Hmm...spied a few forlorn and displaced palms at the far end of a shopping mall compound. The blistering afternoon sun unleashed its power on these helpless plants leaning on a wall. But what on earth are these dug outs doing out there. It's hard to imagine... more like waiting to be baked ?
|lean on me|
There was a guy working nearby so I thought best to ask him. He just pointed to the direction inside the mall. It then clicked that there were palms exhibited inside as part of the Ramadhan festival. But that's been nearly a month since the exhibits were first put up.
Were these excess to requirements or were they meant for replacements as the earlier palm exhibits had since shown signs of distress and turned yellow, spectacularly wilting in high end shopping territory.
Considering it's only another couple of days to the festival date, I'm not sure if these will eventually grace the surrounds in the cooler air-conditioned arena or suffer the consequences of neglect.
