While researching native palms in Malaysia for this blog, I came across a very interesting and important
article as reported in The Star newspapers, Malaysia on January 06, 2004.
I've linked this url for personal interest and reference, as well as, information for those who are interested
in our diverse native palms, their existing threats and hopeful conservation.

As I Wander...
Living in tropical Malaysia, we tend to take the hot humid weather, thundery rainstorms and the spectrum of wild evergreen plants as a given.
Recently, I noticed more exotic plants making its way into landscaped home gardens, recreational parks, frontages of shopping malls and
Along kerb sides of residential streets and busy motorways, palms, trees and flowering plants make pleasant and interesting fringes.
This is a record of the various species "as I see it" for I am in awe of palms. Hence, my premise for this blog is that the global garden,
i.e. every physical garden (tended or untended), becomes a part of my, simply said, cyber palm garden. ;-)
