The “Phua Chu Kang” effect [People at the ICCS]

A clean and cheerful Stephane Bayen from NUS just before the Pandan mangrove cleanup trying for the “Phua Chu Kang” effect. He had rushed out to get yellow booties the previous night to ensue he could work effectively and his wife had suggested adding the mole and curly hair. Wigs were in short supply so he gamefully went for the squatting effect for the camera.

Stephane is an environmental toxicologist working on bio-amplification of toxins in the mangrove food chain. This day he decided to take a macroscopic perspective by contributing to the cleanup. He’s not stranger to volunteering at the mangroves, having guided with us for the Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk in 2002.
