We went to a Sunday mass here. It was hot!! They have fans and are trying to get money to pay for AC, which is needed. The service was comfortable as in English (the one that we went to) and universal for Catholics.

A catholic church built by a French priest on the site of a Portuguese church in the state of Malacca in Malaysia. Impressive, awesome structure. I recommend viewing it at night when its facade is subtly illuminated in a glow of faint blue.

Go and explore the church and do not make big noises to respect them. We went around in the evening.

One of my favorite places during my Mayasia trip has to be Melaka, an old Dutch Port that houses the original resting place of St Francis Xavier. This church was being renovated and closed when I went. So just took some pictures from outside.
