Survives in the morn

    1. Thank you Tarun. I find the best way to write Haiku is to follow the rules. And hopefully it works out well.

    1. Dear Barbara,
      The shivering tree - a sign of weakness? Or resolve?
      Thank you for dropping by.

    2. Hi MamaTim,

    3. yep, my adolescent chilli plants! U asking, errr... my D40 U mean? I'm supposed to polish some basic(!) skills> follow a group of friends when they go photo-shooting, but never getting the chance. Always something else on, especially now during this long school break. Also re-opening an online store (I had an approx 10mth break from this sales business and now 2 of my cousins have joined me in sourcing some materials for the online store Alhamdulillah)- well this too has claimed more of my time though I've always meant to do it just casually.. SO! inilah mamaTim. My Lalliiing always telling me 'semua nak buat!' LOL
