Do you believe it, I’m holding  a precious and authentic ceramic from Ming dynasty?

Thanks to my cameraman, Marcus!


Today I was at D7 Sentul again to sell my book, “The Scissor Sharpener’s Daughter.” The event was a talk, “Wanli Shipwreck Treasure of the South China Sea” by Ben Rongen. Besides my book, my author friend, Dennis De Witt’s books were on sale too.

The talk was a very interesting one. Merchant ships from China during the Ming Dynasty were sunk off the Peninsular Malaysia’s east coast during the 17th century while on the way to Malacca. Cargo of Ming’s white and blue ceramic went down the sea and stayed there for more than 400 years before being discovered by a team of divers.

Today, some of these pieces were on displayed at D7 Sentul. I was so excited to hold these rare, precious and historical items in my hands! Thank you, Ben Toh, for organizing this memorable event.
