Kak Teh said...

asr, thanks and of course you can link my blog. I will be away again so no time to blog.

Ms B, hahaha - that rare tulip is wilting! yes, enjoy yu enjoy lah jugak!

Pi Bani said...

That rare tulip pakai spec itam ka?

Kak Teh said...

Pi Bani, spec hitamlah yang menjadikannya begtu rare!

NanaDJ said...

Amboi Kak Teh,
Envy youlah. Dah tiptoe through the tulips? Teringin sangat, tapi hajat belum sampai lagi.
Anyway, you look cute!Where is AG, busy admiring the rare tulip?
Salam.

Kak Teh said...

nanaDJ, that was hardly tiptoing through the tulips. The song was playing on my mind though...amidst all the work that had tro be done. AG was in London and I was there for work..and am back in London for a few days before I to Paree. Hope to get in a bit of pleasure too. But, it has been enjoyable.

NanaDJ said...

Kak Teh ni city hopping pulak. Wah ke gay Paree? You can always combine work with pleasure... bila nak balik Kay El?

tireless mom said...

Eh eh, the tulip is a tulip muslimah, and alim one too. dia suka pakai tudung.

Kak Teh said...

nanaDJ, nak balik kay el tu sentiasa di kepala. Am looking at mid july as that is the only time left but whether that fits in with my other work - i dont know - must check soon. This assignment came quite suddenly and I have had to shift many things around to be able to do this. Perhaps I will have a proper tip toe through the tulips with AG some time soon..:)

TM, aha, betul jugak. Tulip muslimah..sebab pakai tudung and vogue jugak tu sebab pakai speck hitam! But can tell you that at the end of that trip rasa macam layu tak mahu berkembang!

Naz said...

Eh eh...Ini mesti benih dari 17th century...ambil dari Malaya. Sebab rupanya agak kemelayuan lah...heheh!
I lurve that lentok pose :D

Kak Teh said...

Naz, how right you are,benih tua...err lama dan pasti sekali kemelayuan. Lentok tu tak boleh lama kalau tidak tertomoih dalam kebun tulip! Kalau boleh nak guling2 jugak dalam kebun tu tapi AG tak dak!

D said...

one gorgeous tulip that!!

Zendra said...

Would be perfect for any Selangor team wouldn't they, those tulips?

The rare one only for AG & co. lah.

madam gold said...

Cantiknya tulip2 tu Kak Teh,especially yg pakai spek mata itam...

Pak Zawi said...

Kak Teh,
Will the tulip's season still be there when I reach Europe? I will be photographing the tulips whenever I see them. They are such beautiful flowers. I wonder if that rare tulip will be around in London then.

Naz said...

Kak Teh,
Imagine ya kalau Belanda tak bawa balik benih tu, entah entah kita kat Msia tiap tiap tahun boleh tengok Tulips...hehe!
Kak Teh, golek gelek nanti jangan lupa salin baju 4-5 kali :D

kay_leeda said...

Oooo...hiding behind the tulips rupanya all this while :)

So pretty that rare tulip and pandai posing lagi. Anggun and such a sweetie :)

Enjoy yr hols Kak Teh.

mamasita said...

Cantiknya tuliiippss!! Waaaaah! Boohooo! I nak makan angin ke Holland!!

JoePerantau said...

Salam Kak Teh, lama tak singgah sini, biasanya singgah then baca sekali harung semua entries.

Tengok tulip ajaib nih, teringat filem Kazakhstan, Tulpan (Tulip) yg saya tengok baru nih.

Shahieda said...

Peeka-boo!! I see you, hehehe!

Tulips are such exquisite blooms!! We rarely find them this side of the world & if you do, they normally cost an arm & a leg!!

Kak Teh said...

D,I can count on you for the compliment. After four days vsiting Dutch parks and gardens - am wilting.

Zendra, I missed the one about the selangor team. Fill me in.

I missed the days when I would be with AG on assignments like this. But coming home is something to look forward to as well.

Kak Teh said...

madam gold, kalau tak pakai speck hitam nampak mata mengantuk...tak tidur bermalam2. Sebab tu kena pakai.

Pak Zawi, alas no more tulips then.You've missed the Kuekenhof tulip season and also the Chelsea Flower show in London. But certainly there are other blooms. Oh yes, the rare tulip will be around! :)

Kak Teh said...

Naz, niat nak bergolek2 tu memang ada tapi takut i'd be marched out of the park pulak. Sadly most of the tulips dah terlalu kembang - and that will be it for this season for kuekenhof.

Kay, bukan holiday laa. But at the same time what a rare trip too because we get to see many places free, chaffeur driven as well!

Kak Teh said...

Mamasita, beli lah tiket air asia,come to london,hop over to Liverpool to see your son and from there pun boleh ke Holland.

Joe,memang lama Joe tak singgah di sini. Kak Teh dah nak merajuk! Hope you are okay.


Shahieda, Tulips are indeed expensive.I bought some wooden and glazed ones so they can bloom forever!

Kak Elle said...

the rare tulip not for sale..and money cannot buy it.

always love pictures of colourful tulips.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Salam Kak Teh,

Eleh..i tgk seklai dah nampak! (intonasi org jeles sbb tak dapat nak enjoy the tulips).

Lovely la, Kak Teh..take care.

Andrea Wh@tever said...

Kak Teh, I can't spot the rare tulip but I saw this beautiful rose among the tulips. Heh heh. Busy in times like this is a good problem what? *laughs*

masterwordsmith said...

What a lovely sight to behold! Thanks for sharing...Where was it taken?

Have a lovely day...

Salam.

Kama said...

AMBOI! segaknya! I was about to drop you a line dah, been missing your entries, then I remember you were away footloose & fancy free in Europe.. *sigh..* kat Malaysia panas la Kak teh..

Mama Rock said...

ambooiii, tulip tu lah paling lawa!

Mia's Mom said...

Salam Kak Teh (:-D)!

Truly rare tulip that one! Photos like these make me miss all those travelling days...

Anyway Kak Teh, glad you are having a good time! Take Care! (:-D)

mekyam said...

kt,

sah from a rare bulb that lone tulip. bukan saja colour combo unique, it stands a head taller. ;D

bon voyage au paris!

p.s. jgn lupa bawak vitamins.

Zay said...

Kak Teh, were you there to cover the visit by our Tourism Minister? Sis who is there said a reporter from London will be covering the event and I thought it could be you.
If it was you then you would have met sis.

I just came back from Holland 3rd of May and I travelled via Air Asia and connecting to Amsterdam naik Ezjet. Air Asia is not only cheap but also comfortable..dia punya room leg luas and on time lagi.So I would recommend anyone who wants to
travel cheap naik Air Asia jer.Wah promo lagi..macam ada share pulak.hahaha

Pembaca Setia Kak Teh,

Zay

Chahya said...

Atok said...

Oldstock said...

Salam Kak Teh,

Is this the place they call Keukenhorf in Amsterdam? Rows and rows of tulips of all colours that you can imagine.

The rare tulip in white tudung looks beautiful too.

Fiona1 said...

I love flowers too and these are lovely shots. Was this from the Chelsea Flower Show?

ilene said...

Eh Kak Teh, you are far from being 'layu' lah. Still as bright and colourful as those tulips! Thanks for the pics.

Kak Teh said...

Kak elle, I will be back with more beautiful pictures of French gardens - so wait for the next instalment!

Ida, jels,jangan tak jeles.Kak teh nak siap ke paris pulak n!

Andrea, indeed, busy is good and also I get to see places.

Kak Teh said...

Kak Teh said...

chahya, i cant describe some of the colours of the tulips- you must see it to know that the colours are real - macam painting pulak.

Atok,nanti bolehlah kita buat garden tour di Reading, kan?

Kak Teh said...

Fiona, no, this is Kuekenhof, Holland. This morning was Chelsea but I have given it a miss!Am now dreaming flowers!

Ilene oi, believe me, i dah rasa tersangat layu...hehe! Cant travel as much like before. But am plodding on.
