Floria 2013

I never miss the annual Floria event ever since I moved here in 2010 and this year theme is "Orchid-Tropical Treasure".

This year, it features the Malaysia's longest landscaped vertical wall which is 300m long and the wall is covered by a wide variety of tropical plants, foliage, herbs, creepers and orchids.

It also features some Chinese lantern which reminds me of the coming moon cake festival. Should be a sight to behold at night.

The size of the event is pretty much the same as the previous year. It is still fun to visit with the variety of floral and gardens design this year.

Some of the international participants also manage to awe the visitor with their creativity. Each country somehow incorporates their culture and identity into each of the garden design and showcase it at this event.

I kind of intrigue with this garden which is based on the red riding hood folk tale. It might be a little spooky for some visitors or children.

The Sungai Lembing Museum also did a good job to give an insight what to expect in their underground tin museum. I will definitely will make an effort to visit the museum in the future.

In a nutshell, it is a colourful event and I am impressed that they are still able to keep the plants fresh and alive after a week of hot and hazy weather.

"Whoever believes in Jesus will have everlasting life." Kinda. Theoretically. What they will experience is the perpetual life cycle of birth-aging-death on Earth-like planets. It ensures a second chance for those who fell for the god's deception and are too stupid to pull out of it in a timely manner, for only the true believers (Flanders) will survive come transplant/colonization.
I believe these people are the original residents of a planet (Earth=Africans). Other regions are populated with groups whom are transplaned as the gods deem fit (Native Americans=next Asians, Ashkenaz Jews=next Europeans).
Believing this deviate pimp Jew is god comes at a price, reflected in blacks strengths/weaknesses.
Ironically, due to the god's positioning the Antients ensured these people would not receive two second chances:::Christianity is an Italian religion, responsible for black misery ranging from slavery to the crack epidemic and Italian-style gang membership.
Incidentally, although I ridicule the idea Jesus is god I am slated for this group on the next planet Earth for my unwillingness to bow to absolute power and, like the black man, will be reincarnated less capable compared to my fellow man. And that's why the gods created this reputation among the black man. As far as why Jewish men are like faggotty...
