Also held in conjunction with Ipoh City Day 25th Silver Jubilee anniversary, this 6-day orchid competition and promotion at Dataran MBI in Ipoh, attracted entries among serious orchid enthusiasts.
Organised by Ipoh Orchid Society (Persatuan Orkid Ipoh) and Ipoh City Council, with the aim of creating more orchid hobbyists, I think the society needs to generate better awareness amongst the public by at least updating their abandoned official website.
Anyway, although I can’t tell a good orchid from a bad one, I believe the competition was stiff, judging from the winning entries.
Let me share with you some photos of orchids that I took, not only champion orchids but also those that were exhibited and put up for sale.
Oh yes, I loved the orchid souvenirs. At least, they don’t need taking care of!
