Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com. This new show is slightly different from our usual chit chat about entrepreneurship and all things related to the business world. In this series, we would delve into Malay history and all things mythical. Before we get begin, let me explain how the idea of this show started. Well, it is all thanks to my debut novel “Daily Straits.” In that novel, I wrote about sorcery, which I know many Malaysian families can relate to. Growing up in beautiful Malaysia, hearing all these mystic stories is something that we were immune to. Looking back, almost every culture in Malaysia, be it the Indian, Malay and Chinese have had some kind of brush with the supernatural one way or the other which we find in abundance in old historical scripts. So, this podcast series aims to delve into the beliefs of ancient or traditional old stories such as The Malay Sultanate, fables of beautiful Malay princesses, their respective curses and so on – which I have some of weaved in my book. Our guest today is a Malaysian artist Ahmad Fuad Osman who is the curator of the very successful exhibition known as Enrique de Malacca Memorial Project. We have asked him to come to the show to tell us everything he found out about this mysterious historical figure.

In this podcast, Fuad discusses:

  • What made him want to start this project?
  • How long did it take for him to compile all his findings before he could start exhibiting?
  • Who is Enrique?
  • Why is there very little mention of Enrique in Malaysian history books?
  • His future plans in regards to this exhibition?
  • Without further ado, let’s listen to the interview here:
