Each individual will not escape from the stress either in School, College, University, home, workplace and so forth. Including me, as a student, I often hit by a lot of pressure or stress especially when the assignments must be completed by the stipulated time. Stress sometimes makes me feel headache, joint pain, loss of spririt, loss of interest, loss of appetite and worse without realizing it, an emotionally began distrubed. My feelings became increasingly sensitive, angry, lost and temper especially when driving and cannot focus on what I do especially in my study. Although I am a positive person, but sometimes I had also do not escape from the stress.

Last weekend, when I was in the stressful situation because there's many assignments that I had to prepare. I had decided to stepped foot into Taman Botani, Putrajaya to take some pictures themed "Healthy Malaysia" to fulfill the subject of Photo Communication's assignment. Exactly hours at 9.00am I was entered the park. I just fall in love with the environment, which is so peaceful, quite, calm and comfortable, looks dew still damp grass and green foliage that covers an area of 230 acres of this park. I have seen a few men and women are jogging and cycling. There are also parents observe children who are having fun playing and running over a bridge made from wood and with greenery environment surrounded by nature. I felt pleasured when I saw them enjoying the morning with healthy activities while breathe fresh air. I was really enjoy the beauty of nature until it is made me forgot the moment of my goals I was there. After taking several pictures of my photo's assignment, I was so excited to continue my journey in the park which is the first time I had visit.

I continue to walk on the bridge steps known as the "Canopy Bridge" in the Explorer's Trail zone while enjoying the beauty of gardens filled with throw of 700 species life plan from over 90 countries in tropical South America, Africa and the Asia Pacific region. A panoramatic view of greenery in the park makes me feel very calm and all the congestion in my head was gone just like that. I have seen the unique species of plans in this park. My curiosity is begun to learn into the existed in more species of plans that I never seen before. There are various types of plants that are scarce in other parks. I am so tired after running in the zone of Plam Hill, Floral Gardens and Lakeside. In each zone I was able to enjoy various plants species is available in some parts of Heliconia Trail, Vine Garden, Sun Garden, Lake Boardwalks, African Collection, Tropical American Collection, Bougainvillea Tunnel, Orchid Path, Floral Steps, Asia Pacific Collections, Hibuscus Walk, Wlak Pandanus, Canna and also the Fern Garden Walk.

Other than various species of life plants from over 90 centuries, the best things in this park is when I found there are many of facilities for visitors. For instance, the Visitor Interpretation Center (VIC), here I can learn more about science and life plants. In addition, there are facilities of guided tour, for my next visit I am sure that I can get more knowledge about this park by going on tour with the tour guide. Furthermore, to learning about plants and enjoy the greenery of nature I also have the opportunity to learn more about arts in Spanish Morocco and Moroccan Pavilion, I have seen a Myriad of patterns and designs from the four famous, royal cities of Fez, Meknes, Marrakech and Rabat. It is awesome but But it would be great enough if I can learn more about the art of other countries. Suddenly, I was attracted by the Tram Ride facility, which is I can take a ride through the park on the Tram and I have covered 2.2km in only for 30 minutes. Other than a that, there are also provided the bicycle rental and paddle boat rental facilites.

I did not realize that the time was passed so quickly. At 3.30pm, suddenly I felt so starving. The enjoyments of the beauty and nature exploration made me almost forget my lunch. But the stress was gone away and it will never come back again. From this moment, I realize that I have found a way to release my stress away. Before I am leaving , I was take the opportunity to taste the fresh seafood menu with having lunch at Putrajaya Seafood Restaurant. Before I am going home, I was stop for a while to shop in the Souvenir Shop. For more information about Taman Botani, Putrajaya, you can visit
