feeling blue

Colours can affect a person's well being & people's moods.

Blue for instance is associated with sadness or issit calm, like the serene absolutely gorgeous blue sea ( think Pulau Redang ) or how about blue skies ( & everything nice) ?

Except this mysterious beautiful small creepy flower , known variously as bunga telang, blue pea or even clitoria ( goodness !) ...is no blue porn at all we tell ya & might even be eerily creeping free in the backyard behind your friend's house !


Or in dry form in small quantities in the Kota Baru ( Kelantan) Market , where the women rule... and salad is Queen.

Here multi-award winner Kelantanese Cuisine rules supreme , with the inimitable nasi ulam ( salad rice ) leading the pack...& omg ! where this Blue Rice Wonder below originated from .

Today after a meal of this bunga telanged ( clitoria flowered ) bluesome buddies of salted egg , dry beef , coconut floss with something pungent, raw bean sprouts, more greenies and a hot , sweet & sour aftertaste , we are feeling good.

delightful nasi kerabu ( blue rice )... from a few Ringgit only
any backStreet , after 7am before 8 pm
Malaysia
