Just as I went on with my usual weekend path, I noticed the flowers that thrive in this part of the world all year round. I decided to take few snaps just to let you know that there are actually flowers in the desert. 🙂 I remember some of the reactions in my earlier posts that they never imagined that UAE is (can be) beautiful. Don’t worry, I had the same perception before coming here.
These flowers are normally intercropped (planted together) near the offices.
I don’t know though how they’re called. If you asked me when I was still in highschool, I could probably respond right away with scientific names provided. No kidding. Biology was one of my favorite subjects then aside from Chemistry. Ack, did I actually say Chemistry? It turned out I’m in an unrelated field.
Talking about scientific names, I had an unforgettable-even-if-I-want-to-forget experience about them. In one of our assessments, I was confident that I provided correctly the scientific names for all 100 items. Only to find out that I’m bokya (zero score). My late grandmother who patiently waits for my quizzes’ results wondered what went wrong. “I forgot to underline each scientific word.” That’s my biggest biology sin. I cried hard because of that. Haha. Until our reunion in 2006, some of my classmates still remember that. Pero ngayon tinatawanan ko na lang sya. Since then, I learned to become more technically careful.
Have a great week. Just laugh out your worries. 🙂
