I managed to extract two informative articles pasted on the inner side of  toilets cubicle partition in Singapore Botanic Gardens.  The open-concept toilets surrounded with beautiful plants and chirping birds is indeed a good place for inspirations!

1) Do you know the milky saps from Chiku trees (manilkara zapota) produces a gum that was the original source of chewing gum?  Does it remind you of the ‘Chicklets’ brand chewing gums or others?

2) Do you know the sea coconuts in our local dessert are from the fruit of palm, borassus flabellifer.  The male and female inflorescences are born on different plants.

While doing your business, you’ll enjoy the beautiful plants and birds chirping around you.  What more, you can enrich yourself with this information.  Isn’t it an idea as brilliant as the beaming sun!
