Another one of my interests is travel and since I started working I have traveled to several local and international destinations already. Starting today, I'll share with you most of them as I try to reminisce the days of those wonderful travel then and now.

One of the places that is similar to that of the Philippines within Southeast Asia would have to be Malaysia. And when you're in Malaysia, you should not miss out on visiting Melaka. Melaka or Malacca is the third smallest state of Malaysia. This historical site has been enlisted by UNESCO as a World Heritage site since 2008.

Melaka is home to the Anglican church - Christ Church. This is one of the main architectural wonders of this city. It boasts of its original Dutch architecture and houses some of the best hand crafted benches made for churches. It also has joint ceiling skylights a copper replica of the Bible, a headstone written in the Armenian language, and a replica of "The Last Supper".

Another church that is a landmark of this place is St. Paul's church which pretty much has remains only left at the top of a semi-hill. The structures of old stones can be felt on the walls of the church and really shows how old the structure has been.

All around Melaka, you'll see several ruins, structures and a bountiful set of flowers, trees and greenlife. A lot of history can be told in this relatively small city, from the different churches, museums, colorful streets and even to the souvenirs all abound the place. This place is a rare spot people come. When we say Malaysia, we just usually equate it with the towers but it is great to point out that there are other places in Malaysia that is worth visiting and Melaka is one of those.
