As an artsman, Samad has the superb ability to learn quickly. The 'wau bulan' above is one of his first work; but already a wonderful piece of art. It was fielded during the 2006 11th Pasir Gudang Kite Festival. It is still well kept at his home.
Samad was the Champion in the National Competition in the Moon Kite Category at the 2008 4th Borneo International Kite Festival in Bintulu, Sarawak. As I look through my lense to capture his greatest moments on the night of 24 August 2008, I did not realize that his success will be shortlived and brought to an abrupt conclusion. Samad passed away on 23 October 2008. He will be sadly missed and this note is a tribute to him. AL-FATIHAH.
