program ..
6pm - gandhara exhibit

7pm - Talk: The Tang Wreck By Dr Edwards McKinnon, Visiting Fellow, Asia Research Institute

Sometime in early the 9th century a Persian dhow foundered and sank off the coast of Pulau Belintung. Over a thousand years later the wreck would be discovered, and its cargo, the largest collection of Chinese export ceramics ever found, brought to the surface. Dr Edwards will be speaking on this unique marine archaeological discovery, the wreck and the importance of its cargo, which along with ceramics also contained gold and silver ingots and Tang Chinese repousse work, to our understanding of trade and contact between China, and West Asia.

8pm - vatican exhibit

9pm < 12pm - late dinner? drinks?


*fyi - i am 35m malaysian, and not looking :)

oh hello sherly!

u can see how excited people are with museum and culture threads. aw .. that's a pity .. u r one of the very rare few who responded, and i was hoping at least u can come. oh well, nvm, another time ya :)

haha .. yeh, volunteered my 'bio' info for exactly the reasons u understood.

visitor? i had visitors too last weekend. we took the river taxi from hill street to fullerton, only $5 .. it was FANTASTIC! a full 30mins round trip is only $13 .. i cant wait to try. suggest u board from the hill st station coz there is hardly any queue, and u may get a whole boat to yourself.
