Colors of Malaysia.

The remnants of a meal we enjoyed in Melaka may not be the most attractive subject for a photo, but when our dishes were piled up I was struck by one of the things I love most about Malaysia: the fantastic, over-the-top color sense that flows throughout the country. From the local architecture to the clashing shades on a kopi’s chopsticks and plates, this is a country that isn’t afraid to clash. And while some shades should seem not to work together, like lime green and electric tangerine, they somehow balance out and get along beautifully. Not a bad symbol for a country as diverse as Malaysia.

OMG! Amazing photos!!! I haven't dropped by in a month or so and I'm loving catching up. You've made me hungry! I also loved Malaysia and haven't given a thought to going back, but now I'm reconsidering. Due to Grantourismo it will have to be 2011 but it's there!

I've just read your past posts on Malaysia including this one. The images and writing captures the essence of Malaysia. You could do a food book on this country with these gorgeous images.

Colours liven up our world ! We can be diverse but like colours, we can blend in and out, become one colour or many other colours. Glad you find beauty in simple things.
