Photographer's Note

This is a picture of a sampan. It's pronounced 'sum-parn' in English. It's the same boat which you see in my Penang Tropical Spice Garden series.

Sampans are usually used by fishermen when they go out to the sea to fish. It's not used in deep waters though. Also, in some parts of Malaysia it's used as the main transportation where rivers are more commonly used rather than roads.

This particular sampan, serves no purpose and is for aesthetic use in the spice garden. I think the owner must have got a real sampan and placed it in the pond.

I like this picture and I hope you like it too.
