Gardening Hiccups

Someone's been munching Mama's pandanus plant. Help me find the culprit.
Aha! Is this the criminal? Let's zoom in and see who it is.
Hahaha...It's Michael!!! He's trying to hide behind the kaffir lime plant.
In the meantime, Nikki has decided to snoopervise the herbs. Just look, OK? Don't munch.
Brad says: Pandanus is an aromatic plant and is used widely as a natural colouring and flavouring in Malay cuisine. It is sometimes used to flavour rice dishes too. I guess it's a nice a change to have pandan breath as opposed to sardine or tuna breath. har har har *evil laughs*

Aunty Carolyn,

Muka selamba je...ke muka seposen...hehehe...

Pi Bani said...

Suruh mama tanam sireh lah! Then get Michael to kunyah daun sireh pulak... merah je mulut dia nanti... ;-)

Amanda said...

Pandanus sounds delicious! We don't blame your for sneaking a little nibble! Yum! :)

Cat-from-Sydney said...

MKG dear,
Muka tak makan saman! har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pi,
Kenalah tanam pinang dengan gambir pulak. Tak muat pasu tu. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Amanda dear,
It has a nice aroma, akin to vanilla but sweeter. As we said, better pandan breath than tuna breath perhaps. har har har *evil laughs*

So, does it smell nice coming back up? hee hee hee!

Tamago said...

Heh heh, Michael trying to "hide" behind the plant is obviously not working :-) I wonder if pandanus plant tastes good for kitties. Or maybe it has an interesting texture?
Anyway his breath must smell nice :-)

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Katnip Lounger,
It's still yucky! har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tamago-san,
Michael won't let me come near him for me to smell his breath though. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

ChaCha & his catlings

Cat-from-Sydney said...

ChaCha,
I knew it. You only have eyes for Nikki, eh? har har har *evil laughs*

Pat said...

I used to have nice ferns and other plants in my patio - until Jolie and Toffee decided that they were delicious :(

They've had to be moved out into the garden, out of their reach.

Tell your mama I so know how she feels!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pat,
When were Down Under, we only concentrated on the catgrass and the lemongrass. My family members here are not discerning. They munch everything in sight. Terrible, eh? har har har *evil laughs*

Au and Target said...

We're sure this was a frame up! It was the dog next door...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Au & Target,
Nope. The people next door (and their dog) has moved out. har har har *evil laughs*

Sandy said...

Whoaaa I didn't know cats like pandan leaves, maybe there should be a research if we can replace catnips with pandan leaves, hmm... this is new.. or maybe it only happens because Michael simply munches on everything ?

family of fur said...

hehe.. abes pokok uma da kene mkn.. babab muntut dorg..degil nih..hehehe..

Michael wants to let you know that he is switching to a vegetarian diet! I have tasted some pandan leaves before, as a child, because it smelt sweet. I didn't realise something so fragrant can taste so bitter! Michael must have a really high tolerance for bitter stuff!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
I don't like it but Michael, Nikki and Nicole seem to like it. So far, the lime tree, basil, pepperomia and rosemary are safe. It's only the pandan they attack. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

FOF,
Memang degil. Tak makan saman. har har har *evil laughs*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
Michael is quite fussy when it comes to kibbles but not so with plants, eh? He's weird. har har har *evil laughs*

Shaz Alina said...

Ni mesti kes mulut Michael mucuk ni... sbb tu dia kunyah daun pandan bagi wangi... ekekeke~

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Shaz,
Har har har! Memang Michael bucuk! har har har *evil laughs*

Clooney said...

Oh oh. Well I guess the culprit was caught on camera! Brad, if I sent your Mama my catnip seeds, you'd have to snoopervise Michael...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Don't worry Cloon. I'll nip Michael's desire in the bud...so he won't nick the nip seeds. har har har *evil laughs*

masterwordsmith said...

Lovely pics!!! Amazing how you guys can take such fantastic shots!
