Posted by Tuan Rumah | 12:09 AM | | 0 comments »

Malaysia Floral Fest is back with the biggest and most colorful display of flora in Malaysia. For a whole week in January, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur will be transformed into venues brimming with bright, colorful and fragrant blooms.
Inspired by past successes at the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade in USA, Malaysia's very own floral parade will grace the launch of Malaysia Flora Fest 2007.
Originally introduced in 1991, Malaysia's Floral Parade is the only such parade ever organized in Southeast Asia. And this year the parade will be more dazzling than ever. Participants from various organizations and state governments will try to outshine one another with their own floral creations.
So, don't be a wallflower, come express your love for Mother Nature with your best floral display. Whether you are a participant or a spectator, you will not want to miss the fun as we celebrate the beauty and splendour of Malaysian blossoms.
