Along the way, we took some pictures of the Heritage houses... we were simply impressed by them... they really take efforts to maintain the structures of these homes built during the Dutch and Portugese days....
Some residence for rent....
Even our friend is impressed.....
The Blue Houses (as I called them)
Built in 1939
Along the Jonker Street...
Yours truly cannot resist the hot from the pot Ondeh Ondeh...
The two houses side by side...
Landmark of Jonkers Street...
Never leave Malacca empty handed though....
being the Historical City, sure gotta preserve those old buildings as much as they could lah.. unlike KL where anything aged must be demolished and replaced by modern skyscrapers huh?? haha.. I actually think Penang is also doing a good job in preserving the history too.. :)ReplyDelete
Yes, and now I hope Ipoh too is preserving the old buildings.. the structures are original, they just need a new coat of painting..Delete
I really admire the Heritage buildings in Malacca & Penang. Most of them are so well preserved. Along Jonker Street, there are some shops selling very nice pineapple tart. Love the ondeh ondeh.ReplyDelete
Yes, I bought two boxes... not so butter rich but they are fine with me...Delete
I think I bought onde-onde from the same sidewalk stall about 5 ago, haha.. Same, I went to Jonker street night for dinner, then the next morning again for kuih, meesua, lou por peang, pineapple tarts, and chicken rice..ReplyDelete
hahha..everything also got along that street!Delete
Its been a long, long time I have not visited Malacca. Would love to do so one of these days.ReplyDelete
Would love to go with you ladies one day!Delete

I same thoughts with Chris, wish i got lots of $$$ to retire and go travel, haha....ReplyDelete
There will come a day!Delete
It's been a while since I went to Melaka. I remember people always complain that it is very hot in Melaka.ReplyDelete
Maybe because we walk a lot in Malacca.. instead of driving.. cos the roads are so narrow..Delete
sponge bob for me? hint hint wink wink...lol...joking la. True what you have said. Go Jonker st sure never leave empty handed. I will buy the pineapple tartsReplyDelete
I also bought and finished them already!!Delete
It has been a while I have not visited Melaka. I plan to bring my father there for a day trip and take the canal boat cruise which is amazing to view the town in the cool evenings!ReplyDelete
