Welcome home dragonflies

Dragonfly art in pastel

The dragonflies are back in full force. I wonder where they go to when they are not around the area. Always happy to see them. They really bring me joy.

They bloom during this time of the year and is a symbol of love and romance.

Dusky leaf monkey

The dusky leaf monkey or spectacled langur is indigenous to Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. They are gentle herbivores and spend all their time in the tree tops. The babies are golden in colour when they are born. I’ve been trying to spot these golden babies for many years but I have never seen one this colour. They turn grey, black once they are 6 months old.
I haven’t given up hope. I am always on the look out for the golden babies. This species is on the endangered list so time of the essence but I do hope that they will be saved.

Retro Milo

Who remembers Milo chocolate malt drink? In Malaysia, we have the Milo van. It was the best! Imagine the joy of seeing the Milo van 🚚 outside school on a hot day. I think it’s our equivalent of the Mr Whippy soft ice cream van.
