The Okami vision

I recently dropped by my future home, Setia Alam, just to see how the place is progressing. Setia Alam is a new housing project by the award winning SP Setia.

During the visit, I managed to take a few photos to share with friends and family. Also, I think it would be nice to look back 20 years later and tell others how Setia Alam looked like when it first started out.

My wife was going through the photos when she saw this one:

This is one of the lakes in Setia Alam... I think it is called the Western Lake.

She asked me to draw a circle around the tree.

At first I was puzzled... Huh? Circle around the tree? What for?

Then I realised... She has been watching me play the Playstation 2 (PS2) game called Okami. In this game, you can manipulate the environment by drawing certain shapes. And when you draw a circle around a dead tree, the tree gets 'rejuvenated' and comes back to life!

Screen shots from the PS2 game Okami, showing how to rejuvenate a dead tree...

And I thought she could not be bothered about what I play on the PS2... Okami is a very beautiful and colourful game. There are some (Chinese and Japanese) myths incorporated into the game as well. And so far, in the 5+ hours I have played the game, there are still no stage in the game in which I cannot overcome (meaning the game is still quite easy to play).

Anyway, I think it's a good idea to 'rejuvenate' the tree in Setia Alam. So, I present to you the tree-rejuvenation process...

First, find a tree. Next, draw a circle around the tree... And finally, enjoy nature's beauty!

OK, I know... The rejuvenated tree looks a bit 'cacat-ed'.

Incidentally, if you are interested to know more about Setia Alam, do drop my an email or just leave your questions in the comments section. I'm more than happy to share with you my thoughts about my new home. The residents here have even got a website already!
