From across the road, sighted an odd looking pair of the Fishtail palms in the foregrounds of the Medan Mara at Jalan Raja Laut. One looking fine while the other, on the right, looked rather unwell, its top unceremoniously and prematurely topped. By past observations, these are among the most luxuriant of palms with their well aligned, multi leaflet fronds.
But all's not doom and gloom for this pair. Looking up, it amazes me with its exciting "star burst" canopy. What a mesmerizing feature when it's only a handful of tidy fronds and hey presto! such a beautiful star against the clear sky...
How not to keep on looking at the bright side of things? Nature's art is everywhere, just need to "see" it and appreciate its mystical wonder :)
As for the unfortunate one, believe it's been under attack of some kind, diseased or man made, looking at the long crack line on its trunk, am unsure :(
