Malaysia: Melaka - 600 Years of Tradition

Malaysia: Melaka - 600 Years of Tradition

South of Kuala Lumpur, on Malaysia's southern coast, the busy port city of Melacca is a treasure of history dating back over 600 years. Here one finds the unmistakable mix of China, Holland, Portugal and Malay in its architecture, culture and food. Host Sian Richards and her guide, Rajan, utilize the best way to tour the town, on a pedal-driven trishaw, and see a 16th-century church and the 17th-century residence of the Dutch governor, one of the largest Dutch buildings in all of Southeast Asia, which today is a museum housing Dutch artifacts. In the secret garden of Hotel Puri she meets Chef Rickey and learns how to prepare two local favorites: chicken rice balls and Chicken Pong Teh (chicken with bean curd sauce, potatoes and turnips), a Peranakan dish. Her friend and restaurant owner, Danny, guides her around Jonker Street, which is famous for its antiques. Then she sees the process involved in the fine Asian art of brush calligraphy. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
