The  handover of power from the British 65 years ago. This hibiscus (national flower) has two colours of our Malaysian flag. 

This speckled donut is much like our multiracial population. We come in different shapes, sizes and colour but we remain united in harmony. And everyone enjoys our National breakfast of coconut rice.

So on this public holiday, I have given myself permission to forget about house chores, exercise and work. 
Merdeka not only means independence, it is also means to be FREE.
And it looks like I am not the only one chillin'. Tecla is a purrfect fit in this bathroom basin.

appears to be catching on here in Malaysia. It was introduced around year 2020 with the use of acrylic paints. This sounds like my kind of creativity as the best art piece I have ever produced was a cross-section of  the hibiscus flower. 
We were at POP by Jaya One last Saturday.  
An array of trendy artisan stalls participate every week end.
The most popular were the cakes, cookies and pastry stalls.  
Malaysia has been bestowed the title of "Sweetest Nation in Asia," but unfortunately not for the sweetest people! The prevalence of diabetes rose from 13.4% in 2015 to 18.3% in 2019, thus we have a ratio of one in five adults with diabetes. 

We also seem to have this craze for candles, the sweeter looking the better of course.  The only candles I have at home are tealights at the altar and they are scentless. 

These candles are lovely to look at but even without lighting them, their aroma is overpowering. Lots of art work at the POP were  eye-catching
but I am not too sure about wearing these beaded rings.
Crotchet flowers for "forever L♥VE.

OH NO, CANDLES as cup cakes, jellies, cream cookies and mini cakes. No wonder diabetes is a public health problem here. 
JOY at the POP
SO was Thory - Dog in a laundry basket.
