Anyways, I really want to finish what I started...So here goes...
When we walked back towards the Stadhuys, I thought we will be going back to the hotel because I was so damn exhausted, hot, sweaty, sticky...you get the gist. But nope, instead we went to Christ Church, which is among the Stadhuys buildings.
=> If one looked closely, one will be able to see the handmade pews and ceiling beams that had been well-constructed without joints. Other exquisite features include the Brass Bible, the tombstone written in Armenian and the glazed tiles of "The Last Supper". It was built in 1753.
No pics were allowed inside, btw. This church was nice but I liked the previous one better.
If you are in Stadhuys or lives near Stadhuys, you will not missed this overly-decorated trishaw-like transport. Some were decorated in blooming plastic flowers, some even had music blaring from it. However, it is quite expensive to go on a ride in one of these so we did not try any. Watch out for each one as each has its own mind of creativity.
Some of the exhibitions on History of Malacca
I like old paintings!
The section about traditional Malay houses and agriculture back then
Upstairs was exhibitions on the conquest of Malacca by the Portugese, Dutch, British and then the Japanese.
I think this place would have been more enjoyable had it not been I was too tired to see the rest of the exhibitions that the museum has to offered.
Benjamin and his camera antics - That boy is a pro photog, going to all lengths to get a good pic, including climbing up a ladder!
More random pics of the exterior of the old fort plus a Dutch graveyard nearby
(Clockwise L-R): Suz C resting on a rock; Jino and pH resting on the grass; Ah Len ventured around and rested on a cannon; KT posed this photo for us - the tree at the back makes him look like a peacock!; KT performing a handstand; Us girls resting on a bench
So, presenting our Big Boss, ex-Class monitor of BF class, ex-Chairman of The Board Of Monitors, ex-Chairman of the Board Of Chairmen and now doing Pharmacy in IMU;)
Along the way, we passed by more historical architectural buildings that I cannot resist snapping.
