I drew a portrait of my gardener for his 68th birthday. Long live gardeners, everywhere. More about Mr. Raman (that be his name) here. 

Mr. Raman, our gardener, chopping down the terrible bougainvillea last year. Sharon made a drawing to give to him for his 68th birthday!

Bluepea jelly for a picnic at Kampung Hakka Mantin. That crazy blue is from flowers, not a bottle! Soak the bluepea flowers (bunga telang) in hot water to get edible dye. Been a bit obsessed with this plant. I’m growing it all along our fence.

Found this huge snake skin in the garden couple of weeks ago. More scary than seeing the actual snake. My imagination is working overtime, turning the hypothetical snake into a 2-headed hydra that spits radioactive venom.

Peanuts planted by Zedeck’s parents, harvested by us. Wait, you mean peanuts don’t just come into the world in a colourful foil bag with Cap Tangan on it?

After more than a month in KL trying (and failing) to change the ruling regime, we are finally back in Port Dickson. We found: 

1. Animals had made themselves at home behind the art. 

2. Someone had magically cleared up that massive fallen nangka tree!!! (Turns out it was our dear gardener who dropped by while we were away)

3. The mint has flourished beyond my wildest hopes. 

4. Faded propaganda lying on our front porch. 

We got home from an extended KL stay to find half of our nangka tree fallen in the yard. Aiya! Headache la, headache!

Helping the pumpkins have sex. 

Today a male flower and female flower were both open at the same time! I poked my nasty finger into each one while murmuring apologies. 

Afterwards, I sniffed it (the finger) and it smelled of pumpkin. Erotic. 

(Thanks Chi Too for the sex tip!)

Spending a week in KL fucked up my circadian rhythm well and good, as it always does.
Came back to find little pumpkins on the rogue pumpkin vine.
I was so excited I made Zedeck look at it with me twice last night, by flashlight.

The pumpkin vine is flowering! This sucker grew out of the kitchen trash, now it’s 2m long.

Our gardener Mr. Raman bought a new engine for his grass cutter. Our garden is a massive a two-day job for him, so he locked it up on our front porch before leaving for the day.
Me: Beberapa harga?
Mr. Raman: 900 lebih.
Me: Tahan lasak ar?
Mr. Raman: Oh tahaannn. Dia bikin banyak kerja.
What are your tools of the trade, the ones that do the work (bikin banyak kerja)?
