Go earth, grow roots


This plant is rarely seen nowadays. Actually, there is another type which leaves do not have the tiny leaves.

In Hokkien, we call this plant ‘lok thor, seh kin’ or get on the earth, grow roots. I bet many of you kids have learnt about this in Sains or what they call Science. It is part of the pembiakan but I do not know what they refer in English term because I studied Sains in Bahasa Malaysia. Kimia, Fizik dan Biologi. Osmosis, Simbiotik and not spelt otherwise. Parasit and not parasite.

Sometimes, there are people that we refer as lok thor seh kin too. These could be relatives that leech off your generousity. But if you are poor like me, eheh, then, there is no risk of it. Sometimes, it could be friends who treat your home like yours. Other times, it can mean blog readers who think they own your blog and decide what they like you to post and what they don’t like you to say.

*muahahahar…another mindfucking post from the unpredictable blog*
