We love working with the soil, my brother Joseph is a lawyer, he has a beautiful garden.In the midst of a 21st century concrete jungle of Singapore, I protected myself with a green jungle, Nanyang technologgical University. This jungle gave reprieve and enjoyment to my overseas friends.
I had a gardening column in a website which provided a lot of information on "How to grow in a tropical island."
Here are just some of my plants.
