In 2002 the author was working in Brunei Darussalam as forestry officer based at the National Herbarium at Sg Liang. It was a time when digital photography was getting popular. The author bought himself a digital camera and began to take digital photographs as a hobby. During weekends and free time the author spent a lot of time taking digital photographs of wild orchids at the local market( or tamu) to build his digital photography database. During that time, it was common to see wild orchid sellers at the Brunei tamu especially in Gadong during weekends. The author had made many friends among the wild orchids sellers and eventually the author was invited to the private nurseries and orchid collections of these kind-hearted Brunei people.

The manuscript of the book was completed and deposited at the University Brunei Darussalam (UBD) library in 2003. The manuscript was revised and updated at the end of 2014 for the current publication after an electronic copy of the manuscript was delivered to Siti Zaleha Kaprawi of Astera Consultant / Pentagram Design sdn.bhd. This book was published in collaboration with the international school Brunei (ISB). Mr Mahmud Yussof of Bio-RIC / Heart of Borneo (Brunei) Project gave full support for the publication of the book.

The scientific content of the book would suffice to provide useful reference on the wild orchids of Brunei Darussalam, but as a coffee-table book design includes decorative designs and some famous quotes. Pictures of certain species are found in various places in the book to make it more reader-friendly.
