Butterfly Park, Orchid & Hibiscus Farm @ Kuala Lumpur
Was at KL Orchid and Hisbiscus Farm and Butterfly Park few weeks ago. Finally managed to select a few good ones out of the many crappy ones to show, lol. Compared to Penang’s Butterfly Farm, KL’s is not so enjoyable because the number of butterflies in the latter is very much lesser. For the nicer and more colorful ones, I had to stalk them!
Starting off with my most favorite photo. A lotus I took beside a small pond in the Orchid and Hibiscus farm. I have even made a wallpaper out of it. If you like it, do save it yeah. And I didn’t put any watermark on the wallpaper so you are free to use it
Then followed by my favorite photo in the Butterfly Park. The entrance fee is RM15!
It was pretty sad to see some really big and colorful butterflies already laying dead on the ground..
Don’t worry this scorpion is not running around freely. It is among many other species kept in the exhibition centre just before you exit the park.
Flowers laced with honey water are placed at various corners to attract the butterflies. Banana is also used.
There’s a small pond with many tortoises hanging around.
A colorful caterpillar before morphing into a butterfly, nice eh. They’re very hard to notice for hiding under the leaves.. so keep your eyes wide open lol. That’s all I have to show from [tag]Butterfly[/tag] Park. Let’s move on to the photos from Orchid Farm for some [tag]flower[/tag]s.
Hibiscus, our national flower. Besides red, there’s also yellow, orange and pink colored ones. Thanks to my noob photographing skills, this is the only one I dare to show lol.
KL [tag]Orchid Farm[/tag] is opened to the public free of charge. Besides admiring the flowers, you can also buy a few pots back if you want. There are quite a number of stalls to choose from. I knew this place existed in [tag]Kuala Lumpur[/tag] but I didn’t bother visiting before, thinking it should be nothing special. Well, I was wrong. Instead of going to the mall for the 100th time, this farm is a good alternative to spend your weekends.

**Nov 2001 update: Life Centre is undergoing major renovations but Munakata is still open for business as usual. About a year ago I went to Munakata‘s Japanese Buffet and I was happy with their authentic Japanese dishes served in the ala-carte buffet. Since then I have been to a couple of Japanese buffets with some

Hidden behind Istana Negara along Jalan Bellamy is an array of ikan bakar stalls next to each other forming a medan ikan bakar. Despite its secluded location it gets extremely crowded especially during lunch hour. Not knowing which stall to go for, we chose Gerai No.3 that was the busiest among all. Three huge frying

Next time, if you around KL Sentral and feeling hungry, why not hop over to Mr.Chiam’s Fritters stall and help yourself with some delicious pisang goreng, curry puff, kuih bakul and sesame balls. They are all made fresh and most importantly cheap and affordable, something that’s fast becoming rare in KL nowadays. When I first

In Kuchai Lama there’s a hawker stall called Cao Cao specialized in selling BBQ Lamb. Yes, you’re seeing this right, the hawker stall actually shares the name with a Three Kingdom’s warlord lol. It’s a rare sight if you ask me because usually when lamb chop is mentioned, it’s associated with either Western Food stall
