Melaka Trip - Part 2 - Visiting a typical Melakan Malay Home

Took the beca ride to go around the historical part of Melaka Town. Visited a traditional Malay village.

Do have to apologise as the pictures couldn't realigned itself. So for portrait shots, it comes out as lanscape (sideway).

Below is a traditional stone food processor.

The stairs on a typical Melakan Malay house is usually decorated with colourful tiles.

Below is the house of a famous Malay writer, Munshyi Abdullah.

Beside the house is a Chinese temple.

The classic wodden doorway.

The intricate dragon motif on the roof of the Chinese Temple.
