'Nami Island' Kelantan

'Nami Island' Kelantan

The rows of Casuarina equisetifolia trees beautifully lined are enough to spur excitement in anyone as soon as they reach Senok Beach, often nicknamed ¡°Nami Island of Malaysia¡¯, which is almost comparable to the Nami Island in Korea :) Well-known among local and foreign tourists, the beauty of the casuarina equisetifolia trees alone is enough to attract visitors who want to take selfies, have a picnic with family, chill with friends and celebrate birthdays. Even newlyweds use it as background for their wedding photography sessions. Kelantan Tourism Information Centre principal assistant secretary (Tourism and Culture) Nik Mahmud Nik Jaffar said with about 4,344 of casuarina equsetifolia and eucalyptus trees were planted along the coast since 2009 and 400 new seeds added in December last year, the beach promised much potential. ¡°Many locals refer to the beach as the Malaysian version of the ¡®Nami Island¡¯ in Korea. What was once a fishermen¡¯s village has now become a tourist attraction following this new nickname,¡± he told Bernama in Bachok, Kelantan, on Sunday. Nik Mahmud said the transformation of natural beauty there has provided a new source of livelihood because with the arrival of tourists, the locals get to trade, including food and products of small and medium enterprises. ¡°The casuarina equisetifolia trees were originally planted by the Kelantan Forestry Department under the Coastal Area Conservation Programme to prevent coastal erosion and flooding. ¡°As these casuarina equisetifolia and eucalyptus trees grow taller and mature, they provide a stunning landscape in Pantai Senok. Other specialities such as food and beverages, including ¡®Maggi Telur Sotong¡¯, ¡®Maggi Ketam¡¯ and ¡®Mee Celup¡¯ (similar to Thai soup noodle) add to the attraction,¡± he said. ¡°At Nami Island, the facilities provided are complete and organized; there are pedestrian walkways, signboards with lots of information, halal restaurants, suraus, libraries and cafeterias. Visitors are also eager to check out the smallest lighthouse located on the edge of Senok Beach on the rock embankment. There are also remains of the Japanese landing site bordering Kuala Pak Amat, Sabak, which used to be a fishing spot. read more

"Forest Floors" change Kids' Immune Systems

"Forest Floors" change Kids' Immune Systems

Study on Daycares in Finland who build ''Forest Floors'' for children show within 30 days of playing in the forest soil and leaf litter, Finnish preschoolers had increased T-cell counts and far more diverse gut bacteria, in another word, kids' Immune Systems have improved. In a fascinating experiment, Finnish researchers recreated the environment of a forest floor on the playgrounds of four urban daycare centers. They covered the play-yards with forest soil, moss, meadow grasses, dwarf heather, blueberries and crowberries and installed planter boxes for annual garden crops. Daycare workers instructed the preschool-aged kids to play in the greenery and soil for an hour and 1/2 a day for a month. Their gut and skin microbes were analyzed before and after the experiment and compared with those of children from normal urban daycare centers with standard sterile play-yards.. After just 28 days, the diversity of their intestinal and skin bacteria increased dramatically, as did their T-cell counts and other important immune markers in their blood. ¡°The results of this study support the biodiversity hypothesis and the concept that low biodiversity in the modern living environment may lead to an un-educated immune system and consequently increase the prevalence of immune-mediated diseases.¡± One of the microbes acquired from the forest floor was gammaproteobacteria, which appeared to boost the skin¡¯s immune defense, as well as increase helpful immune secretions in the blood and reduce the content of interleukin-17A, which is connected to immune-transmitted diseases. ¡°This supports the assumption that contact with nature prevents disorders in the immune system, such as autoimmune diseases and allergies.¡± say research scientist Aki Sinkkonen, who led the study. read more

'Avatar' Secret Garden (Penang)

'Avatar' Secret Garden (Penang)

IF YOU WANNA TO traverse the dreamscape setting featured in the 2009 film Avatar, filled with illuminated trees, plants, and magical creatures, then Penang¡¯s 'Avatar' Secret Garden is the place for you. During the day, this section of rainforest along Tanjung Tokong¡¯s quiet side streets, meters away from the rocky coastline, appears ordinary. By night, this section of rainforest transforms int0 a sea of fiber optics, neon, and fairy lights glowing in various hues of pink, purple, green, and blue. The free-of-charge venue contains a series of steps and boardwalks that take visitors on a journey through the mystical garden. The paths are surrounded by illuminated foliage and stone statues representing various Buddhist themes.  Near the entrance is a towering tree draped with lights, bearing a very close resemblance to Pandora¡¯s sacred spirit tree, Eywa. Other illuminated plants include low lying shrubs, ferns, and even a field of LED poppies specifically colored to spell out messages.  Remember to visit a little before sunset allows for the opportunity to explore the beach area, where more stone statues and animal-shaped-shrubbery lead to a rocky groin. Before you go. The garden lights turn on just after sunset, usually around 7:30 p.m. There is a small paid car park near the entrance better suited to scooters due to the tight spaces and narrow streets read more
