I have just made a short roadtrip to Malacca/Melaka in Malaysia. It is a straight drive up north for us Singaporeans. I have to admit that I have not visited Malacca for a long time now. It is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site with Penang (Georgetown). I love the mix of cultures there: the Chinese, the Dutch, the Portuguese and the British. The history – and its vibrancy – is fascinating.
So here in colors, some selected pictures:
The trishaws are colorful, each with its own character (and decorations). Many trishaw men are elderly gentlemen who are also strong and hale.
The walk through Jonker Walk (Malacca’s Chinatown) was a lesson in colors and life itself.
Lastly, life adapts and grows, even in ruin…
