Lemme just talk a little abt this hotel:

66 luxuriously appointed rooms located by the idyllic Melaka River near the entrance to the historic straits, named after this city, Casa del Rio is designed to capture curious landmarks and unforgettable view. This newest boutique hotel in Melaka is a stone's throw away from the heart of The Historic city of Melaka, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The architectural design pays tribute to the Portuguese heritage of Melaka as well as the unique Melaka Sultanate. While it blends with the historical surroundings and echoes of the past, the hotel caters for the modern 21st century guests' needs and facilities. We keep our dining wholesome and down-to-earth by showcasing authentic flavours.

It was just recently awarded the 2011 "Best Weekend Break" Excellence Award by the Expatriate Lifestyle magazine.

So anyway...... how do you get to WIN this free night which is valued at RM700?!

Hi Kak Rima,

I've been a silent reader of yours and tetiba hari ni teringin to try my luck~

To answer the question, what I would do in Melaka if I won?
Staying in a just recently awarded "Best Weekend Break" Hotel, what else would I do besides pampering myself with enjoying all the Hotel could offer besides the renowned Melaka River Cruise and yes, shopping at Jonker Walk is a must!
It shall be a great most-needed weekend family getaway!

Crossing my finger (secretly),

Hi rima, i ve been your silent follower for a long time... Really love your blog and all your foods...
The first time i set my eyes on this hotel... When i was in the river cruise 6 months ago.. I wish then, i could spent a nite there... But i know i cant afford it. Second time, when the masterchef was there... I saw it on tv... Again, i fell in love with the place.... The rooms are so lovely, the foods too are tempting. I straight away googled the hotel... Checked the rate....OMG ....surely can't afford it.... So mimpi tinggal mimpi.... And now with this... I hooe my dream will come true. I will fully use the quality time in the hotel, use all the facilities, and will off course go siteseeing in Melaka.... Dear god... Please award me this opportunity... Amin.

What would i do in Melaka?
Hmmm.. I have always loved Melaka for its food. Keria Antarabangsa in Kg Limbungan. Mee Bodoh in Tengkera. Nasi Beriani in Ujong Pasir. The Softest Chapati in Tehel. Asam Pedas in Kota Laksamana.
Seriously, the list in endless.
But if I were to win this, I'd definitely do the one thing I have never done before. Can you believe it, I have never walked down Jonker Street. So that is definitely what I'd do.
And hopefully I'll win!


Sophyta said...

hi rima,
i'm a frequent visitor at your site but you seldom see me commenting as baking is not my cup of tea...but, i love all your food photos and writings...both are truly interesting! Each post has never failed in capturing my interest.

If I won this giveaway, I'll unearth the Historical city of Malacca. I'll definitely pay Hang Tuah and Princess Hang Li Po a visit, too.

Thanks rima.

Hi Rima, I would love to win this.
I hope my comment will get published. If I win I would like to bring my only aunt to see Melaka. She brought me up since I was a baby, it will be great to take her on a tour there to see how Melaka has evolved since the 70s, when she spent school years there. This will be great for me too, coz I will love to spend quality time with her as I seldom get to make a trip to Asia to see family. Currently I am in Asia, so if I DO win... (fingers crossed...) this will be the highlight. hehe! Good Luck everyone!

A Happy new year to you and family.
Been reading about your blog. Thanks for the giveaway.

mrs rozaimi said...

I would walk around Banda Hilir and trace back the history of the place and find the uniqueness of Malaca which being the sole reason for Casa Del Rio to build the hotel there and the main reason for Rima and family to stay there twice.

What would I do in Malacca if I won? I will definitely take a lot of pictures to post on fb, and will likely tell my friends how awesome Casa Del Rio is.

I hope I win this cos my mum called me while I'm at work (with her high pitched voice just to remind me about this. All while my boss was behind me, watching my every move).

Thanks and cheers,

Hello Rima, I have been a silent follower of yr blog.

If i were to win, i would like to take the river cruise during sunset and enjoy the view of the surrounding along the Melaka River. A visit to Jonker Street is a must to enjoy the Peranakan/Nyonya heritage and also their delicacies. Since the Melaka community is a multi racial one, i would love to enjoy all the local food they have. Lastly sightseeing of the historical Melaka.

Thanks and regards

If I were to win, it would be a great 20th wedding anniversary gift for hubby and myself.

We can enjoy this time together with our four kiddos and paint Melaka town red! We like to check out the old shops along the riverbanks where they sell lots and lots of kueh kapit and kueh bolu moulds and other stuff and go eat at one of the Peranakan restaurant and end our day with a river cruise!

Hi rima,

Nak join jugak, so...

Here's my answer:

What would i do in Melaka if i win? 
If i win, it would be my first and decent holiday in this historical state. I would get my camera ready to capture the facinating architecture of the heritage buildings and ruins. Ride around Melaka town on a trishaw. Stroll along Jonker Street to view the antique artifacts for sale. Admiring the scenic view as the sun sets on the horizon at the Straits of Melaka, truly a breathtaking panorama from the suite of Casa del Rio.
