Let me introduce us! I’m Jacq, (a shortened version of my actual name Jacqueline) and am also the other half (better half? ;-) ) of John, my beloved spouse cum best friend! We’re retirees in our golden years, residing in Kuala Lumpur, West Malaysia. I’ll be the one sharing all the posts here but he’ll be my pillar and ‘sleeping partner’ so to speak. Most of my writings will be focused on our very own tropical garden, the place that provides us with our daily dose of joy, peace, wonder and amazement!
We’ll try to pack this blog with a plant database or encyclopedia, with our garden plants as starters! We are neither botanists nor entomologists, just passionate gardeners and nature lovers. Though we’re aware that this is a mammoth task, we’re committed and will persevere as it will be a labour of love as well.
For ease of exploring and manoeuvring this website, we have categorized our passion and interests in the following manner:
- A-Z Tropical Plants Database – which includes a plant photo gallery with links to the plants’ profile, etc., and plants index by botanical names and families.
- Garden Reference and Resource Centre to store all our favorite gardening links.
- Tropical Wildlife Photo Gallery to showcase nature images of the animal kingdom and linking to related articles.
- Photoshop Tutorial Thumbnails, shown collectively and linking to their respective tutorial.
- WordPress Tips – finding my way around wordpress, documenting/sharing whatever I’ve learnt thus far the hard way, with the desire to help others who are groping just like me.
Almost all photos contained in this site were taken by us, unless otherwise stated. Plants and nature identification, plus some details were sourced and compiled from the internet and elsewhere. Thus, we will not be liable for any inaccuracy or damage resulting from your visit here, though we’d appreciate to be informed should you notice any incorrect entry or broken links.
The website and its contents (including text, images and photographs) are freely provided for your personal information, enjoyment and educational purposes.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit.
Thank you very much and do visit again. :)
