When in Malacca, Ride in a Overly Dressed LED Decorated Trishaw at Night

It was an impromptu trip for us in January and I had no idea nor expectation when we sat in the coach onwards to Malacca early that morning. And the most memorable and happiest moment from the trip for Ayra was a RM30 ride from Jonker Street night market back to our hotel.

That night, she felt like Queen Elsa.

The road was jammed pack in the evening and there were many colourful flashing LED lights decorated on many trishaws. You’ll find all kind of cartoon characters used on these trishaws, from Garfield, Hello Kitty, Frozen, Disney Mickey and Minnie Mouse, super hero themed rides and lots more.

If we were there without the kid, we would never have had the idea to want to give these rides a go. I felt a little embarrassed when I first saw it on the road that evening. But of course, when Ayra saw her favourite princesses and snowman on some of these trishaws, we couldn’t escape the night without giving it a try.

And it was the best RM30 spent! Seeing that big smile on her face made our heart full.

Accompanied by loud Frozen theme song “Let it go” blasted through almost broken speakers was like a million-dollar ride for 4 years old. Doesn’t matter if the road was bumpy nor the traffic was honking us from behind, as long as we are together in this pretty Frozen trishaw, she was happy.

We will be back again, next time with Zara too so she can be a happy princess in her own pretty carriage ride.
