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 Pink October Month

How the month has flown!  This belated post is in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness, a global campaign held during the month of the 10 each year for the last 25 years!

Being in the "pink of health" has and always will be a notable ideal until some malignant cell illness strikes us or our loved ones or anyone we know, that this colour term suddenly takes on its appropriate true meaning.

However, being aware and informed is half the battle won.  Detailed information can be sought at the Pink Ribbon International Organisation.

And for the first time ever, the historical Sultan Abdul Samad Building in KL was 'dressed' in pink to highlight this noble cause!
