Sept 1st was a good day to be away. So many things happened just to be away. The main draw was an over night stay in Padang Kemunting to do a wee bit of work with the Turtle Information and Conservation Centre' Melaka.
We car - pooled and Mary was a willing driver, took us safely there and we had good company with Mo too. We came to learn more about the Hawksbill turtles and went home with the promise to do more to save our turtles.
Will post about the turtles soon. In the meantime, do enjoy our jaunt in and around Melaka.
|Yummy fish, asam pedas style for dinner, under a huge tree with melodious keroncong music in the background; kids nearby on bumper cars illuminated with neon lights.|
|Some fisher men were trawling with nets shaped like a triangle in the coastal waters. Curious, I came up t examine their catch - shrimps.|
|I wonder. .. Those invoices, orders, ledgers etc . Too many to recall. All bundled and stacked . Who needs a computer? ?|
|The prize for going out to fish. Under watchful eyes, the man cut the fish and took out the entrails.|
|Beach at Padang Kemunting was lively and not short of pinickers. They were enjoying the sea breeze, set up tents and families were tucking in their home -prepared food.|
|A house opposite where we had drinks before our programme for the turtles began. Many Malaysian flags were fluttering as our nation had just celebrated our 55th Merdeka on 31Aug. Happy Merdeka to all Malaysians!|
|On the way home to KL, the stalls by the roadside are an attraction. Basketry in the form of food cover, kitchen utility ware, rocking chair, etc . Mo wanted Melaka food specialities to give away. Cincaluk was on her mind.|
