Earlier this week, I went to Sungai Buloh for an intended mission (will tell more later). If you do not know, Sungai Buloh is a haven for flowers and plants lovers. Those nurseries at Sungai Buloh used to be handled by leoprasy patients. I’m not sure about now though. And I just found out Jalan Sungai Buloh (old trunk road) where the nurseries are operating is also known as Selangor Green Lane. The operators are currently in a tussle with Yayasan Selangor. I just hope the nurseries will still be there come 20, 30 years… after all they are unique to Sungai Buloh and Selangor.
I haven’t been to that area for quite some time and due to some road changes, I ended up lost. Oh yeah, I took the Guthrie highway and then ended up in KL, Jalan Duta and then from Kepong to Sungai Buloh back. LOL To think that I used to go there a lot during my younger days… *smacks forehead* We missed the turning to Jalan Sungai Buloh at Jalan Kuala Selangor (I swear the Sungai Buloh sign were missing!) When we left Sungai Buloh, I make sure I take note of the turning so that we know the direction next time. It’s tricky. The road sign didn’t say Sungai Buloh but to some residential areas I think (best bet is Kampung Melayu Subang). Years back, we took the old Subang Airport road.
Okay enough talking. Please enjoy the photos below…
I think I have more plants than flowers photos as I was attracted to the soothing greens.
Beautiful Koi fishes in a pond. The mermaid sat above a stone beside the pond on the lookout for her lover. Hehe This koi photo is one of my favorite – the combination of ‘sparkling’ water wave and the koi fishes. That place was really beautiful. I saw the ‘no photography’ signage after that hence I keep my camera. I’m a good girl huh?
Magenta hibiscus. This is no ordinary hibiscus.
It’s larger than my 2 hands put together. Saw this species in the nursery near my house too. When I first saw it, my lower jaw dropped to the ground. Haha
What business? I’ll tell you in the next post. 😛
p/s: I remember there used to be a lot more nurseries. Now only a handful.
