Things To Do : Kampung Morten Melaka

I actually I have program in Melaka then i call my friend to meet at nite then he bring me for nite tour at Kampung Morten Melaka City. This can we call as  urban villages is located in town centres can be found in most cities. However, picture perfect villages with well-preserved and maintained buildings, beautiful landscaping and neat layouts are extremely rare. Kampung Morten started out as a Malay village in early 1920s and takes its name after Joseph Frederick Morten, then Commissioner of Land in Malacca. Over the years, it has evolved into a model village which attracts tourists, both local and foreign, all year round. Strategically located along the historic Melaka River, it is one of the must-see tourist attractions in Melaka. Now, for the very first time, the Melaka State Government is offering tourists a chance to stay in this historic village in an authentic refurbished traditional Malay house. Operated by a government linked company, Taming Sari Sdn Bhd, the house is named Taming Sari Guest House and visitors can be assured of the best amenities, modern facilities and old fashioned furnishings. 

For visitors who have never stayed in a traditional wooden house, the experience can be quite unforgettable. This is because a house built with wood emits “sounds”. It responds to the movement of its inhabitants. For example, when you walk on the wooden verandah, it will creak. It is also not possible to climb a wooden staircase silently. Some people may say this is unnerving but others may relish the experience especially when this is an antique building with its own heritage and history.

The whole package of staying in this house isn’t just the building itself. Kampung Morten is a heritage village and it is a chance to experience first-hand, the living heritage and traditional culture of the Malays in Melaka. The location of the village is also perfect for tourists. Located at the buffer of the core heritage zone (Melaka is a UNESCO World Heritage City), it is literally a stone’s throw from many historic sites and attractions. Visitors can also walk along the Melaka River which is famous for its own history and the iconic Melaka River Cruise. A walk at night is highly recommended as the river is beautifully lighted up. Many quaint cafes, souvenir shops and art galleries can be accessed by a walk along the river promenade. Within the village itself, the house of one of founders of Kampung Morten, Othman Haji Muhammad Nor, has been converted into a living museum and named Villa Sentosa. The house was built in 1920 and has on display household items, pictures, memorabilia and furniture which hark back to a bygone era.

The world's largest frozen yogurt retail chain Tutti Frutti opened in the United Kingdom on Friday. The first flagship store in London's Covent Garden is owned by a group of young Malaysian entrepreneurs. London's first Tutti Frutti outlet was officially opened on Friday by Lord Powell who had served former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The idea to open the frozen yoghurt store there was conceived by 19-year-old Amanda Nasim, who's in her final year studying Finance and Economics at York University. She had pitched her proposal to Jay Kim, the founder of the frozen yoghurt retail chain at the Tutti Frutti International Convention in Los Angeles early this year on obtaining the master license to open a franchise in the UK."I gave a presentation on how we would do well in the UK, which locations we'll have and thats how they agreed.

Aku rindu ...

Sebenarnya gua tidak rindu pada sesiapa pun hatta pada manusia sebaliknya gua rindu pada zaman awal-awal gua bergiat dalam dunia blogging. Aku akan cuba luangkan 30 minit setiap hari untuk tulis apa sahaja aku rasa dan apa yang gua nampak. Selalunya gua akan update selepas waktu bekerja kerana itu sahaja masa yang gua ada. Ketika itu gua tenang kerana gua dapat luahkan perasaan gua melalui penulisan dan sesekali gua ada masukkan hal-hal politik. Dunia politik gua tidak dapat lari kerana gua sendiri minat dengan hal-hal politik di samping rakan-rakan gua ada yang terlibat dalam politik. Secara tidak lansung sumber-sumber maklumat gua dapat terus ke hp gua.
