My Trip To Malacca Coin Auction (14-12-2014) Part 1
I arrived in Malacca town on Saturday noon with my beloved wife. Before heading to check in to the Hotel Puri, I made a surprise visit to Mr. Ng of Seong Yeong Motors Sdn Bhd. at Taman Peringgit Jaya.
Mr. Tristan Ng, is a very young and energetic numismatist in Malacca. He is organizing a two days big event; The World Heritage City Melaka Numismatic Cultural Show (马六甲钱币古玩文化交流展) on 20.12.2014 & 21.12.2014 (Saturday & Sunday).Time: 9.30am to 6.00pm.We had a good chat for about half an hour. I am wishing him a big success on this event and praised him for his good effort on promoting the king of hobbies, numismatics.

I checked in to the Hotel Puri at 1.00pm. While waiting for the Singaporean numismatists to arrive, I went to "lepak" around in Jonker Street "cari-cari makan". I walked to Boson Goh's shop, it is just about 300 meters away from my hotel. I previewed some of the lots that I am interested to bid. I was served by Mr.Goh and his lovely wife. Later, I met Sifu Kenny Ong Yew Chuan for a short meeting.

My Singaporean numismatist friends Mr and Mrs Chong Kee Tho and Mr and Mrs Wong Hon Sum arrived in the late afternoon. We still managed to previewed some of their items that they are interested to bid before Boson Goh close his shop.

We had dinner at our regular restaurant, the Teo Soon Loong Chan Teo Chew Seafood Restaurant along Jalan Hang Kasturi. A very famous restaurant in Malacca that serve good Teo Chew cuisine. We asked Boson Goh to book our table a month ago before our visit. If not, without advance booking ,they will not serve you even though you are the Prime Minister.
