In 1992 I was involved with the landscaping of the administrative area of the SMDS plant (see inset). This job was one of the major landscaping works done by my company, Exxoplus Corporation Sdn Bhd. when it started operations in Bintulu in 1992. I was fortunate to have met Mr. H W Van der Woerdt who was the Construction Manager for the SMDS plant in Bintulu then. Pleased with my landscaping design proposal he later gave my company the job of actual planting the proposed design, besides just the design consultancy. This job kept me busy for the first few months since I started the company. Later in 1993, I did more landscaping jobs for the SMDS company especially in their housing area at Taman Matahari, Kidurong township. Below are some views of the administrative area taken on 30th July,1992 while on a site visit to the area.
