MERONG

Malaysia’s movie....
i’m really proud to this movie because 
it’s a legend ..really great!
another Malaysia’s epic movie after Puteri Gunung Ledang.
Based loosely on the 16th century historical document entitled 
‘The Malay Annals’, 
’The Chronicles of Merong Mahawangsa’ 
is an action-packed epic feature film, 
with mythical characters, magical moments and 
dazzling visual-effects sequences.
 Merong Mahawangsa was a descendant of Alexander the Great,
 a renowned naval captain and traveler 
who came to Asia several hundred years ago.
The year is 120 AD… 
a time when the Roman Empire is at the height of its power,
 during the reign of Hadrian – 
one of the Five Good Emperors.
 Meanwhile in China, 
the Han Dynasty is firmly cemented as the ruling empire 
and is expanding into Central Asia…
one hundred years before the period of the Three Kingdoms. 
As the Roman fleet did their repairs and traded in Goa, 
they asked Merong Mahawangsa to escort a Roman prince to Southeast Asia,
 to wed a beautiful Chinese princess from the Han Dynasty. 
The Chinese princess and the Roman prince are supposed 
to meet halfway and be married on neutral grounds.
However,
 the pirate nation of Geruda had other plans. 
They decided to kidnap the Chinese princess and use her as ransom. 
En route to the Straits of Melaka, Merong Mahawangsa’s fleet
 was attacked by Geruda’s forces while stopping at 
a small island to replenish supplies.
 Merong Mahawangsa was able to rescue the Princess and re-unite her 
with her betrothed in a marriage
 that is set to bring together two great civilizations 
from the East and West..
based on the synopsis,
Merong was from Rom & he become 
king of Langkasuka(part of Kedah Tua/Kataha)

Abah & Syasya..
“Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic 
as of a father to a daughter. 
In love to our wives there is desire; 
to our sons, ambition; 
but to our daughters 
there is something which there are no words to express.”
