MORNING WALK AT TAMAN BOTANI


I have been visiting many beautiful gardens of Putrajaya since 2008 and I am glad to confess that I still enjoy it till yesterday when I took my wife for  a morning walk at Taman Botani,Putrajaya 

On the right is its famous little garden of Hibiscus flowers.I noticed there was a lot of pruning and cleaning going on-leaving only two red flowers.May be ,better luck next time.

As we walked by the lakeside,I saw a group of girls were on the jetty -enjoying the view of PM Residence  across the lake.At that time I was trying to take a photo of the weir but somehow I felt something is missing-the human element.So,I had to wait for these girls to walk along the jetty and enter my frame of my mind's eye.After a few minutes,when they started walking,I started shooting with my smart phone camera Note3.How I wish I have my Fujifilm X-T1 with me.


About 50 metres  away from The Spring Seafood Restaurant,there is a yellow steel jetty where there are hundreds of Javanese carps are swimming around.Most visitors like me take along a few slices of bread to feed them.They are hungry all the time and I love to see them fighting for little pieces of bread thrown to them.Sorry,I cannot show you the fish-my camera is not good enough to capture their images in the water.



The above is the inside part of The Moroccan Pavillion-located at the entrance of Taman Botani.To see the artefacts,you need to buy the tickets -RM3 per person.It is a great place to take photos,especially wedding photos.

What I enjoy most walking here is the view and the ambiance.It is isolated from the madding crowd out there and the cool breeze,the chirping of the birds on the trees and I am surrounded by the trees,the flowers and the lake,I could not ask for more.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002



The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..





"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?





'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

ON RAINS

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
