Rabbit Year Sourcing - Part 3a

Date: 31st January 2011
Location: Parents’ place, Melaka


Every time I return home, I wished to spend more time with my family. I have taken numerous photos of my parents’ house and I believe now is the best time to share them with my readers. In my previous post, I mentioned that my mum had green fingers and she has a collection of potted plants and outdoor decors.


▲ For once in Melaka, 28°C spring breezes fill the air


▲ Welcome to my mum’s mini botanical garden


▲ Mum’s favorite No.1 - Poppi, an active and silly dog who always perceives the garden toad as her toy


▲ No.2 - Daisy pendant light, anything with flower patterns will attract my mum


▲ No.3 - Vintage rattan chair



▲ No.4 - Shabby ducklings in water lily pot

• Spent couple of hours searching for the plants’ botanical and common names

▲ No.7 - Moss Rose (Portulaca Grandiflora)



▲ No.8- Petunia
