Whenever I go to Malacca, I will always go to this wonderful place for antiques lovers called, Jonker Street. It's a place filled with all sort of curiosities and a great way to find vintage items.  I bought some blue China wares, antiques from the 30's onwards but did not take a picture. Will post that soon.  

Here are a collection of entrances which I found interesting. 

Also it's an entry for my Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors post. 

Some Chinese cutting inspired drawing framing a window. 

The famous Chicken rice shop!

Now this is an interesting item. It's a antique carrier for brides in olden China, hence the red cloth. Here seen outside an antique shop.

Translated meaning: Hokkien Association.

Plenty of Chinese antiques vases everywhere.

Most of the buildings are from that era. Previously houses which have been well preserved and made into shop lots now.

Another typical entrance.

With Chinese traders dominating the Straits of Malacca then, their influence in heavy in many places.

With that, have a happy weekend everyone :)
