In Memory of Malaysia Bird Photographer : Choo Tse Chien

I opened Nelson Khor Facebook this morning and got a sad & shocking news
Choo Tse Chien passed away yesterday at 2pm.  He had a cardiac arrest at q young age of 41
I knew him from a few birding trips at Fraser's Hill and Bukit Tinggi... wonderful nice chap, and he sends me 2 CD of the bird song of SEA free of charge ... the Bird Photography community will surely miss you...
Condolences to all family members

This picture was taken by him at Bukit Tinggi while  waiting for Orange-headed Thrush in January 2010
