Happy Chinese New Year 2012

Happy Chinese New Year!
It is the Year of the Water Dragon. Wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year. Due to work and many things cropping up, I have many post that I need to work on before posting. So let me post this first before going back to work on the rest. Hope the Year of the Water Dragon brings you lots of joy and happiness, money and success, and may all your wishes come true.

Fireworks from the next road, before it rained heavily on the first day of CNY.

I am looking forward to getting some joss paper and folding it for the Jade Emperor's Birthday which falls on the 9th day of Chinese New Year (the celebration starts from the night of the 8th day).

And here's some Nepenthes ampullaria pics from my hometown. Three types are shown here: a green one, a red patchy one from Gunung Ledang and BE's Brunei Red (BE 3285 = William Red x harlequin) from Fauzi. Unlike my Christmas stocking, there were no gifts nor money inside the monkey cups, just dead insects...

Nepenthes ampullaria 'Gunung Ledang'. It is growing from a plastic container that I had used to strike it.
