Along Historical Streets Of Malacca

AFTER our heavy lunch in Kocik Kitche, we took a walk around the vicinity despite the hot sun rays upon our poor heads.  We must sweat out our calories after our delicious Peranakan meal otherwise we we end up growing sideways again.... hahahaa.... 

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....

  1. 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.. :)

    1. Yes, and now I hope Ipoh too is preserving the old buildings.. the structures are original, they just need a new coat of painting..

  2. 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.
