Amazonia in Singapore - Experience Amazonia right at ur doorstep

Amazonia in Singapore ( 20 - 30 November 2009) Free admission.

It was Sunday Nov 29 .. looking for a place to get some materials for my blog. Then i came across Amazonia in Singapore 2nd last day @ City Hall Building basement. Sat through the interesting 1/2 hr movie.

Even the six-legged had bird-like plumes

Grating board

Golden Grass Capim Dourado ear ring Necklace with 'inorganic' (minerals) and 'organic' design..

The long arrows for shooting fish in shallow streams
.... matched with a simple bow the foto of which i didnt take.

Calabash fruit - I once saw a tree laden with big round fruits near Penang Hill. Read the description below for more information.

Nuts all sort of nuts .. few familiar faces here. ( spot the big monkey pot, Lecythis ollaria - pollinated by carpenter bees, and the rubber 'seed'. You can find them in our SBG)

Didn't realize there is a ID chart there till i saw this picture.
Should have read it. Note the famous red pea with black dot there.
Brazil nut shell used as vessel.
The camera's battery ran flat just
when i wanted to take another
interesting little tiny boxes arrangement from another exhibition...

On way back saw Npark people trying to remove the remaining stump of chainsaw felled 'largest' saga tree near MRT Exit St. Andrew Church. My memory still fresh from the Amazonia movie showing the scene of a fallen primary forest trunk..
