Chin’s Nature Corner
Why I call this website my nature corner
The Royal Assyrian
WHEN I WAS a student in primary school (the first six years of formal schooling in Malaysia), we had a nature corner. This was a school desk or two placed in a corner of the classroom and was clearly labelled NATURE CORNER.
  It was here that we displayed items that we students had found... things like snail shells or seashells, dead insects, nests that had fallen off trees, even bird feathers, flowers and seeds, etc. And we students maintained this nature corner... with lots of help from Teacher of course.
 For many of us at that time, this rather random collection of bits and pieces of nature was our introduction to the world of nature. We enjoyed learning about the things that we had found. It kindled in our young minds a curiosity about the living things in the world around us.
 In my case, I believe it was this nature corner that had planted the seed of an enduring love for nature. Now, after more than six decades, I am still just as keen to learn more about nature as when I was tending to my classroom nature corner.
 This website is my nature corner on the World Wide Web where I display pictures of the creatures (and plants) that I have randomly discovered and photographed.
 I have built this website to share the joy of nature watching with other folks on the World Wide Web, in particular with nature lovers, and (just doing what I can) to show the world a small portion of Malaysia's living treasures. You could say this is the internet incarnation of the classroom nature corner of my primary school years.
