    Beautiful! The texture of the flowers is so firm that it almost looks like plastic.

    Zain, you certainly have quite a collection of Phillippine spieces, this one is outstanding. I love the texture and the beautiful lip. I hope one day to raid my Piggy Bank and take a trip to see you and your Orchids.
    Happy Holidays and all the best for 2013.

    Small flowers - love the form and the creamy yellow color. Looks like one that should be nicely fragrant.

    This Vanda is new to me also. Great color and love that and the waxy appearance. It smells like bananas and the color is quite similar I think to the fruit inside the peel. Wish I had one of these. AL
