If you’ve been following SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»’s blog stories here, you would have read about her recent art collaboration with WWF Malaysia on tiger 🐅🐯 conservation, read more via 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2022/07/29/roar-for-life-eco-festival-in-conjunction-of-global-tiger-day-by-wwf-malaysia/

This round she đŸ‘©đŸ» would like to share about her recent media attendance to witness the official media launch to raising greater conservation awareness with WATER 💩: A Musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ presented by Somerset Music & Mr Chin San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ»

WATER 💩 is a musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ Tiger 🐅🐯 calls the animals for a meeting to discuss man’s act of deforestation which leads to the pollution of rivers. All the 7ïžâƒŁ animals affirm the sacredness of Mother Earth 🌍, ohh no no…đŸ™…đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Guess what❓⁉

The musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ is interactive. The audience are invited to sing đŸŽ€ & dance đŸ©° together with the cast members, wow‌ Absolutely gonna be an exciting & interesting musical experience with a meaningful conservation awareness raised, bravo‌

It’s a collaboration đŸ€đŸ» between playwright/director, Mr Chin San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» aka nickname in Mandarin ć±±æ°Ž Mountain Water, with music by Ms Joanne Poh đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ of Somerset Music, the audience can look forward to this 60mins of memorable cum interactive engagement with the cast members. Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ & the cast members have proudly shared during the launch that the music is catchy & interactive for audiences to sing đŸŽ€ & dance đŸ©° along with all cast members during the musical play. Wow‌ SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» is looking forward toward it, how about you❓⁉

Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» said at the official media launch of WATER at Warung Old China in Kuala Lumpur (KL), West Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ, “I was contemplating writing a play on the topic of conservation when I read of the deforestation that was taking place at the National Park đŸžïžđŸŒłđŸŒł in Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ many years ago. I was too earnest & the muse eluded me, till now.”

When the covid lockdown began, Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» spent 4ïžâƒŁ very productive months occupied, with the end result of finishing 8ïžâƒŁ scripts: 2ïžâƒŁ satires, 3ïžâƒŁ musicals, 2ïžâƒŁ monologues & 1ïžâƒŁ operetta. So, that is how WATER 💩 : A Musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ is flowing out to the Malaysian audience in this post-covid environment

It’s really a privilege for SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» to be at this official media launch to hear directly from Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ», Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ, Mr Khang Nanyao đŸ‘šđŸ» & some cast members of their involvement & preparation of this musical play đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ

Do check out her TikTok clip captured from her media attendance via đŸ“č🌐

Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» continues to share that: “A musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ is more difficult to realise as it is very challenging to compose a piece of music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ to lyrics written by another person. I approached Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ to compose the music. Joanne in her own right is a piano teacher, runs a music school & has sung in choirs & performed on stage. I gave her a year to work on the music. I am glad that Joanne Poh took up the gauntlet with our 3ïžâƒŁ musicians.”

He đŸ‘ŽđŸ» further explained to the media members that during the covid lockdown, he basically spent time on eat 😋, sleep đŸ’€đŸ˜Ž & write âœđŸ», repeat almost the same daily & then produced this play đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ He always wanted to create something relating to pollution & conservation. He just sat down to write without any ideas, then this play materialized naturally. Bravo‌

He đŸ‘ŽđŸ» also admitted to the media members that personally, he is not good in music, not a single note. He understands the difficulty of composing music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ from play, so he spoke to Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ, a music teacher, singer, pianist & more to invite her to compose music for this play. Joanne actually being modest & hesitant to Mr San Sooi’s invitation at the beginning, she managed to produce the music for this play after 1ïžâƒŁ year. Yeah‌

Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ then shared with the media that a total of 8ïžâƒŁ songs, each animals represent in each music. Why took a year❓⁉ She was procrastinating at 1st, hence delaying it when she was invited by Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» To her, music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ actually comes when you don’t want it from her music experiences. She would like to have her music on how to connect with the audiences. Also to her, the animal’s gender in this play actually makes a difference in her music creation. It’s neutral & simple to looping mind 🧠 when connecting with music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ Even for children/ students đŸ‘ŠđŸ»đŸ‘§đŸ»đŸ§’đŸ», to educate them on pollution & conservation through music đŸŽ¶đŸŽ” Of course different for adults & teenagers will be also different. The children will come with adults (ie. Parents/ teachers) to the play, so using appropriate music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ to tight in the play script content is really important to connect with the audiences whether during or even out from the theater that the audiences still remembering the conservation messages from this musical play đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ

She đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ further explained that she was hesitant to Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ»’s invitation at the beginning because it’s totally 🆕 to her to put music in this educational play. She was lacking of confidence with totally something 🆕 to her music experiences. She took a lot of courage because she understands well that this music from her needs to be put on stage for the public. At last, she decided to still give it a try. Yeah‌ Ohh ya…Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ also shared that she was at 1ïžâƒŁst worried about the generation gap with Mr San Sooi, 81 đŸ‘ŽđŸ» who is actually on par with her grand parents age. She appreciates the trust from Mr San Sooi with her to put tunes to his play script created. In fact, she has total freedom in her music creation to this play đŸ‘đŸ»

“WATER 💩 is a combined effort by us in an act of creativity with the members of the cast. The oldest cast member is 61 year old Hilda Looi đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŠ± & the youngest cast member is school girl, Kirsten Wong, 13 đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž Together with designer, Khang Nanyao, we have set the stage with the different cast of characters through head gear specially created headwear for Mousedeer 🩌, Tiger 🐯, Elephant 🐘, Monkey đŸ” & Wildboar/ Warthog 🐗 In a small but significant way, we hope that WATER 💩 : A Musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ would make people be more aware of the environment & treat it with respect & concern. The play could lead to larger issues like conservation of the seas & oceans 🌊,” added Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ»

Mr Khang Nanyao đŸ‘šđŸ» shared during the official media launch that the animal’s head gears were all 3D printed for current edge trending technology. So, the weight of each is not heavy & does not spoil very fast. These head gear with PLA plastics is possible to recycle ♻, but it may require special techniques to recycle them

Hmm…Importance of technology over the nature/ being environment friendly❓⁉ Personally, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» as a go green 💚 person would think of using a more environmental friendly materials in producing the head gears would be more meaningful to this play on conservation initiative & awareness đŸ’ȘđŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»

Mr Khang Nanyao đŸ‘šđŸ» further explained to media members that he appreciates the trust from Mr San Sooi đŸ‘šđŸ» as he has full control on the hear gear design, yes ✅, basically everything on his own ideas & no restrictions of head gear ideas for this play. It’s actually both the spiritual design with technology design at the same time. He did an open head helmet instead of a covered mask as requested by Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» His artwork more on live vs death ~ More scary side. Started making a difference in this play by adding in past & future elements to his head gear design. The cause & effect of humans made. To Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ», the white side of the head gear signifies spiritual to him. It’s an interesting interpretation of the head gear created. It took average 4ïžâƒŁ days to produce a head gear of the animal, except 5ïžâƒŁ days for the elephant 🐘 head gear

One of the cast member, Madam Hilda Looi đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŠ± has shared that her 1ïžâƒŁst play was when she was in 18 yrs old & this musical play is her 2nd involvement as Elephant 1🐘 Being the oldest cast member in this musical play, she is looking forward to working with the younger generation. While the youngest cast member, Ms Kirsten Wong đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž is not doing much acting before her involvement to this play as Monkey 1đŸ” It’s really a good 🆕 experience to learn new things. While another cast member, Ricky – shared that it’s his 1ïžâƒŁst play as Elephant 2🐘 in this musical play & a lot more to learn

Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» has added at the end of the official media launch that all cast members will start the rehearsal of this musical play in early Sept.

So, SiennyLovesDrawing would like to express special thank you to WWF Malaysia, Fused Labs Sdn Bhd & Artisus for trusting her doodle art passion & invited her to participate & painted on 2ïžâƒŁ tiger collectibles 🐅🐯

For this pair of Malayan Tigers figurines 🐅🐯, SiennyLovesDrawing would like to share her doodles inspiration cum interpretation as below,

The Malayan tiger is the national animal of Malaysia. Actually the Malayan Tiger is 1ïžâƒŁ of the smallest tiger species found throughout the southern & central parts of the Malay Peninsula & southern parts of Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 The Malayan tiger is a tiger from a specific population of the Panthera tigris subspecies that is native to Peninsular Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ This population inhabits the southern & central parts of the Malay Peninsula

The Malayan tiger is Totally Protected under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 & is classified as Critically Endangered under the IUCN Red List for Threatened Species since 2015

Meaning of the colours used to doodle on this pair of figurines:

Orange 🧡~ From the Malayan Tiger 🐅🐯 body colour

Black đŸ–€ ~ From the stripes of Malayan Tiger 🐅🐯

White đŸ€ ~ The original colour of the figurines, From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It symbolises purity

Yellow 💛 ~ From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It signifies royal colours of the Malay Rulers. Sienny would like to symbolise it as a bright future of Malaysia of her pair of Malayan Tigers figurines here

Red ♄ ~ From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It symbolises bravery. The tiger symbolises bravery & strength among Malaysians

Blue 💙 ~ From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It symbolises the unity of all Malaysians

Meaning of doodle patterns:

The circular doodle means focus in aiming 🎯 just like the tiger 🐅🐯

Another doodle pattern meant to be the growth of plant đŸŒżđŸŒ± to signifies the jungle 🌳🌳

Meaning of this pair of Malayan Tiger figurines gestures:

Hand gestures ~ STOP 🛑 poaching ‌
The Malayan tiger is already declining due to poaching, habitat loss & fragmentation or degradation, as well as prey loss & now Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) seems to be emerging as yet another threat

Purposely prepared no eyes 👀 on this pair of Malayan Tiger figurines, it’s because tiger cubs are born blind. Their eyes peek open between 6–12 days after birth & they gain full vision after 2 weeks from birth

Do check out her TikTok clip captured via đŸ“č🌐
