Bamboo is cool and inviting!

This is the side entrance to Alamanda Shopping Centre in Putrajaya. The designer was very confident playing with nature and placed rows of bamboo on both sides. I thought they are lovely, cool and very inviting!!

side entrance.
for padestrians, look at how bamboos slender stems meet at the top
and forming almost a beautiful arch



Putrajaya is a new administrative capital of Malaysia. The town is fairly modern, and they had put real thought on how this place should blend; roads, buildings, parks, shopping complex, lakes, green lungs etc... I am lucky to be here, living, working and gardening.....

  1. So lovely and refreshing -- almost spiritual.

    And thanks for your visit to my blog, Bangchik (now you see my own peanut post).

  2. Looks like the black bamboo-- really striking stalks. We have such issues of it being invasive -- all over the battlefield at Yorktown now.

    Bamboo is always nice, lovely and refreshing. Japanese are good at giving bamboo, a spiritual tag. This bamboo has not come up to the point of being invasive... There are other wild bamboo growing wildly on hill slopes. To a certain point, bamboo helps by holding hillslopes and riverbanks together, reducing erosions.

    Have a great day!

  4. This is beautiful! We too have issues of it being invasive. Maybe pots would work?

  5. >Beegirl..,
    Pots would work definitely, in containing the growth and spread.... We do have little "batik" bamboo in pots. But that bamboo in the pictures are definitely a lot bigger.

    Cheers!

  6. The walkway is beautiful with the bamboo trees lining its side! I have only been to Alamanda once many years ago. Next time when I visit Putrajaya, probably should pop by.

    Thanks for the comment on my posting. I am impatiently waiting for Nov ~ when I can use the compost that I am making.

    I wish Bang Chik & Kak Dah a lovely weekend with the family. :o)

    Bamboo arch is really beautiful. To JC, even though you had been to Alamanda, that was years ago, the bamboo was alot smaller and for all we know, you didnt even notice because this is side entrance meant for pedestrians... JC, you came by car right?

    Thanks JC, stephanie and dangergarden.
    Cheers!

    We are so used to see bamboo, then it becomes so easy to take these beautiful bamboo for granted... as some in your place, will take snow for granted, but some of us here will sigh and jump on seeing snow for the first time..!!

    Considering Malaysia as the destination for next vacation?

  11. I love bamboo. I've just bought one for my garden, but I'm going to grow it in a container.

  13. I love leafy tunnels like this. Where I grew up on Long Island, in Floral Park, the town planted sycamore trees along the streets. The mature trees gave the same effect. So beautiful!

  14. The bamboo creates an archway reminding me of a cathedral. So delicate while being so strong... love the texture of the leaves and the beauty of the trunks. Lovely! Must be inspiring to walk through daily.

  15. The plants are so tall and dense, but they feel very light, not heavy...

  16. WOW! That is gorgeous! The contrast between the dark stems and the light green leaves is stunning!

    There is this place called Beruas, not far away from my home town. The place is full of rubber trees. There is a stretch of road somewhere there, where trees are of the same height and the rows on the left meet at the top with rows on the right. The tunnel as one drives along is so cool and serene...

    The only snag is the road is always wet, hence easily weaken, disintegrate, creating little potholes....

    It is a wonder, how slenderness creates lightness feeling. Yes the contrast between stem and leaves is so obvious and produce a stunning view.... Thanks tatyana and wormandflower for "cute" and "acute" observation.

    Cheers!
