    I am so glad to find an old friend here. To other participants of OTF I am pleased to inform you that we have in Michael one of the foremost grower of orchids in Malaysia and a breeder of note esp of phals and an authority on our local species. I knew his late father, a pioneer in orchid growing and Michael, through our mutual interest in orchids.

    Michael, believe it or not I still have 3 plants from you that I obtained more than 35 years ago, namely Milt Purple Queen, Blc Greenwich 'Hula Girl', and Cstm Tunku Zainab Petra.

    Hoping to see pix your new phal hybrids soon.
    I still have those paintings and love them. Would like to have more.
    Come visit me when you come down to Penang. Only 1 1/2 hours drive!
    I am sure we will surprise you with our establishment.
    I will be travelling - Borneo this month, Miami/Redland in May and Peterborough/U.K. in June. Call 019-4480880

    Hi Michael, I read about you on a phal forum, and see photos of your fantastic phals. I so wish I could go to Redlands- it sounds amazing.

    Hi Michael. Will make an effort to see you next trip to Penang.Don't go to Penang so often now, what with the traffic congestion and the fact that at 72 I have cut down a lot on my travelling. Moreoer my relatives have moved to Ausralia.

    Do you mean your establishment in Sungai Dua or Bukit Jambul?

    Hope your bring back some plants from Borneo.More incentive to visit you. Hehehe.

    About those paintings. I am looking for some myself!
