We had one mission on Friday morning, that was to search for the largest flower of all - Rafflesia.
I was eager and reached SFC office at 8.03am, where our briefing will only begin at 9am.
After briefing, we carpooled to our destination. We had a quick stop at Kota Padawan for breakfast; I had this...
|Kampua, nice, huge portion, I can't even finish this plate.|
At 10.30am we start moving, reach kpg Temurang at 11am.
We were advised by our team leader (Mr. Maurice) to wear this special shoes - the Adidas Payak. Nice comfy shoes cost only RM8.50 :)
The trekking along the kebun trail was kind of easy, took us about 15 minutes to reach the Rafflesia area. However on that day we only managed to catch the bud of Rafflesia, not 1 but 5 buds in one small area. That considered very good since a Rafflesia takes 9 months of 'pregancy' period and will bloom for 5 days only.
