Chue Ee Kiam's "Singapore Splendour - Life on the edge"

Category : pub

I came in to the museum to discover Raffles Museum Associate Chua Ee Kiam and Director Peter Ng pouring over the proofs of Ee Kiam's upcoming coffee table book, "Singapore Splendour - Life on the edge."

They are going through the labels of the figures and choosing text to submit to a foremost environmentalist to write a foreword.

Ee Kiam started working on this book after he completed his earlier book, "Chek Jawa, Discovering Singapore's Biodiversity." Ee Kiam has always conducted this process of species identification and verification with all his books.

I recall one late evening in what we called "Zoo Lab 2," the teaching laboratory next to the Systematics & Ecology Lab. We were choosing slides and providing identifications from his book, "Ours to Protect," which was published in 1994. I remember the students were in awe of him, a dentist naturalist, how amazing!


Ee Kiam looking in enjoyment at the blog post. Photo by Adrian Loo, who is impatiently waiting for me. We need to go off to prepare and conduct the Internet Workshop for Teachers - in 19 minutes time!
