Malacca Trip

Time to update the blog again.  I have been quite busy the last weekend and this week, I took a day drive with my friends to Malacca which is 1 hour and 40 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur.  I have always loved Malacca for the historical sites plus the antiques.  Malacca is also listed as a historical site under UNESCO - pretty cool huh?  Here are some pictures that I took that day.

This is a typical street in Malacca.  This is Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock.


Check out the detail on the colonial shophouses.  I love them as they seem to look like icing on top of the shophouse.

A typical restaurant - such chinese flavours.  This one was selling the famed Chicken Rice Balls and chicken of course.

As I was taking this photo,  this maid stood there holding the baby and I thought I would just snap away then.  Photo turned out pretty well.

I know I overexposed the temple shot - but I didn't have a choice - it was  drizzling and if I turned teh ISO down - I couldn't get the details of the temple.


This was a unique mosque that was built in the 16th century and if you go in - its amazing - so many influences in its architecture on the inside.

It will be Mooncake festival soon and lanterns are in profusion at this shop in Chinatown.
