One of the uninvited creatures in the garden. This one thought to have rabies due to very temperamental personality, hissing and teeth baring on sight of humans. Nicknamed 'rabies'. Initially lived mostly in the covered drain with its 3 kittens, now decides to live in our garden. Suns itself on the garden bench, sleeps right outside the front door and poos everywhere. Theory for wild, aggressive behaviour: trauma due to being constantly chased by neighborhood kids. Very difficult to photograph, these are all with max zoom. Vicious eyes.
Curry leaves, hidden behind the lime in picture above
Pandan outside the home perimeter. My ex-neighbor received a warning letter from PJC for planting tapioca outside hers. My pandan has so far dodged the authorities, or more likey they just let it be...
Chilies, one in a broken pot and another on the vegetable patch. Where is the rest of the vegetable patch? Well...there is a patch but no vegetables yet. Watch this space
Pandan has been used for nasi lemak and to flavour the gula melaka for sagu gula melaka and made someone very happy, yum, yum. Curry leaves - what else? to make various types of curries ie chicken, beef, brinjals. Lime, lemongrass and tumeric leaves for rendang, masak lemak cili padi. The repertoire of receipes is limited but I also cook!
