My First Book

Alas! My decorative painting book is out! Though out since last May, I am still celebrating, waiting for the book launch day tentatively scheduled for the coming 21 august . Most of my students, friends and family have got their copies. Thank you for your support.

Writing a book has been my dream. 15 years ago, I dream of writing a book, then about children's stories as my girls were young and growing up. But Mr Opportunity didn't turn up. Then when I started painting and reading books on decorative painting by foreign artists, the dream surface again and I was inspired to write the first Malaysian book on decorative painting . I share this inspiration with Aniza and she too had the same inspiration. But we just didn't know what to do until opportunty strikes when a friend led us the way to Utusan Publishers. Then it was just extra hardwork put in by my co-authors and I that we managed to write our first book.

Titled Decorative Painting - Amaze Yourself With Stunning Projects, my co-authors are my friends Nora and Aniza. Priced at RM36, the book is now available at MPH, Popular and Kinokunya nationwide. There is also a bookfair currently at Putra World Trade Centre and our book are amongst the many displayed there. You may also order the book directly from me, mailing cost will be added accordingly.

So, enjoy the book and Happy Painting
