Melaka; City and State 1

Go get an atlas, GoogleEarth whatever. Seek out the Straits of Malacca... It is between the Peninsular of Malaysia and the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Wow, Malacca should be a huge influence to have its name all over the waterway. But unfortunately that was hundreds of years ago. It is now only a small state by the West coast of the Peninsular. *sigh*

Oh ok, I don't do historical talk much. In fact I hate History in school because it was such a boring subject (a thousand apologies to my History teachers, where ever you are). I found this picture in my camera, which a friend snapped last October. It is a place I visited at least once a month. The Dataran Pahlawan Mall (literally means Warrior's Square Mall).

See the row of short and brown shopping outlets? They are actually lower than the street level, by half, I think. And get this, ABOVE the mall, there used to be a football field. The field is still retained because it is the first place the Date of the Malaysian Independence (31st August 1957) was first declared. 

The Malaccan Municipal had cobbled streets all over the major tourists spots. I think it's rather pretty, and you cannot DRIVE FAST ENOUGH on such uneven surface :)

Look at that unsightly huge, concrete and steel needle on the left of the background. That's Taming Sari Tower. The red doughnut thingy around it can go up and down, bringing hundreds of people to watch the city from above. It's one of the new major attraction here, other than the Eye on Malacca (a smaller version of the London's Eye). I've never been on both.

Oh lookie! See the Golden Arches? That's the second 24 hours McDonald's we have here. My friends and I occupy the place whenever it is not too crowded.

Hate the burgers. But love the fries and apple pies. Yummy.

There is a McDonald's everywhere in the world huh? Malacca sounds like it would be a pretty place to visit.

Chriss; Hi Chriss! My home state is not really as beautiful as some other states. But it is HEAVY loaded with history for a small place. Monuments and museums everywhere :)

Aizan Suhaira said...

Pardon my pickiness, but it's 31st August 1957.

Anyway.... I love McD's apple pies too. They're absolutely fab.

Shadowthorne said...

Aizan; :) :) I typed 30th August first, and then realized I was wrong. Changed to 31 and forgot about the th. :)

Thanks for the nudge. It IS an embarrassing typo for someone like me.

Wild mixture of cultures in this picture. Looks like the shopping center was built on quicksand and dropped some time after completion.

Years ago it was a shock for me to see McDonalds around the world, I thought it was only in the US. You are right, burgers no good, fries the best! This mall looks like a few malls here, from the street anyway. You should take the ride to the top of the space needle thing just to do it.

Shadowthorne said...

SLC; Quicksand.... arrrrr.... People have to go nearer to realize that those are not shops for dwarves :)

Shadowthorne said...

TechnoBabe; It is only one mall, albeit a very long one, situated opposite a larger and taller mall (not in pic).

Malacca is HUGE in malls.

Shadowthorne said...

maximus; yes you did :)
