Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange and Church Camp.

Still remember the trip that i "korek"  my coin box to go? It was yesterday. It was 1 day church camp. Mamarazzi said just nice coz on the same day she saw there was an event in a gardening group. They were having a Plant Exchange/donation/giveaway activity in Bukit Jelutong. 

Hence, very early in the morning, Mamarazzi dumped dropped my at my former kindie...yes kindie coz though I have stopped going to kindie but attend their Funland programme every weekend. 

There they, send a bunch of us to the church for our fun camp. 

After dropping me, Papa and Mamarazzi zoom zoom to Bukit Jelutong lo. The organiser, BJ Green Rangers, were there very early in the morning. Already there were plenty of plants to be adopted on the table. 

Mamarazzi also dropped her two boxes full of plants on the table lo. Paiseh paiseh....all using nice pots but Mamarazzi's using recycled bottles. Ahemm...hentam la....after all when go home, they will still need to replant the plants kot...


 It was a plant galore according to her. There were Indian borage, basil, mints,  misai kucing, mulberry, curry leaves plant, spider plants, adenium, cactus, lily and many more that she lost track.

Many people came by and dropped plants and cuttings. They also bring home some plants.

Guess depending on the timing when ones arrived ; coz when the table were nearly empty, new people arrives ..they will drop their plants there and took new plants home.

Some plants owner stay back and wait for their plants to be adopted and to gives advices. It was fun listening to so many who are willing to share their experience.


 A young gardener looking for a plant for himself under his mom's guidance. That's right...start them young .

Mamarazzi noted that edibles plants were snapped up very fast. Hmmm....people listening to the call of planting edibles instead of flowers?

Anyway, she was very happy that all plants were adopted.


 So what did she take home? Also a box full of plants and cuttings.

Among it , is this "Cekur Batik". If not mistaken, the scientific name is Kaempferia elegans (Silver spot) . The pattern on the leave is so unique. Just like batik cloth. It's from ginger family. Can be use for cooking meat wor.


Papa also found the plant that he wanted. Jeng! Jeng! he have been hunting for this birdnest fern for quite sometime. Happy to have found that and also made some friends too.

There were a couple there who invited Mamarazzi and few others to his home to see his plant. Alamak.....shy shy la....not only see...he also gave out some of his plants. Mamarazzi got two pots of beautiful adeniums from him. She so happy leh.

I asked her...where's mine...she said I can choose any one of the plants that she brought home as mine. I choose Chamomille. 

Thank you very much to BJ Green Rangers for such a meaningful event. Hopefully there will be more plant exchange session in the future.

By the time, they came to pick me up from camp in the evening, I was "hyper" too. I had so much fun at the camp that I talked about it non-stop....Oh well...maybe got stop la...stop to eat before continue talking. They are going to have Christmas Celebration on 25th. Asked me to bring parents go wor. I wanted to go leh. 


After makan...oi-oi is the best lo... Mamarazzi said me snoring so loud till flies also can go into my mouth leh.
