Before I lupa, nak tayang some photos of the jacarandas in bloom on the way back from work today. I just love the colour, purple purple everywhere !!!! The whole street was lined with the trees so bila Spring teramatlah cantik nya the view of the street. Speaking of Jacarandas, teringat kat my Dad because when he was here a long time ago, I told him about the name and he said macam nama jawa pulaknya. I was like, "huh?". Then he said, joko in javanese is young male/ teruna and rondo is divorcee/ janda so jacaranda means teruna and mak janda. D'oh? How he came to that connection, don't ask me, hehehehe. The pronunciation is completely different anyway :-). Only my Dad could think of that!
This is nowhere near my house, about 10 minutes away and a completely different suburb pun.
