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.
