We walked into one of the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum which is a private museum whichexhibits some beautiful and unique Baba and Nyonya heritage.
It has quite a bit of display of the Baba Nyonya furnitures and housewares.
We had lunch at a nearby Nyonya restaurant.
This restaurant was on the map that Baba House provided us.
We ordered two dishes to share. The above is Chicken Ponteh. It is a chicken dish cooked with potatoes and mushroom and flavoured with fermented soy bean and gula Melaka. The sauce goes great with steam rice. (more…)
We stayed in Baba House which is within walking distance to most of the major attractions.
The parking lot of Baba House is at the rear. We did have some trouble getting to the rear due to misunderstanding the map which the receptionist provided us.
The Baba House features nyonya archicture and furnishings. One thing we noticed about houses here is that they are narrow and long/deep.
This is where breakfast is served. (more…)
