Fishing Village 

As I have been tired of the noisy and busy urban lifestyle, I was increasingly yearns for the tranquility and peaceful life spent in the village. Memories of listening to the sea and watching the many traditional Malay fishing village, untouched beaches that dot with colorful fishing boat often trigger my urge to create. Hence, the fishing village became my inspiration in order to invite the viewer to discover and explore the beauty of the tropical scene. You find these sorts of villages along the coast of Malaysia, particularly over mangrove swamplands. The houses are built on stilts away from the high-tide line, just incase the tide runs over.



I was always astonished by the beauty and interesting movement of the small animal such as birds. Therefore, I like to use birds as my themes; hopefully one can feel the splendorous pleasures in my works.
