Telang 18


My Green Sanctuary is a must have coffee table book for the garden aficionados to be added in their collection. The book is written and published by Pn.Jamaliah Bt Hamdan who is the managing director of Serigreen Garden & Landscape Sdn Bhd. Her love and fondness for nature, plants and Malaysia is what gave her the idea to publish “My Green Sanctuary. The book contains a collection of over 700 photos of lush green spaces that enhance the comfort of 30 personal and private homes, historic natural treasures of public parks and natural attractions. The inspiration behind the creation of this coffee table book is when Pn.Jamaliah realize that there are limited coverage and recognition towards the beautiful garden landscapes in Malaysia. Thus, this book is published as an appreciation towards the beautiful landscape in Malaysia and the author hopes to spread the love of preserving and even inspire others to create their own green sanctuary wherever they are.


“When life gets fast-paced and hectic, gardens can be greatly therapeutic. Green spaces promise a sense of serenity, rejuvenation and an opportunity to learn about the nature, as well in homes, hotels and public parks, wherever we create it.

Venture through the open gates of 30 awe-inspiring parks and gardens around peninsular Malaysia: from creatively cultivated home environments and refreshing commercial spaces in the city to unique terraced plots and charming countryside escapes”


My Green Sanctuary contents is packed with wonderful and inspiring gardens that is either assessable to public which includes public parks, hospitality and commercial properties such as Taiping Lake Gardens, Taman Botani Perdana Kuala Lumpur, Habitat Penang Hill, Westports Malaysia Sdn Bhd and many more.
