Exploring The Historic City of Malacca With Our 2 Babies [PICS]

Today is a public holiday for all Malaysians because it is Wesak Day. Hence both my wife and I don't have to work. As we wanted to have a memorable day today, we decided to pay some of the historical sites in Malacca a visit. It was a lovely day to say the least with both our babies in bubbly mood. The weather was cloudy, which was really perfect for us to be walking around in the heritage sites. So off we headed to meet "history" face-to-face...to roam around in the heart of the Historic City of Malacca. :)

Let go mommy. Hurry up!

We parked our car opposite the newly-built Casa Del Rio hotel. All of us were really excited with this expedition of ours, especially Jordan boy. He was so eager to walk around on his own...of course we had to hold him tightly. We walked along the Malacca river, overlooking the famous water mill. Jordan was curious when he looked at the river. Perhaps this was his first time seeing the river from such a close distance. Soon we were walking across the bridge looking not without looking at the people lining up to eat chicken rice balls. Ha :D

We have arrived at our first destination-Malacca Fort.

So our first historic contact of the day was the Malacca Fort. It is a majestic fort which was rebuilt 4 years ago. We brought both of babies to explore the "inside" of the fort where canons were waiting to be fired. Jordan was ecstatic to look at those Dutch canons. After a while, we went to admire the Queen Victoria's Fountain which is just in front of the red Stadhuys building. Again Jordan boy was really happy to look at the fountain. Why? Because he wanted to play with the water...in the end...we had to drag...yes DRAG Jordan boy away from the fountain. Ha :D

So this how they used to bake bread huh?

We left our final historic footprints at...can you guess? The Stadhuys Museum. My wife and I thought it would be really fun and not to mention very educational for both our babies to explore the enormous Stadhuys Museum. Entrance  fee for both of us adult was RM5 each. It was worth it. Jordan enjoyed walking around the whole museum humming to his favourite Incy Wincy Spider song; likewise Jasmine loved being carried by mommy dearest. There were so many artifacts, historical document etc. to look at. I have snapped at least 200 photos in the museum. Awesome!

It's time to go home. Shhh...she is tired. :)

This exploration of ours took around 2 hours. My wife and I decided to call it a day as both our babies are tired, especially little Jasmine. We walked back to our car and off we headed home. On our way home we made a detour and bought the famous coconut shake to slurp on. Haha :D We really love our historical outing today. Although we were only "loitering" around, we really enjoyed the time we spent together as a family. :)
