Our national flower. The hibiscus.
The weather in Penang is sooooo hot these days. The only thing one can do in the afternoons and evenings is hiding in an air-con room for a nap.
The weather is so hot, the grass turned brown. And all the fragile flowers have withered. Only the bunga raya stands tall and proud in the hot sun. The rest? Scattered on the pathways. Waiting to be trampled.
I snapped this photo in the garden of my apartment today. Now I must go back to take a nap in my air-con room and wait for the heat to pass.
