LAMAN 2008

Are you interested in landscaping & gardening?? If yes, you should go and have a walk at The Malaysia International Landscaping and Gardening Festival (LAMAN), which is currently being held, at Perdana Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur from July 19 to July 27, 2008. It is organized by the National Landscape Department and Ministry of Housing and Local Government, hosted by DBKL and endorsed by the International Federation of Parks and Recreation Administration (IFPRA). Should have been posted this earlier huh?? For those in KL or Selangor, masih sempat bah pigi jalan2 this weekend… *wink-wink*

Last year, it was held in Putrajaya. But, I didn’t manage to make it. Pictures shown in the newspaper were wonderful & colourful too… When I saw the LAMAN 2008 advertisement in the newspaper, I told my hubby that we should just go and jalan-jalan. Besides, I know my mom gonna loves it. She loves flowers so much!! She always dreams to have a garden full of flowers in our house compound. That’s what she intended to do in our house in Beaufort. Guess she has to postpone the plan as she is staying with us in KL now. Can’t do gardening at the moment, as we are not staying in terrace house. Poor her… *sigh*

Few years back, during the Bougainvillea (Bunga Kertas) season, I remember she got various colors of the Bougainvillea and some of them were ‘married’!! Yeah... that’s what they call it ‘kena kasih kahwin”!! You just have to pick which two colors of the Bougainvillea, normally ppl will opt for either purple / pink with white or orange with white… Lop the respective branch of both colors, combine the lopped branches together, wrapped it with plastic and you just have to wait for the result… I hope that’s the correct way of doing it… Never really bother about it!! Heeehehe… But, of coz you have to pour water and fertilize them. That’s what you call gardening, rite??!!

Anyway, here’s few snaps from the LAMAN 2008. Only few of them as most of them are in video format. Have not learned the video uploading process yet… ^_^

We only spent 2 hours at the LAMAN as we reached there at 5pm. It’s a huge area covering 172 acre!! That's why nda buli singgah every point otherwise gelap sudah!! But, sure berpeluh la!! Parking will be a problem as well. *Phew* You may opt for free shuttle bus services at certain point i.e. KL Sentral.

For further info, please browse through the official link of LAMAN 2008 at By the way, entrance fee is RM3 for adult, RM1 for children 6-12 years and free for senior citizen, disabled and children below 6 years. Have fun guys…
