LAMAN 2008...Part 1


Today picked my fren Rohani (Noni) about 10 am, had roti jala for breakfast then we headed to Taman Tasik Perdana to have a peek at Laman 2008 (Landscape Fest) which is held every 2 years. Had to park my car at the Birds' Park then hitched a ride in their feeder buggy which cruises whole day around the lake to pick up visitors to the entrance gate. While I had to pay RM3, Noni is exempted cos she is warga emas and got a free mineral water bottle too. We made our rounds from booth to booth. Mostly were showing flowering plants and also herbal plants which I was attracted to since I started on my own little nursery. I was looking for an ulam called selom and bought 1 for RM5 which was more than what I would have paid if I were to buy it from Sg Buloh.
