Feeling the blues.....

but here's 2 lovely blue things to remind me that not everything's blue!!



technically, i think this is purple! but haha, whatever!

this flower is used to color nonya kuehs (peranakan desserts) to give the a blue hue.... very lovely :)

this flower is known as the blue pea flower or clitoria or in local terms, Bunga Telang. when we move into our own place, i hope to be able to grow them! then, i will have a supply of natural blue food coloring!! yeah!


have u seen the blue kueh kueh before?  here's a link : http://nonya-cooking.webs-sg.com/pulut_tai_tai.html 


i simply love to eat this kueh with kaya (coconut jam) -- it's yummmmiiee!!


i have lived in singapore for so many years and yet, this is the first time i have seen this bird around!! geeezz, i must have moved around with my eyes closed in the past!! LOL.


pity i couldn't catch a closer shot of its beautiful body colors... bright blue hue! love it.
