Dill, Dill, I Love Youuuu
(singing to the tune of a popular 40s Chinese song: Rose, Rose, I Love You)
But why are you dying on me???
I tried saving you by giving you larger home, richer soil and 6 hours of sun.
But you’re still dying on me… why? why? why?
Am I killing you softly?
Hey at least I was able to capture your beautiful flower before you lose all your glory!
This is a commemorative post to mark the soon-to-be passing of my dill NOT.
Don’t worry I’m not that emo. Hehe Still it’s a little sad not knowing how to save a dying plant. Feeling helpless here.
Come check out some of the pictures I took of the lovely dill flower.
No photoshop involved. This is a straight out of camera (sooc) picture.
I’ve been to Kuan Yin Teng (temple) in Setapak for many years and this is the first time during CNY that I brought my camera along. This temple is unique in such a way that it is situated in one of the shop-houses along Jalan Pahang. Renovated though. Parking is quite difficult during God festivities since it’s located in a very busy main road. I have include a parking tip at the bottom of this page.
Ok, let’s start with some CNY decorations…
A must: Lime tree (kat).
Happy Chinese New Year!
I went to Kuan Yin Temple in Klang few days back. This temple is usually very pack but because it was dinner time, we had no problem finding parking (wohoo). We arrived to the sound of the monks praying, their voices heard through the loudspeakers. It was also a very windy evening. Everyone had difficult time lighting the candles (what a challenge!) and then in the end the wind blew them off (all of it… haha).
Let’s check out some of the Chinese New Year decoration in Kuan Yin Temple, Klang.
Large lantern at the entrance to the main temple.
Right after a brief visit to the bamboo trees, I walked to the next neighbor’s yard. Pretty red and white flowers are what attracts me to her mini garden.
This ain’t a good composition.
Anyway just wanna show you the flowers.
There’s this place in my neighbor’s yard that I pass by every day with Chester. They have 2 bamboo trees which complements the house perfectly. I like walking there. When I’m underneath it, I feel like a whole new world has open up. The effect of good feng shui from bamboo I guess.
Ahh if only the yard is a public garden, I would have bring a mat and spend my day looking up.
After my brief ‘wish come true’ visit to Vivekananda Ashrama, I proceed further down the road for more discovery.
Here are some short snippets of Brickfields’ Little India.
This beautiful fountain is situated at the junction of Jalan Tun Sambanthan and Jalan Travers.
