I read with incredulity that the Perak state assembly Speaker V. Sivakumar convened a state assembly meeting under a rain tree (Samanea saman) in the state secretariat car park. Whatever the outcome of this current debacle, I must say that today's meeting will go down in modern history as the most eco-friendly state assembly meeting ever. Outdoor, under a tree, natural lighting, natural ventilation.

Hmmm, perhaps they should do that once in a while for Parliament sessions too. Conserve energy. And even if it rains it won't make much difference.

OK, I must remember to take a picture with that tree the next time I visit Ipoh.

Perak Boleh!

el'z: It's seriously amusing. Reality is often stranger than fiction.

yennie: I hope they don't poison it or cut it down. I have a creepy feeling that they'll find an excuse to renovate the car park or extend the building. That would be tree-mendous act of tree-son.
