Rule 101 on chrysanthemum

I din know back in m'sia they use that for praying or something...lol...bad choice..bad choice...

Chrysanthemum

The China Astor, or chrysanthemum indicum, is a symbol of happiness and a life of ease. It is representative of autumn in the symbolism of the four seasons, along with wild plum (winter), peony (spring), and lotus (summer).

The chrysanthemum, also known as the mum, is a flowering perennial plant of the genus Chrysanthemum in the daisy family (Asteraceae).


*In OZ...the flower is meant for mum...or mothers day...

*In M'sia...the flower is used for sembahyang...

*In my dictionary...the flower is used to make tea...

Anyway..mum's still touched...i guess...coz i nv gave her flowers during mothers day b4...muahaha...

Though....5 minutes later...she took up her scissors to snip off the poor flowers' roots...putting them beside the altar(for sembahyang purposes)...XD
