Here’s a picture of the Hon. Mr R. G. Watson, British Resident of Perak. This picture was taken from the G.C.V.O. Week booklet, published around 1914.

This booklet is an account of the celebrations at Kuala Kangsar from 21st-28th September 1913, to mark the presentation to His Highness the Sultan of Perak of the insignia of the G.C.V.O. (Grand Cross of the Victorian Order).

We thank Winson Saw for sharing this with us.

If there’s one thing I look forward to during Chinese New Year, it’s probably the Chinese movies featured on TV πŸ˜‰

I’ve not seen this movie – Pursuit of a Killer – but I’m sure some of you have.

We have here a scan of the synopsis as well as a promotional still from the movie.
