Misplaced Flowers

Some people say a weed is just a misplaced flower.

If you just care to look closely and learn more about these unloved plants, you might appreciate their beauty and virtues.

Inconspicuous and easily overlooked ...

smaller than a pea ...

Untamed ...
Billy goat weed

Coat buttons

Weeds are flowers too,

once you get to know,

Crepe Myrtle

Dumplings for dinner
Legend has it that if you don’t eat dumplings during Dongzhi/Winter Solstice (traditional festival in China) your ears will freeze and fall off!

Food truck 

Cendol  dessert comprising shaved ice, worm-like green rice flour jelly, coconut milk, red beans and palm sugar syrup.

I can still recall the look on Cousin Victor's face when we told him the green jelly strands in the Cendol that he was enjoying happily were worms! We were kids then and Cousin Victor from Australia was visiting Malaysia for the first time.  His face turned as green as the jelly "worms"!!

more food trucks ...

Mangosteen season!

A loud whir and the smell of freshly cut grass ...
Strapped with an engine on his back and donning a large hat and protective gear to shield him from flying debris and our scorching Malaysian sun, the grass cutter is seen here from my balcony trimming brush and square foot upon square foot of grass on our condo grounds.
Sometimes, he gets a little help from a friend.

Leave It In The Hands Of The Lord

A wee flower no bigger than a quarter ...

... flourishing in the wild...
Chinese violet

And if God cares
so wonderfully for 
He will certainly 
care for you.

Thai lunch today  Moo Grob

In loving memory of Oreo —  it has been 5 years since her passing.
Gone but never forgotten

Air and water at a gas station except that ...
... air here isn't air!  Air (pronounced as aiyer) is water in Malay and angin is air!  Go figure!

Malaysia street food

Popiah  spring roll made from a soft, thin paper-like crepe with a filling of  julienned jicama, tofu, carrot and cucumber.

I haven't the faintest idea what these are. Anyone?

Durian season!!

It is not uncommon to see durians on sidewalks displayed by vendors during the durian season!
