where I grew, Pantai Remis, Perak
Now, I am back, two weeks earlier than scheduled. One month and a half absence is over. For the moment, I may not be able to write new things about the garden or the adventure I had gone through with Kakdah. I am nursing sore heels and legs and adjusting to the old hot and wet weather. The adjustment will be over in no time I think. I am presenting the memories of the old days for today's post.
Among us, we call these buluh buncit. The more appropriate name is buddha belly bamboo. To be more scientific, lets call these bambusa ventricosa. My late dad went over to Langkawi to visit his youngest brother Pak Su some twenty years ago, and he brought home a bamboo cutting. The bamboo grew ever since. They really look like an army of swollen bellies...
I grew up here, in a place called Pantai Remis. The old house is still there. The bamboo still standing, guarding the old house and the memories..... Notice the white sandy soil?... yea, it took me a while to realise that not all earth is sandy!!
