What if we let nature 'speak' our emotions to our loved ones when we are far away from them? Drawing inspiration from the practice of belayar (voyage) in the Malay Archipelago during the 19th century, A Voyage of Love and Longing invites visitors to re-trace the complex emotions at its different points, from departure to return, through the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings.
Join our host Charlotte Mei and curator Syafiqah as they explore how flora and fauna was used to tell a story during the Malay Archipelago in the A Voyage of Love & Longing series below.
