The First Move - Laman Tampin

This is how the present Laman Tampin looks like. Its my dream to to upgrade the landscape ......
Before any action taken, the old lady's approval is a must

My mom who is now 82+ has cared for this "kampung" for more than 30 years

The backyard - an outhouse, chicken-coupes and a garage

22 August 2008 : a first move to clean up the backyard. Pak Teh Ali (the appointed contractor) at work assisted by Izwan, Azlan, Papa and yours truly too.

Laman 2008

Laman 2008, Taman Tasik Perdana KL, 21 July 08

Me and hubby spent whole afternoon looking forward to learn more on flora and landscaping but we were disappointed that it was a lesser presentation compared to the 2006 which was a great work done by the Jab Lanskap Negara.

Anyway, I made a finding, ie : bunga telang that gives blue colour to nasi kerabu. Not sure that it is still being used now since we can get food coloring off the supemarket shelf. Datin Seri (YAB PM'swife) "edible garden" was a comendable effort and am sure the public can learn a lot from the display.

also known as : Asian Pegionwings
Group : Dicot
Family : Fabaceae
Duration : Perennial
Growth Habitat: Vine/Herb –
climbing plant with relatively long woody stems

Got a few shots on Kelantan features :-

That too was a good effort but the state of Perak and Johor have done great job.

Long overdue update

No excuse is a good excuse. Sure there have been great happenings since mid 2007 till this date. On top of the list was the date: 15 Oct 2007 that marked end of my service with Tourism Malaysia and instead on the monthly salary in the bank account, now would just be the monthly pension payment from the treasury.

That particular day was 2nd day of the Eidulfitri festivity. What more..birthday cake for the October babies - Adik, Kak Long Jenab with her daughter Eza and cucu Azelea, brother-in-law Kamaruddin and yours truly, though feeling shy, I did love blowing the candle and slicing up the befday cake at age of 57.
