Have you been to Sarawak Museum recently?Saturday, May 11, 2013
Hello all.... Namaste~!
I like to spend some free time in the museum - whenever i had the chance. I think we also need to occasionally go there either alone or with family and friends. Sometimes there is something, particularly the oldest history that has been or is about to disappear, only can be found in Museum.
On the 10 May 2013, I was one of the bloggers who were invited to witness the re-opening of the museum. Super excited!! Its been awhile!
While waiting it to start....
This ceremony was attended by Mr. Ipo Datan (Director of Sarawak Museum), Puan Aisah Eden (Chief of Corporate Services) and Ms. Joanne Tan Cho Yian (Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility).
Sarawak Museum, in collaboration with Sarawak Energy (the Sarawak's energy provider), on the 10th May 2013 unveiled the redesigned longhouse gallery showcasing the culture and heritage of the indigenous people of Sarawak. The enchanced cultural gallery, entitled the ' Longhouses of Sarawak', includes collections of historical artifacts, life size recreations of longhouse, historical photographs, legendary stories, traditional musical intruments, handicrafts, tools and traps used for fishing and hunting and others.
Sarawak Museum's Director, Mr Ipoi Datan said in his welcoming speech,"The partnership between the Museum and Sarawak Energy is aimed at enhancing visitors' experience to our cultural gallery.There a multimedia displays and more detailed information on the exhibit. This will benefit students or visitors who are looking for information on the longhouses in Sarawak."
Puan Aisah Eden, the Chief of Corporate Services which was representing the CEO of Sarawak Energy for this event quotes,"We have approximately 30 ethnic groups in Sarawak and each contributing to the State's diverse and rich culture and heritage. Steeped in history this melting pot of culture, lifestyle and language, is reflection of colour that make up our beautiful Sarawak. Sarawak Energy is proud to play a part in this cultural preservation for our future generation to enjoy and learn from."
