    Wow!! I am not a paph person but your photos are very inspiring. Hopefully this area will be untouched for years to come.

    Do you stay alone in the forest overnight? or do you have some company? When I was in the Army in Malaysia I stayed overnight in the Taman Negara National Park with a whole lot of other soldiers- and it was still scary! Especially when we heard two Tigers calling to each other! I didn't know much about Orchids then, but the night time wildlife was amazing.
    Great to see those Paphs in their natural environment, we would love to know the day time/night time temperatures and the humidity count too- We see hybridised Paphs like these in Madeira, Portugal, when we go on holiday- they grow so many there that they sell them as cut flowers at Christmas!
    Many thanks for the great pictures again.

    Over the past couple days I have looked at your pictures page by page. One night I was up almost til midnight as the time slipped by unnoticed due to my entire attention being focused on your amazing pictures. I cannot tell you how beautiful I find your country. There just aren't enough words in the dictionary! I feel like I took a trip. The people varied and colorful in their native clothing. The countryside drenched in green and rice paddies tiered and flooded. The islands in the water and forests draped in orchids and ferns. You have such an amazing array of pictures. Thanks again for letting us be armchair tourists. Your days and nights in the forests and small towns are so very appreciated. Thank you for sharing all this with us!

    @Buga..: In the forest I never go alone, that is must...so I stay overnight also with other too. We don't have tiger or big dangerous animal here. I also love to see animal at night like big gecko, snakes etc.
    @Connie: thank you for your encourage replied.

    Today we prepare for 3st year old of our Orchid Club anniversary so we will organize a orchid show tomorrow. I will try to make more photo to show you.
    (One again I'm sorry for not posting more photo of the trip that I just make yesterday, I will do it soon)

    Perhaps those of us who are fascinated by Cxcanh and these beautiful pictures should all get together and propose a certain date when we might all be able to gather in his country and have a great big "Orchidfest" and Orchid hunting Safaris- led by Xcanh, of course- how wonderful would that be?!
