DATE : 23 May – 1 June 2014

The 2nd Orchid and Bonsai Show 2014 was held recently at the Perdana Botanical Garden, Kuala Lumpur from May 21 to June 2, 2014. The first show was previously held in the same venue in 2012. The show was a joint effort by The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur or DBKL) and the Bonsai N Stone Academy.

There were one hundred and seventy six (176) bonsai entries for this year’s show. Species represented included the Wrightia Religiosa (水梅, a very popular local bonsai species), Premna Obtusifolia (寿娘子), Diospyros Ebenum (象牙树), Juniperus Chinensis (真柏), Ficus Microcarpa (榕树), Beackea Frutescens (香松) and others. The bonsai categories were divided into Wrightia Religiosa (水梅), Island (海岛树), Juniperus Chinensis/Ficus (真柏/榕树), Beackea Frutescens (香松), and Assorted (其他杂木) for all sizes of bonsai (from small to Big). Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes were awarded for each of these categories. The Grand prizes were the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, the BCI Excelent Award and the Queen of Flowers.

The Deputy Prime Minister, Y.B. Tan Sri Hj. Muhyiddin Hj. Mohd Yassin officiated the opening of the Orchid and Bonsai Show 2014 in the evening of May 23, 2014, which was attended by about 1,000 guests. Y.B. Tan Sri Hj. Muhyiddin presented the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur prize of RM1,000 and trophy to Mr. Ng Tien Sun (黄丁山先生) for his Ficus Microcarpa,the BCI prize of RM500 and trophy to Mr. Low Ah Seng (刘啟胜先生) for his Wrightia Religiosa,and the Queen of Flowers prize of RM300 and trophy to Mr. Lim Kian Meng (林健民先生) for his Wrightia Religiosa。After the prize giving ceremony and candle light dinner, Y.B. Tan Sri Hj. Muhyiddin accompanied by Mr. I S Ng((黄荣鑽先生) together with other guests spent some time in viewing the bonsai.

There was no entry fee for bonsai this time. According to Mr. I S Ng (黄荣鑽先生), President of the Bonsai N Stone Academy and a Director of BCI, the purpose of a no entry fee was to encourage more bonsai hobbyists to participate in this bonsai show. He also shared the common objective of the Kuala Lumpur City Hall to promote bonsai in Malaysia and to promote the Perdana Botanical Garden by hosting various activities so as to attract more local and foreign visitors. The Perdana Botanical Garden was formerly known as Lake Garden, and it was built in 1888 by the late A.R. Venning (http://www.klbotanicalgarden.gov.my/guide-amenities.php). Both the prizes and venues were sponsored by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

During the period of the bonsai show, it was estimated that over 5,00 visitors visited the bonsai exhibition. Mr. Bohori Che Moktar bonsai master gave bonsai demonstrations and talks about the Beackea Frutescens to the public in a few occasions. Beackea Frutescens is popular bonsai species in Kelantan and Terengganu (Northeast of West Malaysia).

He also has a vision to work with the Kuala Lumpur City Hall to develop a Bonsai Park in the future.
