As I Wander...

Living in tropical Malaysia, we tend to take the hot humid weather, thundery rainstorms and the spectrum of wild evergreen plants as a given.

Recently, I noticed more exotic plants making its way into landscaped home gardens, recreational parks, frontages of shopping malls and
commercial buildings.

Along kerb sides of residential streets and busy motorways, palms, trees and flowering plants make pleasant and interesting fringes.

This is a record of the various species "as I see it" for I am in awe of palms. Hence, my premise for this blog is that the global garden,
i.e. every physical garden (tended or untended), becomes a part of my, simply said, cyber palm garden. ;-)

The Secret Garden of 1Utama #3

Putting a pause on the Secret Garden is never easy.  Since my first visit, there's always an urge to re-visit in order to see what changes nature has in store. What I have not done for awhile is to introduce to my followers and visitors alike, the rich feast of colours, textures, shapes and forms that this Secret Garden has accorded me.

I may not know all their pretty names and their tags were not neccessarily in its place since awhile ago, but I feel obliged to paint this post with what I have recorded to reflect more entries in its secret bosom.

Especially for flora art's sake, do enjoy the kaleidoscope... pity I can't post the 'fragrance' of local herbs, spices especially ginger rhizomes and their lovely flowers and other exquisite perfumed fragrances from flowers like the star jasmine or rangoon creeper. 
(and if I'm missing out on certain colours of the palette, don't mind me, just colour-biased! ;-) 

ceriman/swiss cheese plant (monstera deliciosa)
tubaroot vine (derris elliptica)
red ginger (alpinia purpurata)
asian foxtail (uraria crinita)
thai gold banana (musa siamensis)
saw palmetto (serenoa repens)
red ginger (alpinia purpurata)

rangoon creeper (quisqualis indica)

giant taro (colocasia gigantea)

Serenity rules...


  1. You write so well and you are going unnoticed :(

    You should try the "multimedia radio channel". Write in Malaysia, you can practically become a star there!
