Magnolia champaca botanical drawing

Let blessings fall around you like blossoms ~ Rumi

Quick sketch in between puppy duties. I’m fostering a couple of puppies for a few months.

Another native fragrant flower mostly grown in temples and gardens because they are believed to bring wealth to the family. The plant is also used as natural anticipectic and anti inflammatory.

Ylang ylang botanical drawing

Today feels like it’s been played out in slow motion from over exerting myself yesterday with the excitement of all the different workouts I discovered on ClassPass.com which just launched in Penang, but I didn’t forget to sketch 😂🤣

Sketch of the day no 1268 in my moleskine sketchbook is of ylang ylang plant.

Sketch of the day no 1267 in my moleskine sketchbook is of a pomegranate flower and fruit.

I thought this was an important symbol in Chinese culture but turns out everyone loves it too ❤️

Midnight horror botanical drawing

Midnight horror botanical drawing

I simply love the name of this tree. I think the name comes from the silhouette of the tree but I could be wrong 🤔

Sketch of the day no 1266 in my moleskine sketchbook is of the midnight horror flower and pod.

These trees are fairly common in Penang. They are easy to spot as well because they are tall and you can see the hanging pods from far.

Coral tree botanical drawing

Coral tree

It’s been a haze free weekend and I’m grateful for the fresh air. It doesn’t mean the forest fires from plantation clearing have stopped, it just means the wind direction has changed. Trees and nature should be protected and respected.
There are many heritage trees in Penang which I love and here’s one of them that is found in both the old and new worlds.

The air quality in Penang, Malaysia is at dangerous high levels right now. The open fires in the region is causing the country to be covered in a layer of smog. Slash and burn methods used by roque plantations should be banned!

Preserve the forest and Plant trees instead of cutting them down 🌳🔥😷

Kitchen Qing : Crane rice bowl

Crane rice bowl lid

Kitchen Qing: blue and white porcelain used for simple meals.
Steamed rice is a staple food in Chinese culture especially for the Southern Chinese who migrated to South East Asia in the 18th and 19th century because of civil wars, hardship and starvation.
The free trade between imperial China and Malaya under the British empire attracted many Chinese to move there as labourers.
