I love fragrant blooms. I started collecting fragrant plants since last year. I started with collecting the 'shui mei' or wrightia religiosa. That was follow by many others such as jasmine, gardenia, susur kelapa (sorry, I don't know its English name) and kerak nasi (vallaris glabra).
Vallaris glabra is my favourite among the fragrant flowers that I have planted. The creeper plant has small, whitish green flowers that produces a strong pandan leaf scent. The fragrant is very prominent in the evening. It is also called bunga kerak nasi. I got it from the pasar malam in Bandar Baru Bangi when I went there for sate Haji Samsuri. A pot cost me RM10 only. The blooms have brought many sensual joy to me! I love visiting my garden in the late nite to enjoy the sweet scent exuding from these fragrant flowers, especially from my bunga kerak nasi.
