During the last weekend of November, I finally grab my chance to visit the fame paddy fields in Sekinchan which I heard so much about. It certainly didn’t disappoint and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax or for photography purpose. The weather forecast said it was going to rain in mid morning but we were presented with a stubborn sun until late evening where it began to shower. It was so warm that I came back with tanned arms as souvenir from my good times at Sekinchan.
After having our brunch at a coffee shop in Sekinchan, we proceed to the paddy field.

Of all the flowers in the world, chrysanthemum is the only flower that is widely available in any florists in Malaysia. Don’t you agree, fellow Malaysians?
Dad’s birthday was few weeks ago. We bought him a cake and Baskin Robbins’ ice-cream. That’s how I came to have some dry ice in hand (from the ice-cream).
Thought I’ll play with the dry ice and water to create more fog (vapour). Unfortunately the shot is nowhere interesting. 🙁 If you’re wondering what the pink thingy is…
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.
Have not been taking pictures (the leisurely kind) lately except food photos. All I concentrate on is Faith, Faith, Faith! Hahaha Anyway below are some of my favorite shots taken few months back.
Remember the few
super-stunning photos (with photoshop actions) I took of a fir tree? Well, I saw one that dried up. It’s so pretty although it’s no longer alive.
Is it autumn?
