Telling Tall Tales
He was caught red-handed in the act of telling a tale. Linda Goh, a witness of the scene, reports.
It all happened behind closed doors. With the help of an ally, he accomplished what he came to do at Sungei Buloh Nature Park. An amazing story was crafted and narrated. He and his perfect companion managed to keep us spellbound for half an hour. What exactly did he feed us on that fateful day that we gave him our ears?
It all started off with us asking the volunteers to brainstorm for stories to be told in the Park. Kelvin K. Param, a Park volunteer, came forth enthusiastically with his story on Mr. Monitor Lizard. Mr. Monitor Lizard has a lesson to learn in order to live in harmony with the aviary residents of the Park. The story which was set in Sungei Buloh Nature Park has received favourable comments from Ashley Bryan (American author and illustrator of children's books). On 21 March 1998, the Park began its inaugural storytelling session. This is yet another achievement for our public education programme with the invaluable support of our committed volunteers.
