Penang - Kebun Bunga ( Botanic Garden)

Two pulais not far from pong-pong lined
entrance but just cant get
close to them

Queen of flowers - Bungor, Lagerstroemia loudonii flowering.
leaf monkey - click to see his face!

A vine with pretty pink orchid-like petals

Most of the leaves were shedded and scattered around the base
of the tree. I picked up 'bowling-pin' shaped flower tube...
A climber with bright colored round fruit of Trichosanthes quinuangulata

A red seed pod!

Close to the hotel Cititel i found
Love in a mist, Passiflora foetida
Flower ( above) and unripe fruit (below)
