The show attracted 90 plants entered into 19 classes. The Grand Champion went to Mr. Foong Seong Soh with his entry of Blc (Unknown). Photograh on the left shows Mrs. Foong with the prize winning plant.

Trip to Singapore (WOC)

Singapore will host the 20th World Orchid Conference from 13th to 20th November 2011 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Covention Center.

As an orchid enthusiast, it is an opportunity that must not be missed and Perak Orchid Society has organised a 3 day 2 night trip to coincide with the conference.

The chartered bus can hold 30 persons and accommodations will be either at Fragrance Hotel or Hotel 81, the latter is slightly more expensive. As this is a peak period for hotels, we need to book earlier and therefore we ask all members and friends who are interested to register with us so that final arrangements can be made.

The tentative dates will be 14th night to 16th November 2011.

Apart from trips visiting the WOC at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and convention Center, we will try and visit some of the farms in Singapore and Johor Bahru.

The cost of the return trip and hotel accommodation will be RM425 per person on a twin sharing basis for a group with a minimum of 20 persons. If more than 20 persons register, then the price will be adjusted accordingly. The cost of ticket to the WOC is about SGD20 per person (senior citizens are entitled to a discount) but we will try to negotiate for a group discount.

No meals will be provided but the bus will bring us to some of the larger food courts serving some of Singapore's best hawker food

We are working on the itinerary and will have it posted when its ready.

Yang Berbahagia Dato' Haji Roshidi Bin Haji Hashim, Datuk Bandar Ipoh and family paid a pleasant surprise visit to our show. Datuk Bandar has always showed interest in our society's activities and has helped us in so many ways without which our shows cannot achieve this high standard every month.

Our Dep. President, Leong Tuck Lock and Vice President, Low Kok Keong showed Dato' around the show site and we are sure he was impressed by all the high quality of the orchids on display.
