Melaka (Melakka, Malacca) is known to be a town rich in culture.Â Itâ€™s only about roughly an hourâ€™s drive from Kuala Lumpur.Â I was so excited to go to Melaka as it is one of the historical city centers that are listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site.Â This city had some Portuguese influence in it and you will find Churches built for Christians.
Me and William waited for Sat, Jess, Steven, McBone, Aaron and Alvin at Asia Cafe.Â I ate some Asado Beef noodles I think (you know how heavy of a breakfast eater I am)
and of course, my favorite, Milk Tea 😀
I look different and weird hereâ€¦ I look 10 pounds more lol
This is Jess ^_^ One of the sweetest Malaysians I know 🙂
My first impression of her when we finally met â€œWow, sheâ€™s tallâ€
Her first impression of me â€œOh, sheâ€™s smallâ€
Four Feet Eleven baby 😛
On Williams car with Me, Aaron and Alvin.
No cam-whoring inside car lol
We kinda all wore read.
It wasnâ€™t planned.
I didnâ€™t know how to spell â€œMelakaâ€ at first.Â There seems to be different spellings like â€œMelakkaâ€ and â€œMalaccaâ€
Good thing I grabbed a snapshot of this signage.
â€œMelakkaâ€ â€“ is just a misspelling
â€œMalaccaâ€ â€“ appears to be the English word counterpart of the place
(I remembered Malacca from our Asian History Studies in High School)
Entering the City of Melaka 😀
Outside â€œChrist Churchâ€ a dozen of Pedicabs decorated with flowers were parked nicely 😀
A busy street in Melaka.Â It had really tiny roads.
Aaronâ€™s shirt says â€œIâ€™m Surrounded by Idiotsâ€
â€œSelamat Tahun Baru Cinaâ€ which meansâ€¦
(I donâ€™t know really :P)
Sign pointing to â€œEye on Malaysiaâ€
Me taking a picture of William taking my picture, who also is taking my picture while I was taking a picture of him.
Get it? lol
Aaron behind me has a â€œwtfâ€ face as I cam-whore lol
I donâ€™t know what this is, it was just nice taking photos of it because it is red.
The structures and buildings around Melaka are painted with the same shade of red.
Even the Church is Red.
More about the Christ Church on my next blog post 😀
Guess who 😛
We headed to Pahlawan mall to chill 😀
Fountain inside the Pahlawan Mall in Melaka
Lovely Plane, GGP alert lol (inside joke)
Train for display (doesnâ€™t work)
I am not quite sure what this wall is, but it looks like our very own Intramuros.
Close up 😀
Silhouette of the Portuguese Ship Museum.Â Shooting against the light is a challenge.
This is actually a part of the Portuguese ship.Â I think they used this river as ports before 😛
Looking back at it now, I could feel again how relaxing it is just to sit under the tree 😀
The old school Portuguese Ship looks pretty.Â Itâ€™s like Iâ€™m being transported into a time capsule or something.
When traveling Melaka, make sure to bring light colored clothes and very comfy ones like spaghetti strap, sleeveless tops, shorts and sandals.Â It is very hot in here!Â I wanted to wear a bikini lol.Â Just bring water as well to prevent dehydration.Â But remember, do not take too much water too!Â You donâ€™t want to have the urge to pee all the time while traveling. 😛
On my next Blog posts: Christ Church, St. Paulâ€™s Church Ruins, Bowling in Pahlawan Mall, Taming Sari and Dinner in Melaka (Satay Celup)
Till next time 🙂
