Alfred came down on Friday afternoon and we went to Gunung Ledang for a mini-picnic; i call it mini picnic coz we had limited food; just because it was only the two of us. He prepared tuna sandwich and we bought goreng pisang on the way there; and of course Dunkin Donuts! It was nice to be sitting near the waterfall listening to the rush of water hitting the hard stones; totally relaxing. It was also a good workout climbing up and then down.

On the way back, bought some durian; it was fresh from the orchard and it was good. Later at night, we went for a fantastic dinner at Taro Restaurant near the Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall. The ambience is perfect accompanied by the live band and the cool breeze; it was a great dining experience; totally romantic. I loved the cutlery sets that they have; unique and simple. I also totally enjoyed the live band sung by the guys from the Portuguese Settlement. We ordered fresh cream of mushroom soup and pumpkin soup as starters and it was so good. For the main course, we ordered salmon and for dessert we had a pulut dessert filled with green tea flavored paste drizzled with gula melaka. Although the food is not so much to shout about, but the ambience and the fantastic live band made it an unforgettable dining experience; should go there on weekends. I'd certainly dine here the next time :)

On Saturday, we had our lunch at a shop known for its famous Nasi Briyani Dam (briyani rice cooked together with pieces of chicken); it was good especially the pickles. Had a great time.
