In November last year, Syarifah Nadhirah launched Recalling Forgotten Tastes, her first illustrated book featuring watercolour paintings of edible plants and traditional culinary practices of Orang Asli communities in Selangor and Negri Sembilan.

She recently expanded this project with an online component, a series of botanical paintings and videos collectively titled Sights And Sounds, which is available on her website.
