Peria Katak?

Peria katak plants are not doing so well this time. They fruit less and their sizes are smaller. Due to the haze problem, I have reduced the frequency to go out to look and check on my plants. 

Sometimes the peria katak is over ripe and become “peria bunting”…haha…Am I using the correct term?

Beside this peria katak, I found another smaller type of peria katak growing in kampung. It is just about half the size of our thumb. Not sure they are bitterer than the peria katak above or not. They are still in my fridge now. Any idea what is the name of this type of bitter gourd?
Interested with the seeds, you may find it here  =)

Purple Ice Plant

I really thought i had bought rose jepun yang sangat rare. So i happily share this "rare rose jepun" to rose jepun group in facebook. 

 A lot friend came over to enjoy its beauty by clicking "Like" button in facebook. Suddenly one of the Otai came and enlighten me, thanks to her, Now i know this is really a RARE flower plant. 

This is not rose jepun at all. This is called Ice Plant! Wow, what a beautiful name! 

According to Wiki, Ice plant is known as stone plants or carpet weeds in California coast. It is a drought-resistant plant that work as colorful ground cover!
Something new to me at least =)
