  6. Hello, Veronica
    What a wonderful collection of photos. The Indian sweetmeats and shops look great. I have to look up Bintan on the map, it looks beautiful. The flowers are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your post. Take care, have a great new week.

  8. That Chinese vegetable dish seems good and healthy, Veronica :-)
    I was interested in your chart showing the percentage of citizens population by ethnic group in your country. Thanks for sharing such interesting information!
    I have never thought of about 7% Indians in Malaysia. An Indian journalist, Palki Sharma, sometimes wears the same cloths as I can see in your pictures.
    I can follow her through Wion, an Indian news channel headquartered in New Delhi ... she speaks in English, that's why I can heard that Indian channel.

    Always a joy to come here for reliving our fondest years of living on nearby Java.

  18. We actually have a little India near us as well. I think the shops there are a bit different than near you, though.

  19. Everything looks lovely through your eyes (and camera) as always. I could be perfectly comfortable in a Kurta -- I hate buttons, zippers, snaps and stuff like that -- I would rather wear something colorful that I can just slip on. It would suit me perfectly!

  20. Lovely photos and as usual I concentrate on the food heheh!

    Have a gallimaufreytastic week ๐Ÿ‘

  25. I could just manage a few of those Indian treats. Those are interesting figures about the Malaysia population.

  30. I love that last Kurta. The pink one is so pretty. I'm going to look them up now. I'm in love with those so much.

  31. I love the photos - and i'm always amazec by the colorful clothing women from India wear. I see food I didn't even know existed when I visit here, lol. It looks good - that stir fry especially.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to be on one of those poolside loungers away from the horrors of the world. The flowers on the poison vine are pretty, but the tendrils coming from them makes it look like poison dripping from them!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I always love your photo collages. So pretty! Those sweets look delicious. We are in SA, but my sister works for an Indian business and their sweets and especially cookies are always the best.

    Interesting facts about Malaysian population.

    Hope you had a good week so far.

  35. The flowers always look so beautiful and I did not know the proper name for that form of Indian dressing, so thank you for sharing! :)

    Hope that your week is going well! The flood waters have gone down here so we are no longer flooded in which is awesome :)

  43. I had to look up the word gallimaufry, as I have never heard of it before. I do love your medley of lovely photos that have the appearance of nothing to do with each other. They are interesting, and the dresses in the window look like something I would consider wearing.
