We are a family 8 with six children aged between 22-6 years old and a grandma living within walking distance to the beach coast of the Straits of Melaka. The Tg Tuan forest reserve is a short drive away and it's gazetted as an Important Birding Area, especially for the migratory Raptors.
Our family love the outdoors and conduct nature appreciation classes along the coastal shores and jungle.
We live away from the city and lead a simple, back to basics life.
Our current project is a smokehouse. It's halfway built, we need help to get it up and running.
We have recently adopted a pet pig in addition to to four chickens. And part of our daily task is their upkeep.
We are also looking into teaching the school going children in our small town the importance of good spoken and written English through language application, as many have a poor command of the language.
