Melaka, you’ve been good

I am fortunate to be born as Malaysian. I love my country, Malaysia which is well known for its rich cultural heritage, rich history and obviously rich, delectable food. But do you know where all these 3 criteria can be found in one single city in Malaysia? I found it in Melaka.

Melaka is the most interesting city in Malaysia. This small, friendly city with many eye-catching sights and attractions would surely capture your heart and never let it go. In the city, you can find a mix of old and new, historical establishments and old shops stand side -by-side with huge shopping complexes and modern offices. As you explore this beautiful state, you’ll learn about the rich heritage and history brought Melaka to where it is today and left a mark on Malaysia’s cultural lifestyle. (I know I did learn).

Before we dive into the widest array of food that can be found in Melaka, let’s talk about the not so boring stuff – the History and the culture.

First thing first, its name. How many of you out there know the origin of Melaka’s name? (drum roll please), Melaka got its name from a tree. The founder of Melaka, Parameswara was resting under the tree and saw witnessed his dog being pushed by a mouse deer into the river in self-defense. Seeing this whole thing as a propitious omen, he decided at that particular time to build a great empire there. That my friends, is how Melaka was founded and its name was from the Melaka tree where Parameswara was resting under.

Moving on, the society a.k.a. the diverse type of race you can find in Melaka. This state is made up of the normal Malay, Chinese and Indians but here comes the interesting part. Due to the colonization by the Dutch and the Portuguese, you can find a community of Eurasians with Dutch and Portuguese here. Oh, and not forgetting, the Baba Nyonya people. These different cultures has made Melaka one of the most beautiful city with various arts and crafts. 

Now, comes the best part, THE FOOD! If you are looking to try something new that can never be found in other parts of Malaysia, then you must try the Nyonya cuisines here. Here are a few places that I would totally recommend.
