My trip or trips to the CNY stalls in Kingsway must have one certain destination : the floral stalls. For the last few years this lady stall owner has been promoting her Taiwan flowers. Her orchids are very special so I visit her a few times before CNY as the Malays say "wash the eyes" or cuci mata - which actually means "feasting the eyes". I would really like to spend quality time with these plants.
Kamquats are losing their appeal now. In the past some kamquats sold for RM150...
These are Mutan - most popular CNY flowers. Mutans are found in China only.
Here's another species of mu tan. Small and pretty.
Here's a growing pussy willow with lots of leaves. The pussy willows have flowered although many of the buds are still tightly wrapped up.
The vendor call this Slipper Orchid. Very rare and very expensive at RM250 per small pot.
The stall owner's son has become quite learned in plants!
Lucky Bamboo - prices have gone down to RM2.50 each. They used to be RM10.00 each a few years ago....
No I am happy taking photographs of them. Did not buy anything today. Chinese New Year Eve is on Saturday - two days away....
