An Ode To Melaka (Malacca)

It is one of Malaysia's oldest places,
Many choose it as a vacation base,
It had been a lively Portugese port,
And still remains lovely in many ways.

Years ago the scene was not a big deal,
Nothing exciting that one can recall,
And then after more than forty long years,
Its growth has been most impressive for all.

It adds many unusual attractions,
For the tourists and holiday makers,
And there are nonya sweets and fine cuisine,
And graceful gifts for souvenir searchers.

So in this place, there's no reason to frown

at the feats of this world heritage town.
