  • By night – Yonkers Street in China Town is pedestrian only and filled with “hawker” stalls and wall-to-wall people!
  • By day – it’s much more civilized as you can actually walk on the sidewalk and get a peek inside the stores.

  • Peanut Pedi Cab – knows no boundaries! There was no begging here, just the locals trying really hard to get the tourists to hand over some of that money.

FUN-food – Hard to believe I know…but the AC and the really good noodles beckoned us…so it was back to the Hard Rock for lunch again! Our waiter Zuqi  greeted us with his crooked, sweet smile when he spotted us coming through the front door.

  • All Dolled Up – and the Cycle Rickshaws Rocked! Totally adorned with music blasting, this 7 Melaka, Malaysia 2016Frozen theme with flowers and fringe was quite fancy. And at night they are all lit up with strobe light ropes pulsing to the beat.
  • We chose to visit this city on a recommendation from a friend who grew up in Singapore. Since I was in Singapore 25 years ago I knew that four days in Singapore would have been too many for Chris. In hindsight had we known how long it was going to take for the immigration stops required for both countries (45 minutes) outbound and (over an hour) inbound we probably wouldn’t have gone. Over 5 hours each way!
  • Majestic Malacca Sultanate Watermill – on the bank of the Malacca River opposite the Casa del Rio Melaka in the old town.

FUN-fact – The city is named after the Malacca sultanate that ruled over the archipelago between 1400 and 1511.
