They don't remind me of anything really. (except clouds! haha) It is just that the colours are striking...

Reminds me of Cloud Pie, but I think I prefer Lormaikai Pie still, no question about it.

Ingredients:

Put everything in a kettle. Strike match. Light flame. Wait to boil. Meanwhile, go outside, and take a picture of the sky. Hopefully it is cloudy.

The clouds are beautiful though.

I used to be able to view purple sunsets from my home. That was years ago...

sbanboy said...

Cotton candy is my favorite

Chen said...

chuang sc,
purple sunset? That is something that we hardly get to see :) I'm sure that is a nice scene to look at..

sbanboy,
mmmm... sounds like you have lotsa favourites. I still remember eating the white-coloured & pink-coloured cotton candy during my primary school time.. I think it costed 20 cents per packet.. The cotton candy was sealed in the transparent plastic bag :)

Selba said...

I like Cloud... it gives a calm feeling...

:)

Chen said...

selba,
good lah u..
take a piece of paper to copy down the cute little poem by Selba :D

Thao said...

MMM, popcorn is much nicer in Asia than elsewhere (at least for me, so far);-)

In Belgium, popcorn is often sold in cinema, and to be honest, I don't like them

slurp! said...

hahaha ... perhaps it already float else where already. i read that when rains clouds are accumulating water, it starts to expand higher. only when it's too dense & heavier, it will turn dark and then followed by rain :P

Chen said...

thao,
oh? popcorn taste differently in Belgium? :P I dunno about that :)

slurp,
hehehe..no lah.. the cloud was still around much later.. the cloud didn't float away, cos I took several sequelae of the cloud photos. From my observation in the past, most clouds change in shape within seconds.. every few minutes, I can see the cloud with different appearance. I know it's the same cloud cos it's located exactly at the same position.

I have a huge collection of cloud photos - several hundreds or near to a thousand. Hahah, will continue to add on my collection :)

Alina Chau said...

LOL!! Great photos, I can eat the cloud photo!!

Chen said...

alina,
Thanks :) The cloud is nice to chew, but need to in add some flavouring to make it taste nicer :D

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

You really do get all hues of colours in the evenings. It was fantastic then.

Gasman said...

Chen said...

chuang sc,
Thanks :)

gasman,
LOL.. your bean bag must be something very cosy & comfortable to sit on then ;) just like the clouds ;)
