This frangipani tree stands in the corner, just next to my father’s cemetery. It provides a nice shade for us while sitting around there.
When we visited the cemetery a couple of weeks ago on his birthday, the sun shining through between its leaves caught my attention. It just feels so serene in the midst of the morning heat.

On my run around the neighbourhood this morning, I almost stepped on this flower. I can’t help to pick it up as my object today.
Looking at it brings back memory of childhood, when my brothers, my sister and I used to “hunt” for either four petals or six petals frangipani. To be able to find one is considered good luck, as this particular species of frangipani commonly has 5 petals.
I found my last 4 petal frangipani about a couple of years ago in Singapore Botanical Garden, also during my morning run. Maybe I should run more regularly 🙂
