Fervor 2

How creative can people be in showing their patriotism? Some will overdo it while some are creative yet not that over the top.
We were staying at a hotel in Cherating over the weekend and saw a different kind of raising the flags as opposed to the cab driver in our previous entry.

Flags that wrap around and four hanging lines. Just nice, I think.
What I love most is that handsome specimen of staghorn fern (Platycerium nidus). Lovely! Can we grow that at home, Mama?
The bird's nest fern (Asplenium nidus) is equally handsome...I didn't see any birdies there though.
Nicole's 2-cent: I think Mama and Dad should invest in a motor home instead of staying at hotel rooms that are only used for very very short sleeping hours. I didn't even get to use the pool or go to beach that I could clearly see from the room. purrrr *giggles*

Definitely more subtle than the taxi! I do like a bit of patriotism though, it's nice to be proud of where you're from =^..^=

Kitcaboodles,
Certainly more subtle than the taxi! purrrr *giggles*

One of those American Winnebagoes would do it, Nicole. Very subtle >^,,^<

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Caro,
Just one large flag will do, I think. Oh well....there are people giving out flags for free... purrr *giggles*

Brad said...

Is this an everyday presentation or a certain celebration ?
Anyway, it is indeed patriotic :)

Hie Brad,
Thank God this is a once a year thing. It's because of the Independence Month (16/08 - 16/09). Motor home sounds good but we have no place to park in the condo complex. purrr *giggles*

The flag arrangement looks nice! I like they are wrapped around.

I would prefer one good flag that we could display and then keep. Not being wasteful and we would fly the flag with more dignity too. I love your giggles, but I miss your evil laughs too:)

Aunty Pi,
Angelina ngan Brad tu kan PADI - pendatang asing dengan izin. Bukannya PATI tau! purrrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Motor home with pool? Does it exist? purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Island Cats,
Aren't they lovely? Wish we have them at home too. purrrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

It's a pawesome idea but where do we park when not in use? purrrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Hi Cat, I love those ferns. Used to have 2 old days, got them from the jungle.
Good photography. You took the pics?
Hey, thought in Down Under, how come now ada atas?
And in Cherating too.

Love that place....beach very nice. Used to fish the river nearby for udangs.
Have fun....maybe you sneak in an Ausie flag somewhere, puzzle them, ha ha.
Lee.

Uncle Lee,
Mama cut short her contract. Too much office politics Down Under. Now back in northern hemisphere for good, we hope. Most pix in this blog taken by Mama, sometimes Dad. With whatever camera in hand. Oh yeah...Cherating is still there, must bring Mrs Lee to visit, ok? purrrrr *giggles*

My people have a little old motorhome and I LOVE to go camping all over with them in it.

Wan Sharif said...

mm... I am sure I have to update my biology or general knowledge for that matter.. now that I came to know few cats that like to use the swimming pool... for what purpose if I may asked ..*giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Oskar dear,
Thing is, we don't have caravan parks in this country. Wish we can travel like you. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Ayoh Wang,
Lama hilang wei... You don't know of swimming cats? Now you do. We're also water proof, you know. purrrrr *giggles*

Sandy said...

I bet they were inspired by hanging clothesline haha :D motorhome ? I find that idea scary :( , at least in Indonesia it might be scary, there could be robbers at night ya know, I don't think I'd be able to sleep well !

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
Still better than the taxi. purrrrr *giggles*
