From Back To Front....

WE ADJOURNED TO MALACCA after the home cooked lunch...Lynn took us to see her auntie's house behind Jonker's street...it is an old heritage house, we were very fascinated because of its length, it is a very long house built to accomodate the entire clan family during those olden days. Now the house is practically empty... Lynn led the way through the back lane, like thieves..... ...shhhh......shhhh.....

one young lady leading the way...


from the back door


chopped woods for cooking...


anything cooked with this type of stove is anytime more delicious than gas stove


part of the kitchen


the olden days type of bed...


the well (not a wishing well though)


one of the staircase...there are at least 5 or 6 staircase..



one of the living halls...


another part of the living halls..
