Malacca – Old and New

We left Malacca days ago, but I am finally writing. It is quite the Malaysian town, and quite historic with its 500 year history. After getting UNESCO world heritage status, the visitors began coming. Now, the local advertisers have begun to exploit the opportunities, and the place is getting a surreal combination of old and new. Take for example the Mr. Potato (aka Pringles) signage as you enter the historic area. Asia is full of such contrasts.
