The store

Buy local stuff!

Many people go to Melaka to eat, walk, take pictures and to buy! What can you buy in Melaka?

Many things!!

For one, you can get some local stuff like the dried food -- mee sua (noodles), gula melaka (coconut sugar). Usually we go to this store for them: Chop Chua Soon Huat. We find their prices reasonable and the selection is great. You can also get other stuff like the kueh kueh (local desserts). Walk around and try those samples and buy only when you think you like them. Those freshly baked cakes/pastry are very nice but you have to be selective as there are many stores selling them.

Walk around the jonker street area and you will surprise yourself with many stores that sell things like knives, nets, net-bags etc. We usually relate such stores and products as our 70's things. So such stores are nostalgic.
