Adat Perpatih was brought to the Malay Peninsula by the Minang society from Sumatera who retained their customs when they migrated in the 14th century.  This traditional custom which is passed down orally covers a whole range of aspects of social life including the appointment of Yamtuan and Undang, punishment for breach of custom, marriage and regulations governing marriage, inheritance and other matters. In Peninsular Malaysia, the Adat Perpatih is practised only in Negeri Sembilan, Naning in Malacca and by descendants of the Minangkabau people in Kampung Lukut, Kota Tinggi, Johor. Nevertheless, the Adat Perpatih which is practised here today has adapted with the practice and custom of the indigenous people, who are the original inhabitant of the state, who practice local customs.

En. Mohd Khairil in his talk will discuss the Perpatih Adat administration system in Negeri Sembilan and its place in today’s administration.

—————————————————–

Adat Perpatih telah dibawa ke Semenanjung Tanah Melayu oleh masyarakat Minang dari Sumatera yang telah mengekalkan adat resam mereka apabila berhijrah pada kurun ke-14. Adat tradisi yang diturunkan secara lisan ini, merangkumi secara menyeluruh pelbagai aspek kehidupan masyarakat termasuk pelantikan Yamtuan dan Undang, hukuman perlanggaran adat, peraturan nikah dan kahwin, pewarisan dan sebagainya. Di Semenanjung Malaysia, Adat Perpatih hanya diamalkan di Negeri Sembilan, Naning di Melaka dan penduduk berketurunan Minangkabau di Kampung Lukut, di Kota Tinggi, Johor. Walau bagaimanapun, Adat  Perpatih yang dipraktikkan hari telah mengalami penyesuaian dengan amalan dan adat Orang Asli yang merupakan penduduk asal negeri, yang mengamalkan adat tempatan.

En. Mohd Khairil akan membincangkan tentang sistem pentadbiran Adat Perpatih di Negeri Sembilan dan kedudukannya dalam pentadbiran masa kini.

The Wet Plate Collodion: A Demonstration of a Historical Photographic Process by Dr. K. Azril Ismail

ABOUT THE TALK

The talk will discuss the historical photographic process before the era of manufactured photographic celluloid films and gelatin silver prints as practised by early pioneers such as Sachtler & Co, Carter & Co, Kleingrothe, Henry Schuren, G.A. Schleesselmann, the famous G.R. Lambert & Co., and various other Europeans who opened studios in Singapore and Penang where they carried out work in Kedah, Malacca, and Borneo. The extraordinary images of “Old Malaya”, which we often regard with a sense of nostalgia, romanticised (or colonialised, depending on one’s political perspective) various aspects of our people and places through this visual representation.

In this talk, Dr. Azril will look at how these extraordinary images were made – from the clear glass coated with a thin layer of collodion salt solution, then immersed in a silver bath solution rendering it light sensitive, to exposing and developing it in-situ, either as a negative, or a positive (ambrotype).

In addition, Dr. Azril will do a brief demonstration replicating this process using an antique camera and an adapted mobile darkroom, with similar chemicals used in the 19th century process, to develop the plate on the spot.

Members’ Trip to Seri Menanti and Paroi, Negeri Sembilan
Saturday 9 March 2019

Meet/Registration at Istana Lama Seri Menanti, 9.15 a.m.

Seri Menanti, the royal capital of the state of Negeri Sembilan, was established in 1773 as a loose confederation of luak (districts), by immigrants coming over from Sumatra (mainly Minangkabau). Of the original 9 districts (Sungei Ujong, Rembau, Jelebu, Jelai, Naning, Klang, Segamat and Ulu Pahang), hence its name, Negeri Sembilan, only the former five districts remain as part of the State today.

This visit is limited to a maximum of 40 pax, and will include a guided tour of the restoration of the Istana Lama as well as a talk and visit to some traditional houses in the area. After lunch, we will proceed to see the former Salinger House which has been relocated to a private estate near Seremban.

Registration fee for the trip is RM60/pax for members and RM85/pax for non-members. The fee is inclusive of lunch and some light refreshments.

The detailed programme will be provided to those who register for the trip.
