A visit to plant nursery is necessary whenever Chinese New Year is coming. We buy potted plants and flowers to beautify our home. With only a week left to CNY, all I saw mostly at my regular plant nursery is chrysanthemum. I didn’t buy the mums though instead I bought 2 other flowering plants which I’ve no idea of their names and a lime plant. Haha
To me, chrysanthemum has always been a regular flower. A flower that’s too normal to my liking. However I’m starting to appreciate its beauty more in recent years. I searched the web for the reason why chrysanthemum is a favorite choice during CNY and come to a zero conclusion. LOL There are various reason stated such as nobility, longevity, perfection, joy… Mmmm thinking hard, I guess chrysanthemum symbolizes all the above. 😉
Let’s appreciate the beauty of chrysanthemums…
Sea of chrysanthemums.
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.
