Floating World

One interesting thing I learned from the Sun Moon Lake farmers was this idea of growing crops and flowers in floating gardens.

If the Rajang River can be populated by little colourful gardens like these it would really add to the attraction of the Swan City!!


And how nice it will be for pretty ladies to row their boats and harvest crops like this in the river....life in the river would be cheerful and healthy!

More tourists would come and have a look at a new floating world.

Taiwan exports a lot of flowers to Singapore. These growers put a lot of hormones. After one season, your plants produce one miserable fruit. lol

Hi Ann
I heard about that..my kumquats too in one year cost me so much...they died after a few months. I never bought them again.
Now they florists are selling other more exotic flowers.
Have you heard about the Taiwan International Flora Expo 2010?
Interesting.

Hi ML....
Yes it would be a good idea if MMC would consider...the colours would make the lake beautiful...and probably the roots would absorb some of the pollution.....

Dear Ah Ngao
Hope you have a blessed Easter Weekend.

May God's blessings be with you.

Kamquats are going out of fashion now it seems. Same problem every where...smile.

Happy Easter to you and your family.....

Hope that we have more colours every where.....and also more will plant vegetables like my father and grandmother.

I was told you don't eat the kumquat, pumped up with lots of hormones.

Dear Ann
We were told kumquats for Chinese new year were poisonous and not meant for eating!!
I hope no kids had tried to eat them here...
