Rimbun Dahan, Kuang 13 March 2011
It's a short 15 minutes drive to Kuang from Sg Buloh.
Direction from Sg Buloh to Rimbun Dahan- After the police station ( on your left), take the right turn at a traffic light. Shortly after that, you will see Rimbun Dahan on your right.
The tour starts right here at the main gate @9am. You can park your vehicle by the road side, after the first right turn. This is also where the tour ends.
The nature tour is free and conducted by the owner, Angela Hijjas. Rimbun Dahan is open to the public only during art exhibitions and on special occasions. During art exhibitions, the Rimbun Dahan gallery and gardens are open on weekends from 10am to 6am and on weekdays by appointment only.
Do wear long pants and equipped with mosquito repellant. Some part of the grassy area is not trimmed and can be wet after rain.
Rough sandy creepy leaves called 'Mempelas' which use to polish and shine metal.

En found a huge linear shape leaf.
Admiring the beauty of the trees at the huge garden.
This fig tree (above) originate from Myanmar. And we were told that the tree is sterile as it lacks the agent, a fig wasp, to pollinate the flowers in the fig "fruit". Is interesting to note that each species of fig wasp will only pollinate a respective fig tree species.
Above was when a fig fruit was open exposing the flowers inside.
This part of the trunk was wrapped with soil, where roots grew out of it. It is meant for tree grafting.
Angela told us to help ourselves with the mulberries from her garden!
