Blooming Flowers in Miri (2010)

Since past few days, last 2 weeks perhaps, I've noticed there were flowers blooming everywhere along the road in Miri, especially trees! Plants are very common, but not the trees! Each time the flowers caught my attention, I will drive as slow as I could, just to enjoy the feeling of driving in a country side, peace and harmony? hehe

I was wondering, are there Spring and Autumn in Miri, Sarawak? Or maybe because of tropical rain forest in Borneo? Ah, guess I've forgotten my knowledge about geography, including the simple one. Just look at the pictures below.

Image 1: I've no idea the name for this flower.
Image 2: It looks like cherry blossom at my 1st glance.

After staying in Miri for more than 2 years, this was the first time I've seen such scene. However, this is the most that I can get. Guess I've wasted the opportunity to capture more flowers, most of the flowers were withered (refer to Image 1). I should have forced myself to capture those flowers earlier, darn! Oh, I forget to mention, those flowers along the road side were colourful though! Mainly were white, pink and purple!

Am I silly enough to stop by the road side just to capture flowers? Or am I a barbarian? XD

Anyway, 8 more pictures are available at HERE.
