Wednesday.. our trip to the Historical City..Melaka… Our journey started at 9.00 am.. we reached there around 11.00 am..if i am not mistaken… My Brother in-law was our tourist guide and driver on that day..thanks Patrick.
Our first destination….We climbed up the of St. Paul’s Hill where the St. Paul’s Church is situated, once the prayer house of the Portuguese Catholics, then turned into burial ground for their noble dead by the Dutch. The tombstones have Latin and Portuguese inscriptions on them. St. Francis Xavier was buried here in 1553 before his body was moved to Goa in India… check out melaka.net.
I was reluctant to climb at first because of my father in law but he did not give up… lol… the weather was hot.. we were sweating… but kids having so much fun.. climbing up and down the stairs…
Resting for a while… took our brunch…by then i can’t hardly walk.. mummy so tired… in the shopping complex i admired a few unique tv stands that was on sale.. mmm.. anyway we walked to the ‘revolving Gyro Tower’… Menara Taming Sari.. its quite a long distance.. phew.
The ticket price were reasonable… my father in-law decided to stay on the ground while all of us enjoy the ride… at first i thought my kids would get nervous but instead they were enjoying more than i do…i am scared of height.. odoi..bikin malu..
Everybody were tired…bought souvenirs …went to St. Francis Xavier Church.. and drove back home… we reach home at 5.00pm… enough for a day… we enjoyed the trip.. and got our good rest at night.
