Masjid China Melaka...

"You must have long term goals to keep you being frustrated by short term failures..." - Charles C Noble

On the way back to KL from my nurse duty in Melaka, we detoured to visit the Masjid China Melaka.

It is a Chinese-style mosque in Krubong, Melaka. The mosque is the third Chinese-style mosque in Malaysia after the ones in Kelantan and Perak. It was developed by the Malacca Chinese Muslim Association.

The mosque is designed with a unique Chinese architecture with pagodas and Chinese calligraphy from a combination of architectural design of several mosques in Beijing, Shanghai and Xi'an in China. It has one minaret tower and two domes. The mosque is equipped with the main prayer hall, library, multipurpose hall, offices and restaurant.

With a total built up area of 2.8 hectares, the mosque can accommodate up to 2,000 worshipers.

2015 4-Nation Ride...

"It's not about having the skills to do something. It's about having the will, desire and commitment to be your best..." - Robert Hernandez

After our North Vietnam fly and ride trip, I am exhausted in every way... mind, body and soul.

But after a week rest and an opportunity to be with our children and grandchildren, hubby and I are all revved up again for another riding trip. For more than two weeks, with 13 other bikers, we will ride overland to cover parts of Thailand, Cambodia and Laos, insya-Allah.

They said riding will refresh tired bodies and restore tired souls. May we be blessed with the best of health, patient and perseverance throughout the journey...
