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

Bauhinia Kockiana

Daytime moon

Lunch   Pad Nam Prik Pao Talay
The name is a bit of  a mouthful but this Thai stir-fry is really amazing. 
Koi pond in our condo  one of my favourite spots

Economy rice
Economy rice, as the name implies, is a cheap and fast meal option outside of home. Economy rice stalls typically consist of a case/table containing anywhere from 10-15 troughs of cooked food, including meat, vegetables, eggs and tofu dishes.

Here's how it works ...
You fill up a plate with white rice. Then you proceed to pile on as much or as little dishes as you want.  Next, you show the vendor your selections and they calculate the cost based on the number of dishes you have taken. 

The dishes are simple and affordable

That's how Malaysian students sustain themselves through college.

Two desert rose variants

My Corner of the World


  1. I like all the veggies I see in that typical Thay dish 🌽πŸ₯¦πŸ₯• and the
    cheap and fast meal (economy rice) may be a good option when we are outside of home for job ... it's heathier than hot dog or pizza πŸ•πŸŒ­
    Fantastic view of the moon from your balcony πŸŒ“

    Have a nice week ahead of you ☀️

  2. ...I like your desert roses! Here we have Smart Tag only! Enjoy your week.

  3. Hello Veronica,
    I love to watch the photos from your corner of the world! The flowers are very beautiful.
    Have a wonderful week!

  4. Dearest Veronica,
    Always nice for being back in South East Asia through your images.
    MISS the food so much... so healthy and such a variety of vegetables.
    The flowers also are a treat for the eye; year round.
    Guess what? Yesterday in Atlanta we bought us Rambutan2 so we're happy.
    Yep, other readers don't understand the Malay plural sign...πŸ˜‰
    Have a nice Wednesday and sending you hugs,

  5. Veronica, you make my day! Amazing presentation! I love it.
    Thank you for entering this post in the game!
    Happy WW and a fine week!

  6. The views from your "corner of the world" are always interesting.
    Beautiful photos of the full moon. It's very scenic over the city.
    As an animal lover I also like the photos of the fishes.
    The veggie dish looks delicious.

  7. Hello Veronica,
    All your flowers are beautiful. The Koi fish are pretty, too, it is nice to have a pond near your Condo. Love the moon and sky view images. Lovely photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your day and week ahead.

  8. Great photos as always. I especially loved the red flower and fish photos:)

  9. Love your corner of the world, beautiful and yum!

  10. Lovely corner of the world, each has it's colourful items, love them.

  11. I like the economy rice idea. My daughter used to live in Fremantle Australia, they had something similar there with different cuisines, it was very good. The Bauhinia Kockiana are beautiful.

  12. first off i love koi ponds - i could spend hours there. Economy rice - i would also eat there often. Looks so good. Love the flower photos - beautiful. The orange and yellow - great for autumn.

  13. Oh the food. I want some of each of those dishes.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  14. I love stir fry, I made some last night. I love the flowers.
    Economy rice almost looks like something we have here called a buffet. But we pay one price to get in and eat as much as we want from the different dishes.

  15. Beautiful, loving the stunning array of photos, mmmmm that food is mouth watering.. xx

  16. Beautiful flowers, and I love the photos of the koi pond.
    Economy rice looks like it includes some very tasty toppings.

  17. Love your shots of the economy rice selections. Haven't gone for one for a long while now.

  18. Oh, boy!!!! Am I hungry now! This looks yummy! We have nothing like that.
    And how can they do this for this price?!

    Here we have Chinese - quite more expensive and it all tastes the same. Boring.
    Indian is good, though, but Ingo cannot have it.

    Beautiful flowers, too!
    You voted from the car? We live behind a rock here!!

  19. What beautiful pictures of the flowers and everything else.
    The food looks delicious.
    Greetings Irma

  20. Muy buena selecciΓ³n. Preciosas las flores.
    Buen miΓ©rcoles.
    Un abrazo.

  21. Love your photos from your corner of the world. The fish are pretty big but beautiful. Have a great day and thanks for sharing.

  22. I love the pictures you share with such amazing and gorgeous flowers, down to that wonderful food from where you live! It's like a vacation on the other side of the world through photos!

  23. I would love to eat at that buffet. Everything looks delicious, and the fact that it is reasonably priced makes it all the more appealing.

  24. Those flowers are all so pretty and the food always looks so delicious! I could eat a couple of plates of food!


  25. Wonderful photos. I love the flowers and the fish.
    Tasty looking food too.
    Enjoy the week...

  26. Wow! I like the Koy, and the flowers, and the moon. Amazing post, Veronica!

    Happy WW!

  27. The Bauhinia Kockiana is beautiful. What a striking color. I've seen fish just like that at a nursery in the area that I grew up at. The Pad Nam Prik Pao Talay looks really good.

    Have a lovely rest of the week.


  28. What gorgeous photos!! The, Bauhinia Kockiana is absolutely beautiful, it reminds me of the fall colors here in Idaho. The Koi fish are so pretty! Malaysia is such an amazing country, thank you for sharing all of it's beauty and culinary goodness with us!! Have a wonderful week. Veronica!

  29. Hello Veronica,
    What a nice pictures. Wondewrful flowers and tasty food. I love it.

    Greetings, Marco

  30. Your photos are always full of interesting things - Economy Rice is a good idea for students! The Thai dish looks delicious, and the flowers so very pretty. Enjoy the rest of the week.

  31. Love the delicious looking Thai food, the Economy Rice idea, the pretty koi fish and gorgeous flowers!

  32. beautiful flowers and very colorful Koi fish. :)

  33. A daytime moon is rarely so clear or a cauliflower dish so appetizing. :)

  34. In Jan last year, I went to such a place (Economy Rice) in Penang. It was recommended by a bystander as the food court we were looking for was closed. The place was packed! Are these places open now?

  35. I love these, especially the orange and yellow flowers. Magnificent.

  36. We have had a daytime moon lately, too. My grands get a big kick out of it when the moon and sun are both out at the same time.

    Lovely capture of the flowers and the koi. Economy rice is my kinda joint!!

  37. I don't know what it is about koi fish, I really like them, I have 2 of them tattooed on the back of my neck.

  38. I love seeing your random photos, snapshots of your world. The delicious food photos always make me very hungry!


  39. Veronica - the stir fry looks delicious. I remember being a poor college student; my favorite lunch was frozen yogurt and popcorn! Beautiful koi pond!

  40. Various different things spice up this post. I’m intrigued by the koi pond with reflection of blue sky and ripples and the exotic, beautiful flowers. The dish looks so delicious.


  41. Thank you so much, for your lovely comment, on my blog. -smile-

    What a wonderful group of photos, of where you live! Plus information, like Economy Rice. Happy for students there. No need to cook. Which is always nice, along with the 'Economy' part.

    Away From The Blue

  45. The Bauhinia Kockiana colors were so beautiful, Veronica Lee, and really made me think autumn. And, the foods as always look so good even in your photos without a taste test!

  46. Those Malaysian students have more choices than our useless students. All they ever do is cook Heinz beans on toast. Lazy monkeys!

  47. What lovely photos and views and all that lovely food looks gorgeous :-)

    Have a gallimaufrytastic week πŸ‘
