wild regards: Dr Chua Ee Kiam's book launch

Congratulations Dr Chua!

Dr Chua Ee Kiam's latest book Borneo's Tropical Eden: Sabah. will be launched tomorrow! (31 Aug)

"The work of three close friends, fired up with a passion for the wilderness. Their perseverance and the vision have resulted in the culmination of a book that will serve as a window to the untamed world and remind us of our connections with the wild. Richly illustrated with over 360 photographs and evocatively written, the handsome book will appeal to eco-enthusiasts and lovers of nature."
from simplygreen's webpage about the book

Dr Chua's latest book has been truly a labour of love. With trademark quiet efficiency, he has put together yet another monumental work almost as if by magic. This is the latest of four books that he has authored! I still don't know how he he does it.

Dr Chua is now in Malaysia for the launch. So he couldn't be with us for this series of super low tide visits. We miss him and we wish him all the very best for the launch!

Do look out for his latest book in our bookshops!

hi Ria and rest of the crew. I did not expect such a grand book launch at Sandakan on the 30 of Aug. GOH was the Chief Minister of Sabah Dato Musa Haji Aman and we were later invited to his residence for dinner (3,000 people) and was in the motorcade to the city for the National Day celebrations. The launch was quite emotional as some of my members cried as the book touched our hearts as it took so long to complete. It was attended by more than 200 people including dignitaries and cabinet ministers. I really felt good caressing the book. Of all the launches, this is most memorable! Ria, you will get a copy for helping me vet the text. Kotohuadan (which is thank you in Kadazan)

Wow! What a wonderful event it must have been! A book launch is like the finale of giving birth to a baby. The joy after the pain of months (in your case years) of heart ache and hard work. Congratulations once again. I too can't wait to caress your newest baby :-)
