Going To Melaka (Malacca)

Yesterday I went to Melaka with Uncle Osman Mokhtar El-Mubarak, Aunty Yaman and big sister Arwa.

Uncle Osman is my father’s old friend from  Khartoum, Sudan.

Uncle Osman studied in the USA with my father long, long time ago.

We went to fetch Uncle Osman at 7:35 AM from the Sucasa Hotel.

First I went to Taman Mini Malaysia & Taman Mini Asean in Ayer Keroh.

Next we drove to the city of Malacca.

There are a lot of historical buildings for example Porta De Santiago, Fort A Famosa, the Stadthuys, old shop houses and others.

I saw a Chevrolet belonged to the first Malaysian Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj at a museum in Malacca.

We had lunch with Uncle Fauzan and his son abang Mohammad Arif.

After lunch we went to the Straits Mosque in Pulau Melaka or Melaka Island.

Pulau Melaka is not a real island but it is a man made island.

Next we went to the Malacca Crocodile Park.

We saw baby crocodiles and big crocodiles.08102009(168)

I was afraid of those crocodiles.

The crocodiles did not move.

I think the crocodiles were paralyzed.
