Soul Of Our Nation - The Book

In 1997 I became a Frequent Flyer (NZ-KL) and rejoined The Star, the third time; as their Picture Editor.

That year I was told that the bosses wanted to give something "meaningful" to the guests and VIPs at our annual birthday celebration, they have decided on a pictorial coffee table book depicting the unique multiculturalism of Malaysia.

A picture book that is like a culture melting pot, where each different uniqueness of different race share their cultures and customs; for the whole word to see.

You can't receive a more meaningful souvenir than that!

A project of this size & scope requires much planning and organization. I will have to work closely with scores of reporters and writers and we have to travel to different parts of Malaysia to capture the various events.

It is an honor to be selected for a coffee-table book celebrating the Malaysian heritage!

It took a small team at The Star nearly two years to put all these together and this is a tribute to them!

Our effort was published in 1999 and ended up as a corporate gifts!  I feel the Malaysians have a right to enjoy our effort, after all; like the book cover stated, this is a Malaysian Heritage :) 

This book is dedicated to the people of Malaysia! And for the whole world to see!

The Light Rail Transit (LRT) is a vital component in Kuala Lumpur's infrastructure development.
The Kuala Lumpur International Airport is ranked among the top three in the world with all the latest in technology.
Putrajaya, a symbol of the nation's aspirations; is the new seat of government administration and the hub of the Multimedia Super Corridor.
The Multimedia Super Corridoor (MSC) is an essential component to the achievement of Vision 2020.
