This is one of those very unique and rare orchids. It is endemic to Kinabalu and it called the 'Slipper Orchid' (Paphiopedilum rothschildianum). Unfortunately it is so rare that it is worth a lot of money on the black market. Unlike all the other orchids that were growing freely in the garden, this one was put behind bars for its own safety. Sad to know people try to steal orchids like this out of nature. It is already endangered, why can't we respect nature and help it, instead of destroying it even more?
