Again,yesterday Her Majesty,the Queen of MyCasa,has summoned the service of her photographer royale to take picture of two flowers blooming in her garden.I don't know the name of the flower, but it smells nice.Have a good weekend to all:-)
Today is a special day for me.I was officially appointed by Her Majesty The Queen of My Household to be the photographer.As a 'professional photographer',I must charged my client an appropriate fees commensurate with my new status.On the right/below are some of the photos from Her Majesty's Garden and my fees is a bungkus of nasi kerabu with daging bakar from Kedai Pak Wan,Pasar Komplek,Taman Nirwana;-),Ampang.
My neighbour is a very dedicated garder.The photo shown is a wild tulip which only bears flowers ONCE a year and worse,the flowers only last for a few days.Given to me,with no green fingers and no patience,this plant will die in a month.This morning,his wife asked me to take a few photos.Here is one of them.Others can be seen at my Flickr website.
I have a pleasant suprise yesterday that I saw these few flowers bloomed in my garden.Actually,I am not qualified to say it is my garden because all the hard work was done by wife.Anyway,when a flower blooms,I usually lay claim that it is my garden;-)
In fact, it was there a few days earlier but many a time,I just took my garden for granted and failed to notice the beauty of this flower.This analogy applies to other things in our lives.Sometimes, when it is gone,then only we realise its beauty etc.With flowers, we need to get near them,look closely and then only you will appreciate their beauty.MasyaAllah!
So young men and women out there....don't rush so much.Please stop and smell a few flowers on your way:-)
NB: My thanks to my wife who keeps on maintaining 'my' garden even though there were no flowers for months.
The rain began at about 6:30am this morning.As I am typing this note,it has already stopped.If it had continued for the last two hours as heavy as it began,some parts of KL may be flooded.Personally,I love the rain since I was small.Today,I like it because it cleaned the air and I feel cooler.Not only me, but there are pots of plants in my wife's garden that have been waiting for the blessings from the sky.
So far this year,our garden had one blooming flower!When I asked my wife why we are not getting as many nice flowers like last year or the years before,she answered:"I am too tired to take care of the garden".Now,I began to understand why there are quite a number of older people at public gardens.Gardening takes a lot of efforts and time.I hope the plants in our garden today had a real good time today when the rain fell quite heavily for about 30 minutes.Why not me? I was never good at gardening and my fingers are 'brown'(not green)-only good enough to type this note and click the button on the camera.
I am sad to note that now I don't see any flowers in the my garden and some leaves are dying...
By the way, here is the red one I like.Now,it is only memory..
This photo was taken at my mother's garden when I went home to visit her last two days. The 'gayong tempurung' reminds me of my childhood days when only a few in the kampung wore shoes/slippers. The people used the gayong to get water from the tempayan to wash their feet before they came into our house.
