Resplendent Royal Garden of Royal FLORIA Putrajaya 2015

Resplendently majestic - These are the words that are best suited to describe the new Royal Garden of Seri Menanti. This jaw-dropping garden will awe landscape architects and it will definitely impress visitors to the Royal FLORIA Putrajaya 2015, Flower and Garden Festival scheduled for nine days from May 30, 2015 in Anjung Floria, Precinct 4 of the beautiful intelligent garden city of Putrajaya. Note: The Seri Menanti Royal Museum was originally a palace for the Negeri Sembilan Royal family Etched and draped in the finest tapestry of art and cultural values, the sight-to-behold resplendent garden with the concept of “The Legacy of a Customs Land” makes a grand entrance to the next year’s festival to demonstrate that this country has always been upholding the sanctity of the monarchy. And, what a novelty way to create the aura of the royal institution’s presence by translating the crafty motifs of the iconic royal palace of Seri Menanti in Negeri Sembilan into an elaborated royal garden! Royal Ruler on dais at Seri MenantiSeri Menanti Singgahsana   The concept of the garden, “The Legacy of a Customs Land” is truly a reflection of the local customs of Negeri Sembilan that have existed for centuries. The local customs include a singgahsana (the royal throne where the Sultan sits) perched high up on a pedestal but this garden will portray a gazebo-like throne heavily focused on the royal yellow aura and ambience. Historically, the outdoor throne is a place of meeting between the royal heads of the state with his subjects on issues affecting the people and their well-being. There will also be a...

Great Mosques of Putrajaya – When Beauty Meets Serenity

For many, seeking serenity has different meanings. It takes on a different path for a believer who is immersed in his relations to God. In Putrajaya, your faith in God gets stronger when you witness and feel the path you have been looking for exude both elements, that is, beauty and serenity. It is always an issue of serenity meeting beauty in many ways than one. For sure, you will be awed by the beauty and the serenity that these two great mosques in Putrajaya exude. Putra Mosque Putra Mosque or Masjid Putra is truly a great mosque, as it straddles across 1.37 hectares of land. Touted as one of the most modern mosques in the world, Putra Mosque is located within the 600-hectare of Putrajaya Lake. Overlooking the die-for scenic view of the lake, one cannot deny that the mosque is Putrajaya’s most distinctive landmark. It is located next to Perdana Putra which houses the Malaysian Prime Minister’s office and Dataran Putra (Putra Square), a large public square with flagpoles flying Malaysian states’ flags. All these three areas are linked to wide and large boulevards as far the eyes can see. It is like being right there at the boulevard of Champs dé Élysee but the view is even more fascinating without the array of high fashion boutiques like the one in Paris. From the onset, Putra Mosque, built in June 1997, looks like a reddish-pinkish rose clay building, as it was built with rose tinted granite which gives its desert-pink hue that offsets the cengal woodwork on the doors, windows and panels. It has an unusual and...

Of Jaw-Dropping Floral Display and the Pride that Came with it – Part 2

2012 FLORIA Putrajaya Bougainvillea or bougainvillea spp, one of the hardiest and enduring flowering plants man has seen and grown, had its origins in South America. There are now about 120 Bougainvillea cultivars and hybrids in Malaysia alone with three main species found in this country ie B.glabra, B.spectabilis and B.peruviana. It is interesting to note that B.glabra or strangely known as Mrs. Butt arrived in Malaysia in 1923, followed by a B. Mrs McClean in 1933. Source: elitetravel00.blogspot.com Due to its nature being hardy and enduring, a festival theme of “Enduring Beauty” swept the heart and soul of the organisers off their feet (pun intended) to make Bougainvillea as the theme flower at the 2012 FLORIA Putrajaya, Flower and Garden Show. The event was held for nine days from June 30, 2012 at Putrajaya’s Waterfront in Precinct 2. The festival saw a large exhibit of more than 100 varieties of Bougainvillea flowers in various forms in the likes of topiary, bonsai and cultivars in different colours, dwarfs and climbers adorning gardens, meadows and general areas. There were more than 10 international participants who went on to display their landscape and floral designs but the local exhibitors took centre stage with their collection of bougainvillea. In fact, the festival created its first imprint in the Malaysian Book of Records when it recorded “The Most Collection of Bougainvillea”.

Cherishing a Lasting and Monumental Friendship

China-Malaysia Friendship Garden A monumental milestone has been marked to strengthen the warm and cordial relationship between Malaysia and China with the setting up of a China-Malaysia Friendship Garden in the city of Dongguan.   It is not just any garden, it is a mutual manifestation and symbol of respect and honour to the diplomatic relations between the two countries, since the last visit of Allahyarham (The Late) Tun Haji Abdul Razak, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia to China 40 years ago. One of the early initiatives that Tun Razak’s son, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, the current and the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia, did when he came into office was to reinforce the already cemented relations with Beijing. This has impressed the Chinese Government and their prefectural Governments in China all over to further understand the long traditions of friendship and diplomatic relations both countries had enjoyed over four decades. In a statement issued by the Dongguan city prefecture Government, it said the China-Malaysia Friendship Garden is similar to the one that is set up in Putrajaya, which is called Malaysia-China Friendship Garden, a Lingnan-styled garden complete with distinctive Chinese elements and character, located at Anjung Floria. The garden in Dongguan city is named Zhi Yuan. Zhi means the aquaintance of friends while Yuan takes a symbolic meaning as an alluring scene of a meeting point, embodying the concept of “one view, same direction”. China-Malaysia Friendship Garden - Anjung Floria Putrajaya The 0.6 acre (0.24 hectare) garden is sited on the permanent grounds of the annual Putrajaya Flower and Garden Festival known as Royal FLORIA Putrajaya,...
