Hi All,

First of all, I want to wish Merry Christmas to all, which celebrate this special day. Secondly Happy New Year to all, hope next coming year is more success than this year.

I'm quite busy with new project at home now, planning to build 'kampung' house and new garden. Hopefully everything is fine and this project can finish before I fly to further my PhD. So tired to update my blog, even though I have many thing to publish. 

On Friday last week, my friends and I went to Alor Setar Orchid in Alor Setar, Kedah. The shows held beside, Stadium Darul Aman, Alor Setar, which open for 50 orchid categories. We just bring 3 orchid plants, because we don't have many good plants to enter this competition. The prize quite big, the 1st prize will take home RM150, 2nd is RM100 and 3rd with RM50. It's quite disappointed.We won only 1 prize in Cattleya category, but it's Ok, actually we didn't expect to win any prize.

Here is some pictures we captured during Alor SetarOrchid Show 2010.

Major price: Best Plant, Best Reserve and Best Species

    Marvelous pictures, friend. Especially like the Paphs and the plant that won best species is exquisite. What species is that?


  3. Thank you for introducing many species of orchids to me. Never realised that they were actually very colourful. Wow you must have many energy to give all the TLC needed and completing your master and furthering your PhD. Here I am struggling to complete in time my studies.
