Seven years ago today on 17th April 2010 I donated this 27" x 23" wood framed cardboard mounted photograph of a glorious Kampong Sungai Bera sunrise to the Panaga Helps Earthquake Fundraiser event as a lucky draw prize.

This picture was selected by event organizer Liesbeth for the auction she themed: "This sunrise piece represents the new dawn for the earthquake victims of Haiti and Chile as generous donations pour in from all over the world to help rebuild their lives."
.
'I framed this shot from my kitchen balcony. Beautiful landscape moments like this was what made getting out of bed easy. Fast forwarded a few years, however, such views along with the iconic trees got lost to neighbourhood housing development and everything quickly became a distant memory.

Seven years on, Facebook prompted this reminder which I shared on my timeline only to receive a surprising comment by the lucky draw winner, Sanne Van Grinsven-Braakman ... "I was the winner of the Panaga Helps auction 7 years ago and this pictures hangs now on my wall in New Orleans!"
.
From Brunei to USA — Wow 😍
