The recent long pause was a kind of "writer's block" for which I have yet to get a proper breakthrough. Fortunately, this being a leisure blog, where I can get away lightly. However, the "blogage" still exists for now, basically over my own confusion about the peculiarity of Royals, Kings, Queens and Princesses (palms, that is!).
So, thought I'd leave those awhile longer and delight myself with a batch, 13 altogether (a superstitious number?), of young Areca catechu (dwarf) recently sighted at Rivercity, Jalan Ipoh, KL.
