Welcome to the PHS blog, or heri.blog, if you like.
What this blog is about.
We are glad to start blogging in 2010 and we look forward to hearing from you. We offer quick response to heritage issues as they appear. We are not confined to Perak. We will highlight any lesson to be learnt about appreciation for our heritage.
What is heritage, and why does it matter?
Our heritage is shared by a multi-cultural people celebrating harmonious diversity. It is both indigenous and imported. It embodies our social history, our glories and our wealth. It gives us our identity. It figures in our daily life and our memories. It is of public interest.
Heritage is not simple. Its scope is vast, and its interpretations often conflicting. It is not easy to define.
In Malaysia, guidelines are set out in the National Heritage Act 2005. Read it and tell us what you think.
History is intrinsic to Heritage. History matters. Heritage counts. Heritage is what you have inherited, what you embrace, what you could live with and what you pass on to the future generations. It is about your pride and your values, your memories and your experiences.
Start thinking about what you value and you will fall naturally into sustainable conservation.
How heritage needs you, and what you can do to help.
Our heritage needs you — individuals, property owners, contractors, developers, architects, business owners, conservationists, you and me! It takes individual, community and governmental efforts to protect and conserve our heritage.
