Why Melaka’s Chinese traditions is like by many people
The Chinese Government have been promoting trades with other countries since a long time ago and one of their selected places is Melaka. Thus, Kampung Cina is today keeping up with modern methods and technology but preserving old traditions and the folks never think of modifying their houses, shops or even their wet market. Commonly, the Malaccan call this village, Bukit Cina or Sam Poh Well, or 三宝井
The most they would do is to maintain and preserve all the structures within the village, aging through time and weather. This Chinese Village was given by the Raja Melaka as the Chinese were welcomed as hardworking and industrious.
An intricate civilization, the Chinese developed their writings from drawings, for example, the word ‘horse’ in Chinese look like this 馬 , where the four commas below represent the horse legs which later simplified to a stroke which look like this 马 . Next, even a person has little idea about Melaka, he would have heard about or tasted Melaka Nyonya, or Melaka Chinese food else where. I have only mention two but I can’t squeeze Chinese’s magnificent customs and traditions here.
