Alam Melayu

Back in 2010, I was still struggling with the definition of the word 'Malay' or 'Melayu'. I visited ATMA UKM website and studied about the Malays there (online). This is the ATMA UKM Site Admin's email to me at the time. It is a good site and has a lot of stuff about the Malays.

Pleased to inform you that portal has been transformed successfully. This portal was developed by the Institute of the Malay World and Civilisation (ATMA), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in 2002 to meet the information needs of local and international researchers in Malay world studies. It is now ready to be accessed by users at its URL address with lots of content and interactive features like blog, discussion, review etc.

Please explore it and provide your valuable feedback or suggestions.
