Down to Memory Lane II

Previously from HERE

We continue to Maritime Museum is housed in a replica of the Flor de la Mar, a Portuguese vessel that sank off the coast of Melaka. Admittance fee only RM3 + charge which i don't remember exactly if you want to bring a camera with and you will be given a plastic bag to storage your shoes since no shoes is allowed when entering the museum.
Flor de la Mar ship
Inside the museum not merrier mostly a models of ships, maps and old iron chests so the only interesting about this museum is the ship itself. The replica is quite awesome with the details and if you walk-in inside you might feel like be in a real ship minus the sea and the pirate. If you stand on the deck you will feel the wind blowing from Melaka river that located only beside this ship. The museum has pictorial displays of the history of Melaka, beginning from the Sultanate of Melaka in the 14th century to pre-independence era. 
The golden old guy with the gun is supposed to be Alfonso d'Albuquerque
Cross the road is a market, this is the place you can buy local souvenirs and local foods with a good price and plus the people here is very friendly and always smiling, it's like a warm welcoming you there. I buy a beautiful hat for only for RM8.00, that is very good deal!
its 35°C on that day, wearing a hat is relevant
