IS WINNIE SIN THE WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL JEWELLER? WE THINK SO!
**************************************

AND THE DECOR IS INDEED REMINISCENT OF A BAROQUE PALACE IN VERSAILLES, FRANCE AS ALL GRAND MANSIONS AND CHATEAU IN FRANCE AND REST OF EUROPE ARE FILLED WITH CHINESE ORNAMENTS, CUPBOARDS AND STATUES AS CHINOISERIE WAS PERENNIALLY POPULAR.

EVEN TODAY, THE MOST EXCLUSIVE AND EXPENSIVE HOMES IN EUROPE AND AMERICA ALWAYS HAVE A FEW CHINESE OBJETS D'ART SO WINNIE SIN'S PALATIAL SHOWROOM IS A CLASSIC AND EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THIS GENRE THAT BLENDS THE BEST OF WEST AND EAST.

AND PRAY TELL, WHO IS THE INTERNATIONAL AND FRIGHTFULLY EXPENSIVE INTERIOR DECORATOR WHO CREATED THIS LUSH AMBIANCE AND SETTING THAT CAN BE USED FOR A MOVIE SETTING?

IS HE FROM LONDON, PARIS OR NEW YORK. OR MAYBE HONGKONG OR SHANGHAI?

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT IS WINNIE SIN'S HUSBAND SIN CHEANG LOONG!

But how did Sin Cheang Loong get all the fabulous works of art and antiques? Some are new, some old and all extremely dazzling? I know even if money is no object, such objects simply cannot be bought overnight!

"You are right. These are part of his collection which he started after marrying me," says the beauteous Winnie Sin. "He has been collecting for the last 35 years for this. Our home is furnished with his stuff and he still has more in the warehouse! So it is very easy for him to visualise what he has in mind and physically recreate his vision."

Surprisingly, Winnie Sin had no hand in the decor. She laughs, "Everything is done by my husband and i did not contribute anything. There can only be 1 captain in a ship so I leave everything to him. I just appreciate and admire the end results! Of course my taste is very similar to his. It took 6 months to furnish the interior. The ceilings, plasterwork and wallpapering are by local craftsmen who seemed taken aback when asked to do the work. They kept asking my husband "Are you sure you want it like this?" or "This is the color you want?". My husband told them to do exactly as told since he was paying them!"

Winnie Sin does the selling of jewels as this is her passion and what she does best. "I do the sales and he does the decor. So our paths don't cross and no arguments! It is great that we do what we enjoy most. Visitors all are amazed and said they have never seen such a place like this."

This showroom is just the tip of the iceberg or should that be blingberg---more is to come!

Winnie and Sin Cheang Loong had bought a huge, 8,000 sq ft bungalow and yes, hubby is busy decorating and furnishing it on a monumental scale, the likes of which have never been seen in Malaysia! It will be a national treasure in terms of magnificent decor as well as the most splendid setting for masterpieces from Rafflesia Pearl Centre, Mandalay Jade & Ruby as well as Jewellery Circle, the 3 brands which will be blended into one.

Once the bungalow is completed, I think Rafflesia Centre and Jewellery Circle at ParkRoyal hotel will close.

Winnie Sin plans to have a cafe at the forthcoming bungalow in Ampang which will serve food and champagne to her guests. That's really something to look forward to!
