Travelling Notes

Tiger-Man Yok Yai
Immortalized for killing a tiger with a blow-pipe[belau]in self-defence.

Bahau's Cross-Kg.Sempoh,Perak

[Private Collection]

Matthew Gospel 3:12
Pangkor Island-Malaysia
Returning after over 20years and discovering that the tranquil mood belies the under-current of racial polarization once absent.

Aki [Grandpa]Kiru
One sleepless night my aboriginal friend Aki Kiru tried remembering his children. After much recounting the correct figures : six sons, eight daughters and 39 grandchildren. People power to the affable OA community!

Papan -Perak,Malaysia
Papan is now a pale shadow of her glory days as a thriving Chinese Miner Town. It contributed to the economic strength of the then British Malaya. Dr.SunYat Sen visited Papan twice to raise fund for his ''China Mission.'

Durians! Oh Durians!-Perak, Malaysia

I wanted this painting to speak of the dignity of honest living. The durian fruiting season is important for the aborigines as it is one of their chief source of income. Aptly crowned as the 'King of Malaysian Fruits' the ripen durians drop during the night and early dawn and must be collected for freshness. It is not uncommon for the whole family to camp in the orchard to deter troops of playful macaque monkeys from plucking the fruits.
