Glimpse of Greenery in Melaka


Pandan plant

As I travel in Melaka, I took some plant snapshots here and there…That pot of pandan on the wooden floor against the wall is a pretty sight.


And another pandan

I wonder if the human being behind that potted pandan uses it for purposes other than green ornamentation.


Meanwhile, those untamed hanging container plants against a wall with artwork caught my attention, for it seems that the water dripping from clothes has something to do with its flourishing state. Like an unintentional irrigation system.


And then there was this traditional house in Kampung Morten with potted plants giving an impression of pleasantness and hospitable atmosphere, and not the stiff ‘architectural digest’ garden look.

Potted Wisteria


Strolling in Kajiwara somewhere near the streetcar station, I spotted a wisteria on a pot. Container flower gardening is their way of beautifying the frontage of their small homes or shops and one of the many street scenes I find pleasantly cute in Japan.

Tiered Enamel Lunch Box


Enamel four-tiered lunch box (and also the stainless steel three-tiered one inside the plastic bag) of store staff, in a small table, in the sidewalk, just across the store from where they work.
