Return to Malacca

We made another trip to Malacca and this time we stayed at another heritage boutique hotel, Courtyard @ Heeren.

The entrance from the back where we parked our car

The lobby area with beautiful antique furniture
and a lovely water garden below the staircase I'm standing on

Curtains separated the sleeping area from the rest of the room.
Each room is individually decorated, so every room is unique.

Beds were simply mattresses on a raised platform
which reminded me of the 'balay' that my grandma used.

The side table

One of the many beautiful court-yards in the super-long house
that brought in the natural light.

Long corridors that showed the original brick work of the walls

We saw gaudily decorated trishaws along one of the lanes
off Jonker Street

Sis said that mom would have been so pleased that I've finally found my nyonya roots.
