Random photos from my corner of the world.

Nature's Fibonacci Sequence

Mathematics in the strangest of things

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!
You can read more about The King of Fruits here and here.

  1. Oh the food. Yummy.

    Love the beautiful flowers too.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  2. What a nice post:) thanks for your sharing...

  3. The Fibonacci sequence is just fun!,:-)
    The flowers are a mystery tome too, but they are cute.
    Enjoy your week!

  4. Aww Oreo was adorable. I've had a lot of different rodents over the years but I've never had a guinea pig.

  5. I didn't know that about the pineapple Veronica. Very interesting! The food you feature always looks so good! I like to watch the sky here with clouds. So pretty! Oreo was darling. I can see why he was missed.


  6. Everything in your photos is so colorful. I never realized that about pineapples. No more pineapple fields to visit but will check one fruit next time I visit the grocery store.

  7. Cute hamster she was! And yummy food, I´m getting hungry.
    Interesting facts on the pineapples. Clever name, too, we call them "Ananas"- makes no sense at all!
    No street food here since the darn Covid. Beautiful flowers, but no idea what these are.
    Can you eat durians?

  8. The hamster was very cute, and I understand you miss her a lot. I love my two cats too, and it's terrible when pets die. Wonderful view from your balcony!

  9. I love seeing the photos of your part of the world, so fascinating. And the Fibonacci sequence in so many plants and fruits is always an eye opener. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  10. The hamster was cute and I understand you miss her very much.
    The food looks delicious.
    I don't know the name of the plant.
    Greetings Irma

  11. As someone who has experienced Malaysian street food, I can vouch that it is delicious!

  12. Hello Veronica,
    Nice post with wonderful pictures.
    Lovely food and great to see the fresh pineapple. And so special to see that durian. I have search on the internet and saw It is a tropical fruit which I have never seen before. Very nice!!

    Greetings, Marco

  13. Gostei de ver esta bela serie de fotografias.
    Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

  14. I love all the photos, especially the food photos. Beautiful.

  15. I had no idea about the Fibonacci sequence in pineapples, so interesting.
    Beautiful flowers, I have never seen them.
    Never tried Durians, I have been told they smell terrible but are delicious.

  16. What a cute piece of art, the mosaics are beautiful Veronica.

  17. The food looks terrific and we're fans of fresh pineapple. Hugs as you remember dear Oreo.

  18. that fried pork looks amazing!! gorgeous clouds...looking up, never a disappointment!!

    air is air here BUT it isn't free, go figure!!

  19. You had some great photo collages in this post, Veronica Lee. The pineapple is certainly more interesting now. You must be on a high floor to get such wonderful cotton ball clouds compared to our 5th (highest floor) here. Oreo was very sweet and liked his head wear. All the foods made me hungry.

  20. I'm intrigued about durians. I don't think I have ever even seen one here, let along eat some of it.
    Fascinating information about the pineapple. Amazing how nature works!!

  21. interesting about the pineapples. And beautiful cotton balls. :)

  22. Oreo was so cute and I love the photos of the clouds in the sky - looks like such a nice day! :)

    Hope your week is going well!

    Away From The Blue

  23. Cute Oreo! Very sweet! My first thought was to ask if it was real - then I understood that it was and will never be forgotten. ❤️ I had many years ago a little hamster named Shoni. I know how are this sweet little creatures.
    I like the cotton balls! The prickly fruits are extraordinarily interesting!
    I see something like this for the first time!
    I don't know the name of the flower you don't know, but it's special - looks like... several pink bodies placed in a circle. 😊

    I wish you beautiful days, Veronica!

  24. The Malaysian street food looks Yummy. So many different things to eat. I love how you described the clouds as Nature's cotton balls. They are so pretty. The pink flowers are unusual, and the Durian fruit is interesting. Wonder what t tastes like. It's always a pleasure to see what's happening in your world, and random photos are my favorite. : )


  25. Hello,
    The food looks delicious! I wish I could grow pineapples here. Pretty clouds and sky captures. Oreo was a cutie, I am sure he is missed. Love the beautiful flower. Take care, enjoy your day and week ahead!

  26. I don't know King Fruits - they looks very exotic and so prickly. Cute Oreo - the Name is like german cookies brand. You have a fantastic skywatch from your balcony!
    Greetings from Germany

  27. Hi, dearest Veronica, I didn't know that pineapples are inviting to such mathematical games ;-) You have a great view of the sky from your balcony! You had a cute guinea pig. Ours was called Niki - it died in 2009. You can see a picture of him here:
    I have a suspicion about the plant:
    What do you think?
    All the best from Austria, Traude

  28. Oreo is my favorite photo here. I am so sorry, he is beautiful! Looks like there are a lot of pineapples growing there! I was going to ask YOU what these pretty pink buds are!

  29. Amazing photos, Oreo was absolutely lovely ♥

  30. Todas as fotos são maravilhosas!
    Adorei todas, muito bem clicadas!
    Beijinhos e bom fim de semana.

  31. Yummy looking food! I love trying dishes from other cultures. Beautiful sky watch photos. Have a great weekend!

  32. What a cute guinea pig! Mine died three years ago.. 😢 Hugs, Nicole

  33. The streetfood looks delicious! When I lived in Taiwan I always got my lunch and dinner (and sometimes breakfast, too) from the street vendors. It was so good!
    The guinea pig with its sombrero is so cute.

  34. Veronica - thank you so much for your recent visit to my blog. You have very nice collages too! I was excited about the guinea pig in the sombrero, and was sad to read lower down that this is your long-lost Oreo - RIP. Fascinating information about the pineapple!

  35. What beautiful photos and I am just fascinated over that mathematical pineapple growth.

  36. I am sure Oreo had the best of life. I like to believe we will be reunited with our fur family in the great beyond.
    Those egg roll type things look yummy. Would like to try them. Maybe with a little sweet and sour sauce or pepper jelly?
    Had no idea there was math involved in the 'design' of the pineapple. So interesting!! Nature is amazing.

  37. Ananas, un frutto che mi piace moltissimo.
    Buon inizio settimana

  38. Oreo was quite fetching in his hat! This photo made me smile.
    Thanks for linking up at

  39. Love the durians! Missed it the last time I was back.

  40. I liked the clouds photos... All is great as you took always 🙏☺️

  41. Aww at Oreo

    Nice post loved the photos and the food I want some heheh! 👀

    Have a scenictastic week 👍

  42. ...pineapple facts that new to me. Cute little critter with the hat.

  43. Lovely photos all and interesting information about the pineapple.

  44. What a sweet Guinea pig photo. She looks like she was much loved. I had to laugh about the durian fruit. I read your two other posts about the fruit. Is it that the taste is wonderful but the smell is unbearable?. Interesting post.

  45. You have one helluva view from your balcony. Lovely little creature, sorry it´s gone.

  46. Aren't durians the ones that smell rather bad but taste delicious? (I'll Google it after I send this). There are a few small farmers who grow exotic" (to us) fruits near our Florida home and I'm pretty sure I've seen, smelled, tasted, and liked one of these but didn't buy because they were gigantic in size. ... I enjoyed your photo collection.

  47. That is so interesting about how Pineapple grows. A favourite fruit here at home. Not so sure about Durian though - I've heard about it.

  48. Beautiful pictures, and the Pineapples, juicy fruit.

  49. I wonder if Fibonacci knew about pineapples.

  50. Oh the food. I want all the food and I love pineapple. It's my favorite fruit.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  51. beautiful pink flowers and interesting about the Fibonacci spiral - i love when I see that in nature.

  52. Wonderful variety of photos! Love the flowers and the durian are something new for me.

    Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!

  53. I never knew that about pineapples. Learned something new today.
    That hamster picture is so cute, and those cloud pictures from your balcony are just beautiful.

  54. Hello! I allowed myself to borrow a photo from your blog and post it, with the necessary link, here:
    Thank you very much!
