Malaccapools is the very first lottery in Malaysia that was established in 1986. It was then legalized by the goverment in 1990. Malaccapools has helped people not only in giving away winning prizes but also in community service. Donations were given during calamities and emergencies when Malay citizen need most. We also offer loans also to all Malaysian citizens. This is gambling with purpose.
Malacca is a small city with many eye-catching sights and attractive modern establishments. It is easy to get around on foot or trishaw to explore the many places that make it unique. You'll learn about the rich heritage and history which has shaped Malacca into the unofficial historic capital of Malaysia. The most prominent contribution that Malacca has lent to the Malaysian cultural landscape is the Baba-Nyonya culture. Possessing an entirely new blend of customs, traditions, food and lifestyle, the Nyonya are especially prominent throughout Malacca. Although the city is a mix of old and new with historical buildings standing side by side with ultra-modern shopping centers it retains this seamless blend of cultures.
As far as could be ascertained there are no less than three versions as where the State of Malacca derived its name. The least probable of the three was from Gaspar Correa made in the 16th century. He contended that Malacca (Melaka) was derived from Mulagas which was a kind of salted fish exported from the state.
A version mildly accepted was that the name came from Mulagah which is Arab for a meeting. The acceptance of this version was attributed to Malacca being a meeting place in the 15th and 16th centuries for merchants from countries near and far. There were, however, scholars who contended that the Malays then would not have accepted an Arabic term because the Arab merchants at the time were not a prominent community. More scholars and historians were agreed that Malacca (Melaka) derived its name from a tree, the 'pokok Melaka'.
Their reasoning was that the local inhabitants at the time were fond of naming places after plants or trees. The Melaka tree was then also growing in abundance along the banks of Air Lereh. Some of the places that bear the names of trees or plants to this day are Kampung Alai, Kampung Bertam, Pengkalan Kempas, Kampung Merlimau and Kampung Kundang. Still, this last version is not necessarily the correct one as there is no positive proof that it is.
