BORNEO'S TROPICAL EDEN - SABAH
The book project on flora and fauna in Sabah started in 1993 and took the author through different habitats and terrain. And nature never really stood still to be photographed. But photograph we did. Instrumental to the mission was the help from Wildlife Department.The book acknowledges the many Sabahans who made our job easier. This book is a tribute to all Sabahans. Publication had been delayed due to the lack of funding. It was launched recently; the waiting is finally over. It won "Honorable Mention" at the Independent Publishers Book Awards 2005 in New York!
Book Review ("A Little Piece of Heaven" & "Picture Book on Sabah wildlife". The book is a colourful and illustrative book, capturing the essence of Sabah and is the masterpiece of three close friends - Dr Chua Ee Kiam, Billy Kon and Lee King Li. They have something in common and that is a passion for the wilderness
