On my way to Melaka Sentral, the bus passed on a huge golden statue of Datuk Wira. He's still very active and prominent even at the age of 85.

Started my sightseeing trail from the Dutch Square by hiring a tricycle rickshaw. Bad move for me. But my pedicab driver is nice if I look at it on the bright side ( and I forgot his name...shoot!). Malacca is his bread and butter. Been working for 30 years as a rickshaw driver.

The Flamboyant Pedicabs - my own term for this colorful bunch.

Too bad I wasn't able to avail of the  Melaka River Cruise. I heard that the sunset-dusk-early evening ride are the best. You get to see everything at sunset then just enough to see the lights of the establishments in the evening.

As I went down from the St.Paul church. The Malacca Sultanate Palace was open. So I grabbed the opportunity. I think the entrance fee is 1 RM.
