Malaysian Lipstick

Picture of the moment is a weekly series exhibiting pictures, through which I show you a bit of my world.

Malaysian Lipstick is also called as Lipstick palm or sealing wax.

Two years back I saw it for the first time in Seremban, Malaysia and immediately fell in love with it. I marveled at the bold red color that had overshadowed the typical greens. The rustling sound of its leaves had caught my attention and I so wanted to possess one.
I stopped and yes, you guessed it right. I clicked pictures. 😀

Well, I couldn’t imagine a bamboo tree like that! It was much later (on my recent visit) that I was corrected, they are NOT bamboo trees but palm !

Unless you go down under, you can not realize how fascinating the underwater world is. The attraction of those amazing colors, the wonderful living things and the feel of being at sea bed makes you want to spend more time there… even if your oxygen cylinder indicates the opposite. 😀

While strolling on the roads of Siem Reap, it is a common sight to see beef and other animals being barbecued for your dinner. You can eat there itself or get it packed for home.

The Pagsanjan waterfall in Laguna Bay area in Philippines is protected by environment department. All the boats that go there have to pay a tax. And what better way to keep a tab on their traffic than to have a floating office ?
