'Appearances could be deceptive' ― the saying is seldom so true as in the case of this double‐storey bungalow. From beyond the gates, it looked really much like an ordinary type of house. The chirping of its many feathered occupants soon gave us a clue to the species they seemed to dominate the house.

The owner, a 32–year–old British Exhibition Manager and a Bachelor ‘by choice‘, first came to this country about 6 years ago. Having grown up on a farm surrounded by all kinds of animals (both his parents are farmers) he naturally wanted to live in the same sort of environment.

“This country is not exactly the place for country living, but it is an ideal spot to build up a garden,“ he told us as he led the way outdoors. ”When I first moved in there was not a plant in sight and look at my garden five and a half years later!”

He is extremely proud of his efforts at gardening, potting and pruning, the result of which has given him immense satisfaction.

His garden runs right round the house ― a multitude of aging fruit trees and giant swaying coconut palms living harmoniously with potted ferns, cactus, and creepers. It seems a perfect environment for his birds, approximately 200 of them, ranging from Robins and fan—tailed pigeons to laughing thrush and a cockatoo. In fact, he said that the idea of keeping birds was quite unplanned. (He was walking around a neighborhood looking for plants when he came across four baby doves who were left to care for themselves). The number grew steadily over the years and he`s since had to build five huge aviaries and ´furnish´ them with a natural jungle habitat.

A true farmer at heart (he attended an agricultural college back home) he also keeps a few ducks also chickens. “Yes they‘re all a pampered lot ― I spent about $200⁄‐ a month on fresh fruit and greens to keep them in top form.“

The house reflects his homely lifestyle. ”Every bit of furniture is purely functional ― my crystal is the only touch of high class here.” He uses up most of his time out on the patio also regards it as his actual living area. ″My nine cats love it too,″ he grinned and, as if to prove him right, two of his favorites settled comfortably on the cane lounge.

His jobs entail traveling from time to time and he often brings back interesting finds from China and other ASEAN countries, ”To go with my garage furniture bits.”
