Sketchcrawl - September 2014

For this month's sketchcrawl, we got ourselves into the Segu Bungalow. Segu Bungalow was said to be originally built at Kampung Segu which is also known as Kampung Benuk, about 30km from the city at Puncak Borneo, as the last Rajah's as his summer house. But since he hardly had the time to visit the village, when he became the Rajah, he had it dismantled and reassembled – piece by piece – on the hill top along Park Lane in 1936. Museum curators used to stay at this bungalow.
 Louise Macul, now, lives in this bungalow.  So with special permission, a handful of our members wondered around the compound and on the porch, capturing some interesting sketches of this place; including the artwork/mural done by Tusau Padan, a Kenyah from Baram, in around 1950s.
As seen from the following picture, some of the buildings on the left in the compound is being rebuilt because the original timber structure were bad affected by termite.
We ended the morning with a show & tell by Louise, who told us stories of the old bungalow, over some morning tea with local kueh & fruits.
