Salam and Good Day fellas...

Sudah lebih 6 bulan tak 'join' any orchid show....sebab semuanya buat hari Ahad...tak pernah ada peluang nak 'join' lagi. Sebabnya hari Ahad dah sibuk-sibuk nak balik ke tempat tak ter'update' lah blog ni sejak sekian lama.
Akhirnya setelah lebih 6 bulan ni...dapat juga 'join' walaupun sekadar melayan mata...sebab pokok tak ada standard nak bertanding buat kali ini.
Apapun tetap 'enjoy jumpa rakan-rakan orkid di sini...
So jamu matalah yer...
In Shaa Allah lepas ni 'partner' akan tolong update jika dia tak sibuk...dah jemput jadi author untuk OdD ;)

If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession.Love is about appreciation ~ Osho
