Royal Selangor Visitor Centre: Discovering Malaysia’s Pewtersmithing Heritage

Posted on May 10, 2018

Before the Kuala Lumpur, Lah! media tour, I had little knowledge about what pewter really is, how it is made, and its importance in the history of Malaysia. So I was in for a treat when we dropped by the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre, established by the world’s foremost pewtersmithing company that was founded as far back as 1885 by Yong Koon, a young Chinese immigrant from the port town of Shantou. He joined his two brothers who worked asRead More

The state of Selangor, surrounding Kuala Lumpur, is a melting pot of cultures, including that of the Javanese. The Javanese people – or Orang Jawa – migrated from Central Java, Indonesia, to Malaysia from 1880 to 1930, seeking greener pastures away from the Dutch colonizers who ruled Indonesia at that time.
