HistoricalThe Stadthuys

The legacy of the Dutch is still very

much alive and felt in Melaka in a form

of a building called the Stadthuys.

It was the oi cial residence of the

Dutch Governor, built in 1650, built in

4 stories on a terrace of St. Paul’s hill

covering 49,200 sq. feet in area. It had

been the Governor’s residence until as

early as the 18th century. It also was

the Dutch Administrative Centre until

1824. Why, even the British made this

building their administrative centre

too. The Stadthuys continued to be

the State Governing Centre until the

end of 1979. The original colour of this

building was white. It was changed to

red during the 1820’s and then came

to be known as ‘The Red Building’ to

Porta de Santiago

Porta de Santiago, which means The Famous, is a

Portuguese fortress located in Melaka. This is the

best evidence of Portuguese occupation hundreds

of years ago. Located at the foot of St. Paul’s Hill,

was built in 1512 under the command of Alfonso

de Albuquerque. Its signii cance started to fade

when the British settled here in the early 19th

century. The British had almost destroyed the

whole complex when Sir Stamford Raffl es arrived

in 1808. He was able to stop the destruction, but

unfortunately what is left until today is nothing

more than a gateway called Porta de Santiago.

Bukit Cina is situated southeast of Melaka

Town, about 148 metres above sea

level and covers an area of 42 hectares.

There are more than 12,500 graves on

Bukit China including approximately 20

Muslim tombs. Bukit Cina is also believed

to be the oldest and largest traditional

Chinese cemetery outside China. The

weather had taken a heavy toll on the

tomb, and in 1933 Cheng Hoon Teng

Temple had undertaken to repair it. A

stone inscription was erected to mark

it. The tomb was again restored in 2001.

This fort was built by the Portuguese between

year 1512 to 1550. However in late 1660 to 1670,

a structure that is named “Middlesburg” was

added by the Dutch. Up to today, the Heritage

Department of Melaka still conducts research on

this fort. Several things have been discovered,

such as the six bastions and a huge sewerage pipe

dated 1895. Other than reconstructing the fort,

the department makes sure that the structures

within the fort are restored and preserved.

Malaysia took the i rst step into heavy industry especially in the manufacture

of commercial vehicles with the establishment of HICOM (Heavy Industries

Corporation of Malaysia) in 1980 and PROTON (the National Automobile Industry)

in 1983. Subsequent to that, PERODUA (the second National Automobile Industry)

was formed in 1993, and this was followed by MODENAS (National Motor-cycles

and Engines) in 1995. The Malaysian Motor Industry has since developed by leaps

and bounds. As an adjunct to the development of the motor industry, YAB Datuk

Seri Haji Mohd Ali bin Mohd Rustam, the Chief Minister of Melaka, initiated the

Autocity Site which was oi cially declared open 2 January, 2010. He also proposed

that the Melaka Museums Corporation to establish a ‘Melaka Transportation

Museum’ in this Autocity to exhibit cars, motorcycles, bicycles and other such

means of transportation, each with its own antique and unique features.

Melaka Sultanate Palace Museum

The Melaka Sultanate Palace is a replica of a

Sultan’s palace during the era of the Melaka

Sultanate. This replica was built from records

obtained from the ‘Malay Annals’ depicting

the unique architecture of a palace during the

ruling era of Sultan Mansur Shah. Apart from

the unique building design and ornate wood

carvings, visitors will also be able to obtain

insights on the institution of the Melaka Malay

Sultanate and the opportunity to experience

a true palace atmosphere via dioramas of a

Royal Dias, a visiting trade delegation, diorama

of the feud between Hang Tuah and Hang

Jebat, as well as the Royal Bedroom. There

are also scale models of other Malay palaces

and a collection of traditional costumes,

accessories, weapons, and earthenware.

The King’s Well is also known as the ‘Hang Li Poh Well’. Sultan Mansur Shah (1458-

1477) ordered the well to be dug for the exclusive use of his wife, Hang Li Poh,

who came from China. The water

was used for their daily needs and

surprisingly, the never dried up, even

in the severest droughts. According

to folklore, whosoever drinks from

the well will return to Melaka.

In 1511, Johor warriors poisoned

the well, killing many Portuguese

who drank the water in 1606, the

Dutch committed the same act and

the Acehnese followed suit between

1628 and 1629. Their intentions

were to covertly kill of their

enemies. When the Dutch realized

the importance of the well, they build a

wall, resembling a small fort; complete

with cannons and a guard-house to

safe-guard it. However, during the

British occupation, the well fell into

disuse and the guard-house became


Hang Tuah Well

Hang Tuah himself was said to have

dug this well and it has never dried-

up even in the most severe droughts.

Water from this well is said to be

sacred and has healing properties.

Local believe that Hang Tuah’s soul

which takes on the apparition of a

white crocodile dwells in this well. The

presence of this well also gives rise to

the notion that Hang Tuah was from

Duyong. The locals however dispute

the belief and said that he was from

Duyong, in East Sumatera where

a similar well also exists. The Hang

Tuah Well was gazetted as an old

monument and heritage site under

National Heritage Act 2005.

Hang Kasturi Mausoleum

Hang Kasturi is one of i ve great warrior

brothers is Hnag Jebat, Hang Tuah,

Hang Lekir and Hang Lekiu. The i ve

brothers were great warrior during the

reign of the Melaka Sultanate especially

during the regime Sultan Mansur Shah

(1456-1477). The courage and strength

of the i ve great warrior plus the

wisdom of the Bendahara Tun Perak to

back up and help Melaka Sultanate to

expand the Melaka empire up as far as

the Malay Archipelago and thus Melaka

Hang Jebat Mausoleum

Here lies Hang Jebat, a worrior labeled a traitor, all for the love of a friend. During

the rule of Sultan Mansor Shah (1456-1477 A.D), there lived young men who grew

up together. Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Kasturi, Hang Lekir and Hang Lekiu

were inseparable and became known as the ‘Five Companions’ in the epic ‘ Hikayat

Hang Tuah’. Sultan Mansor Shah was so impressed with the skills of the i ve that he

immediately gave them positions at his court. and Hang Tuah became his favourite.

Hang Jebat, who was beside himself with grief, could not understand why the

Sultan summarily ordered his brother’s execution without i rst giving him a chance

a prove his innocent. Disillusioned and broken-hearted, Hang Jebat ran amok and

sought revenge, killing everyone that

tried to protect the Sultan. The battle was

said to last for three days until Hang Jebat

was stabbed and died in his friend’s arms.

Hang Tuah is synonym to Melaka and he is

well known for his bravery and loyalty to the

Sultan. His outstanding performance as a

military oi cer made him a legend that has

graced many in the history of Melaka. His

valiant act caught the Sultan’s attention and

he was called to the palace and conferred a

knighthood the youngest ever to be knighted.

The Dutch Graveyard

This graveyard was irst used at the last

quarter of the 17th Century. Presently, 5

Dutch and 33 British graves are sited within

its compound. This cemetery was used in

two stages that is between 1670-1682 and

later between 1818-1838. When the British

took over Melaka in 1795, they initially used

st paul’s hills as their burial ground and only

in 1818 they did they began to make use of

this cemetery. The irst British person to be

buried here was captain John Kidd, captain

of the ship while the last British person to

be buried was the wife of a British army

oicer 1838. Most of the British buried here

were army or naval personnel. A number

of wives of army oicers were also buried

here. The grave that attracts the attention

of the most visitors is the one that has a tall

column on it in which two army oicers,

who were killed during the war between

the British and Naning in the interior of

Melaka in 1831, were buried. This graveyard

has been gazette as national monument

Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee. It

is probably one of the last traces of

the British colonial era in Malaysia

which symbolizes the glorious days

of the British colonization in Malaysia

is still functioning well today, and

is considered as one of the most

Christ Church

When the Dutch took over Melaka from the hand of the Portuguese, they built

the Christ Church as a place of worship. This Church, completed in 1753, is the

oldest functioning Protestant church in

Malaysia and has gone through several

stages of change under the domination

of dif erent colonials. The church

is painted in red which remained

the hallmark of Melaka’s Dutch-era

buildings. Surrounded by beautiful

landscape, will probably feel like

visiting a vintage church somewhere

in Europe. Christ Church Melaka now

belongs to the Anglican Church, which

Christ Church handed to British and

consecrated to use as Anglican service

from 1838 until today.

wearing a t-shirt and shorts (i.e. Malaysian

style) is acceptable.

Located along Jalan Tukang Mas or Jalan

Harmoni, the mosque was built by Che

Mat Bin Kecut in 1748 on a part of land

that belonged to Dato Shamsuddin bin

Dato Aroon. Rumours say that it was

constructed because the land where

Kampung Hulu Mosque was standing

had to be auctioned of by Hajah Aminah

Shamsuddin who inherited it, though the

process was stopped on time. Since these

two mosques are close to each other, Friday

prayers for Muslims have to be performed

in turns. Being on the same road of Cheng

Hoon Teng Temple for the Chinese and Sri

Poyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple for the

Indians, Kampung Kling Mosque provides

Jalan Kampung Hulu, 75200 Melaka.

This building was built by Dato Shamsuddin

not very far from Tengkera Mosque, believed to

be built in 1728, while some say it was actually

built in 1720. The style of this mosque follows

the same pattern of other mosques of its age,

by keeping the original wooden structure even

though it has been renovated several times.

This mosque is claimed to make anyone feel

at peace while performing their prayers in it,

thus it is considered unique compared to the

newer mosques. Some parts of this building

have Chinese writings on them because Dato

Shamsuddin’s father, Dato Aroon or Haron was

a man from China who embraced Islam.

This mosque is located along

JalanTengkera (Tranquerah) and was

constructed in 1728. Its roof was made

to be identical to Melaka traditional

architectural style, with a 50-feet

pagoda-shaped tower built right on

its side. The compound is i lled with

hundreds of old graves including the

one of the late Sultan Hussein Shah

Johor of Singapore that passed on in

1835. It was once recognized as State

Mosque until Al-Azim Mosque took

over in 1993. However, it is still the i rst

mosque gazetted as heritage building.

This area was formed in 1931 with

assistance from the British. After

the Dutch defeated the Portuguese

with help from Malays of Johor, the

remaining Portuguese people that

survived were allowed to stay in

Melaka. They managed to live without

relying on anybody for almost 300

years until in 1931, the British colonial

government gazetted an area by the

sea at the end of JalanMerdeka as an

exclusive place for the Portuguese that

lived in Melaka. The area is in Ujung

Pasir, and almost 2000 Portuguese

descendants are living there today. They

have Portuguese lifestyle, especially in

art, food, clothes, speech, and culture.

It can be hard to dif erentiate them

from local Malays just from the looks,

but they always keep their Portuguese

last names such as Gomez, Rodriguez,

DeSilva, and Lazarus.

to start sinking. The people who sailed on the ship

had given all their hopes up and just called God

for help. All of a sudden, a i sh known as Sam Po

jumped onto the ship and covered the crack with

its body, preventing the ship from leaking much

further. This is how the temple got its name.

Sri Poyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple

Not long after the Dutch announced

their permission for the people of

Melaka to have their places of worship,

the Indians began building the i rst

Hindu temple in 1781. Located along

Jalan Tukang Mas, this temple is unlike

any other temples in Malaysia. Other

than having simple architecture, it also

has very few decorative statues of Hindu

Gods and Goddesses. One thing that

makes this temple very special is the

fact that it was built with the same tiles

of the fl oor of Kampung Kling Mosque,

which is just a few steps away. The

temple name is formed from the words

“Sri” as an introduction, “Poyatha” as a

Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum

The Peranakan community began from as early

as the 16th century when migrants came to the

shores of Malaya and intermarried with the locals.

The men were known as Babas and the women

Nyonyas. The Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum was

once home to a Peranakan-Chinese Baba planter

named Chan Cheng Siew who lived in Melaka in

the 1900’s. A family-run private museum, the house

is now open as a living museum and rumah abu

(ancestral home). Teeming with personal treasures

of a bygone era, each room unlocks the cultural

times and living style of the Peranakan-Chinese

community. Today, it is a home to celebrate our

unique cultural diversity of Malaysia.

Melaka is one of Malaysia’s most unassuming states with a good blend of historic

attractions and great food. Melaka is the third smallest Malaysian state after Perlis

and Penang. It is located 150 km south of Kuala Lumpur, exactly located in the

southern region of the Malay Peninsular, next to the Straits of Melaka. It borders

Negeri Sembilan to the north and Johor to the south. This historical city centre has

been listed as a UNESCO world heritage city since 2007. With its appealing and

assorted blend of cultural, multicultural heritage, rich trading history and natural

attractions, there are some key sights you should not miss out when visiting the

81Walking through Melaka, it is really good to start from the beginning of the

heritage city building if you want to see all the key sights. When you begin walking

here, you can see the St. Francis Xavier Church on your left side. The St. Francis

Xavier Church was built in 1856 in honour of St. Francis Xavier, a prominent 16th-

century Catholic missionary. This twin-spired neo-gothic structure was built on

the site of an old Portuguese church. This is very big impressive church between

this small street with old houses and small old shops. When you walk further

along this small street,you will see the old and authentic houses and shops built

by the Dutch, just by looking around you.

Melaka River is just right behind these buildings. This river lows across the

middle of Melaka town. It was once an important trade route during the heyday

of Melaka sultanate in the 15th century. It has lost its function nowadays and

become a tourist attraction. While walking along the river you can see the tourist

boats and you can enjoy the relaxing and serene atmosphere.

On the bridge, on your left side, you will see the Dutch Square with the Dutch

Stadthuys, Christ Church, Victoria Fountain and a windmill. All of these sights

were built by the Dutch, except for the Victoria fountain, which was built to

commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. This fountain is probably

one of the last traces of the British colonial era in Malaysia and it symbolizes the

glorious days of the British colonization in Malaysia in the yesteryears. The four-

sailed windmill instead was built to mark the Dutch occupation in Melaka.

Most of the trishaws are equipped with an audio player to play popular songs

or music of the passenger’s mother tongue. In Malaysia, there are only 2 states

known with trishaws aimed as tourism service which are Penang and Melaka.

However, the trishaws in Melaka are still crowned as the best looking in the

region and sitting on Melaka trishaw for a sightseeing tour

is dei nitely a good experience. As you pass a

landmark while riding the trishaw, the driver

will act as a guide and enlighten you with any

necessary information regarding the landmark

that you see.You will view the Portuguese

port, Porta de Santiago when you walk back

from the Dutch Square. It is among the oldest

surviving European architectural remains in Asia. The

Porta de Santiago, a small gate house, is the only remaining part of the fortress

still standing. Albuquerque had the fortress built around a natural hill near the

sea because he believed that Melaka would become an important port linking

Portugal to the Spice Route in China.

TrishawAround this Dutch square, you could i nd something that is typical to Melaka;

the trishaw. You will be fascinated to see all the colourful decorated trishaws

with l owers, dolls, l ags and lights. In olden days, before the rolling of

industrialization age in Malaysia, trishaw was used as one of the main public

transportation modes by residents in Melaka. Due to the modernization of

lifestyle and popularization of other effi cient transportation alternatives,

trishaw has eventually been phased out from daily life of local residents. Most of

the trishaws in Melaka are mounted with the seat cabin side-by-side. The places

where you can easily i nd trishaw services are Porta de Santiago and Equatorial

Hotel Melaka.

Melakafrom the Top

Located in a popular district of Bandar Hilir along Jalan Merdeka,

only 3 minutes of walking distance from Mahkota Parade Shopping

Complex and Dataran Pahlawan Megamall, there is a tower known

as Menara Taming Sari. It is named after the Taming Sari keris, a

mythical weapon said to possess mystical powers belonging

to the legendary Malay warrior, Hang Tuah. The structure of the

tower follows the shape of the keris, with the peak of the tower

resembling its hilt.

From a height of 80 metres, the ride ofers you a spectacular and

panoramic view of Melaka UNESCO World Heritage City with a

host of interesting sights such as St.Paul’s Hill, Independence

Memorial Building, Samudra Museum and the ship, Flor De La Mar,

DataranPahlawan, PulauSelat Mosque, PulauBesar and the Straits

of Melaka. From here, you will be able to picturehow fast and rapid

has Melaka developed and still developing. Measuring 110 metres

in height, its revolving structure ofers a 360-degree panoramic

view of Melaka town and beyond. The structure of Menara Taming

Sari is reportedly strong enough to withstand earthquakes

measuring up to 10 Richter scale.

The Melaka River . . . . . .Venice Of The East

From its role as a meeting point

between the East and West in the 16th

century, the Melaka River has morphed

into a tourism destination today. Both

locals and foreigners come to soak in

its history from the diverse architecture

found along its banks.

There are old churches, mosques,

bridges, clan houses, warehouses,

temples and villages that have

withstood the test of time. Twenty

years ago, Melaka River was small and

murky, with i shing boats crowding the

river mouth. It was hard to imagine that

this is the same river that attracted the

Portuguese, the Dutch and the British

to build a port and fortress here.

Today, we see it as a modern waterfront

with gardens, a fort, a fountain,

performance stages, breezy walkways

and a large water wheel.

The Melaka River with its cruise is the

biggest surprise. The muddy, murky

water is now quite clear, with a hintof

emerald green. Clean embankments on

both sides stretch for several kilometres.

The river has also been widened and a

mechanical device has been installed to

control the depth of the water. The idea

is to make the river completely pollution-

free, while developing exquisite gardens

on its banks, and pacing the pedestrian

pathways to perfection.

85Passengers on the Melaka River cruise get a

feel of the multi-cultural and historical fabric

of the country. One can even see the Melaka

tree, which Parameswarawas resting under

when he became inspired by the sight of a

mouse deer kicking his dog, and decided to

name the place Melaka.

The 26 ibre-glass boats are named after

historic igures such as Hang Tuah, Hang

Jebat, Munshi Abdullah and Tun Perak.

Passengers are also serenaded with

traditional songs such as dondang sayang.

There are two types of cruises; one ofers

recorded commentaries and the other has

a tour guide on board. The approximate

touring time for Melaka River Cruise is

about 45 minutes (9KM) from the Quayside

Heritage Centre to Taman Rempah,

Pengkalan Rama. The boats are available

daily at every thirty minute intervalof the

following times: 9.30pm to 5pm and 6pm to


A must-see on the cruise is Kampung

Morten, a living museum showcasing a

village that has been around for hundreds

of years. There are private museums here

where one can get a deeper understanding

of the local Malay culture including their

costumes and crafts like embroidery work.

The houses are ine examples of Malay

architecture, with sweeping staircases in

the centre and a veranda where family

members sit in the evenings to enjoy the

air. You can also see the replica of a pirate

ship, the Eye On Malaysia Ferris wheel, the

abandoned Cathay cinema as well as the old

express bus terminal. There is also a replica

of a royal water wheel and a fort, complete

with cannons around the walls.

The cruise boat passes under many bridges

that had important functions in the old days.

The Tan Kim Seng Bridge marks the strategic

place captured by the Portuguese in 1511

when they wanted to occupy Melaka. The

other bridges are Chan Koon Cheng Bridge,

Ghost Bridge of Melaka, Old Market Bridge

and Hang Tuah Bridge.

Jonker Walkat Night

If you are going back to Tan Kim Seng Bridge from Menara Taming Sari, you will

pass by Jonker Street;one of the “must-go” places in Melaka. On Friday and Saturday

nights, Jalan Hang Jebat is closed for traffi c and turned into the Jonker Walk Night

Market. Don’t forget to try the Famosa Chicken Rice Ball once you are here. This

place comes alive at night when the seafood restaurants open and people l ock

here for an al fresco dinner. During weekends, the common entertainment here

includes Portuguese music and dancing on the outdoor stage. Just kick back, relax

and enjoy the delicious seafood with the sunset.

Tourist night markets were set up about three decades ago as an alternative for

small-time traders to sell their goods in the evening. They have become a very

prominent feature of Malaysian shopping. Jonker Walk is popular for its weekend

night market stalls, which attracts tourists and local people alike to spend their

weekend nights there. If you are planning to spend an hour there before hopping

to another major attraction, think twice as it is not an ordinary ‘street’. One can

spend a whole day there just to check out the attractive shops along the street.

This is the place where you can i nd shops selling unique antique, carved

woodenstatues, interior and household products, fashionable clothes and

colourful accessories. The antique stores here display artefacts from various areas

of the colonial rule- British, Dutch and Portuguese. If you have enough time to

head through the street and you have good eyes for hunting and bargaining for

unique and worthy antique furniture, money notes, coins, lamps, beds, cast iron

and other priceless Buddha effi gies, then this is the place to be. Promised to get

some nice souvenirs of Melaka for friends? Here is the best place to source some

unique souvenirs without having to burn a hole in your pocket.

One of the many reasons why Malaysia is

such a unique country is because of the

existence of cultural diversity formed by the

country’s people of diferent races. These

unique cultural practices give a more in-

depth insight for tourists and locals to get

to know more about the races found here

in Malaysia. Melaka with its cultural diversity

is an artist in its soul. We are all created

to create something new and inspiring;

something that will change us, and change

the world, make it better and reveal its true

sense and meaning.

Beauty Of Art

4_BeautyOfArt.indd 87 6/14/2013 5:46:50 PM

Page 63: Brochure Melaka


Performing Art was originally used to describe any live artistic event that included

poets, musicians, fi lm makers, etc. - in addition to visual artists. If you weren’t around

during the 1960’s, you missed a vast array of “Happenings,” “Events” and Fluxus

“concerts,” to name just a few of the descriptive words that were used. By 1970,

Performance Art was a global term, and its defi nition a bit more specifi c.

“Performance Art” meant that it was live, and it was art, not theatre. Performance Art

also meant that it was art that could not be bought, sold or traded as a commodity.

Actually, the latter sentence is of major importance. Performance artists saw (and

see) the movement as a means of taking their art directly to a public forum, thus

completely eliminating the need for galleries, agents, brokers, tax accountants and

any other aspect of capitalism. It’s a sort of social commentary on the purity of

art. Since Performance Art is live, no two performances are ever exactly the same.

Additionally, the 1989’s saw the rise of the autobiography being incorporated into a

performance piece and so the Bridged Seni Cultural Tripe was established. This kind

of story-telling is much more entertaining to most people. The autobiographical

pieces are also a great platform for presenting one’s views on social causes or issues.

Performance Art may be entertaining, amusing, shocking or horrifying. No matter

which adjective applies, it is meant to be memorable.

The defi nition of fi ne art is “a visual art considered to have been created primarily

for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness, specifi cally,

painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolour, graphics, and architecture. Historically,

the fi ve greater fi ne arts were painting, sculpture, architecture, music and poetry,

with minor arts including drama and dancing. Today, the fi ne arts commonly

include the visual art and performing art forms, such as painting, sculpture, collage,

assemblage, installation, calligraphy, music, dance, theatre, architecture, fi lm,

photography, conceptual art and printmaking. The term is still often used outside

of the arts to denote when someone has perfected an activity to a very high level of

theskill. Metaphorically, one might say that ‘they have master dancing to the level

of a ‘fi ne art’.

89Dondang Sayang

Wayang Peranakan was only performed

and became a staple of Peranakan

culture in the 1910's. This was a period

when Peranakans were exposed to

the movies of Hollywood and wanted

to have their own theatre fi asco with

Peranakan elements. As women were

not allowed out of the house as it was

considered a taboo for women to be

seen on stage, men instead played the

roles of women in a kind of gender

reversal role. Until this very day plays

in Peranakan Wayang still retain this

old tradition though women are now

allowed on stage to perform roles.

However the role of the family matriarch

is always and mostly given to a man.

Wayang Peranakan

Joget is a traditional Malay dance

that originated in Melaka. One of

the most popular types of Joget is

called “Joget Lambak” and usually

performed by a large crowd together

in social functions. It was infl uenced

by the Portuguese dance of Branyo

which is believed to have been spread

to Melaka during the spice trade. In

Melaka, it is better known as ‘Cha

Kun Chak’. The dance is one of the

most popular folk dances in Malaysia

and normally performed by couples

in cultural festivals, weddings and

other social functions. Joget is a great

example how elements from various

cultures can merge into one single


Joget Lambak

Serampang Laut

This dance involves coordination

between the hands and feet as well

as between both male and female.

The basic hand movement is called an

‘incomplete fi st’ where the tips of the

thumb and forefi nger on both hands

touch each other and the remaining

fi ngers are curled in. The female dancers

keep their elbows low to portray

elegance while the male dancers keep

them high as a symbol of strength.


Branyo has been an integral part of

the Melakian Portuguese festival of

Introdu since the early 16th century.

This dance is mainly favored by the

older generation of the Portuguese

descendants. The male dancers wear

costume known as ‘Sanian‘ while

the female dancers wear ‘Sarung

Kebaya’. Musical instruments used

are only rebana and violin. The

beat and rhythm of the dance is

similar to 'joget' (the Malay dance

arts). This dance was developed

within the Portuguese settlement

in Melaka some 500 years ago.

DondangSayang literally is a form of

singing poems, an art accompanied by

its own unique orchestra, originated in

Melaka sometime in the 15th century,

infl uenced by traditional Portuguese

folk music. A typical group is made

up of 4 musicians who perform on

the violin, 2 rebana and a gong or

tetawak. The chief musician is usually

the violinist who plays a primary role in

dondangsayang, providing a counter

melody to the vocal melody. Musicians

may switch instruments in between

performances, but the violinist seldom

does, although this is permitted. If there

are musicians to spare, up to 5 rebana

may be used. Sometimes, the rebana

may be substituted with the tambourine

and barrel drum or even the kompang.

Handicrafts have been around since man’s earliest days in accordance with the

prevailing environmental conditions. The fi rst examples were necessities such as

protection or coverings. Handicrafts were later improved and adapted according

to environmental conditions, eventually becoming “traditional” and accepted as an

art that refl ects the artistic sense, feelings and cultural characteristics of a society.

Traditional Melaka’s handicraft can be classifi ed in few cultures such as Malay, Chinese,

Indian, Portuguese, Chitty and Baba Nyonya. Architecture, whose origins lie in a need

to provide permanent shelter, has also changed and adapted in accordance with

local environmental conditions. This development led to wood carving gaining its

unique characteristics during the western conquered period. Arts and Crafts objects

were simple in form, without superfl uous or excessive decoration, and how they were

constructed was often still visible. They tended to emphasize the qualities of the

materials used (“truth to material”). They often had patterns inspired by British fl ora

and fauna and used the vernacular, or domestic, traditions of the British countryside.

Traditional Art & Crafts


Gasing or Tops Spinning is a traditional game popular among Malay (Native people).

It is largely played by the villagers in Melaka. Each

season after the rice harvest, several villagers

will come together to challenge each other in an

ultimate test of skill. The villagers believe that the

spinning tops would help bring good harvest.

Both adults and children can play the game, but

bigger or giant top spinning is more of a game for

adults than children. The ones used by adults are

much bigger in size and can spin for a period of

time whereas the ones played by kids are much

smaller. Gasing Melaka known as Gasing Jantung

and Gasing Berembang.

Rebana is a Malay tambourine that

is used in Islamic devotional music

in Southeast Asia, particularly in

Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, and

Singapore. The sound of Rebana

often accompanies Islamic ritual

such as the Zikir.

Kompang / GendangClay

Operating a ceramic shop is yet to be

another labour of love art when craftsmen

produce clays souvenirs. In Melaka, located

in the heritage town ensconced a little

clay man house producing fi ne clay pieces

such as lamps, tea cups, kettles, fl ower

vases, miniature traditional houses, incense

burners and many other types of clay art. The

intense labour well described on the carved

designs with variety of unique shapes and

motifs including apple resemblance art,

pumpkins and even butternut squashes.

Besides souvenirs, many of er ‘clay-making’

classes at a reasonable fee.

91Wooden Clogs (Terompah)

Beaded Shoes

Bound Feet Shoes

Rattan & Mengkuang Weaving Products

Nyonya Beaded Shoe is an artistic

hand craft and heritage of the Baba

Nyonya culture rooted in Melaka in the

20th century. Vintage kasut manik are

intricate with fi ne stitches as a testimony

to the fi ne workmanship of yesteryears.

The intricacy and fi ne workmanship of a

pair of beaded slipper is also a hallmark

of highly accomplished Peranakan

women, also known as Nyonyas, whose

skills in embroidery and beadwork are

highly valued. The beaded slippers

were worn by both the Peranakan

males (Baba) and females (Nyonya) and

were popular in the 1930’s.

The practice of foot binding began

in the tenth century by parents who

wanted their daughters to get noticed

by wealthy men of higher social status.

For them, this is a ticket for a better life

because having tiny feet for women

signifi ed beauty. Foot binding usually

began at age four. A ten-foot-long, two-

inch bandage was wrapped around the

toes to force them in against the sole.

Each day the bandage was tightened

until the foot was folded under with only

the big toe sticking out, a shape called

the “Golden Lotus” because it resembled

a lotus pod with the petals removed.

Looking at the materials and shapes of

the woven products, initially the craft is

created with emphasis on usage more

than anything else. As skills developed,

this concept has changed, especially

the art of weaving mats, where several

types of kelarai are made into decorative

pieces. Skill is needed to make kelarai

and the experts in this art have begun

to realize the concept of beauty and

aesthetics. Kelarai or ragi are named

and shaped after fl owers, bamboo as

well as other rural elements or pursuits.

A clog is a type of footwear made in part

or completely from wood. Clogs are used

worldwide and although the form may

vary by culture, within a culture the form

often remained unchanged for centuries.

Traditional clogs were often worn in

heavy labour. Today they remain in use

as protective clothing in agriculture

and in some factories and mines.

92 Wooden Water Bucket

Handmade wooden water bucket has

been in the country for many years.

Most craftsmen started it as a leisure

hobby but due to high demand in

recent days, it had to be a day to

day routine for these craftsmen to

produce a few daily. Making wooden

barrels is a painstaking, labour

intensive task. Most craftsmen could

only make a barrel a day, for which

they sell at around RM90 per bucket.

All barrels are made of high quality

woods which are made for long-

lasting usage and can be kept for

good for years!

Stone Stamps Carving

This is a piece of personalized art with

name engraved for lifetime in Chinese

character translation. It also served as

an ancient documentation seal. It is

important in business in China (often

required for signing offi cial documents).

Variations of stones are available for

personal preference from plain stone

to fancier stone with motifs of dragon,

tigers and other warrior animals in

Chinese tradition. At a decent price,

a piece of art on your own is worth as

souvenirs for own self.


Lanterns may also be used for

signalling, as 'torches', or as general

light sources outdoors during the

ancient days. The term "lantern" is also

used more generically to mean a 'light

source' or the enclosure for a light

source. The simplest technology used

is the candle lantern. Candles give only

a weak light, and must be protected

from wind to prevent fl ickering or

complete extinguishment. A typical

candle lantern is a metal box or

cylinder with glass or mica side panels

and an opening or ventilated cover on

the top.

93Copper / PewterIron & Steel SmithPewter is a malleable metal alloy,

traditionally 85–99% tin, with the

remainder consisting of copper,

antimony, bismuth and sometimes,

less commonly today, lead. Silver is also

sometimes used. Copper and antimony

act as hardeners while lead is common

in the lower grades of pewter, which has

a bluish tint. Melaka pewter craftsmen

only made pewter in small scale and

concentrating on traditional motif in term

of pewter design. Melaka made pewter

can be found in many tourist spots

such as Banda Hilir, Stadhuys Complex,

Melaka Sentral and Dataran Pahlawan.

Iron is one of the most useful metals

ever discovered, but it is also one of

the diffi cult metals to understand

in history, especially in medieval

history. Iron comes in several forms,

and the complication involved in

producing each of them fosters

further confusion. However, these

are just subsidiary as the handmade

iron and steel household still remain

inherited by generation. Despite the

demand of these items decreasing

due to the presence of plastic wares

and modern appliances, these

handmade steel products still remain

in better quality with longer lifespan.

Malay Sandals (Capal)

These sandals come in dif erent

shapes and sizes for all and are often

worn by the Malay men to complete

their traditional Malay attire called

Baju Melayu. Common classical Malay

attire for men consists of a baju (shirt)

or tekua (a type of a long sleeve shirt),

baju rompi (vest), kancing (button), a

small leg celana (trousers), a sarong

worn around the waist, capal (sandal),

and a tanjak or tengkolok (headgear).

Baju Melayu is commonly worn during

special celebrations or occasions such

as weddings and prayers.

Wooden Carving

Kampong Morten is a well-known place

housing professional wood carvers in

Melaka. Besides producing traditional

Malay decorative fi ne wood items,

they also produce wooden sheaths for

keris. A keris can be divided into three

parts: bilah (blade), hulu (hilt), and

warangka (sheath). These parts of the

keris are objects of art, often carved

in meticulous detail and made from

various materials, metal, precious or

rare types of wood, or gold or ivory.

Wood carving often needs professional

skill to produce a high quality carving

and most are sold at higher price.

Outdoor recreation or outdoor activity is

a leisure pursuit engaged in the outdoors,

especially in (but not limited to) natural or

semi-natural settings out of town. The two

primary purposes for outdoor recreation

are bene� cial use and pleasurable


Pleasurable appreciation encourages

experiences of being “let in on nature’s

show”. Enhancement of inner perceptual

and/or spiritual life may be experienced

through outdoor and outdoor-related

activities such as nature study, aesthetic

contemplation, meditation, painting,

photography, archaeological or historical

research, and indigenous culture among

others. These activities may also be

physically rewarding. Many people

in modern civilizations believe that

the value of nature is found only in its

“utilitarian value” (bene� cial use). They

would discount the inner perceptual and/

or spiritual bene� ts of the “intrinsic value

of nature” that may be experienced during

pleasurable appreciation.

Outdoor activities may also be pursued

for the purposes of � nding peace in

nature, enjoying life, and relaxing. They

are alternatives to expensive forms of

tourism. Outdoor activities are also

frequently used as a medium in education

and teambuilding.

Bullock Cart was one of the earliest

forms of transportation in the country

when there were no motor vehicles at

that time. People used bullock cart as

a mode of travelling and transporting

goods. Traditionally, bulk quantities of

agricultural products like paddy and

straw were transported using bullock

carts. Evidenced from a woven roof, it

is believed that bullock carts were said

to have been introduced by Indian

traders during the Melaka Sultanate.

Klebang Beach o� ers a vast sandy

area for people to sun themselves.

There is very little shade here, and so

it is advisable to bring a parasol or

other form of shades, or perhaps apply

some sunblock lotion. The authorities

over recent years attempted to plant

some pine trees to create a more

shaded area, but this will take a few

years to develop naturally. Whilst all

the major beach type activities are

possible here, one extremely popular

activity at Klebang Beach is kite

� ying. People of all ages love � ying

kites both big and small; it is just the

perfect place to catch the breeze.

Recreational team building is ‘mild’ form

of team building. Its focus is general in

nature such as building or strengthening

employee rapport and improving team

communication. It can be a substitute for

sta� retreat and performance incentive.

Team building has been de� ned and

viewed from many di� erent perspectives

by theoretical gurus. Some simply de� ne

it as “a facilitated intervention that

enhances organizational e� ectiveness

and goals through the enhancement of

individual role clarity and teaming skills.”

This means that it involves any form

of facilitated activity that requires the

members to perform cohesively with

one another. Tasik Ayer Keroh, which is

operated by REDTMA is easily accessible

after Ayer Keroh toll exit. It facilitates rock

climbing, Kayaking, Flying Fox, Jungle

Trekking, River crossing, Paintball, Zorball

and even night activities are available.

Malaysian food is as rich as its history.

During our exploration of the heritage

sites in Melaka, we got a chance to

experience Peranakan Cuisine where it

originated from Melaka. Recipes dating

as far back as the 15th century still

exist, evolving to what is now known

as Nyonya Cuisine. In a restaurant

tucked beside the hidden side street

of Taman Melaka Raya, we found

Seroni Nyonya Cuisine Restaurant.

And with that reputation, you are sure to

have a fair share of lovers and haters. With

layman descriptions in Malaysian’s context,

satay celup is served and eaten like lok-

lok and steamboat, except the main

diff erence in sauce. Instead of a boiling pot

Shop in Style

Melaka is most famous for its sale of antiques when it comes to shop-ping. However, there is a � ne balance with modern shopping malls. Besides, designer brands, handicrafts and cultural souvenirs are also found in abundance, so you'll always have something to bring home for remembrance. Aside from the merchandise at mega shopping malls like Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan where prices are � xed, it’s time to walk out to Jonker Walk for more bargains.

Browsing through Melaka’s diverse blend of shopping venues is somewhat of an exhausting activity. However if you’ve got a yen to pick up some truly authentic Melaka souvenirs, this tiny town is the best place to do it. Some of the items you can get here include Nyonya ‘wooden clogs’, bound feet shoes, handmade tiles, charms, crystals, antiques and many others handicrafts.

The historical city o� ers not only history but all day long shopping experience!
