Just a bunch of random photos from my corner of the world.
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!
Sky watch from my balcony
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"!!
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.
