Since then, he had produced many innovations including a glazed stain-glass effect and the double-resist technique in 1982. He also studied tapestry in Paris in 1968-1969. Executed in vivid colours with a stain glass effect, this batik work is an intriguing depiction of women folk carrying baskets.

          Dato’ Tay Mo Leong creates this arresting vision. Charming and exquisite, it engages the viewer for long moments before they comprehend that this piece is an encapsulation of the charm of the rustics. He cleverly combines the elements of space, form and colour to work magnetically with one another, as he captures a a wooden house or shop lot with subjects on the foreground, clad in colourful attire, with some planting bamboo into the ground. The crackling lines of the batik that decorate the piece here and there prove as a striking combination with the setting, making this truly an exquisite piece. He studied art at the Provincial Taipei Normal College (Fine Art) in Taipei from 1957 to 1960.

          It's a parade, and you could hear the marching band playing the popular jazzed-up version of When The Saints Go Marching In by Louis Armstrong. It's a pretty spectacle with musicians with bagpipes in Scottish outfit, kilts et al with the tartan patterns. While the song is originally about Afro-American emancipation, the 'Saints' was probably localised to refer to the St Xavier's Institution, which is just further down the road from Merlin Hotel, then owned by Boon Siew, and who commissioned Tay Mo Leong to paint the marching band originally for the hotel's bar but it had since been removed. Incidentally, there is a World pipe band championships which is held annually in Glasgow, Scotland.
