INTERNATIONAL flower show, my foot. Antarabangsial, konon

You know what’s the problem with our local ministries and councils? Want the word International so much in everything. Kepala hotak engkau.

So, they have this so called International Flora Show at the Penang Botanical Gardens. Since I have only two younger kids with me and nowhere else to go, we decided to go over and let the kids enjoy the cameras a bit.


KNN, they charged RM3 for parking when normal times, it is only 30 sen. And the bloodsucker parking boys allowed the cars to park in a haphazard manner so that they can squeeze in more cars. Thus causing bottle necks everywhere. It does not help that the cars are mostly out of towners all crammed into one van and waiting for them to alight is like taking a dead body down from the Black Maria. If my atm is there, he sure fight with the parking boys. He will sure insist to pay according to the rates charged by the MPPP which is 30 sen. Only I dem chicken shit and dare not tell the, the, the….ok, I shall keep the reference from this blog. Pundek betul. (added : My atm asked me why I didn’t challenge the parking bois to hentam my car if I refuse to pay the RM3 KNN)


And you know what? KNN, there is not even a single stalk of rose. All bunga kek wa, some boring adendiums or fu gwei hwa and the orchids I have seen a thousand times already. Niamah.

Blardy hell, what sort of International is this? International my foot. And the orchids were all hidden on this mud patch and my feet got muddy just standing there. Cilaka.

BTW, in case you wonder why the below photo looks yellowish, it is because I adjusted the white balance for some shaded shots. Then, when I came out in the open, I forget to adjust it back. Cilaka, how to remember so many buttons wor.


Lucky my kids are so adorable and I had fun shooting them instead. And my Nikon AhKua D40 is soooo nice.

Nah, two flowers. My 4 years old son took wan.

So, don’t. Go. International.

Niamah, let’s shoot the organiser.

  1. terence – Pundek. You never read issit? No flowers worth my time lah. But my 11 yrs old took very nice macro shots of the flowers with the Pentax M20 got lah.

  2. The Penang State government does this every year; organize something so-called international but ‘forget’ to sort out the car parks and other logistics, then allow the ulats to charge ridiculour prices. It’s been going on year after year, and people complain the same complaints year after year. But your smiling CM just continues to smile and does nothing.
