Photo Diary: Malacca

Over the weekend I went to a lovely little town in the south-west of Malaysia called Malacca. I was lucky enough to take some wannabe pro-photographer photos at this UNESCO world heritage site. Sorry about the overwhelming amounts of red, it is Chinese new year after all :) 

A board outside a cute little cafe.

Last lantern photo, promise.

Candle part 1

Candle part 2

When I lit some incense sticks the ash blew all over my hand. It burned. Badly. 

I love these.

This is probably the best Carlsberg ad I have ever seen, now 'that calls for a Carlsberg.'

There was this incredibly long row of houses along the river and all of them had painted murals similar to this one on them.

No, this is not real gold. It was way to cheap

Absolutely wonderful photographs.
Fanny enough I have been looking for blue and red together. I couldn´t believe it when I came to visit your blog.
With your permission, I will be using the pic of the blue background and red lantern and link it back to you in my next post.
