I love animals and penguins and so much fun. I met some Humboldt penguins from my trip to the London zoo. They have a penguin pool with glass sides where you can sit and watch them play all the day long. It was a super fun day out.
Wishing you all a Happy Easter Sunday and a happy full moon from London.
It’s crazy how time has been flying by and it seems like just yesterday we ushered in the new year.
Peace and love to you all ❤️

I love Chinese paintings. The old masters were copied over and over by artists because the paintings are not just about the subject, but also the artist. The energy and brush strokes of the artist give life to the subject depicted. Chinese aesthetics also value simplicity and breathing space. It’s interesting to compare the differences in the approach to art and philosophy between the East and West.
Hear me roar! 🐯
We are soon ushering in the year of the tiger and I must say I do love tigers.
Tigers symbolize power, bravery and drives away evil spirits.
This Sketch of a traditional Chinese tiger art outside a temple in my hometown is placed there as a guardian to protect the entrance.
This is week 6 of my hand rehab and drawing everyday helps the healing process. I’m learning to draw with my non dominant hand as proof that practice makes your a better artist.
Happy Sunday my friends.
How to become a better artist? Practice makes your drawing better.
Here’s a quick 20 mins sketch of the majestic Malayan Tiger using my non dominant hand as part of my rehab physio journey.
It’s week 6 since I broke my hand. It is definitely healing but I don’t have full mobility yet. Hopefully soon 🙏
Set your spirit free…

It is a privilege to be showing at the Penang State Art Gallery for LangUR: Building Bridge Between Our Worlds art exhibition curated by Ivan Gabriel for the Penang State museum to raise awareness of our Endangered Dusky Leaf monkeys and to raise funds for the Langur project Penang.
I’ve been intrigued by these monkeys ever since the first time I spotted them hiking up Penang Hill. It used to be rare to spot them as they are very shy and they live in the deep forest, but in recent years, they have become easier to spot as they have been flushed out of the forest into the urban landscape.
They give birth to golden babies which stay golden for about 6 months. It is believed that they are golden orange because predators can’t see this colour and works well as a form of camouflage.
It works so well that I have never spotted a golden baby. All my friends know how much I want to see one in the wild and I do hope I get to see one soon.
In this artwork, The mother and baby langur sits on a tree branch in a meditative pose at sunset, surrounded by the lush tropical rainforest, with the racket tailed drongo watching over them, and a butterfly in the distance.
My artwork is inspired by my encounters with the langur troops, the desire to see a golden baby and my dreams and hopes for a better world.
