It is my hope that one day I would be able to marry Traditional Malay Medicine to Modern Medicine for the benefit of my patients.

Herbwalk is not talking about herbal cures or giving out that special herbal drinks we concocted ourselves to show we can. No. It is about imparting knowledge. It is about interacting and exchanging ideas. It is about relaxing and feeling at home with nature and trying to understand the language of the plants. It is about health advises and health understanding.

Herbwalk is a term used to describe a tour whereby the tourist is taken for a walk in an area with a running commentary on the various medicinal plants on display in a garden or seen in the forest.

The herbwalk in Langkawi is the first of its kind in Malaysia. We are proud to say that the very first herbwalk ever in Malaysia and Langkawi was done on the 29th of January 2007 for our very special guest Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia's fourth Prime Minister and the one who made Langkawi  what it is today.

Today we are in the process of reorganizing our walk to make it available again to the tourists with special interests in healthy and drug free living. We are designing our walk to include a session of instruction and Q & A along side the herbwalk.

Until we finalize these new programmes, we are still happy to entertain people who stumble by our place to learn about our work.  Our doors are open for visitors between 09:00 to 11:00 everyday provided we are available at home. There are times when we have to go to market for our food supplies, attend meetings in Kuala Lumpur, visit our mother in Kuala Kedah (usually Fridays and Saturdays). Best is to check with us on our availability before coming.
