Tan Sri Sam - Mr President@the artist

This picture was taken at the Laman Seni of Floria 2009 on Sunday 2 August 2009. Some of you all may not know that Tan Sri Samsudin Osman, our former KSN is an artist - particularly in water colour painting.


I wrote an article in the Eh! magazine just recently and it was published in the May 2009 issue. And I've been sooo lucky to be selected to receive gifts from Eh!. I received this pair of RISIS earring together with a brooch as well as a pendant and necklace. According to Kak Asiah (Eh! Editor), they worth RM880!!! : )

* Below write up was taken from

The year 1976 saw the birth of what we now know as RISIS, when SISIR (the former Singapore Institute of Standards and Industrial Research, presently known as SPRING – Standards, Productivity and Innovation for Growth) developed and perfected a process that immortalised the natural beauty of Singapore’s orchids in precious 24K gold. It was a moment that forged a nation’s pride in a brilliant blend of technology, art and nature and created a classic that would be cherished as Singapore’s gift to the world.
With the mastery of their patented processes; their commitment to research, development and aesthetic values, RISIS has won numerous awards (Certificate of Award for Good Manufacturing Practice by SISIR and Singapore Design Award) and accolades (first winner of the Best Tourism Souvenir award presented by the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board) that hold testament to RISIS core values: creativity and quality.

Pesta Bunga dan Taman Floria 2009 - Celebration of Colours..

Floria 2009 - Hello... Yeah.. It should not be an excuse for me, for not writing. Yes, I was involved with Floria since my Ministry is the host ministry for this International event. I'll put up more pictures - later.
This one was taken in the Floral Pavilion. Yap! The big white tent, if you've been there. My comments - Hmm.. not bad. Although I was expecting something better. But then again, with the economic crisis and the H1N1 outbreak.. Not bad, after all..

I personally love this one. This is MARDI's corporate garden. I wish I could have this garden at my house in the future... : )..
