June 2019 CEO Message
Hello my friends! The month of May was mostly flourished by rain, not just in Malaysia but far in Hong Kong as well. I had a chance to visit Hong Kong, the Asia’s financial centre to witness several important events, Christie’s and Sotheby’s Spring Asia Auction, and International Antique Fair. It was a real fantastic opportunity to study and observe the best practices of the two biggest auction houses in the world, and enhance our own.
As a Christie’s bidder, I had participated in the modern Chinese painting and I am lucky to have won one. It was quite a good deal when the same artist with similar calligraphy was sold at least five times my purchase price. Sotheby’s event was at a different venue and their auction dates are no clashing with each other. The auction categories of watches, bags, furniture, real estate, painting, antique, Buddhist arts, wines and spirits were within my admiration. The world’s greatest artists like Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet’s paintings are just within reach. Their incredible works of art are available for private deal.
It is always our vision to showcase the international standard of auction within our door step, that is Malaysia and we are determined to work harder to achieve it. We are going to showcase to you a series of events from July to November, including the scheduled Straits Chinese Antique Auction in Mid August and Important Watches Auction in October. Your support mean a lot to us! Stay tune!
