Introduction to Phalaenopsis Orchid
Phalaenopsis originate from the jungles of Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines. Their roots are quite thick and often they climb out of the pots, and the green point at the ends signifies that the root is actively grow-ing. Unlike most of the orchid, mature plants usually carry only four to five pair of leaves. The flowers of some species are large and often resemble the shape of moths which is why the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.
History and Foreword
Waltex Biotec Sdn Bhd was formed in February 27, 2006 by its’ founder, Steven S.H. Cheong, after six (6) successful years of researching, cultivating and propagating Phalaenopsis. A hobbyist, who first dipped his fingers in planting Dendrobiums, Vandas and Phalaenopsis back in 1970s, Steven started his collection of moth orchids in his own backyard few years ago. His passion for the beautiful but highly elusive Phalaenopsis led to a thorough and extensive research of growing this prized orchid in the most challenging of environments. Steven traveled, on many occasions, to several countries including USA, Canada, Hawaii, Holland, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia and visited numerous orchid exhibitors and professional growers to gain a deeper understanding of this plant.
After seeing the huge potential of developing the hobby into business, six acres of agricultural land was acquired in Ulu Yam in 2006, a suburb just 40 minutes away from the heart of Kuala Lumpur and which is aptly named “World of Phalaenopsis”. Years of knowledge and experience were shared to this farm to successfully grow the Phalaenopsis on a larger scale.
With the opening of the 2nd farm located in Gohtong Jaya, Genting Highlands with a total growing area of 1.6 acres in January 2009, Waltex Biotec Sdn. Bhd. has become the largest phalaenopsis grower in Malaysia. Waltex Biotec Sdn. Bhd. aims to revolutionize the agriculture industry in Malaysia with both farms being opened to the public and tour groups where visitors are able to view and purchase the flowers.
To increase the audience awareness, the company has been aggressively marketing and advertising on the appropriate medias and attending exhibitions nationwide (click here for the latest exhibition venue). In addition, Waltex Biotec Sdn. Bhd. is part of the following associations:
Ipoh Orchid Society
Selangor & Kuala Lumpur Orchid Society
Orchid Society of South East Asia (Singapore)
American Horticultural Society
America Orchid Society
If you are the type of person who loves action movies and want to experience the thrill of shooting someone, then you will see that playing paintball is the right kind of hobby for you. It is a fun sport that is also fast-paced as well as thrilling that everyone will love playing. It will give you lots of action and also that adrenaline rush that you always want to experience.
The great thing about paintball is that it can be played by anyone. Whether you are a girl or a boy, you will be able to play this action game. In fact, even grandma and grandpa can join in the fun of this great sport.
So, how do you actually play the game?
Basically, paintball is done in open fields. However, it can also be played inside large arenas and even inside buildings with two teams competing. Each person will have an air gun or a paintball gun or paintball marker.
Each team will have different colored arm bands or different uniforms in order to distinguish themselves from friend or foe. For capture the flag, the two teams will search out the flag of the opponent and the first one to seize the flag and bring it back and put it right next to their own flag at a certain amount of time wins.
Also, the entire team members shouldn’t be eliminated on the process. This means that there should be at least one of the team members who should stay “alive”. The term eliminated is where a paintball hits a player.
The basic paintball equipments are paintballs, which are spherical containers that are as large as marbles. Each of the balls contains a water based paint and a semi hard rubber shell that breaks easily after hitting an object. This is generally the ammunition for the paintball gun.
One other basic equipment is the paintball gun that is used to launch the paintball. It is generally powered by compressed air which launches the paintball. The body of the paintball gun is made of aluminum alloy that has a container that is used to hold the paintballs.
In paintball, you also need to have protection for your eyes as well as for your body. You need to remember that the paintball is propelled at high speeds and when it hits, it will hit hard. It can even hurt or sting a bit if it hits your bare skin. The eye protection equipment uses acrylic plastic lens and a rubber strap. For protecting the face, you will need a mask. This covers the front of your face as well as your ears.
Belt packs are also considered to be essential as it will be able to let you hold additional accessories minus the hassle. The sight is also considered by many as important as it will help you aim more accurately.
In paintball, there are certain rules that you need to follow. The first is that you should always keep your protective gears on at all times during the game. Taking off the goggles or the mask are a big no-no in the game. Knowing the limitations of the gun is also essential in playing the game. Usually, shooting at a point blank range is a no-no. If you do catch your opponent at this range, you just have to point the gun at them and tap them on the shoulder or tell them that you marked them.
You also need to remember that this is an honesty game. If you get hit, exit the game or just play dead. Even if the shooter didn’t know you got hit because of the distance, you still need to be honest about it. Sometimes, you won’t know if you got hit or not due to the chaos of the firefight. If this happens, don’t just quit yet and let the referee determine if you got hit or not.
The last rule of the game is to enjoy it and have fun playing it. These are the basics of paintball. Remember these tips and you can be sure that you will have a lot of fun playing the game with your family or friends.
