He began showing interests in medicinal plants since 1995 but never got very seriously involved in it until after his marriage to Dayang in 2000. The first medicinal plant he was introduced to was called Hempedu Bumi or Andrographis paniculata, Nees. Surprisingly this is the very plant that did wonders to his wife. It treated and continues to treat her of most of her common complaints from influenza to bodyaches and headaches.

Since then the collection had grown and never stopped growing from one to more than 500 now. At the peak of his collection he had some 700 plants of different species. That initial collection was given to Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia as the starter collection for their Herb Garden in their campus in Bangi. The current collection comprise of those missed by UKM, when they came and took 6 3-ton lorry loads of our plants, and new collections. The collection includes plants considered as weeds by most to the more exotic plants from the fringes of the rainforests of Malaysia.

The  pages  that follows are just an overview of the collections and what you can see when you visit him for his scheduled walks.

This collection of plants has been acknowledged by various authorities as being amongst the more exhaustive and finest in the country. Those who have seen them are amazed by the collection as some of the plants are considered rare today in this part of the world. Thus, it is never an exhausting effort on one humble individual to ensure that these medicinal plant herittage of Malaysians live on for the furute generation.
