Last Saturday (29th March), Victor Chin, an accomplished Malaysian artist and heritage enthusiast, held a talk on heritage buildings found in Penang, Malacca, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore at D7 to a group of heritage buffs.

Also on sale were printed copies from his original collection of water-color drawings of these buildings done many decades ago when they were still around. Victor’s drawings were so beautiful and nostalgic. It was truly a one man’s labor of love for these architectural wonders. Sadly, many such buildings were either torn down or were abandoned. After years and years of exposure to the elements, they were stripped of their former glory. Thanks to Victor, today, we could still marvel at these heritage buildings through his art.

I was also allowed to sell my book at this event and I managed to meet many interesting people. Among them were Hissein from Sudan and Tobias Petersen from Germany. Also present were Debbie Teoh, the celebrity Peranakan chef from Malacca who graciously treated us to a few dishes of Nyonya kuih. It was an interesting evening.

Thanks everyone!
