Tioman Island. The sea seen from the backyard at Nazri’s Place

Here is a view of the beach at Kampung Air Batang on Tioman island, to the east of mainland Malaysia.

We spent almost a week snorkling the wonderful reefs but of course did no underwater sketches.

Kuala Lumpur, seen from Chinatown towards the old railway station

We spent a month backpacking around Singapore and Malaysia. Despite all the excitement, I took the time to do a few sketches…

Here’s one of the wonderfully chaotic architecture of downtoen Kuala Lumpur. That’s Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in the foreground.

I was in Shanghai for two weeks, working. I managed to do a few sketches.
