It is from this tree that my association with Arthur George Alphonso was first nurtured and provided me with many learning experiences on landscaping matters based on his experiences in the greening of Singapore. Just a couple of years ago I planted one Poui tree in my garden in Kuching. I consider the Poui tree as an essential tree for the Kambatik garden or Malaysian garden. Check out more of my gardening experiences on this tree in Kuching here.
Happy Malaysia Day, Sarawak!
(Note: On the 16th of September, Sarawak will celebrate its independence being a party to the formation of Malaysia. As part of remembering history I'll create some posts on what it means to be a Malaysian as I have experienced it. Check out the rest of the postings by following this link here.)
