Impetus for Sisuahlai Charity

WANNA SWAP YOUR ITEM FOR MARVIN'S TRANQUILITY AT BAKO NATIONAL PARK PAINTING? Read on...

SISUAHLAI charity has found an impetus...

The Story So Far:

May 1 2006 blog entry
Let's do something good for the People. Laughters alone won't feed the needy. Have you heard about the guy who swapped a red paperclip for a house? Completely pointless, but he succeeded nonetheless. Let's do something similar among us- bloggers and blog-readers in Sarawak, Malaysia and All Over The World...

I want to raise RM5000 for the National Cancer Society and Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society. How? By doing series of swaps and trades for bigger and higher value items, until a target sum of RM5000 is achieved. I will start by trading a rare 1869 James Brooke for your item...

The story in June 2006...
Francis was the first person to swap. I have sent him a rare 1869 James Brooke stamp in exchange for a "Personalised Irrawaddy Dolphin Watching Trip with FH2o". So my current item up for swap is this kayaking experience. This is a genuine offer. Do you wanna spend a day kayaking with the guru, Francis, alongside dolphins?
The story today...
Marvin Chew responded to the charity drive by swapping his painting (price circa US$500) for the Kayaking experience on 14 July 2006. According to Marvin's blog, the original watercolour painting, entitled "Tranquility @ Bako National Park", measures approximately 14" x 21". The actual photo of this scene is taken by FH2o at Bako National Park. It is painted on acid-free Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper, using artist grade watercolours.
Thanks Marvin! I am now looking for someone to swap for his painting as shown above. Are you the one?
