Sari Segala Ubat is the latest book published by Dr. Mohd. Affendi (Flagship champion). The book content is based on a Malay medical manuscript entitled MSS B15 Kitab Ubat-ubat dan ‘Azimat, which is currently being kept in the British Library, United Kingdom. It is believed that the manuscript was copied from Tama’s manuscript (or Sama), who was a royal healer for Pontianak Sultanate, on 17th May 1813. The manuscript contains healing practices by the royal healer of the Pontianak Sultanate, Kalimantan Barat, Borneo. The information in the manuscript may broaden the knowledge of science and technology that had been used in the past among Malay communities in Borneo.
