Macro Flowers Saturday #25

This is Pereskia Sacharosa. Locally known as Pokok Jarum Tujuh Bilah (Seven Needles Plant). The thorns are very sharp! Seriously long and sharp! It makes trimming very difficult as well. It's kinda herbal plant from the cactus family with medicinal properties. (The leaf, not the flower) It grows fast especially in tropical climate like ours in Malaysia.
I love the flowers of this plant. The colour is so bright and warm :)
It was known that chewing the leaves can help in curing diabetes, high blood pressure and even cancer. How true, I never know.. I tried chewing it and it tasted OK. Some will infuse it in boiling water and drink it and some even put it in their salad! It tasted bitter a bit, but is edible, no worry :) Even my hamster love it :D

Enjoy your weekend, my friends..

Raw(e) PINK

This is my first time joining the challenge of Raw(e). This week the theme is PINK. Lovely colour, of course, although I'm not a pink person - there's no pink in my wardrobe at all :p The rule is very simple - No editing to the photo. I like the idea :) Here's my photo for the challenge-a pink hibiscus taken during my recent holiday in Kuching, Sarawak.

Thursday Challenge

As for this Thursday challenge, the theme is "BEVERAGE". I've decided to feature my favourite beverage of all time - COFFEE :D I'm a coffee addict, I can't function without it! I drink any kind of coffee - cappuccino, latte, cafe au lait, black, double shot, 3-in-1, canned, just name it! As long as it's coffee, I drink it!!
Cheers to all coffee lovers!!

Today's Flower #105

Orchids in Sabah- taken during my recent visit to Sabah, East Malaysia.

Watery Wednesday #99

South China Sea, Sabah, East Malaysia.

A view from my hotel's window - overlooking the South China Sea. The islands where you can see from the photo comprises of 5 islands that form the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park. It's very near to the capital of Sabah i.e. Kota Kinabalu that you can actually go for a day visit there for a day's dive. It's heaven for divers, really! :) The building with the blue roof is called the Filipino market where you can find souvenirs, local handicrafts, pearls, seafood, anything- just name it!!

Mellow Yellow Monday #81

My first Egg Tarts

Egg tart. It's my favourite. I bought it all the time and suddenly thinking that maybe I can make it myself. And here's my home made egg tarts. Well, a little crooked here and there but the taste is awesome, really!! I definitely will not buying it anymore. Will keep on practising making it again..

Have a great Monday my friends!!

Macro Monday

My mulberry!! The photo on top is the female mulberry flower. My mom suggested making jam using this, but we have, like, 6-7 berries only on the tree:( ( Not a very healthy tree I bet) It will took forever to even have a 1/2 jar of mulberry jam!! I gave it to my hamster instead :D
