ABSTRACT: This electronic book contains a collection of oil paintings that I did over the years. These are paintings based on my childhood memories. I was born in 1944 and grew up in a rural area in Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia. The pace of life was very slow. My parents had seven children. I was the oldest. Although life was tough, but we had lots of fun memories. We did not have an art class in our school. So I did not have a chance to learn drawing or painting. I only learn painting by myself when I became a faculty in the US. Over the years, I did many paintings based on what I remember. Except for the first painting (showering at the jetty) which I imagine, all the paintings are from my memories. They are more or less chronicle.
