Autumn in Kota Kinabalu

So, everybody is talking about this rare autumn season in Kota Kinabalu. I’d rather say it is spring.

There are all over facebook, friendster etc. These trees seem to be offering what they have got to offer and showing to the people why they deserve to be in the city's landscape. They don't come quite that often and in fact everybody seem to agree that these wonderful trees have never looked like the way they do now anytime ever before.
Some locals would rather liken them with the famed Sakura in Japan.
But then, while those flowery trees are drawing in an added beauty to the city landscape, I feel so sorry for those DBKK people who have to clear the abundant fallen petals every day.
Ohh well, you guys do your job and let us enjoy them while they are still there, OK?

if only they last for like a month, can ask DBKK to plant more of those and have some kind of KK autumn fest here. hehe.

oh well, better this than none at all la kan.

yaaa Carol. They really are beautiful. but then we don't know when do they get 'flowery' like that. I think it has to come with a specific combination of sunlight and rain intensities. hehe.

Hi Noy. Thanks for dropping by. Yeah, they are beautiful. They are all over KK but I gotta ask the landscaping ppl about what it is called. May be we just call em 'KK Sakura'? hehe.

That's right Jipp. I remember the last time they bloomed nicely like that was in 2007 or 08 along Jalan Nosoob- Penampang Baru. Last year, it did bloom but not as noticeable as this time around.

Liz, not sure if they can even last up to a month. Hahaha not botak la...the leaves masi ada, the flowers saja habis gugur.

JIPP said...

actually mo gugur suda skrg.. I had almost missed it.. :-)
