泰戈爾

我們急匆匆地趕路,忘了路邊籬笆上的鮮花

We haste on without heed,
forgetting the flowers on the roadside hedge. Yet they breathe
unaware into our forgetfulness, filling it with music.

Rabindranath Tagore

SMALL WORK

After 12 years, what supposed to be "Upgrading and Landscaping of Jalan St. Patrick" actually turned out to be "Landscaping the road side in front Teck Guan Company".

There is no upgrading to the one kilometer long road. No landscaping on the opposite side of the road and other section of the road.

This is a tree with a unique beauty and is human created not for the tree beauty but for the maintenance of the electric pole beside it.

Allowing this tree to grow freely to its height (as the left side of the tree) the power cables at the right would be blocked and in troubles. Gardener regularly keep this side of the tree trimmed to its should be height (as the right side of the tree).

This tree could be view in Google Map : https://www.google.com.my/maps/

Slow torture to a tree

Slow torture to a tree by human

This is well grown mango tree in a driving school compound in Sabah. Someone deliberately want to kill this young tree by burning at it trunk. Before burning, the tree bark at the main trunk also deliberately been cut and removed.

The purpose of killing this tree is unknown. But believed to be related to traditional superstition from Indonesia. Killing a tree may has something similar as sacrifice a hen, or a black cat or a goat to please the evil spirit in return for divine protection.

Certain Indonesian who believe in ANTU lives in trees will start "slow-killing" that tree when they do not feel comfortable to see it every day.

The destruction include Cutting and removal of tree bark follow with Burning

While there are many NGO preventing cruelty to cats, dogs and animals, there is no NGO in preventing cruelty to trees such as this dying mango tree. Someone should start to organize one

Corypha umbraculifera (Talipot palm)

Flowering Palm
Corypha umbraculifera (Talipot palm)

These feather-like branches are so magnificent, like the crowning of a tree before it dies.


Corypha umbraculifera (Talipot palm) is native to southern India (Malabar Coast) and Sri Lanka.


This one of the largest palms in the world can reached heights of up to 25 m, with stems up to 1.3 m in diameter.

This fan palm (Arecaceae tribe Corypheae) has large palmate leaves up to 5 m in diameter, with a petiole up to 4 m, and 100 over leaflets.

Talipot palm bears the largest inflorescence of any plant, 6-8 m long, consisting of one to several million small flowers borne on a branched stalk that forms at the top of the trunk.

The Talipot palm is monocarpic, flowering only once, when it is 30 to 80 years old. It takes about a year for the fruit to mature, producing thousands of round yellow-green fruit 3-4 cm diameter, containing a single seed.

The plant dies after fruiting.
