FLORIA 2015

THE ENTRANCE
THE FLOWERS
THE WATER ELEMENT
LAYOUT


My wife and me are regular visitors to FLORIA PUTRAJAYA.This is its 8th edition.Previously,it was managed by Putrajaya Corporation but for this year,it is given to a company wholly owned by Putrajaya.It is a flower festival with international participation and also a good opportunity to buy flowers to plant in our own private gardens.

For me,it is not just walking around in  BIG GARDEN but it is a great ooportunity to snap photos of flowers that I seldom see and their creative arrangements never fail to attract me.Flower industry is a billion dollars business in Europe and I do hope that my country can be successful in this business as well.Overall,I saw a great improvement in management,layout,pedestrians movement and facilities but the contents i.e flowers was not as good as the 2010 Flower Festival.

I love flowers,especially tulips in Keukenhof but I am not a gardener like my wife.At home,she takes care of our small garden.She  has green fingers,but I have click fingers.My role is only to take photos.We do the best we can.Well,life is like that folks.

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?





'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

MARKET PLACES

ON RAINS

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
