The beautiful Slipper Orchid

Just so you know, I was once an orchid collector about 15-20 years ago where I enjoyed collecting the many unique jungle species of orchids and my personal favorite was the Slipper Orchid.

I usually got them on my many travels around Malaysia and the hardest part was getting them to grow in the city. I no longer collect orchids nowadays. 

For avid flower and garden lovers, there is also the Royal Floria Putrajaya 2015 which will take place in Putrajaya during the same time as the Penang event.

Those in Kuala Lumpur can catch the Putrajaya Floria Festival, and for those heading up north during early June, you can catch the Penang Floral Festival there.
