Of Photography.. The Talang flower....

Above is the image of the Talang flower that I grow in front of my house. It a creeper plant, easy to maintain and it flowers all the years round. Thus it add the blue color to my Little Garden. The flower is often use in  food coloring. One of it many uses is in the coloring of the Rice blue in the making of  the Nasi Kerabu, a traditional Malay dish that originated from the east-coast  state of Kelantan.  

Have a nice day.

The Young Boy in his teens....

Woke up to a beautiful Sunday in June. I could hear the birds chirping and singing merrily in my Little Garden.  The happening in my Little Garden brought back memory of my days while camping in the woods during my scouting days. With that memory I thought that I would just write about me been a Boy Scout in my teen during my schooling days. I join the Boy Scout Movement as soon as I am eligible to do so. I registered myself as a scout by joining the Abdullah School Scout Troop; the 1st Kuantan Scout Troop. That began a journey of adventure until I left school after completing the Form V extermination in 1957. I never missed any of the activities of the Scout troop like going on camping and hiking. In scouting we learn about every aspect of leadership and many skills that would eventually help me greatly in my career in the government.  I took test to qualified myself to be a Queen Scout and in mid-1957 just before the country gained its Independence on 31st August 1957 I became the Queen Scout.  We all went all the way to Kuala Lumpur to receive the certificate in a grand ceremony at the Kuala Lumpur town Padang. The Queen Scout Certificate was personally handed over by the then British High Commissioner to Malaya. I blog here about the  presentation. Above is an image of myself in the Scout Uniform. 

Have a nice day.
