Guests of 2022 - Big Thank You

All I can say is that I had a fantastic 2022 for many reasons to be thankful for :

My fellow guests who have made their way back here and chosen Langkawi as their destination after a two-year hiatus. And my new guests who had somehow connected and picked me as their guide. Friends and acquaintances who had connected me with my guests. The top most to be thankful for would be our cooperative components which are our wildlife, natural habitats and weather.
I had a full schedule towards the end of 2022 and spilled over to January 2023 hence the delay of this post. For 2022 thank you post has a twist in it and definitely different from my previous ones.
With gratitude, every day in every way we will be better and better.

Strangling Figs, Hornbills and Blessings

The common types of strangling fig trees are those with red or yellow figs. When some of these trees produce figs, they can be seen along the road. During the fruiting time, the strangling fig tree becomes a stage for the bird enthusiasts.

In December 2022, there were three different productive strangling fig trees inviting the hornbills for free feasts of delicious vitamins and protein packed meals. One of them lasted till early January 2023.
My lucky guests who managed to photograph the hornbills feasting on one of these trees were Swales Family, Meyer Family, Jia Hui family, Dennis family, Ardish, Nasir and Nigel/Lucas Oh, Emily family.

Both are auspicious colours for the Chinese New Year. I like to wish everyone here a good year ahead with good health, happiness and prosperity.
