Wallace Trail, Dairy Farm Park

Fungus that resembles cream cracker

tattered fungus look so much better than the perfect umbrella

Germinating seed pods every where... each fighting for survival in the undergrowth

further growth

Wallace trail, fallen young branch of African Tulip.

This one comes with a longer stalk

More chance to seek out the sun light?

no tigers nowsaday

plenty of streamers in Wallace Trail

deep cut from ex-creepers?

Steps.. luckily a very short flight before leveling out

Another species of Zamziba yam - air yam

Infant snail.

Childhood 'pop-pop' found in Singapore !Passiflora foetida but this one is far from growing into a full fruit. Let me know where else you can find this in Singapore. The ripen orange berry is nice to eat!
see my miri's entry of this species

Bukit timah Reserve - Nth visit. Feb 20,2011

We pick a relatively simple trails - Southview, peep at the two caves again at Cave Path,  up the steps at Rengas, join the mainroad, branched off to the Submit Path and back the main road walking down the steep slope instead of up..Oranges, dragon fruits and small bottle of H20 fueled this short walk.

Merbau's bark.

Holed bark.
Wise man's gift. but which tree is that- Gaharu?
  Gaharu,  Aquilaria malaccensis
Passiflora laurifolia picked up along the main road. Not sure where is the vine.

Intsia palemanica,  Merbau
