Taman Negara ( Malaysia National Park) Kuala Tahan

Last week we went to Malaysia National Park aka Taman Negara. Taman Negara covering 3 states; including Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu covering some 4,343 km² and is noted as one of the oldest tropical rain forest. We went there through Kuala Tahan, Pahang entrance which is more "developed" compare to others entrance because Kuala Tahan entrance is more convenience ( accessible by car)   compare to others that accessible only by boat. Beside that Kuala Tahan entrance is where "the world longest canopy walkway" located. The walkway is 510 meter in length and up to 45m height from ground. We spend 3 days 2 night there and it's lot of joy.

Best time to visit Taman Negara is from February to September ( to avoid monsoon season )
bring insect repellent ( to keep insect away from you)
comfortable wear (i.e  t-shirt, high humidity )
sport shoe with sock ( leeches is common in rain forest )
drink plenty of water
bring some medication in case of falling sick
bring camera to capture amazing fauna and flora
go for the longest canopy walk in the world ( it's kind of fun, walking up to 45m above the trees where you can clearly see the layer of the rain forest canopy, full with flora and fauna)

World Orchid Conference 2011

Went to World Orchid Conference ( WOC) 2011 at Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore last week. WOC is held every 3 years in different cities around the world. It's open to public from 13-20th Nov 2011.Displays at WOC consists of amateur orchid societies, commercial grower and   municipal that want to introduce their city. There is also some art, decoration, photography, drawing ,ect related to orchid being exhibited. Overall, the 2011 world orchid conference is good, but the arrangement make us difficult to compare the winning plants. They display all the plant in the landscape competition area according to country, so there is no way categories comparison. It's is easier for visitor to compare the winning plants if they are side by side. 

just upload some of the photos ( too much)

For your information, the favorite vanilla flavor  is from orchid and Paphiopedilum is called slipper orchid.
