Hi all….as we know, last 7th of July 2008, Melaka was finally got the UNESCO heritage list as a world heritage city, together with the Georgetown, Penang. As the Melakan people, I can’t stop to be so proud and hopefully Melaka will become the most amazing tourist destination in the world. These two states have become the Malaysia’s first cultural heritage sites. The Melaka government with their full commitment has do a lot to achieve this and the effort are still going strong.
Preserving all the over 500 years of treasure are not only for the sake of tourism but for the people of future – Our Child. From this initiative, we hope for 500 years again people can still walk at the same pedestrian walk way in Jonker Street as it is now. Protect our unique heritage while we can.
Just read the KLIA times make me spirited away about heritage. Below is the excerpt :-
“The Malacca Heritage Trusts President Debbie Lee said the inscription marked the beginning of a new phase in conservation and preservation work. The authorities must now ensure that the city’s intrinsic cultural heritage and monuments are protected and preserved through implementation and enforcement of proper policies and guidelines”.
