From sleeping in the street to travel around the world

In the first half of my life I use to sleep outside at the end of the corridor our one room rented flat, we live in poverty, when my dad died when I was 5 years old, we used to live on social welfare.

When was young I hope to see the world, I always tell my mom I hope to see China, she would sarcastically replied to asked me used oil to rub your leg to travel there.

Many days we would be eating white rice and dark soya sauce, sometimes with an egg, as we have no money to buy food.

My younger days helping my mom running a food stall, did help.

My devising ways to retake the 3 0 Level subjects, Maths, Physical Science and English, as a private candidate, by devising ways to forecast the right questions coming out from the exam.

Most of my classmates failed after they retook as a private   candidate because it is difficult to remember everything in the books.

Through my struggle and mastered the stock market I managed to traveled the world:

I brought and read many books on the market and business and keep reading to master the market and devised ways to pick stocks, so that I can have some extra money to fulfill my wishes to travel around the world.


Not surprised Geography and mathematics were my best subjects.

In 1990 a person introduced me to the stock market, which begin my epic journey and good fortune.

I started my journey traveling to Genting Highlands, M'sia with a group of friends in 1989.

1991 I traveled to Japan on a 7 days tour visiting Taiseji Head Temple and Disney Land.

I walked  a staggering 6 and half hour nearly non stop, unfortunately the 36 film I took in the city, which I didn't loaded properly was spoilt.

Request to use my photo for non commercial purpose

Dutch website requested to use my photo for non-commercial, research purpose:


Images for non-commercial publication


Dear Henry Leong Him Woh,

We are doing a research on sustainable cities; urban greenblue grids. This non-commercial research will result in a book and website and is funded by the Dutch government. It will take a closer look on how cities can become more sustainable with the use of water and green grids. The project we're doing has a small website with the latest updates (in Dutch): groenblauwestedenbouw.nl

For our publication we're going to use illustrations and examples. For the chapter Biodiversity and Green Roofs we're looking for some good examples, like the green roofs in Singapore. My request is if it is possible to use the following image? And is it possible to get it in high resolution?

The photographer will be mentioned at all the images in our publication.

I hope to get an answer soon and what the possibilities are.

Kind regards,
Amar Sjauw En Wa
