This painting was specially done for a music video “Di Tanjong Katong”, an endearing song many of us sang during our childhood days. It was also an unusual collaboration with Gendang Akustika, a Malay musical ensemble, who invited me to join them to create this little National Day gift. As in the song, my mind pines for the old Tanjong Katong beach, its idyllic kampong and kelongs. The clear blue sea merges with the azure blue sky, Villagers fish, relax and play nonchantly. I hear the waves lap and coconut trees rustle. I hear the tune of ‘Di Tanjong Katong’ singing in my heart.
