Let's have some fun! What flower are you?

When I was admiring the blooming flowers in my garden…





I recalled when I was in my teens, one of my classmates took me to see a fortune teller. He lived in a big bungalow. In his garden, there were all kinds of flowers. The way he would tell your fortune was by the flower you picked in his garden. The flower that I picked was a bright red carnation. He got most of my character right and even got some of my past right. One thing he said about my future that was right was, my husband would be a big man and that I get to travel the globe. At that time, I was thinking, I was so poor and cannot even afford a bus ticket to go to Kuala Lumpur from Ipoh, how would I afford to travel the globe? Honestly, I don’t believe in fortune telling at all. I was there because I was curious. After all, we only paid RM3.00 each.
  
Then one day, while I was browsing the web, I accidentally ended up at this website “What flower are you?” and took the quiz and here was the result.

"You are a carnation. You are down to earth and grounded. You tend to be more traditional than trendy. Your confidence gets you through anything. People trust you and are very loyal to you."


What a co-incidence! Believe it or not? LOL! Now click on the link and go take the quiz and find out what flower you are. Have fun.

Well, since I am talking about flowers, I would like to share with you a delicious and beautiful salad with edible flowers that I made for our Christmas in 2010. Click on the photo to get the recipe if you are interested.


This is a plate of butternut squash and edible flowers salad

  3. Veron, where can I buy edible flowers and how can I tell if they are edible? I've always been a huge fan of chefs who use edible flowers as garnishes.

    1. Angie, I wish I could but I am not the fortune teller lah! LOL! Take the quiz and come back and tell me what flower you are. You may not be your favorite flower my dear:D

    2. Angie, if you are a Tulip. Here is the result of the quiz:

      You have a wild, experimental side that craves change.
      You often switch jobs and lovers, always looking for something better.
      But deep down, you're also very well grounded and content.
      And you will come to know that the life you live is already ideal.

  8. This is what it says about me:
    "You are down to earth and grounded.
    You tend to be more traditional than trendy.
    Your confidence gets you through anything.
    People trust you and are very loyal to you."

    You think accurate or not? Wink! Wink!

  9. Haha, pardon me, but accurate meh?
    I have always percieved you as trendy rather than traditional.

    1. Wendy, I guess if you are talking about how I dress and wear my hair, then it is not correct. Thinking wise, I think I am more traditional than trendy.

  29. Good morning Quay Po! I was planning to read this posting last night but then, I was distracted by other posting till I forgot. So this morning, I told my children that I need to visit your blog first b4 we are going to their grandparents house & then, I saw you leaving a message in my blog, haha!

    This is an interesting posting. I thought one can only predicts the future by studying the tea leaves. So looks like it can also be done with the flower. Now I would like to go to check out for mine flower, thanks!
