IN a bid to preserve the Jawi Peranakan heritage in Penang, Malaysia’s homegrown jeweller Habib has breathed new life into its premises in Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling by restoring the double-storey outlet.

The RM1mil restoration includes setting up the Heritage Gallery on the top floor of the building while the ground floor houses the Habib jewellery showroom.

Habib managing director Datuk Meer Sadik Habib said that the Heritage Gallery, which is now opened for public viewing, contained more than 1,000 pieces of Jawi Peranakan jewellery, with some dating back to 100 years. more at TheStar HERE
