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
commercial buildings.

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. ;-)

The Golden Palm Tree Luxury Resort

Gosh! My mouth went agape when I opened the newspapers on Tuesday, 6 July 2010.  The first eco-friendly sea resort in Sepang, Selangor is now open.

All these months, I'd been like an ostrich with my head stuck in the sand and suddenly, an ultra luxurious palm shaped resort had risen out of the blue (sea, literally!) right at my own doorstep.

A mega, breath taking development like this, one can only imagine lies ostentatiously somewhere in the Persian Gulf.

Billed the longest coastal resort in Asia, 1km out into the sea (the Straits of Malacca) it makes me drool even just to visit its website, let alone spend a day there. Dream on...

According to an online property agency - "MANY WILL ADMIRE, FEW WILL OWN"
Alas, how true, count me as one of the former. Nevertheless, here's the URL so that many more can admire and/or own.

p.s. aptly named, the Sepang triangle has a large cultivation of the cocos nucifera (golden malay coconut).
