When you are in Putrajaya, don’t forget to tour around the beautiful sceneries of the surrounding.
There are quite a number of bridges in Putrajaya..The first bridge that I reached is the Seri Saujana bridge which is the link between the Core Island (Precinct 4) and Precinct 7. The Seri Saujana Bridge is strategically located at the main entrance where I came from, the KL-KLIA highway.
The Seri Saujana Bridge and the Seri Wawasan Bridge are two bridges I like most as their designs are unique and beautiful. Drop by and don’t forget to take some photos of these bridges and its surrounding well-landscaped gardens fringed with trees, shrubs and bright colourful blooming flowers.
The Seri Saujana Bridge is the main bridge in Putrajaya, the Malaysian federal administrative capital. From a distant you can see these two bridges and getting there is easy as all the roads in Putrajaya are made for one-way traffic.
These are some photos I shot on the Seri Saujana Bridge and its nearby surrounding … with the pictureque lake and river as the backdrop, the bridge with is unique design is simply outstanding.
Many wedding photographers like to reccomend their clients to have their wedding photo shoot at Putrajaya too.
Traditionally the Qing Ming falls on the first week of April and Chinese will go back to attend this Tomb Sweeping Day every year.
The Chinese elderly parents will want the qing ming or tomb sweeping Day to continue..to give an opportunity for the younger generations to meet and learn to respect the ancestors of this traditional culture.
Three months ago, the permission to remodify the tombs of my ancestors was granted after consultation with a medium. An auspicious day was chosen and all family members are required to attend the ceremony.
It was for a good reason that when family members come back to pay their respects during the qing ming festival, the tombs being restored would prove that the dead are not forgotten by their filial descendants.
Under the medium’s guidance the ceremony started with the digging of the graves to collect the ancestors bones with much care every tiny piece of bones and the skull of the dead were unearthed and placed into an urn arranged according to position and reburied into the same graves.
Another date was set for all members of the family to attend to witness the new tombs with the medium performing a ceremonial ritual..
Now the qing ming festival is near and all our family members have decided to return to our home near Ipoh on this coming Sunday and we will gather again. Our deceased grandmother’s soul would be pleased to have the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren gathered at the new tombs -rebuild after almost 50 years.

Canna or Canna lily are one of the most popular garden plants beside orchid and hibiscus. These tropical flowers can be seen during my old days where I was bought up in the village near Ipoh. Many residents like to grow these plants because of it’s beauty and color.
Although Canna or Canna Lily are of the tropics, most cultivars have been developed in temperate climates and are easy to grow in most countries of the world as long as they can enjoy about 6 hours average sunlight during the summer.
The photos were taken at the Tanah Rata’s park, Cameron Highland recently.The species Canna or Canna Lily has two color, red and yellow. I am not sure if there are any more color of these beautiful species.
Sometimes, they are also grown as potted plants. Photo taken with Canon 70-200mm F2.8 zoom lense.
