Welcome to my blog.
I have post an article about Siamese Kedah Pasai Ma a few hours ago. And now, it is the time for me to post an article about the Sultanate of Malacca. Which one is true? Like I said before, it is up to you to decide. In my blog, I will post both of the history as a comparison. Both empires have one thing in common, one of the Muslim Empire in the South East Asia. The only difference is, the Malacca Sultanate is widely taught in school today. But, the Siamese Kedah Pasai Ma is not been told until recently. Why? I will cover it in the future.
Golden Era of Sultanate of Malacca
The Sultanate of Malacca reached its golden age during the reign of Sultan Mansur Shah. The Malaccan Empire emerged as one of the important entrepot empire in the region. The Malaccan port at that time thrived as many traders from east and west come and traded. One statement said that:
One of the factors that contributed to the rise of Malacca was the monsoon winds that enabled Arab and Indian traders from the west to travel to China in the east and vice versa. At the height of its power, the Sultanate encompassed most of modern day Peninsular Malaysia, the site of modern day Singapore and a great portion of eastern Sumatra. It was also the center of Islam in the eastern sphere, where imams and ustazs came to discuss religion and the like. Muslim missionaries were also sent by the Sultan to spread Islam to other communities in the Malay Archipelago, such as in Java, Borneo, and the Philippines. Most of South East Asia at that time was Hindu.
The Sultanate's most important regional rivals were Siam in the north and the declining Majapahit Empire in the south. Majapahit was not able to control or effectively compete with Malacca within the archipelago, and came to an end during the later 15th century. Siam on the other hand attacked Malacca three times, but all attacks were repelled.
At the same time, Malacca had a good relationship with Ming, resulting in Zheng He's visits. Parameswara had met the Ming emperor to receive a Letter of Friendship, hence making Malacca the first foreign kingdom to attain such treatment. In 1409, the sultan paid tribute to the Ming emperor to ask for protection against Siam and Malacca was made as protectorate of Ming China. Moreover, Sultan Mansur Shah even married a Ming princess named Hang Li Po. This Sino-Malacca relationship helped deter Siam from further threatening Malacca.
During this era, a famous Bendahara and Laksamana of Malacca, Bendahara Tun Perak and Laksamana Hang Tuah has contributed to help the empire grew stronger.

THE NEW LAND
Prince Merong Maha Wong Ser founded a new Kingdom of Kedah after receive a letter of appointment from his father, Emperor Sheikh Huang Di. Merong Maha Wong Ser established a new city of Kuala Muda near Sungai Mas after landed at Yan to find the Ayut’ia Palace belong to a faithful son of Nabi Nuh, Wali al-Mustapha. Merong Maha Wong Ser is styled as Sultan Mad Zafar Shah I. He married with Sharifah Mariam, daughter to Syed Jamal al-Jefrey of Bani Hashim. Their married is blessed with a son named Syed Jamalul Alam Badrul Munir styled as Phodiset.
Syed Jamalul Alam Badrul Munir played a major role in expanding the kingdom. According to Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa, Syed Jamalul Alam has opened a new land named the State of Siam Lancang located in modern Thailand. In Siamese word, Lan-cang means “Gerak Bijak” or “smart move”, a brilliant approach by Phodiset to spread Islam without any spills of blood. Siam Lancang is an Islamic state and part of the Kingdom of Kedah at that time covers all the peninsular. Later, the land is called as Malaka. Phodiset later inherited the throne and styled as Sultan Mad Zafar Shah II. He resides at Bukit Tirik Palace, (located at Pagoh, Johor. At that time, Johor also included in the territory of The State of Siam Lancang).
P.S : In Siamese word, Ma-la-ka means “Marilah Niaga” or “Let’s do business”.
Syed Jamalul Alam Badrul Munir has a son named Saiyidina Ali. He becomes the King of Acheh in 222 Hijriah. The tomb of Saiyidina Ali Wal Maulana Jamalul Alam Badrul Munir located at Makam Langgar, Tanjung Inggeris, Kota Setar, Kedah.

It’s already the month of July. The time passed by so fast. Luckily, that I have finished most of my target for the past month. Working with my blog allowed me to see what has happened in the past. What is June for the Radin’s Blog Royal Portal?
In early June, it is the birthday celebration of Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia, and the anniversary of Malaysian Air force. Later, the story gets hotter with the Palace of Johor strips (or officially fired) the state conferred title from 4 individual and later followed by the Palace of Kelantan. The hottest story of the month is when the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah divorces his second wife, Azrinaz Mazhar Hakim. And, the annual event of Kembara Mahkota Johor is the closing story of the month.
Tales of Vesperia
Well, I just search for a new game and found a game belong to one of the tales series. Seriously, I’m a big fan to the tales series, and have played the previous series before, the Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Legendia. The concept and soundtrack is still as amusing as ever. I think I will cover this in the entertainment segment.
Still searching for new episodes and soundtrack though.
Well, got to go now. See you in next post.
