Christ Church of Melaka was constructed in 1741 and completed  in 1753 during Dutch occupation.

Located opposite to Stadthuys, the former official residence for the Dutch government,

Christ Church Melaka were constructed manually even the pews and windows.

This magnificent building still stand strong until now since 257 years ago.

Oh! By the way,  the total number of the fishes around Crocodile on yesterday post was TEN! :)

I don’t know how JuneZach counted as 11, maybe he got infrared vision to see through the murky water! :D

Located at Melaka riverbank, Melaka Sultanate Watermill was built in late 2007 and completed by March 2008. It has been recorded as the first and the largest watermill ever in Malaysia. The cost of this 13-meter watermill was about RM1.5 million.

The structures were built based upon the Islamic technology found in both Syria as well as Lijiang in China.

Took this magnificent Water Mill while with my stomach on the floor. Thank God it was clean and dry back there :)

Sunrise Peak or Seongsan Ilchubong is one of UNESCO Wold Heritage located at Jeju Island.  It is a volcanic crater with vertical cliffs rises up from the shore.  It was named “Sunrise Peak” because this area is the first to greet each day’s new sun.  To enjoy the beautiful sceneries we have to climb to the top of the peak.  Jagged rocks stick up like teeth along the crater’s perimeter.  According to locals, there are 99 rocks, but I didn’t count when I managed to reach the peak.  Let’s enjoy the panoramic view of the surrounding area.

The picture below is my favorite.  The rocks look like an Indian Chief head in cowboy movie.  What do you think?
