Malacca Turn

Surf the the road to Malacca with my parents and our special driver Vi vien.This is a Saturday getaway after a few days stay in Kuala Lumpur. Malacca one of the heritage places with the mixture of old and new architecture building. Malacca is the third smallest state in Malaysia located 148 km south east of Capital City of Kuala Lumpur. 
The place of  PERANAKAN the Baba&Nyonya, mix marriage between Chinese traders and with the local malay people, this mixture create a unique culture the babanyonya through there tradional custome , Food and celebration

The Portuguese influence is visible in the city's architecture. As they did in other colonies, they taxed buildings relative to their width, a policy that accounts for the deceptively thin facades along the colonial streets. A building no more than twelve feet across can easily extend backwards two hundred feet, its hidden interior a linear succession of high-ceilinged rooms and courtyards.  
Over the centuries, the Chinese and local Malay cultures in Malacca intertwined, eventually producing a completey unique society, the Baba-Nyona. This fascinating microculture reached its height around the turn-of-the-century, and Malacca's Baba-Nyonya Heritiage Museum preserves typical Baba-Nyona household.
