A Tower Of Dream Halfway Through.
This time it is not about my painting but this time it is about another dream that I would like to share.Fortunately it is not only my dream but it is also my brothers's dream.Having 4 brothers and 5 sisters so probably it is also the same dreams of my sisters.
My Family with my Father in the middle at his '82 years old birthday family reunion'.
My youngest sister and my 3rd brother was not in the picture.Me in red shirt.
As a young dreamer,I always dreamt of having a retreat or a resort house somewhere on an island or on a mountain.A Robinson Crusoe's kind of a house where we could gather our sibling and our kids once a year. A house where we could do bird watching,star gazing and jungle tracking,collecting insects,fishing in a nearby river and all sort of thing that Robinson Crusoe ever did and all Jacques Cousteo never did.
On the contrary,my older brother's dreamed was to have a place where artist can spend their time retreat and doing paintings. Some sort of artist village where artist exchanged ideas,inspiration,relaxing in their own hut among the trees,doing sketches,pantings,sculpting,reading,sleeping and eating bananas.
Unlike my younger brother,he wants it to be a hotel where people pay to stay there.People do yoga among the tree house,sauna in a cool mountain water with open air bathroom, eating under the star gazing roof,internet chatting and client pay for everything.
I say!!!why not we combine all of this and see how???.......a tree house,a tower house,a mushroom house,a tatoine house,green house,eco friendly house and all sorts of ideas ......we use to long chat from 8.00 pm till 6.00 am in the morning,half awake,joking,laughing all night long rewinding old stories....The conclusion will always be .....how deep is the pocket???but never fear!! My older brother take the first bold action...he just start drawing a sketch of a mushroom and .......
NOW!!!!Our dreams is halfway through or you can say that it is true! and really really real.......!!Actually few years back my younger brother had found a piece of land available at the foot of a mountain.My older brother just agreed to that and together they bought the land at the foot of mountain called 'Gunung Raya' located on a beautiful island called 'Langkawi' North of Malaysia very near to the Andaman Sea. If you happens to surf Google Earth,please try this location. I will gladly welcome to all of your comment and probably maybe in the future if you happen to visit Malaysia's Langkawi Island why not come and see my brother's dreamt.... or even stay there!!
