ChunXing Wong, you can spot them within the war memorial in Kundasang. There's plenty of them there.

This flower is beautiful. I would love to touch it to feel its texture.

Rachel I put in the scientific name for you. I really like these flowers - they feel and look translucent exactly like wax. It's a perfect name.

Nice spotting.

Thanks Mark. I thought it was an orchid type of plant. Thanks for the info.

Hi Rachael. This is not orchid. It is a climber called Hoya.
