Heritage Talk: If Walls Can Speak --- Birth of A Nation by Dato’ Ar Hajeedar Abdul Majid

Dato’ Ar. Hajeedar Abdul Majid, the principal of Hajeedar Associates Sdn, had carried out the transformation of Carcosa and Istana Tetamu into the Carcosa Seri Negara Hotel through an adaptive re-use exercise in 1989, just in time for the CHOGM Assembly. Through his talk ‘If Walls Can Speak…Birth of a Nation’, he wishes to ‘seek confirmation’ from the walls of Seri Negara in tracing the people’s desire, effort and sacrifice for self-governance post World War II, the role of the Malay Rulers and the Reid Commission leading to our Constitution and eventual Merdeka on 31st August 1957. Reference will be made to Seri Negara where most of the deliberations were held. Dato’ Hajeedar will also be reminiscing his younger years when visiting Seri Negara to accompany his father who was the Liaison Officer for the Commission of eminent Commonwealth judges to evaluate the aspirations of the Malayan stakeholders.
