Got time to smell the flowers? (part 2)

In the Science Centre there is a big cylindrical plastic container with about 300,000 seeds at the moment (June 2000). The target is to collect one million Saga seeds. When that is reached, children will be able to see concretely what ‘one million’ of something looks like.
Incidentally, if you are collecting the bright red Saga seeds for your children, the tree at the corner of Block A and Oei Tiong Ham Building has a lot of seeds at the moment. There is another Saga tree behind the Security post near House 5.

Is the well-known Malaysian car known as the Proton Saga named after the Saga seed?

Sorry, I don’t know the answer to that question, do you?
