Another interesting day here in Sarawak starting t MRSM School where we worked to help prepare the girls o make their display at the Asia Pacific Orchid Congress next week in Kuching.
First they finished the TZ test with great results for viable seeds (above) and then learning green pod seed sowing with Jess. (below)
This jar contains the first Sarawak orchid seed (Dendrobium anosmum) sown by a Sarawak Student in a Sarawak Laboratory.
At the end of the afternoon the group shared their work with all the year 8s at an assembly that finished with a giant group photo.
We then raced over to the Cultural Village where we learnt about the many tribes of Sarawak and enjoyed a great show of dance and music from the diverse Sarawak cultures.
We also saw our first primates up close. A Long-tailed Macaques
