Floating Tree

There is one Chinese proverb, 万丈高楼从地起. Direct translation means, every high rise building starts from the ground. In other words, everything must have foundation to begin with before moving high to ensure stability.

This applies to how you survive in this human world. If you are just a talk cock guy without real qualifications, you wouldn't sustain long especially in the corporate world. Same goes to flora world as well, a tree without strong root and trunk would not survive during storms and realistically, how could a tree grow without a trunk from the ground? In particular, a palm tree?

A typical palm tree should look like this...


Look at what I found out from the recent Ipoh trip...


The palm tree is hanging in the air without trunk!

Amazing right? Since it is in Perak, may be it's due to current political uncertainty and instability in the state? Hmmm...

You can go to this hotel to find out the truth...


Do drop me a message once the truth is found ;)
