For those heading to this year's flower and garden festival, make sure you check the weather and also the timings.

Weekends will see a very large crowd here, so if you do not like crowds, go on the weekdays as it will be less crowded. You might even bump into me there as I will be going due to my love for orchids. 

There is nothing more beautiful than seeing the wonderful creations with flowers and plants here at the Floria Putrajaya Flower and Garden Exhibition.
