Proclamation of Independence Memorial, Malacca

As it was not time to check-in to the hotel yet, we decided to go for some "exercise". Auntie CY family decided to go "hill climbing".

We decided to hide some where cooler. It was a very hot day. We went to the "Proclamation of Independence Memorial" nearby.

 Wahh....that's "Tunku" in the car.

Interesting display. Press then got sound telling me what was happening then

 Come on...let's go.

 Wow...ships...the old Portuguese and other trade ships.

 EEEeee....this part I don't like. It's scary.

Don't snap photo. Scary Japanese sword

Banana Tree Money that were used during Japanese Occupation of Malaya. Got the name from the Banana Tree printed there. According to history, these money was worthless near the end of Japanese Occupation. Had to have a gunny sack full of this just to buy a bag of rice.


 Various literature on display

Wow...really old book. Written using old Malay spelling. Even Mamarazzi had hard time understanding that.


 Going upstairs? Don't want la. Papa not going. Upstairs looked dark work. Scary


  
Mmm.....it was scary for me. Scene of fighting against some parties...don't know whether its Japanese or Communist.


 
We walked past this section pretty fast. Did not bother to rad what's written there.


 Another scene of discussion about Malaya Independence. 

 Don't know what is this.

If not mistaken, these were one of the first ballot boxes

 Uiks...square coins?

 That coin is cute.

Wow...this one is really old money

 The Independence Table?

Such humble piece. Mamarazzi thought it would have been grander. Well, all must begin small. Even our nation.
Hmm..that's all? Time to roam outside.

 How many flags were there?

 Mamarazzi asked me to pose for the photo...and here is how I pose.

...and like this.....nice ka?

Overall, it was an eye opening experience for Mamarazzi being at the Memorial. She has never been in the Memorial. She felt that the place was rather eerie as it was very quiet there. It would be a much comfortable experience if the Management had put on some soothing music.

  18. I had a run up to our historical background during my trip to this same place. So much knowledge and infor I learned and gathered too. Only than I realised that I should discover more on my own country at times rather than going for holiday overseas.
