Merdeka and Melaka

Here we go again. It’s that time of the year where we truly experience freedom, no longer conquered by others and achieving “Merdeka” (Independence)! Yep! 31st August 1957, my country was officially “BORN”. So in conjunction with the Malaysia Day, I would love to share all the historical places in Malaysia.

This is my hometown – Melaka. As you may already know Malaysian history, Melaka was the reason why the Portuguese and the Dutch wanted to conquer Malaysia. Since then, they left us some really fascinating old historical buildings that still exist today! Melaka is also the first location in Malaysia where the independence date was announced by our founding father Tunku Abdul Rahman back in February 1956! Lucky for you, I’m just starting to learn photography and here are some shots of Melaka – the place where it all began.

These buildings are the “ Red House”. It is one of the buildings that the Dutch built when they conquered Melaka

These photos were taken on St. Paul’s Hill – the oldest church building in Melaka, specifically built in 1521
