The surface of the forest was covered with millions of fallen leaves. I chance upon this single green leaf lying on a bed of dry and wilted leaves.

This leaf look like a gigantic fan. Impressive interconnected structure is visible on the leaf.

It's been a long time since I last captured pictures for my nature gallery. This morning, I decided to revisit Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) to rediscover the beauty of nature in a reserve forest. FRIM is nothing to shout about - a far cry from Penang's Botanic Garden.

I HATE the presence of motor vehicles in the forest. These vehicles owner paid RM5 to drive in and out of the forest. The presence of vehicles in the forest made it so artificial, FAKE and no longer a great place to enjoy nature. I don't understand why city dwellers need to drive their cars into the forest and park it in the forest and then jog a few miles.

Earlier on, I took my breakfast and drove my car to the FRIM's outer parking bay. From there, I spent two and a half hours exploring FRIM. I walk, walk and walk for more than 2 hours. I am really surprised that I am not tired at all!

Huge trees are visible on both side of the road. Unlike Penang Botanic Garden, FRIM is a 'busy' forest - cars, bikes, cyclists, joggers and also nature enthusiats like me.

I'll continue with my ranting about FRIM's condition on Part 2 and Part 3.
