Panmnesia: Journey into Melaka


One of the handful of states in Malaysia that I enjoy visiting is Melaka. Plenty of vegetation, multi-racial cuisine and friendly people despite the bizarre nature of the state government and twisted sense of politics. I have friends here, along with the swarm of relatives in one village or another. Its so unlike the rat-race of Bangkok or Jakarta, far removed from Kuala Lumpur’s stagnation. Once in a while, its good to be away from any urban hell.
