Happy Heritage Day 2011.

Tin Mining in Malaysia 1800-2000: The Osborne & Chappel Story. Written by David Palmer and Michael Joll.

Yesterday I was in Gopeng for the launching of David Palmer’s book titled Tin Mining in Malaysia 1800-2000: The Osborne & Chappel Story. Have been working on the book for the past few months and am very glad to see it published and launched. The book is published by Muzium Gopeng who are also offically opening their “Heritage House”. The event was officiated by the Minister of Tourism YB Dato’ Sri Ng Yen Yen.

Heritage House in Gopeng

The Heritage House is located at 6, Jalan Sungai Itek, 31600 Gopeng. Tel : 05-3597828. “It is the latest building in Gopeng to be restored with the aim of transporting visitors back in time to have a glimpse of how life was when the Kinta Valley had the richest tin mines in the world.” – source Foong Thim Leng ~ Starmetro. Visit to Heritage House is by appointment only and there’s also a “homestay programme”. Beside the Opening of Heritage House and the launching of “Tin Mining in Malaysia 1800-2000: The Osborne & Chappel Story”, Muzium Gopeng is also celebrating their 2nd Anniversary as well as World Heritage Day. The town that once was the base for “Sup Yee Kongsi” (Osborne & Chappel) is moving towards Heritage Eco-Tourism. Well done Gopeng. To all, cheers. HAPPY HERITAGE DAY 2011. “It is not the HONOR that you take with you but the HERITAGE you leave behind.” – Branch Rickey greenbitch/witch
