This painting is a memorable one. A group of eight otters appeared below the deck, and a water snake was their object of fun and teasing right before my eyes.

The next paintalong session will be conducted at Platform 2 on 24 Nov 2013 from 0830 to 1130am.

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

Sungei Buloh vs Johor Bahru skyline

Sungei Buloh vs Johor Bahru skyline

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.

Sometimes you need to look hard to find seedlings sprouting on the mudflat. But they are there waiting to grow up.The presence of these cute young plants gives one the renewed hope and faith in mother nature.
