We went to Stadthuys or The Red Square, the historical structure situated in the heart of Malacca Town behind the Queen Victoria's Fountain for the last part of our weekend getaway. The Fountain was completely built in 1901 by British to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty's reign.
Later, we climbed up to St. Paul's Church ruin at the top of St. Paul's Hill, which was originally called Malacca Hill.
The ruins simply reminded me of my last trip to Ruins of St. Paul's in Macau.
I was caught spell bounded with a lady who dresses like ancient traveller and the old Portuguese tombstones in the church ruins. As the quote by Marcus Aurelius goes, the soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts. She def added some colours to my historical journey in the ruins.
I really would love to visit Malacca again! Thanks for the getaway. :)
