Melaka, Malaysia

Visited Melaka for a few days, which is slightly similar to Penang where I have been staying as it is an old colonial town and port.  It was ran by the Portugese, Dutch then the British Empires over the last millennium.  Nowadays it is a pleasant touristy town upon the river with evening market on Jonker Street and local 'nonya' food cuisine, a blend of malay and chinese local to the area.
Here is popiah, a giant fresh spring roll:
Bicycle rickshaws are still common transport but more for tourists than locals I think:
