Overall, it was a great 5D experience for me and at the same time it refreshed my memory for Malacca history. I think Melaka Alive will be a fun place to explore and a learning experience for the whole family especially for the children to visualize and have a better understanding about the history of Malacca.

  11. Haven't heard of Melaka Alive before, well, I haven't been to Malacca too. The show looks amazing in your shots, just seeing the quality and attention to detail of the props and costumes just makes me want to see even one performance. Now I'm wondering if we have our own version here in Manila. :)

  22. If there’s one thing that piqued my curiosity, it’s probably the props they have on the stage. It looks really realistic and made with care, making the whole scene more believable in pictures.
