what’s blooming?

I like coming home to Hakka Chan in Melaka. The peace, the tranquility amidst the fuss that mom and dad accord us, every time we are back home.

The most welcoming part though is Mom’s random garden. Each visit, there will be different plants blooming or new vegetable patches flourishing with new herbs.

This awfully deformed sunflower is one of our the latest blooms.


My favorite purple hydrangea, so abundantly elegant.


Sweet smelling and very shy Jasmine.

In the kampong, this flowering ginger plant is locally named “tissue paper flowers” because its crinkled corollas resemble crepe papers. Otherwise, it’s known as crepe ginger or  costus speciosus.


Somehow this yellow hibiscus command more respect than the red ones that are in full bloom on the background.
