Abstract This paper traces my early childhood years, growing in up in a post war Malaya. It describes my early experiences and the memories that have influenced my design directions.

It describes my early participation in design and architecture in hands on deconstruction and reconstruction of traditional timber structure. It also traces my participation in show gardens in Japan, the USA and Singapore, describing how these show gardens were used as laboratories for experimentation on soft and hard landscape.

It concludes with reflection on how these experiments have influenced my work on permanent gardens.
