This is one of my favourite parts of Malacca. After all the visit I never get tired. I do avoid the Persiaran Jonker crowds, though. See below video.
I developed an interest in ruins during a visit to Istanbul several years ago. My last visit to that city, ostensibly to attend the 2019 Biennale was a disaster, and infinitely forgettable. I did not get to visit any of the places that I like. I was barely able to explain the history and significance…
This series is from Andalus Kitchen. Lorong Jambatan, Kampung Jawa, Melaka, Malaysia. Most of the pictures under the rubric, Cafés and Kopitiam, are very randomly made with an iPhone. There is, therefore, nothing exceptional about them. The more “serious” pictures will be noted, and placed elsewhere.
This is a special place. The Saturday Ice Café on Lorong Praya, is where I first sat down and learned about the Portuguese Settlement in Malacca.
Always a pleasure to visit this coffee shop, Sin See Tai in Kampung Jawa, Malacca. The area round Sin See Tai is wonderful at night.
