Virtual Experience: Tribute To Praya Lane, Melaka

Hosted by Martin - The Malaysian Portuguese Chef & Chorister


“Ke sorti kambradu, teng bong.” (“Hello my friends, hope all is well”), I'm Martin Theseira, a Malacca Portuguese (Kristang) descendant born and raised in Praya Lane Melaka, Malaysia. Growing up in Praya Lane was like growing up in paradise. Unobstructed views of the Straits of Malacca from our backyard, the sound of waves gently caressing the coast in the background. When night fell, the stars would sparkle brilliantly in the darkness as if they were shining only for us! This place was once a vibrant fishing village until our seafront was reclaimed in 1984. I learned fishing from my late uncle since my childhood days. Later I decided to promote Kristang Heritage Cuisine which forms an integral part of Melaka’s rich and unique cuisine that is more than 600 years old. One of the main dishes that I am very proud of is my home-made salted-fish, mango pickle paste and you must try it because they can't be found anywhere else in Malaysia! Music has always been part of my life. I have been a choir member of the Assumption Chapel since I was a teenager and also involved in the Kristang Music scene with the guitar and the ukelele is my favourite instrument. I hope to open through this live on-site virtual experience a new page for you to understand and appreciate where I come from, my heritage, traditions and the culture of my Community!

This is wonderful journey into a pocket of Malacca that is off the beaten part. Praya Lane with Martin walks you thru where he grew up, you hear about his neighbours, the shopkeepers and the chapel. Relax with a cup of tea at the end with Martin stringing the guitar and singing a good number of songs.

A nostalgic way to connect with home and family especially this year when travel is not on the cards for many of us. Very festive and joyful celebration of Christmas. Well presented but still room for improvement 👌🏼 Bong Natal to one and all !
