Hamamako Scream

Since that fortunate day, she had never stopped crying, she did not have school and suffered the indignation of her teachers, but she suffered more than she bargained for, 70 years of inescapable discrimination. She cried and screamed, but everyone was doing the same. She got infected by the black thing. No medicine can kill the black thing. No one can shake it off. One by one, they watched the black thing ate into them. Others who were lucky and was not within the range of the black thing despised them, ostracised them, like leprosy, they were thought to be contagious. The black thing created an imaginary boundary between those infected and those uninfected. 
She was sickened with this situation. Her scream had become muted. She still had nightmares. She saw people flaking off, jumped into the water, bled from their skin, coughed and vomited. One by one they went through hell to heaven. The pain on them was call burn. It burned for weeks. Hurt for a long long time. One by one people ar…

One Bodhi Tree

Documenting with Photography, writing, history and human spirit. Some want to conserve the graveyard, others wants to conserve their ancestors’ history, but here they want to conserve the Bodhi Tree, perhaps for the Genius Loci, or perhaps Lord Krishna and its humble temple anchored the fond memories of the boys who grew up in this village. For sometimes it is beyond reason that some things are done in this way. For me, I paint the moment for eternity. For the last milliseconds were gone when they passed us. Only the photographs can recall the stories again and again vividly. 

Modern Chinese Calligraphy

This is a journey of understanding Chinese culture and philosophy through Dao De Jing. The most sacred ancient text written in the 500 BC whose author the scholars has not been accurately identified. This text, though written more than 2500 years ago. Is still studied, translated, and interpreted by many who have a keen interest in Chinese philosophy. 




A modern interpretation of Chinese Calligraphy waiting to be explored by the reader of the most secret text of ancient Chinese civilization, the Dao De Jing. It is the most translated text, and it is still relevant till today. Printed on cream paper, consisting of eighty-one chapters, each written on a single sheet for easy coloring.

Colouring for Seniors - Little India

This is a series of fountain pen drawings on Little India, drawn after a careful study of the place over a few months. It was more than a year ago that I decided to teach my son how to draw with a pen, fountain pen to be precise. It was after his 'O Level' and he had a few months before the result is release. 
He loves to draw since young. He would draw all over the table and chairs, his table and chairs. We do not allow him to draw on the wall and other places. However, every now and then we still would catch him doing just that. Usually, we insisted that he cleaned them up. His cleaning was bad. We could still marks and residual ink or pencil lead on the wall. Our domestic help did a better job. 
He was never good at getting good marks for his studies. When he said he was going to score, it was always some marks around 65%. We were not particularly worried about his result that we would force him to study every minute. However, we would still have to figure a way to allow him …

Urban Yoga

This is one huge piece that can be printed to 5 meters length on Canvass. I have included a detail crop to see the sharpness of the photo and the expression of joy in the yoga instructor. 


The perspective brings the viewer into focus, the joy and happiness is that which we would not mind having. Others sought it with their entire life. Yet another, share their joy with others. And the guru among us encourage and guide us into achieving them. Through all these, perhaps one arrives after loosing all that one possessed. Perhaps the one that have nothing is the joyous and lightest of all.





This one has the Singapore city included in one wide scoop.




The Paradise

Paradise Digital Art + Photography Print on Canvass (Limited Edition, 1/5) 1000mm x 4000mm
choomengfoo@gmail.com Paradise I was inspired by the extraordinary scene I saw in JiuZhaiGou, China. The lakes, the sky and the trees are taken from a scene in my imagination, except they stood before me. I was awed. The serenity and peace I felt lingers on and on. I could only stand there watching, watching … I saw a Paradise in the making, of exotic birds, of colourful fishes and … water, nature and sky dissolved into each other … becoming a calming space where birds and fishes of different geographies, shapes, sizes, colours and habits converge, descending into this dark shade of Persian Blue.

The four metres length, forces the viewers to glide along, discovering the details, and unraveling the mysteries and secret that was embedded in it. At times one could vaguely see a dragon, the auspicious animal in the Chinese zodiac, dwelling beneath the water. In all one would always be energized aft…
