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.


  1. You not only scrap well... you also photograph so well!
