A Fruitful Trip to River City, Bangkok
Our visit to River City Bangkok was successful. This trip has enriched our knowledge and understanding about Thai porcelain, and indeed eye-opening! We visited the Association for the Propagation and Promotion of Objets d’Art, RCB Auction House, Hong Antique, T&A Gallery, Pui Antiques, Yixing Teapot Exhibition, 333 Gallery, Suk' and other antique shops in Rivercity Bangkok. We had a good meet-up, exchange, and a delicious Hi-Tea at Riverview.
Rivercity Bangkok Management hosted a very luxury dinner Champagne Taittinger Cruise by Supanniga for members of PACA. Very authentic and tasty Thai cuisine, impressive night view along Chao Phraya River Bangkok together with champagne and wine made it a perfect night for collectors and friends.

MNP commenced its operation by securing several financial institutions’ agreement to conduct foreclosure auction of real estate. It was not until 2014 to practically diversify its portfolio when it was appointed the first ever official auctioneer of Bank Negara Malaysia (Central Bank of Malaysia) to handle the Bank’s auction of Malaysian Banknotes with special serial numbers. MNP further strengthened its antique and collectible auction market leadership when it launched the inaugural Straits Chinese Antique Auction in May 2017. MNP was awarded ISO 9001:2008 in Quality Management System in year 2010 (upgraded to ISO 2001:2015 in 2018). It achieved another milestone when it was awarded the National Mark of Malaysian Brand jointly by SIRIM and SMECORP in 2015.
