Podcast: Mohd Nasrul Mohd Nasir of the Customs Museum

By June Ramli

If you’ve watched the Disney movie Raya, you would really be able to resonate with this latest podcast series that I’ve prepared for you.

In my recent interview with the Director of the Customs Museum from Negeri Sembilan in Malaysia, our topic of discussion was centre around well… dragons. Now let me explain, why did a business site like ours decide to do a piece on dragons? Well… I recently wrote a novel titled Daily Straits. Though the book is NOT about dragons it is however centred around the world of mysticism and Malay folklore with a tinge of Westernisation weaved into it as the book was set in Sydney and a small town in Malaysia known as Tronoh. After having the urge to write a novel for the last eight years and not doing so due to a serious bout of reasons (read: procrastination), I finally disciplined myself enough in the last year or so to complete my novel at the height of the pandemic while we were all under lock and key. I am please to announce that my debut novel has been done and dusted and is now available for purchase on Amazon. But due to my busy schedule I’ve failed to do the most important thing that every independent author should do and that is to promote the book. And so here I am trying very hard to market the book. I’ve decided to skip the fanciful Zoom parties that most authors do these days to promote their literature and have gone on a different trajectory that is to interview experts and artists who can give us a glimpse of our rich ancient history and Malay folklore through podcast interviews such as these. With that in mind and to kick-start the series, my very first guest today is the Director of the Customs Museum in Negeri Sembilan in Malaysia Mohd Nasrul Mohd Nasir – who is going to give us a lowdown on all things dragons or naga as the Malays call it which apparently according to him was a pretty evident feature in the Nusantara (Malay) culture during ancient times. Although our interview was recorded in Malay, the team at DailyStraits.com have taken time to translate one of Nasrul’s research papers about dragons in English and we have placed the article at the bottom part of this interview.

So, for now without further ado, let’s us listen to the interview here:
