I have missed one of the most beautiful sight. I feel like kicking myself for not having a camera with me to capture the flowers which Penangites term ‘sakura’.
The most beautiful sight was near the Batu Lancang market, on the way to Aliran’s office. The road next to the used to be the Olympia college was soooooo beautiful. Yesterday noon, I was driving home after my class. It was drizzling. The fallen petals turned the road pinkish. I called my hubby to bring the DSLR camera so that when I went home to pick him, we can later go and take the photos.
Unfortunately, by the time we finished our chores, it was already dark.
There is one hawker place, very much hidden from the main road. The place is call Kedai Makanan Labu or something. We went there to have dinner and sat outside, surrounded by flowers.
My son asked me, “Ma, what do you call pumpkin in Bahasa Malaysia?”
Me : Labu
Son : What do you call curry pumpkin?
Me : Kari labu
Son : Say it like how Hokkien ahpek ahpoh say
Me : ……………………………
You get the meaning? If you mispronounce the kari and it sounds kani.
