Back to Mombasa, Kenya again
Male, Smaller size beautiful colors.
Female is bigger less colorful.
I was doing consultant work in Kenya for 5 weeks and was able to have the opportunity to visit one of national reserved game park.
Tropical arrangement how appropriate for the party. My young sister throws this party she spent so much money on the decorations everything was ordered from Hawaii. She orders a bunch of plumeria flower “dok jam pa” for people who attend the party to make their own lei.
Everybody all dresses in Hawaii outfit except a few people.
Mom is buzz she can’t drink she thinks if is sweet there ‘re not much alcohol. Hahah
I even made lei for my little monkey.
Perfect weather no humidity just right. San Diego blue sky white fluffy cloud this type of weather reminded me of Xieng Kaung. Another business trip, great city to be in. I just published a paper and presenting it this year national conference. I won’t have that much free time but I will make the best of what I have.
Gorgeous day too bad I have to be stuck in the conference room all day boo hoo…
My first fish taco, the fish was well seasoned and perfectly grilled. The coleslaw has a zest of lime juice and oregano not the typical East Coast slaw loaded with heavy mayonnaise. The slaw, salsa and the fish great combination after the meal.
After my lunch I walked to the park and just enjoy the cool sunny day. Some of the boats on the dock are gorgeous some have helicopter wow I’m sure that’s pretty pricy.
This reminded of “Sam law” back home.
There were so many interesting sculptures set along the walking path there was never a dull moment I have walked way too far than I thought and time is not on my side I don’t want to be late for my own presentation.
I’m not sure if this is the nature of how the tree grow or with the wind constantly blowing they all bended in some odd way I was just amazed of how the trunk of the trees are so white.
I made it back on time for the afternoon conference I snapped the last picture of the day.
I have rarely see this flower I remembered as a child I would pick this flower and strings them together to make lei.
People keeps telling me if you did not have a beignet you did not visit New Orleans. So what did I do?, the first thing in the morning I walk over to the french market and settle for high carbohydrate breakfast.
At my parents’ place every year he does this ceremony offering to his dad. You noticed the large altar are set up with varieties of foods and fruits, sweets and items that his dad liked when he was still alive. Read more…
I got this plant from a friend of a friend fifteen years ago. I didn’t think it would survive this long, since I had neglected to water it for weeks or even months. I don’t think I have ever fertilize it, I was ready to gave up on this plant, then I have second thought I decided to give another year maybe. I gave it plenty of water. Well, guess what ! two weeks ago this is what I saw for the first time in fifteen years.Shock beyond shock, this plant decided to produce flowers when I’m was ready pitch in the dumpster.
You’ll be the judge whether is worth the wait. I was alway wonder is desert plant since it can survive without water for so long.
In the mean time I am so obsessive with orchids. I will do everything and anything to have this things flowers fertilized it, water it regularly, move it around the house to get the sunlight it needed, and even talk to the darn thing.
Behind the orchids is the plant that produce the star like flowers. Most of the orchids plant are coming into bloom. Is it science or green thumb? one wonders……..
The first time I have seen snow was January 1979, my family and I immigrate to the United States. I looked outside the apartment and saw kids playing in heavy snow. Sled riding down the hill on the church property it looks like they were having a good time, while I was inside trying to keep warm. Read more…
