Colours of Jonker Street

Colours Of Yonker.

While searching for images to illustrate the recent feature on Hotel Puri Melaka, I found a forgotten folder. It contains street photography (my favourite genre) images photographed in famous Jonker Street in Melaka. On that bazaar and ancient street, there are so many hidden nooks and crannies with delightful and very colourful subjects and backgrounds.

For street work, bring a pretty friend to act as a model so she can add life to still life subjects. Instruct or direct her clearly as how you want her to react. The model was the former Pin Pin or Alice Pèilíng. Haven’t seen her around much lately as she claimed her FB account was hacked and recently recovered. (also @anyotheralice on IG).

I always pronounce Jonker as Yonker since it of Dutch origin and it is how the Dutch say it. The Dutch ruled Malacca or Melaka for almost 183 years. If you are looking for a hotel in Melaka, see here for links to heritage Hotel Puri and over 490 hotels in the historical city.
