    Light & Sound Show: Light and sound spectacular

    by mansionion Updated Apr 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first ever light and sound project in South East Asia, Melaka's Light and Sound Show is modelled after similar shows held at other historical places around the world such as the Egyptian Pyramid at Gaza, the Acropolis at Athens and the Red Fort at Delhi.

    The show is said to be among the best way to learn up the history of Melaka where significant events in Melaka's history - from the Melaka Sultanate period, its colonial days until independance - are enacted by means of lights, narrative dialogue, music and sound effects to project real-life drama. It is highly educational yet entertaining, a good orientation for visitors of Melaka to understand the city's history and culture.

    Operating Hours : 8.30 pm nightly
    Entrance Fee : Rm10.00 (Adults) and RM2.00 (Children)

    Peppermint Bistro: After 12?

    by savitha Written Jan 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Melaka Night life starts really late, even on a weekend...
    Walking into the clubs at 12midnite and not finding a crowd seemed alien to me as I was used to the KL clubbing scene (although I've also retired from that scene for some time!)

    Nevertheless, when the crowd started coming in, the tables turned and we had a blast at Peppermint...

    DJ played a good mix of R&B, club mix, pop and rock...A good mix of music..

    Dress Code: Wear what you want..No bouncer is going to throw you out... heheeh

    Outdoor Karaoke Anyone ?

    by yipsufen Updated Aug 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the famous activities or favourite pastimes for the Malaccan folks seem to be outdoor Karaoke. Along the Jonker Walk, you can see Chinese Association holding Karaoke singing sessions. Bring your own CD and just pay a small fee, you can sing to your heart's content. If you are curious, sit down at the ample seats and enjoy their high-pitch singing of chinese oldies from the 1940s. However, they are mainly cater for the middle-aged.

    You may also spot some ladies practising line dancing inside the association hall. It added some uniqueness to Jonker Walk which some tourists find it fascinating.

    Jonker Walk

    Jonker Walk is an open air night market held every weekend ( and recently extended to eve of public holidays ) evening to late night. Have a leisure stroll along the street, observing the locals' life, catching a free performance and shop for some local souvenirs can be a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

    Baba-Nyonya's legacy: Check out the architecture

    by mansionion Updated Apr 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you happened to be around Jonker Walk at nigth, check out the design and architecture of the buildings in the vicinity.

    Most of the buildings here are living proofs of Melaka’s rich Baba-Nyonya legacy. Their walls are nicely decorated with marbles and "glows" at night. The darkness of the night give a striking contrast to the decorations- something that you can't see if you are here during the day.

    Looks mom, its glows!

    Watch a movie: Watch a movie

    You can watch a movie for RM9.

    We were glad to catch Star Wars Eposide III when we were in Melaka, Mahkota.

    The schedule is display around the ticketing counter. Choose a show and enjoy it.

    You are not allowed to bring any cameras into the cinema. Exchange a number tag and claim it from the staff at the end of the show.

    But I hate to be disturbed by kids screaming and crying during the show.

    Street Performance: Street Performance

    by imstress Written May 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Have a look at the street performance by Master Ho at Jonker Street.

    Master Ho set a record of poking through 3 coconuts in 10 seconds.

    When I was there he was trying to sell his medicine which could instantly stop bleeding. A bottle cost RM20.

    He would ask foreigner to test his coconut and boast about his records.

    We waited and waited but did not see him in action.

    So is he really going to perform or just trying to sell his medicine?

    Melaka raya: Which Nightlife

    by vinc_bilb Updated Feb 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excepted some nightclubs in hotels (Bayview, ...) nightlife seems to be flatt, excepted for those who like Karaokes. If so, most of the well-known Karaoke are located in the hot spot of Melaka, Melaka Raya streets (one night club also, end of the street).
    Sometime good live musik also, but verry strong.

    Karaoke competition is very popular in Melaka.

    You can see them singing on the open stage at Jonker Street and also in most shopping centres.

    Dont be surprised that some of the older folks can really sing well.

    This cafe is packed during the weekends. You can order your favourite drinks here and enjoy the live and free music. Just dedicate a song and the musician will select the song from his laptop for singing. Popular among the western tourists.

    Fuchien & Hainanese Associations' karaoke sessions: Karaoke anyone?

    by mansionion Updated Apr 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visitors to Jonker Walk can participate in this free karoake sessions held at the Fuchien or Hainanese Associations's premises. Every night particularly on weekend, karaoke sessions are held here to entertain the crowd.

    The karoake sessions are open to all and the songs selections are not limited to only Chinses songs (Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien etc, from the oldies like Shaghai Beach to current chart toppers) as English songs are also available though the selections are quite limited.

    Sing your heart out loud, its a great place to sing along and to relax yourself with the local crowd.

    Ringo Classic: A beatle here?

    by blue_b Written Aug 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place also deals with antiques as well as being a nice simple pub to chill anytime of the day. Ringo himself plays live music every 1/2 hr alternating with the opposite cafe which plays the other 1/2 hr so that the 2 won't clash.

    Ringo is a classic musician who loves the great oldies and he sings well too. Given that he is a 1-man band on his own with his guitar, harmonica and electric synthesizer for light drum beats, I must say his co-ordination is great.

    Happy hrs are from 4:30 to 9pm everyday and a beer only costs 6RM during that period of time!!!

    Dress Code: Anything goes in here. There is no U-18 for kids and all are welcome here.
