This Agricultural Exhibition (locally known as Mo'o) is annual event and held on second  or third week of August every year in Prince of Songkla University, Hatyai Campus. It's start on 12 August and will end on 21 August 2011. The event for this year is more bigger than previous year and this is 4th year I visited this event. Normally I went there by public transport and just 1 day trip, but this year drive my own and stay there for few days.

Mo'o venue - other plants vendors

My focus on the event of course for an Orchids, but it not just that! there are a lots of varieties of plants sale including gardening needs and latest machines for farmers. Even though there are a lots of attractions and new vendors, orchid still a big attractions! More vendors are sale orchid plants and orchid needs. Other flower? So many varieties!








My point of view, this event is more like MAHA show, which held every two years in Serdang, Malaysia. Last time I think, this events is more bigger than Malaysia. Now after a few times of organizing Agricultural show in Malaysia, MAHA Show is more bigger than this festival. The much intention and interesting here is the new technologies of hybridizing plant and gardening needs. Every year there are plenty of new hybrid plant, not just flower plants, but also fruits plant. You can see the new hybrid of coconut plant, which can harvest after only 1 1/2 years! The fruit? So many!


The mango plant also quite interesting, new hybrid with red color skin! I think this is hybridizing with Nam Dok Mai variety, never seen this in Malaysia. They ask me to try....but cannot try...because I'm fasting, maybe next time! Also have big size of banana....so big I think, do not know the how to pronounce it, because they pronounce in in Thais ;) 
I have posted last year article here!







Acara ini di adakan setiap tahun pada bulan Ogos minggu ke-2, tahun in jatuh dalam bulan puasa lah, tahun lepas pun sama juga, tahun depan akhir puasa pula. Acara ini mula pada 12 Ogos dan berakhir pada 21 Ogos 2011. Ini dah tahun ke-4 lawatan ke sini. Seronok giler...datang ke sini macam-macam ada ;) Tahun ini acara di adakan lebih besar...tapi tidaklah sebesar pameran MAHA yang di adakan 2 tahun sekali di Serdang tu.


Apa yang di jual? Macam-macam ada...tapi fokus utama tentulah kepada orchid. Yang lain? Menarik juga...terutama hibrid baru pokok kelapa (nyioq...orang utara kata). Pokok nyioq ni boleh berbuah selepasa 1 1/2 tahun aja! Mula-mula memang tak percaya...tapi memang dah ada yang tanam dan terbukti benar! Buahnya...mak aaiii...memang banyak sekali! Kurang lebih20 biji setandan. Ada hibrid mangga dari Nam Dok Mai...tapi kulitnya warna merah. Nampak sedap giler...tapi tak boleh nak rasa lah coz berpuasa. Mungkin lain kali. Buah pisang...pun ada yang terbaru...bentuk kurang lebih pisang 'abu' atau 'awak'....orang utara panggilannya begitulah....kalau tempat lain tak tahu pulak nam pisang ni di panggil pisang apa, saiznya ....besar dan berbaloi kalau dapat makan pisang ni! Selain tu...buah anggur...aduh...sedapnya. Dah tanam di rumah tapi tak ada lah sebesar pokok ni lagi!
