This plant easily found everywhere. iTs fast growing shrub make it as one of our invasive species. It also become covering plant for rubber plantation area. It is a climber. Small and hard stems like wire. 3 area leaf like grape leaves and a a very strong smell if crushed. Flower white in color. Fruit edible when ripe. Fruit covering like some sort insect trapping plant but no scientific data shown that this plant insectivore.
it is one of my favorite plant when i was small kid.

Red wattled Lapwing

I manage to capture this lovely bird this afternoon. when the sun nicely shone to this grammy award winner. Why grammy award winner? because they're one of the best acting skill in bird world. Lapwing nested on the ground, aka no nest. they just drop the egg on the ground and put some pebble to make it more camouflage. Every time their enemy approach eg. monitor lizard, snake even macaq monkey they either pretend they have broken leg or broken wing to ensure their enemy will try chasing them and divert the direction furthur from the nest to safety. this is what i call The grammy award winner in bird world.

Morning treat

i wake up early this morning tying to catch some good picture of insect. No luck. All the same insect. but i do got few interesting picture to share. the first one are water droplet that for me so refreshing. 2nd one are closeup of "mirmosa pudica" flower. some people called it "Shy Princess", some call it "touch me not". "Ojigisaw" are the Japanese name. The most interesting part are the leaves that is sensitive to touch. This behaviour make them superior weed. Whenever grasshopper land they shut, so no grasshopper problems. when butterflies try to land to lay eggs, Butterflies cannot sit comfortably, no eggs no future caterpillar. The spikes around the stems are to prevent grazing animals. This is ultimate self defend in nature world. Eventhough this plant origin from Central America but they're sucessfully thrive here in Southeast Asia Regions.

The Return Of..

Whoaaa. when i search around i didn't realize that i still have this blog. Not updated for 2 years. Im looking for new ideas and concept for my personal thought. Share with friends someting from my brain and my lens. And i think photography concept will be nice.

Im searcing serenity, peachfull life. No rush and i think i found one.. Langkawi. The green color of its paddyfield. The sound of the birds chirping around every morning and even the voice of my neighbour shoouting to her sons to behave well make me smile everyday. Soo good..

For anybody who read this please dont bother with my broken and terrible english.. just sharing..
