Mystery Telang Lady


This has been debated enough on Malaysia Gardener FB page and it’s concluded plants outside your compound is public land, hence, officially and legally what is planted out there cannot be claimed as yours. So this post is not about that.

It’s about the mysterious woman who keeps plucking the telang flowers grown just outside my house. Yes we planted it in public land so not claiming ownership. This lady comes almost every morning to pluck the flowers and it’s a mystery what she does with them. Quite improbable that it is for personal use. What do you think?


My aunt manage to talk to her and ask her what she is doing with so much telang flowers. Her answer: it’s for a sick friend.


Interesting! Does anyone know what sickness does the telang cure. So far I know telang is good for the eyes.


Also please don’t misunderstand that I am angry or disapprove of her taking the telang because we have it in abundance and she doesn’t touch the ones nearest to the house. In fact quite the opposite. My aunt found out from her she lives at Batu 5 which means 5 miles out of town. That’s a lot of effort everyday (at least to me) to collect bunga telang!
