63 cm Rafflesia in bloom
PhotoHunt theme : A Close Up/Plant
Absolutely have to share this. My Malaysian doctor friend discovered this rare Rafflesia in a tropical forest during a hiking trip.
Rafflesia, among the world's largest flower, is nicknamed corpse flower. The flower smells like rotting flesh. I won't want to stand near it :)

Mas Cotek is used in traditional Malay healing preparations. As a drink, it is believed to be good for reducing blood sugar level, regulating blood pressure. It also reduces joints and nerves pains; cholesterol and removes toxins in our bodies.
