While I was jogging, I noticed a huge tree with lots of small brownish growth on the leaves. I discovered these growth are actually a type of disease that will eventually eat away the leaf - causing it to die prematurely.

  11. Mr. Chee,

    Greetings to Mr. Chee!! Glad to have an official from FRIM visiting my photo blog and travelogue!!. You must be Mr. Chee Beng Jin :)

    I am/will and always in LOVE with N.A.T.U.R.E. I'll try my best to educate young people about the importance to preserve and take good care of our lush greeneries.

    Taking some time to visit our treasured natural forest is simply amazing and a damn good way to free oneself from the hectic and stressful life in the city.

    Besh wishes and cheers!
