Living with the soil.

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.

Johor Ferns give a good carpet cover

I grew the bird's nest fern from a little seedling, and put it under a big tree.

Blue ginger aka galangal for curry, Thai and Chinese dishes.

Yellow ginger aka Tumeric,

Peace lily.



Banana for fruit and leaves


The others are local herbs.
