Finding peace and granting hope.
A kelong is an off-shore wooden platform constructed primarily for fishing purposes. The techniques used are simple. For example, nets are positioned according to the direction of the tide to trap fish, and lights are used to attract mollusks at night. Despite its simplicity, a kelong is able to sustain itself effectively. It was this concept of self-sustainability that inspired the founders - Lincoln and Daisy Ong - to start up Blue Mountain Kelong (BMK).
BMK first cast its nets in 2002, spreading dreams of a better future for inhabitants of the beautiful Jemara Island. The founders envisioned it to serve as a platform to empower self-sustaining change for their benefit, and for urbanites to find refuge from the stress of modern city life, rediscovering relationships amidst nature with those they love.
