Encounters with nature 2002 March 27, 2019
The year was 2002, when I first signed up as a volunteer guide at Sungei Buloh Wetland reserve. 17 years and counting. We have a bigger reserve now and it is still growing in size and community participation. Thanks to National Parks, volunteers and nature lovers, we all have a common interest to conserve, appreciate and enjoy our nature environment.
These two postcards were part of my contribution to raise funds in 2002. Glad I still have a set of these to share.
17th Anniversary as a volunteer at Sungei Buloh Wetlands February 22, 2019
This morning I celebrated my 17th Anniversary as a Volunteer of the wetland reserve at Shelter 1 of the Mangrove Board.
Arrived there very early in the morning to enjoy the quiet and peaceful ambience there.
Sketched 3 scenes in different media all from one single spot but with different perspective. This was to try out some new techniques, quite unlike what I used to do with oil 17 years ago. Glad that in the 2 hours I accomplished my anniversary mission.
A graphite sketch, a loose water colour painting and a quick pen sketch to record this special visit to my favourite reserve.
Met Choon Beng, who will be joining AVA soon. Chatted with Shufen on some activities for the Friends Group, and was introduced to Dr Doug Watkins, who was helping Buloh in a special project.
Shufen mentioned sighting a single otter at the main bridge which I would dearly wish to see as well but I was at the wrong place at that time. It would have been a special moment just to sight an otter, let alone a lonely one, to recapture that special moment 17 years ago on the same day at Hide 2A. That was the special reason I became a volunteer.
Wonder if I will be able to relive sighting otters again right at my painting spot in the years to come.
