Nature Art On Trash Bins July 31, 2009
Trash Bin Art: The next time you visit Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve be sure to enjoy the beautiful artwork done by our conservation volunteers and the Buloh Dabblers. A special activity for the Volunteer Appreciation Day on the 18 OCt, 2008, was the trash bin painting contest. Volunteers were given 2 hour to paint these bins, on all 5 sides if they had the time. And most met the challenge headon and managed to complete. The finished panels were simply beautiful and brightens up the images of the otherwise taken for granted bins. Thanks to all who participated.

A Charcoal Sketch to record my walk September 23, 2008
One of my favourite walks I take at Buloh is at this mangrove boardwalk. I could see Malaysia across the straits. The contrasting shapes of mangrove trees silhouetted against the city skyline of Johor Bahru caught my attention, making it a telling image of nature vs man, complementing perhaps in terms of aesthetics or silently declaring our co-existence is in imminent disruption. Neither aspect was the reason for my sketch. I scanned the horizon, everything there look tranquil and still. No human presence, no traffic noise and no trash washed ashore this morning. The silence is only broken by occasional bird calls. Its another perfect morning to start my new day.

Cattails at Bishan Park April 16, 2013
Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park took on a renewed look with its riverine theme. One of my favorite cycling parks besides the Lotus Garden which i like very much, there are much more to offer to the park visitors. This water color sketch was done after my biking routine there. The park connector network passes through it.

Sighted this heart warming scene of some sandpipers huddled together for warmth and security in the cool drizzly morning when I dropped by at Sungei Buloh Wetlands at 7am. As the pond was almost fully inundated, they found refuge at this little mound.
