Sabah - Gaya Street - Sunday Market - Part 2



This is the continuation of the market scene.
These are grass - sold in a patches.



.
Geranium - very much identified as mosquito repellent (exact translation)
.
.
Avacados
.


























.
Love this collection of waterlily, you can just carry it back, the root and all in a plastic bag.
(the rootball is tied in a plastic bag)
.





.
Ahhh.. African violets - lovely
.



.
More bromeliads
.


.
Can you see the plastic bag? (the root ball)
.

.
Varigated Bird Nest Fern
.
.
These known as air plants.
.
.
Wonder if these are Azaleas or Peony?
.
.
A lovely bunch of spider orchids in just a stalk
.


.
I got this one in my garden
.

.
A hot pink alamanda!
.
.
This is a white version
.
.
Another type of air plant
.
.
Orchid
.
.
Red Guava
.
.
Avacado
.


.
Medicinal plants (Mushroom)
.
.
Another medicinal plant
.



.
This one is known as "Sarang Semut" translated as Ant Nest.
I wonder whether they are actually ant rest or a plant that resembles like it.
Again, its a medicinal herb plant.
(more below)
.




.
Some polished seashells.
.












.
Is that a jaw of a shark?
.
.
I got more pictures fully detailed and arranged in my family blog.
I wanted to put all the pictures here but looking at my capacity (80% already occupied)
I doubt I may able to put everything here.
.

  1. Hi James,
    How I envy you being able to shop at this market. I suppose there is no problem taking them back to the mainland?

  2. That's probably azalea. I am attracted to the plant in the sixth picture (the one after the weighing machine). Was the leaf thick?

    Nice sea shells :-D What an interesting market.

  4. That looks like a fun place to go window shopping! So many temptations! I would have certainly walked away with some broms...and an orchid or two. That ant's nest thing looks pretty interesting too.

  5. Barry - One of the Flight protocols forbid taking life plants on board - so, I didn't buy anything to bring back to the mainland.

    Stephanie - Really? I can hardly notice it, I guess its a hoya or a vine plant - If I can remember, it resembles a plant like the jewel orchid.

    Nandita - Most Welcome Nandita,
    you should click on link on (Sabah Holidays).
    You will be amazed at the whole total collection of all the other pictures which I have not uploaded here, the market scene, fish spa, canopy walk, hot springs, etc.

    Floridagirl - really fun but also very hot & humid.. sometimes that really tires a lot.
    Good thing, the passion had overcome the fatigue. (I saw some ants around the ant's nest thing - so, it could be really its nest)

  7. Wow, lots of lovely plants. I would love to get some orchids, and water lily too (only if I have a pond :) Those shells are very pretty, but I bet they are expensive too!

  8. Did you bring home any sea-shells from Sabah, James? They look so lovely!
