Malacca (Melaka) state administration develops the river since 2005 to 'pollution-free water', gardens on its banks and pedestrian walkways along the river. This is the river where the war begin and end, and also the place where Melaka (Malacca) began. It was a busy port and a tourism river today. The Malacca River was dubbed as "Venice of the East" by European seafarers.I take this CNY holiday to visit this glorious history river. The jetty is at the opposite of Traffic Police HQ after the Dutch Square (so called Red House). N2 11.588 E102 14.834(Refer from the map).

Tampin (CNY 2008 Trips)
2008-02-09 09:44:00
Tampin is a small town established in 1832. The name of Tampin is gets from the container or pouch weaved from the pandanus fronds. The container was used to store condiments such as the kelamai or dodol and the shrimp paste belacan. For more information, please visit wiki.There are 2 things attract me to this small town......The Longkang Mee (Drain noodle) and the border of N. Sembilan and Melaka (Malacca).The history of this noodle is about more than 80 years ago and it's name Long Kang mee because the stall was setup beside the drain when the owner started the business. But today they beautify it with "Long Jiang Mian" and forget about the word 'drain'.Located at N2°28.026 E102°13.794Too bad I found it during their break time!
