Today, I attended a wedding reception in another town.
Ya... my friend held a wedding party for his daughter.
Such a simple party but so impressive.
As usual we take home a pack of souvenir.
But I got special souvenir from this party.
I took home a pack of souvenir that consisting of so many traditional foods in the paper bag, and the surprising gift was a plant seedling.
I got a seedling of Gaharu (Aquilaria malaccensis).
Gaharu is a tree that produces resinous heartwood calls agarwood,oud or oodh.
The agarwood is the raw material for perfumery industries.
This is a plant that has a high economic value.
The material produced by this plant (agarwood) is so expensive.
Agarwood and its essential oil gained great cultural and religious significance in ancient civilizations around the world.
I have to think hard to find a suitable space for this plant.
Oh ... please... where...
