National Museum - Empire of Nature ( 7/9-21/10 2007)

Running out of flora images for your foto shoot ? Why not visit the museum and find out how many native plants / fruits can you recognise from this marvelous collection. You get to see different types of rattan plants ( including a [Gloriosa Superba mistaken as rattan], yams, horn bills, medicine plants, bamboo rat.. collected by orang asli. Go admire the cursive calligraphy and the jawi on most entries.

The well designed pamphlet is a keepsake. .. so pretty. If you have deep pocket the 2 volume of William Farquhar Collection costs just over S$856... may be may be not.
