This picture was taken at the back of the Assumption church,Praya lane,Melaka. Isti pintura ja toma na Greza de Kapela praya(Greza de Assunta)
According to my grandmother,long long ago,this statue used to come to life and would walk the shores of Praya Lane. One day, a clothe vander was passing by with his sales. He was not able to sell clothe that day. He stopped at the church to rest. As he was resting,a white lady with a child came and bought some clothe from him. This made the man very happy.
The next day,the church clergy came to prepare the church for mass. He was surprised to find clothe at the foot of the statue,and her feet covered with mud. This went on for a couple of days.
One day the clothe vander passed by the church,the clergy asked the man why has he been putting all the clothe at the foot of the statue? The man explained that he did not do such a thing. He said that a white lady,carrying her child would always buy his clothe.She was seen walking along the seashore. The clergy then asked the man to describe the lady. The man described the lady,saying she was a white lady dressed in blue. Upon hearing the man's description,the clergy took the man to the statue. And the man acclaimed,Yes! She is the white lady that bought my clothe. Since then,a glass framed has been fixed and she no longer seen walking around.
All this happened long before the sea was reclaimed.
Eu Ja ubi de eu sa abok femi,kei tempu isti Nosiora logo sai anda-anda na praya. Ungwa dia,ja beng ungwa omi ta bendei panu. Akeli dia,eli numpodi bendei panu. Ja beng isti muler ta lantar se filo,eli ja kompra tudu sa panu. Isti ja faze akeli omi alegria.
Sa amiang,irmang de greza ja beng kere fase limpu greza para misa. Eli ja bai na tras de greza,ja encontra teng panu na Nosasinora cum sa peiu inchidu cum marti. Isti ja fika tantu dia.
Ungwa dia,ja pasa na porta di greza,omi bendei panu. Irmang de,bai pidi cum eli ki foi ta larga panu na peu de Nosasinora? Akeli omi fala,nungka eli. Kada atardi ungwa muler brangku,ta lantar sa filo logo compra panu di eli. Eli logo anda-anda na praya. Akeli muler ta sibri ropa azul. irmang de greza manda akeli omi beng ola Nosasinora. Akeli omi ja subi saltu. Eli fala,akelilah muler ki kadabes beng compra eu sa panu.
Di akeli dia,padri ja bota glass.Nosasinora ja nungka sai anda rudia mas.
Isti tudu ja susudei antu di gormintu picar mar.
