Ah Mah's Home Magic Plant

Ah Mah's house have many sort of plants.

Here are the Pandan(Screwpine) which she blend to juice for Mamarazzi to make Banh Tet

Lemongrass which is good to make Curry


Mint leaves which is nice to put into my 100Plus drink

Saw a small bush of Bunga Telang too.

Lovely flower ya?

It can be use as food dye. Mamarazzi wish she had them when she was making Nyonya Zhang the other day so that her Nyonyan Zhang didn't turn into Incredible Hulk Zhang.

But what I like the most is that Ah Mah have "magic plant" too.

Here is the magic plant

See what happen when Mamarazzi touched the leaves
 
They will close!




amazing ...

Amazing!

Touch! Touch!

The flower/seed of the magic plant

After awhile, the leaves will open again.

It's awesome!

  3. The magic plant is known as 'Mimosa pudica', Smallkucing. When auntie was younger, auntie likes to play with it too. But careful when you touch it, the plant got tiny thorns.. =D
