Perak Heritage Society
Born in Kampar and educated in Australia, Siak Hong is one of the most passionate champions of heritage without any regard for financial gain.
Siak Hong is aware that development cannot be stopped so his mission is to ensure that it is done responsibly with an eye to preserving our heritage. He makes himself available for consultation and assists researchers, universities, owners of heritage-type properties. He has also researched and documented heritage buildings throughout Perak.
The good news is, his is not a voice in the wilderness as throughout the country, more and more Malaysians are realising the intangible value of our heritage.
