Looking for a treasure! $ 100 million hidden somewhere at Malaysia! It seems a tale of Sinbad the Sailor in One Thousand and One Nights but it’s real money.
In 1511, Portuguese conquerors where arriving at Malaysia. Then, sultan Mahmud Sha hide a treasure somewhere at Malacca.
Gold and silver; sophisticated jewels and precious stones; pieces of furniture and artwork… A legendary treasure that they are trying to find now.
“During its heyday, the ships that docked at the port of Malacca paid their taxes and stay with gifts, including bullion, gold coins and precious jewels,” said professor Mohd Jamil (newspaper The Star). “Based on the studies conducted so far, the chances that the treasure is hidden in Pulau Nangka are obvious.”
Pulau Nankga is a small fishing island just 20 hectares, surrounded by coral and located 17 kilometers from the Malaysian east coast.
Latest news: Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron has just said that the four-month contract beginning January 2014, given to Smart Partnership International are in the point of ending. Then, the search of the treasure is going to continue but with another firm. He also said that the new company would continue its search in another area on the island. “Actually, the search for the treasure on the island by numerous parties has been carried out since 25 years ago but to date, it has not been found.”
What do you think? Maybe the treasure was found during the last five centuries. Maybe that lucky person never told anyone. Remember ‘The Count of Monte Cristo “by Dumas.
Anyway, it’s a thrilling story (or reality). I love it!
