    Dear Mr. Khor,

    I enjoy your watercolor works of Penang immensely. I am a former Penangite now living in California and the paintings of yours brings back fond memories. I still visit Penang but not too often and it has changed dramatically over the near 30 years since I left. Your water color paintings possess and preserve the nostalgia feeling. Deft and purposeful brush strokes at all the right places allow the viewer to fill in the rest of the painting.

    Take care and God bless,
