a cozy place to kill some time or for affordable high quality drinks, I have got the place for you.
No, Jangan Takut, this is not the place. This is just a picture that I took while walking along Jonker Street.
My friend Kim and I made a random one day trip to Malacca a week a go.
Our first stop was to get our hands on the very famous Klebang Coconut Milkshake. I already blogged about the famous coconut shake during my last visit to Malacca. You can read about it here.
I remember the shake being so good that I just had to try it again. Kim gave it a 10/10. It still tasted the same and the price remained the same as well. How awesome is that? The line was way longer this time but the wait was totally worth it. If I could, I'll invite the franchise to serve at my wedding and every one of my children's' birthday parties.

Our next stop was Jonker street. Actually. if you ever go to Malacca and only have about half a day to spend, Jonker Street is the place to go. They have all the famous Malacca-ian food there and the architecture is amazing. The food won't be the best of the best though. More like renditions of the famous dishes, but you can't ask for much. They manage to house everything in one road! It's like a mini Malacca.
If you're a tourist visiting Malacca, a one day trip should be enough. And then I say head on over to Ipoh where the real food is!

Parking was not to hard to find. It was free parking as well.
Kim and I have been wanting to visit the cafe for awhile now. We have been in conversation with the cafe owner for quite some time and we wanted to see the result of his ideas and hard work coming to life.
We visited the cafe on the third day of their operations. The cafe still has not had their grand opening yet but it will be really soon ! Once inside, we were greeted by friendly staff and a cosy environment. The staff are still playing around with the furniture placement , so you might just see a new set up when you visit.
By the way, the pictures were taken during closing hour which explains why it was empty. When we arrived banyak orang okay!
I first noticed how really affordable everything was. I guess I'm used to KL pricing already but for a cafe, I was ready to easily spend at least RM 10- 15 on a good drink.

This is the Cafe Owner Azim whom I recently got close to during the last semester of university. Right after our last examination ended and the submission of our thesis, while the rest of us went on a month long hibernation, Azim went to coffee school (did I say that right?) to learn how to make the best cup of coffee. He hopes to pass on his craft to rest of his workforce but for now, he will be the Coffee Sifu at Coffeeology Cafe!
Kim decided on a Cappuccino , while I chose to have a Banana Booster Smoothie.
I realize that I'm no longer a fan of coffee. I don't think I ever was. I just liked drinking it because it was the trend and mom was always having coffee so I thought it was the "normal" thing to drink. However, I tend to go for more fruity drinks or tea now. I don't like the after taste of coffee and no matter what I eat for the rest of the day, I can always taste coffee.

Kim and I also shared a slice of cake that I totally forgot the name of. Coffeeology Cafe has not decided yet if they would be selling certain type of cakes everyday so for now, you're in for a surprise every time you visit. The selection is basically down to "what the chef feels like doing today" which I find great. Only when the cook has put soul into preparing the food does the food carry meaning.
If I'm not mistaken, this was the Pecan Caramel Cake. I'm most probably going to be wrong about its name. I was pleasantly surprised by the cake. I did not expect to find crispy pieces of honey roasted pecans inside the cake. It was a light bite . Kim and I finished it in a jiffy.
Kim, Azim and I continued chatting until dinner time at the cafe. I decided that it would be best to fill our tummies before starting our journey back to Kuala Lumpur. I am not a fan of rest stop food. Kim and I shared a Carbonara Spaghetti.
Spaghetti Carbonara @ RM11
The Carbonara was light. I usually like my Carbonara creamy and wet with lots of sauce so this dish didn't meet my fancy. It tasted good though, but it could do with more sauce in my opinion. Kim on the other hand loved it because she didn't like the consistency of the usual thick creamed Carbonaras. I guess we both have different preferences.
We ended our dinner with a dessert called Cheese Kut?. It first caught my eye because it looked like an Oreo Cheesecake. However the staff explained to be that it was a mix of layered milk crackers, drenched with cream and topped with crushed chocolate cookies.
Overall, it was a quirky taste. I expected a cake-y texture, and to taste some chocolate but instead I got a really rich cheese consistency with some crunch from the biscuits. I don't think there are words to describe it but I have to say it was interesting. If you are thinking about trying it, share it with a friend because it comes in a big serving and can be a bit of a mouthful.
So yeah. head over if you're ever in Malacca.
Maybe tell Azim that I sent you, you might just get a tiny discount :P
