I chanced upon a free business seminar for SMEs in Putrajaya on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in evenbrite.com one day in 2017, and signed up to find out what it was about. I was not an SME, but an independent self-employed writer, but I went anyway.
It was good that the organiser made it a point to organise such an event to increase awareness about the SDGs. At least the SMEs who made it to the event could learn more about them and how they could benefit from the SDGs as well.
After that, I wrote an article that was published in the Malaysian Naturalist, 71-3, March-May 2018, on pages 44-45. It’s called ‘Rethinking Business Towards Sustainable Development’.
Here is my published article in the Malaysian Naturalist for your reading pleasure.
In June 2017, I participated in my first ever nature photography exhibition, with 23 other photographers from the Malaysian Nature Society Selangor Branch’s Photogroup. It was a very exciting time for us, and we were very happy with the quality of our printed photos and the classy venue at Whitebox, Publika.
My article about this inaugural Photogroup exhibition was published in the Malaysian Naturalist Vol 71-1 (Sept-Nov 2017), on pages 43 to 45. You can see the scanned pages here:
There is talk of making this exhibition a biennial event, and I look forward to participating in the next one. ❤ ❤ ❤
When I started this blog, my main intention was to encourage myself to write creative pieces regularly. However, I also hoped that these pieces would be published one day.
So, I am glad to say that I have published the first poem since starting Project Prose earlier in 2014. The poem is The Ancient Mariner, and it was published in the Malaysian Naturalist, October 2014 issue, on page 72 (Biodiversity).
