On 15th and 16th August 2015, we, graphic design, animation and architecture students from International Education College (INTEC) went to a class trip to Melaka. The trip wasn't just for fun. We have been assigned to do some research for our website.
The first place that we visited was Mini Malaysia.
The main feature of the park the replica of traditional houses of 13 states in Malaysia. There, I've decided to do my research on traditional 'Rumah Kelantan'.
