A Visit to D-Paradise (Part 2)

We were served refreshing, iced Passion Fruit drink upon arrival at D-Paradise.
Then we started our journey.


Loads of Passion Fruits hung above us beautifully along the walkway.


While others plucked passion fruits to eat, I picked the wrinkled, rotten, moldy ones from the ground.
I am more interested to grow the passion fruit than to eat it.


Many people flocked towards this Surinam Cherry tree, attracted by the bright red fruits.
Unfortunately, it didn't taste as good as it looked.


Since the Surinam Cherry was too sourish to eat, one child fixed a fruit on a cactus plant. Other tourists thought it was a flowering cactus and started snapping photos. I felt obliged to explain, of course.

Below are photos of a cactus garden.






Hey! This is a real red cactus flower. Not a surinam cherry!!! I looked around but there were no one in sight to inform. All the tourists have left without noticing this stunning cactus.


Stay tuned. More photos coming up...

  1. Hey, One! Awesome blog! I love cacti...your photos capture these so well. I think it's funny how the various cacti are crooked...I always think of them straight up! I like the cactus flower...this type of cactus is native to South Florida...very pretty!

  2. Hi Kimberly, I think the cacti are probably crooked because they are looking for the sun. Glad you like them.

  3. That's adorable about the child putting the Surinam cherry onto the spikes of the cactus -- and then the tourists all focusing their cameras on it. I probably would have done the same! It's actually quite pretty. :D

  4. Hi Meredith, Yes, I thought that little boy was adorable and creative. After I took the above photo, others started focusing their cameras on it too without knowing the red blot was only a cherry and not part of the cactus.

  5. wow..
    so many passion fruits.
    And I thought they cannot fruit here in Malaysia.
    Did you manage to see the flower - the passiflora is one the most beautiful flowers.

  6. Hi James,

    Frankly, I wasn't aware that we are able to grow passion fruits before this. I was busy snapping away, picking a few rotten fruits and catching up with the rest of the group. I missed the flowers this time.

  7. Wow, so many cactuses! The purple flowers of the passion fruit are gorgeous and they are very fragrant too. You can find them at The Secret Garden of 1-Utama.
