Say it with the flowers - Mong Kok, Flower Market

Say it with the flowers…  

Flower Market, Mong Kok, Hong Kong

Once, a friend told me that the best time to go to Flower Market is before the Chinese New Year.  There will be variety of flowers in gorgeous colors to welcome the new year…  

Look at the interesting fish pots

Coincidentally, another friend invited us to go to go there to look around…

I can tell the shops are ready for the celebration of the Year of the Snake…

Beautiful orchid

Enough words, I will let the flowers speak for themselves...
Tangerines? Oranges? Chinese New Year symbols
Hello Tulips!
Hello Tulips!

Yes, red Tulips
Sparkling Colors! 

Surprisingly, there's apple tree!

The Unique Shapes

Don't they look like chiken feet?

Beautiful exotic shapes

Touch them and they'll wrinkle

Roses are women's favorite!

This is the second time I've seen blue roses...

Roses including blue ones

Here are the first blue roses I had seen in the flower market in District 5, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam...


Variety of Pots...

Cute polkadots: red, yellow and pink

Look at the pots...

Interesting pots

Fresh herbs are available too...


Bunga Sedap Malam (Bahasa Indonesia), it is known as fragrant night flower in English, or Polianthes tuberosa in Latin.

Bunga Sedap Malam

I was surprised to see the pinky Bunga Sedap Malam in Mong Kok. I had only seen white flowers in Indonesia...

If I translate it word by word from Bahasa Indonesia:
Bunga: flower
Sedap: tasty/delicious
Malam: evening

Other than flowers, there's Pacific Coffee nearby the Flower Market and some snack stores too... I couldn't resist taking pic of these yummy cakes!
