No wonder you can grow all those delightful cymbidiums and paphios.How I envy you! Though I have an apartment in the Cameron Highlands ( another of the colonial hill stations), it doesn't have any land to grow things. I can't afford landed property there as a single story house on a 5000 sq foot plot would cost me MRgt 1.2 million (approx US$400,000).
    Yew Sung, Shillong is now a capital of Meghalaya state. Our temp here is very cold in winter, yesterday minimum was 2c so a great place for cool growing orchids. And don't envy me,in fact i envy you cos you can grow phals and dends without any hassle, i have to take them in every evening during these winter months, and it is exhausting, my shade house is not warm enough and i can't afford to keep a heater inside hahaha... but
    anyway they are worth every trouble cos they are simply beautiful...

    I am in love. I actually commissioned the commitee where I live to build one but a no-go. So I guess this picture stirs up a love-hate feeling. I really want one.

    I have been known to be stubborn (hee, hee). A passion is a passion after all.
