Malay manuscripts: rich heritage worth cherishing

Malay manuscripts: rich heritage worth cherishing. [Newspaper] (2014)


OF late, there is increased interest and awareness about Malay manuscripts in the media, and this has been circulating among the younger generation. I recently visited Pameran Antarabangsa Manuskrip Melayu 2014 at the National Library. I was glad my friend talked me into going to this exhibition. The exhibition was beautifully showcased in a gigantic ship, which is connected to our historical heritage in shipbuilding and navigation. The replica ship was called Pinis Gobel, a Malay ship that I believe was described in ancient legends. As we entered the ship, I was amazed to see manuscripts that I have never heard of! Each manuscript was divided into sections such as navigation, weaponry, medicine, crime, kitchen and more. It teaches us how our ancestors used to live and what they used to believe in.
