This is the most beautiful plant in the world! It has no beautiful flower with scented fragrance. It is on a simple plastic pot with a hanger. It just arrived on Friday 18 September 2009. That was a special day "yat fatt", "sure prosper". And when you add 1 to 8, it becomes 9, my favourite number!
This plant is just a wild parasitic "weed", perhaps "implanted" by a "worthless" sparrow while letting go of its bowel. What then can this "worthless" plant be the most beautiful? Ahhh, life is like that! I am the only lucky and honoured one to receive this "priceless" present. That's why this plant is the most beautiful. It was presented to me through the blogosphere, the world of internet. The day Mr Atm came specially to visit my new home. No not the Atm machine. Many of you would know "Atm". "A true Malaysian" who "floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee" in the comments column of a number of popular blogs and web sites.
It was a pleasure and an honour to receive this gift of a plant from Mr Atm. I shall cherish this for the rest of my life. Let the daily health of this plant be the barometer of our friendship. Each morning this plant will greet me with a happy smile when I open the verandah door, each evening the setting sun will cast the shadow of friendship onto my face to wish me good night, and I shall see my friend in my mind, forever happy that I still have a friend , a true friend, a true Malaysian!!
What else shall I wish for? Well, only my friend Atm knows what aches my heart.
Life is like that.
