CNY In Baba And Nyonya Style In The Historical Malacca Town

I was planning to go to Pangkor Island for some beach escapade and total rejuvenation during this Chinese New Year...but at last i cancelled it and with my friend , i headed my way to the historical city of Malacca where the the Baba and Nyonya population come from. They speak fluent Bahasa and the customes are the blend of chinese and Malays. Gosh.... it has been nearly 10 years since my last visit here. Beautiful CNY decoration all over the city main areas made my mood for CNY blossoming .





All the pics were taken by my compact camera as my stolen DSLR is not yet replaced by the new D90 (need to book for that model..errrr).





Menara Tamingsari where you can see the city view from up above the sky..beautiful !



Dataran Pahlawan Mall was very crowded with people from all over the world..




The ice kacang in Jonker's Street with the real Gula Melaka...yummy !!!




My friend modelled for my camera infront a beautiful building in Malacca town


Just inside the Pahlawan Mall..gosh..AM I GAINING WEIGHT ????? he he

I chose to stay in this boutique hotel ..very close to Jonker's Street and the popular Puri Hotel..., very affordable and yet authentic accomodation.... ok la....

Melaka is a very nice place...many places to visit..food...etc...dulu2 rasa mcm melaka takde apa..sebab dah selalu pegi...tapi now as i travel to many places, more appriciate it..the history, culture, food, etc....banyak benda yg tak kita explore lagi..tanpa sedar banyak yg kita ada di tempat sendiri...
