We spent a weekend in Johor Bahru, Malaysia during the May 1st weekend and I was lucky enough to watch the sunrise through the hotel room window. The room we stayed faced to the city. Although it is not a beautiful city view from the window, this morning sunrise was wonderful to watch.

Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West -Entrance
Steps to climb to the top of the Garden
Earlier I shared few posts with the photos captured at Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West. These are some of the photos which show the entrance of the garden. This garden lies in a large area of land and looks natural with huge trees and greens around.
With so many photo options, I always shared photos of a small land area and today photos are from the garden
entrance.

At the entrance, there are steps to climb to the top of the garden. I climbed once, but recently I avoided that always because I was with my son and for me it looks like difficult to climb this much steps with him. However, I remember the top of the garden is beautiful with landscape designs.

A Tale of a Hibiscus Flower
Hibiscus Flowers or commonly
named as Wada Mal/Sapaththu mal is a popular flower in Sri Lanka which
grows easily without much attention to it. In Sri Lanka, we find different
types of hibiscus flowers and featured flower is a variety which has double petals.
I have few captures to show
this flower’s life story. Hope you’ll find it interesting.

Here is a tale of a Hibiscus Flower.

Sal Mal

These beautiful flowers with
bit hard petals are with full of fragrance. In Sri Lanka we call these flowers
as ‘Sal Mal’, and it is commonly known as ‘Cannonball flowers’. (Botanical
name: Couroupita Guianensis)

A close capture of a Cannonball tree flower

A ‘Sal Tree’ is a sacred
tree for Buddhists. So, in Sri Lanka we like to offer these Cannonball flowers
(Sal Mal) to lord Buddha. It is so precious because, Prince Sidhuhath (later enlightened
as Lord Buddha) was born in a garden of ‘Sal trees’. Legends say that Queen
Maya Devi gave birth to prince Sidhuhath in ‘Lumbini Sal Garden’ and under a ‘sal
tree’. Still this place in Nepal is a major attraction of Buddhists all over
the world.

Cannonball Tree with flowers
I was lucky to find these
trees in Singapore, in different places and these captures are from the Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West.

Cannonball Tree fruits

It is said that these trees
are named as cannonball trees because of the cannon ball shaped fruits, which
are heavy and fall with a heavy force when the stems cannot bear those into the tree.Although Cannonball flowers are full of scent,these fruits are know for its foul stink smell.I don’t have experience with a fallen foul cannonball tree fruits,but could read as they are edible and with medicinal value in Ayurvedic medicine.
Cannonball tree flower buds-A Pagoda is inside the flowers? 🙂
Do you see the stems above
which the flower petals are already fallen? Due to its shape, we, in our
childhood days, used to say that there is a pagoda (A Buddhist stupa) inside
these flowers. We happily opened flower petals to see the Pagoda(stupa) inside
the flowers. 🙂 🙂

The ‘Sal Tree’ I found in
Ang Mo Kio Town Garden was also a comfortable home for another orchid plant and
these Orchid flowers gave a beautiful view  when I was watching the huge Sal tree from the
ground.
