Whoa!

If you have been stalking me since my modblog days, you would have known that I love gardening. Even though I have never had a big garden myself, just a patch of tiny land to plant some taiwan grass on, I really do enjoy them. I couldn't retrieve my old posts on gardening, I only have THIS.

But since coming over here, with a house of cement lawn and such cruel sun, I don't know... nothing seem to work. It doesn't help that sometimes when I go away, I would leave the plant for weeks. Most of my potted plants died on me. Even bunga tahi ayam. How bad can you get? If your bunga tahi ayam dies on you, the only sign you are geting is you are doomed.

And then it flowers. But it's not bunga tahi ayam. Infact I think it is some wild flowers. You know like weeds. Hmmpphh.

I am a beggar. So no choosing for me. I watered them anyway. Better something than nothing. Then came one fateful day, there was a ball like thing coming out somewhere near rhe flower. Upon close inspection, it is almost, nearly, could it be...a tomato?

TOMATO? Whoah! Where did that come from?

Well it is spring now eh?

hehe! bila tangan tu panas, bak kata orang tua2, tanam apa2 pun tak jadik. just like myself. suka hati u ye pokok bunga bertukar jadik pokok tomato. at least u could go and tell others u plant some tomatoes. hehe! myself bela pokok kaktus yang memerlukan less penjagaan and kurang air tu pun tak menjadi. kaktus pun merajuk gak. sedih tu. siap terjun dari tingkat 6. ngan pasu2 sekali. uwahahaha! cantik tomatonya. jeles ni.
