I’m not a morning person. I’m always cranky and groggy in the morning, but I had quite a wonderful hydro therapy in the jacuzzi the night before and my sleep was pretty much peaceful in Bayou Lagoon Park Resort. Following the wake up call from the hotel as early as 5.30am for the Subuh prayer, I was all hyped up by 7.30am. We had a simple breakfast at the hotel and head over to our first destination of the day, Melaka Craft Centre.
We reached at about 10am and arrived just in time to witness the Melaccan folks having gotong-royong to clean up the place. 🙂 it is so nice to see how united they are in keeping the place clean and well-kept.
Melaka Craft Centre exists to promote the local handicraft to the international market. Tourist may find all kind of handicrafts like pewter, batiks, top spinning, rattan, beaded shoes and many more at very reasonable price. Our time there was pretty limited. I did not make any purchases but let’s take a look on what they have in details, shall we?
Fashionable one of it’s kind Batik Bag. I bet any ladies would stand out in the crowd should she accessories herself with these. The price tag was RM150. Quite affordable for a unique piece, don’t you think? 😉
Beautifully carved jewelry box.
Neatly woven rattan basket
Coffee table set
Dining table set
Beautiful handcraft cradle for babies. Lovely, aren’t they? Apart from feasting our eyes on those beautiful furniture and crafts, we were also given a chance to try our hands on batik painting.
