Historical Malacca Tour
After lunch, our tour group headed to Porta de Santiago also known as A Famosa, literally translates to "The Famous" in Portuguese. It is a major historical landmark and is one of the few oldest surviving remnants of European architecture in the whole of Asia. You can read more about it here.

It's so hot in Malalysia! I had to wear a scarf over my head ; p
The Porta de Santiago, a small gate house, is the only remaining part of the fortress still standing.

|Red Square; on right is Stadhuys, left is Tang Beng Swee Clock Tower, partially hidden is Christ Church|
An old Dutch spelling, Stadthuys, means city hall. It is a historical structure in Malacca Town, the administrative capital of the state of Malacca, Malaysia. It is now converted into a history museum.

|road to Jonker Street|
Just across Stadthuys is the famours Jonker Street where you can try famous Malaccan delicacies such as the chicken rice ball, nyonya laksa, cendol and so on. There are also many souvenirs which you can buy at the Jonker Street.
|bought Melaka Cendol at OCHADO along Jalan Hang Jebat for RM 4.90 per cup|
Melaka Cendol's main ingredient is top quality pure coconut sugar (Gula Melaka). Other ingredients are coconut milk and home-cooked red beans. OMG! Ang tamis! Di ko maubos lol
The tour lasted until 3pm. After that, we went back to Kuala Lumpur via the same bus. Travel time was approximately 3 hours. We had a late afternoon snack at Old Town White Coffee in Bukit Bintang area.
We rewarded ourselves with duck and roasted pork at night. We had fun visiting the historical place of Malacca. Next entry will be all about Batu Cave and more!
