Just a bunch of random photos from my corner of the world.

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!

 Sky watch from my balcony


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.

  8. Huh! Dumplings, please!!!
    Great skies and, my, do I miss street food.
    We stood in line once 45 minutes for a burger - and it was so worth it.
    No festivals since "Corinna".
    Love the worms, my Nieces would flip and run, LOL.
    Ingo as kid refused to eat the tips of asparagus as in German they are called "heads". His parents sure were glad to "help" him!!! (How mean). You really end leaving me with another earworm?! As if yesterday wasn´t enough! ;-)

  9. I love seeing your photos. Beautiful sky. I love dumplings for dinner or lunch. The legend only serves as an excuse to eat more dumpling.

    There is a fabulous view from your balcony, Veronica. With regards to dumplings, I think each country has its legend.
    That's a nice post which show particular things of that special place of the world.

    Enjoy the rest of the week, Veronica 😎🌺☀️

  15. You have a wonderful collection of colours in your neighborhood Veronica. I would have a great time photographing the food trucks and sampling your street food. Perhaps not green worms though.

  16. Great street food in Malaysia. I remember it well.

  17. Dearest Veronica,
    Having lived and worked for three years in Indonesia, we never ate from the food vendor stalls in the street. Looking at their bucket in which they 'rinse' the plates tells you enough... That would be very, very dangerous.
    Love the sweet bean dessert, similar to the one in Vietnam!
    Hugs,
    Mariette
