Since early 2013, some things were going at the back lane parallel to Jalan Sultan Iskandar and Jalan Masjid.
Some things interesting were brewing, and known the the locals.
When the local newspaper the scheme, the activities at the back alley was revealed.
“Orchid – Tropical Treasure” is the theme of Floria 2013 at Putrajaya.
Today is the beginning of the 9 days flower and garden festival (22 to 30 June 2013).
My past experience tell me that the flowers may not last for 9 days.
2013 is the 14th trade fair for Malaysian International Food & Beverage (MiFB).
The trade show is meant for F&B industry but it opens to public on the last day. I got the chance to taste the Thai curry with shrimp. Very nice.
visitor without name card has to pay RM10/pax as entrance fee.
The village is a made-for-tourist attraction to let visitors experience the lifestyles of 5 ethnic groups in Sabah inside one village.
The 2 hours guided tour is best taken at the morning session (10am).
2pm session would be too hot and 6pm would donate too much blood to the mosquitoes.
I recalled this street was known as Bond Street.
After breakfast, we walked from our hotel to Gaya Street. It looked pretty much unchain since my last visit.
I remembered the seashell, flowers and pet stores.
There are stores selling herbal tea and bird nest drink.
Mount Kinabalu is a prominent landmark that stands 4,095m above sea level.
With diversified flora and fauna, the national park has been listed as World Heritage Site. I came across this weird looking insect and have no idea if it is a type of spider. It looked like an alien spaceship with long legs.
Our group made a day tour without climbing Mt. Kinabalu. We stopped by Desa Dairy Farm to taste the ice cream and chocolate milk.
