1P100W #2 – Cherry Blossoms


An ex colleague sent me this through Whatsapp earlier today. SheΒ also said: “Lok, you have one more article to write.

This was taken close to her new office. I have to admit, it does look quite pretty, don’t you agree? If you ever feel like seeing some cherry blossoms (sakura) but cannot afford to go to Sapporo for the real deal, you can come to Penang and have a stroll here, at Bayan Lepas FIZ Phase 4.

I actually wanted to tell her: “Nothing new here, there’s some of these near Elit Heights too since few months ago“, but I didn’t.

  1. I think I have seen that type of flowering tree near my office too but not sure if it is the same type. Looks very beautiful those trees and I always have a thing for flowering plants.

    • Hahaha another one that have seen similar. I guess these pink flowered trees are not that special after all!

    • This is because the photo has been rather misleading and left out the other side of the road, where cars are in abundance! πŸ˜€

  2. Wow…a hundred words is really short when you come down to doing it…it’s like 5 sentences and you’re done! I don’t think I can ever write something so short! πŸ˜€

    • Now that I’m into it, I really think it is quite a big challenge. Hopefully I can persevere! πŸ˜€

  3. Wah, yau tit mm kuan (not biasa) to see you write so short, but at the same time, tu kei shue fook (quite comfy) coz can read fast and comment fast, straight to the point.. The toufa looks nice, I believe in toufa, haha.. Dont call me a sanpoh (praying lady), I actually read fengshui stuffs on toufa, put some toys symbolizing my toufa to my direction, and it actually works!!

    • I also believe in toufa, but I don’t put any decorations, because I’m too messy to deal with it. Later put wrong, or the toys become dirty, it might make things worse 😐

  4. Pretty flowers in a row. Nice to look at. I did not realise that 100 words are so few words. Was looking to read more then eh, the end already and saw the word count is already over 100.

  5. This street looks a lot like the street where my old job was in Suzhou πŸ˜€ There were also trees that would bloom with flowers more or less that color, but I don’t think they were cherry blossoms. Not sure what they were.

    • They’re not? Why not just ignore that thought and assume that they are? Then it would feel more exciting to look at them. πŸ˜€

  6. Hey RG! Short post today.. surprising eh… hehehe.. I thought I would have to click “read more” but there isn’t any… then I looked at the banner.. oh yes, a picture says a thousand words..

    • A hundred words! πŸ˜€

      I started this yesterday, you might have to backtrack the post from a day before if you want to know why I do this. πŸ™‚

  7. errrr, no need to go to Penang lah.. over here in KL, we also have these “Malaysian Sakura” to see.. hmmm, and i guess around this time every year too..

    (30 words)

    • Serious?? I must be so jakun that I do not know of this! I always thought I saw something special this year!

      And, you no need to word count also lah, tsk.. πŸ˜€
