R

umah is a collection of old Riau–Malay rhymed sayings originally gathered and published by Tenas Effendy. Referred to in Malay literature as ‘Ungkapan’, these eloquent stanzas depict the Malay house as a metaphor for the passage of life, the responsibilities of parenthood, the social observances of communal living, and the obligations of existing harmoniously with nature. Together, they form a complex work that vividly illustrates the values of customary law, etiquette, cultural protocols and religious tenets as cherished within a Malay home. The sayings themselves beautifully capture and radiate the warmth of a graceful Malay kampung house cast within the idyllic setting of a lush tropical oasis. Rumah has been elegantly translated by Raimy Ché-Ross and richly illustrated by Ahmad Harun.

Rumah: An Ode to the Malay House Tenas Effendy Areca Books, 2014 Hardcover, 27.3 cm x 20.9 cm, 112 pages 50+ illustrations in colour ISBN 978-967-57191-3-4 Price RM 80

‘The new generation should appreciate the traditional Malay house ... It is a cultural icon, and we should remember and hold on to the tradition that makes up our identity.’

– Datuk Mohammad Nor Khalid (Lat) Penned by cultural icon Tenas Effendy, Rumah: An Ode to the Malay House presents Tenas’ classic tribute to the Malay house alongside a lively English translation by Raimy Ché-Ross, making the work accessible to new audiences. The book is furnished with illustrations by London-based illustrator Ahmad Harun, whose work is mostly in watercolour, acrylic and oil, that gives a breath of life to Tenas’ poems.

By his death, the world of medicine has lost a heroic and almost legendary figure and the world at large one to whom it is far more indebted than it knows. ‘Obituary’, The Times, 1960 It is fortunate that posterity will have in his autobiography – Plague Fighter – a record of the achievements of this great doctor. Professor W.C.W. Nixon, British Medical Journal, 1960

K

nown as the ‘Plague Fighter’ and ‘the man who beat the Black Death’, Dr. Wu Lien-Teh (1879—1960) laid the foundations of the modern medical service in China. The son of a Taishan migrant from China, he was born in Penang and attended the Penang Free School. Winning a Queen’s scholarship, he became the first medical student of Chinese descent to be educated at Cambridge, where he graduated from Emmanuel College with a string of prizes. Returning to Malaya, he undertook research into the debilitating beriberi disease and engaged in social reforms, founding the Anti-Opium Society. It was in northern China that he cemented his global fame, working to curtail the spread of Manchurian Plague which claimed over 60,000 lives in 1910-1911. He became the first president of the Chinese Medical Association and served as physician extraordinary to successive presidents of China. He established some twenty medical institutions in China including Harbin Medical College, Peking Central Hospital and the National Quarantine Service, Shanghai. He co-authored the acclaimed History of Chinese Medicine (1932) and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1935. He spent his later life in his native Malaya — first in Ipoh, and then in Penang — and his death made headlines around the world. First published in 1959, this edition of Wu Lien-Teh’s autobiography, reprinted for the Dr. Wu Lien-Teh Society, Penang, will acquaint a new generation of readers with this great man’s life and work.

‘This remarkable son of Penang was an outstanding scholar, a brilliant doctor and scientist. His victory in eliminating the Manchurian Plague made him an unprecedented authority with the World Health Organization. He established the Anti-Opium Society in Malaya, challenging the British colonial government and powerful business interests that shamelessly profited form the harmful drug, and bravely fought to remove the colonial government’s racial discrimination regarding the use of public services. The reprinting of this book has been commissioned to mark the first Dr. Wu Lien-Teh Commemorative Symposium and Lecture held in George Town, Penang.’

lobalisation and technological progress have ushered us into a new era of development. Never before has the promise of the ‘Good Life’ in a hedonistic, consumerist utopia, been within reach for so many. Yet a significant portion of humanity is still unable to meet their basic needs. These trends are unsustainable, and beg the question: Where are we heading as a global community‌ and at what cost? In 2005, M. Nadarajah embarked on a journey into the heart of Asia to research culturally imbedded notions of sustainable development. He met with the indigenous communities of the Henanga, Ainu, Lanna, Karen, Kankanaey, Balinese and several others. These cultures reside far from the problems of mainstream development, both physically and spiritually. Their lifestyles incorporate philosophies of interconnectedness; of the sacredness of nature; of the continuity of Past, Present and Future. Rather than offer notions of sustainable development, these life-affirming philosophies pave a pathway towards a deep sustainability. On this path, we find answers to how we must change as a society in order for us to preserve our world for all future generations. But do we have the collective will to overcome our consumptive habits and start living responsibly? Living Pathways offers its readers a chance to meditate upon these questions. It provides meaningful directions towards the spiritual paths of sustainable communities we often take for granted. Above all, it shows the reader a picture of the world we live in as it could be, if only we choose to make it so.

A great work on sustainability for those who believe in ‘simplicity, sanity, spirituality and sustainability’.

Nair, Former principal, Madras School of Social Work (India) ‘There is no better time for this book....challenging each and every one of us to remember that we have only one home, our planet Earth. And that we ask every day, individually and collectively: what are we doing to sustain the great gifts of Nature and Spirit that will only be available in the future if we take responsibility for them now.’

CROSS ASIA, people are coming to terms with the impacts of globalization and its accompanying social, economic, and environmental transformations. This compelling study examines biocultural diversity – the ways different communities interact with their surroundings, drawing upon local knowledge, shared values, and cultural heritage as they negotiate change. In an ambitious and pathbreaking regional research project, some of Asia’s leading public intellectuals visited five communities – Kali Code (Indonesia), Tasik Chini (Malaysia), Biwako (Japan), Batanes (The Philippines) and Khiriwong (Thailand) – in order to better understand local responses to contemporary challenges. Through analytical essays, personal reflections, poetry, music and dance – and beautifully illustrated throughout by powerful images – Living Landscapes, Connected Communities encourages us to broaden our understandings of people’s changing relationship with nature to encompass essential elements of spirituality, identity, belonging, and wellbeing. With all their complexity and creativity, each of these communities has something meaningful to convey about the human-environment connection and the common threads linking people across the region. Taken together, these stories of resilience, perseverance, and collective action provides a timely and relevant counterpoint to fatalistic views of environmental degradation. Living Landscapes, Connected Communities will appeal to a broad audience – to everyone interested in the dynamic relations between society, culture, environment, and change in modern Asia.

‘Accessible scholarly books that offer perspectives on communities in Asia are relatively rare. As a volume that trains its focus on the dynamic interchange of society, culture and environment, Living Landscapes makes an important contribution for readers to broaden their appreciation of people’s changing relationship with nature while encompassing elements of spirituality, identity, belonging and well-being.’

A handy guide to Penang’s charming ‘rojak Hokkien’.

P

enang Hokkien is a unique dialect that is widely spoken in and around Penang. More than two centuries ago, settlers from Southern China’s Fujian province introduced their language to the then British trading port. In Penang’s melting pot of languages and cultures, Hokkien was and is exposed to diverse influences. The thus enriched vocabulary and colorful local expressions give Penang Hokkien its distinct character. The Penang Hokkien dictionary features over 7,500 vocabulary entries as well as supplementary chapters on celebrations, short phrases, expressions and grammar. All Hokkien words are written in the established Hokkien Romanised spelling with tone marks POJ. Offering a practical reference on Penang Hokkien words and phrases, this accessible dictionary will prove invaluable to locals and newcomers alike.

The Chulia in Penang: Patronage and Place-Making around the Kapitan Kling Mosque 1786–1957 Khoo Salma Nasution Areca Books, 2014 Hardcover, 24.8 cm x 20 cm, 560 pages ISBN 978-967-5719-15-8

T

amil Muslims – once known as Chulias – prospered as traders of pelikat cloth, pepper and local products in the Straits of Malacca. In the nineteenth century, they enriched the port town of Penang with endowments for mosques, Sufi shrines, burial grounds, a water tank and an ashurkhanah, holding religious feasts and processions. The most valuable endowment in the Straits Settlements was that for a mosque and burial ground in George Town, granted in 1801 by the English East India Company. On this site, a South Indian vernacular mosque was founded by the leader of the Chulias, Kapitan Kling Cauder Mohuddeen, a Marakkayar shipowner, merchant and progenitor of the ‘Merican’ clan. In the early twentieth century, the colonial government enacted an ordinance to take back the lands and modernize the townscape. In the process, they co-opted the traditional leadership and refashioned the mosque into a grand Indo-Saracenic symbol of British patronage over its Muslim subjects. The Chulias excelled as Malay scribes, clerks and land surveyors, and also as ship chandlers, stevedores and lighter owners in the port industry. Educated in English, Malay and Islamic schools, the local-born Chulias, called Jawi Pekan or Jawi Peranakan, became part of the cosmopolitan Muslim elite. They innovated the performing arts of Boria and Bangsawan and pioneered early Malay and Tamil print media in Penang, which helped give birth to modern vernacular discourses. Influenced by the Khilafat and Self-Respect Movements in India, they strengthened Tamil identity and started Tamil schools. For economic and political reasons, they formed the Muslim Merchants Society, the Muslim Mahajana Sabha and then the Muslim League, the last of which competed in Penang’s city and settlement elections in the 1950s. The book looks at how this diaspora community – living under the East India Company, then in the Straits Settlements and British Malaya – evolved in response to the changing terms of colonial patronage. Khoo Salma, while providing a fascinating perspective on Chulias in Penang and the historical processes that defined their society, politics and Islam, also illustrates an important microcosm of the city and the state… The book is almost an encyclopaedia on the Chulias, with evocative images that sharply capture their Indianness and Islamic Cosmopolitanism. It is an excellent book which deserves to be at the top of the league in diasporic studies. – Raj Brown, Emeritus Professor of International Business, Royal Holloway, University of London

The White Crocodile’s Tale: My Memoirs J.M.B Hughes Areca Books, 2014 Hardcover, 24.8 cm x 20 cm, 304 pages ISBN 978-967-5719-12-7

T

hese are the memoirs of J.M.B. Hughes, a celebrated teacher and headmaster who taught in the schools of Malaya from 1948 to 1963. John Michael Broome Hughes (1917–2011) was born in Oxfordshire, the son of a vicar. He studied at Oxford University and served in the British and Indian Armies in South Africa, Pakistan, Kashmir, India and Burma during World War Two. After the war he accepted an overseas teaching post, and it was in Penang that he met his wife Jean Wright. As a teacher at the Penang Free School and the Malay College Kuala Kangsar in Perak, and then as headmaster at Ismail English School (subsequently Sultan Ismail College) in Kelantan and finally the Penang Free School, he educated a generation of young Malaysians destined to play leading roles in post-independence Malaysia.

“I owe much to the wonderful little island of Penang, and my wanderings all over it were something to cherish.  The smells of the fishing villages still linger, mostly of rotting fish and bakau wood burning. I know of nothing better to restore one’s strength and recover one’s will when returning from a very physical trip, pulling oars, and propelling a sampan over the sea than the strong coffee loaded with sugar and thick with tinned milk available from every coffee shop in every fishing village along the Malayan coast.” J.M.B. ‘Mike’ Hughes
