The rough-glazed #dragonpot with green lava spilling over from the 60's was originally a #waterjar for the bathroom or kitchen, a typical feature of the Peranakan household (dad's mum was Nonya).

Dragon motifs are not uncommon in the region. The malevolent fire-spewing winged beasts of the West -which I'm more acquainted with from my cartoon and gamebook days of yore- are often depicted as hoarders of shiny treasure, scourge of the land, terrifying creatures Aegon I Targaryen rode to conquer the Seven Kingdoms (and men quake in their little Westerosi boots).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Eastern wingless serpentine 🐉 is the antithesis of all that: a symbol for the power of good, of benevolence, adopted and exploited by the Imperial court; here embossed on the pot, it is depicted chasing after a flaming #pearlofwisdom, the greatest treasure of all— Enlightenment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Growing up, my dad often tells us of his dreams of these great mythical creatures, slithering high above the clouds bearing portents. I myself have never ever had a single dream of dragons. No #finfangfoom, not even Puff.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some notable exceptions to traditional depictions: Three-headed #kingghidorah looks to be of Slavic origins; the dragon in #neverendingstory is Oriental (*some say it's but a fluffy dog); a #wyvern just can't decide which it wants to be. • #dragonpotpond / #mexicanswordplant #javafern #hornwort #christmasmoss (submerged)

What I really enjoy about the dragon pot pond is that I DON'T get to see every critter do every critter thing under glass and florescent surveillance 24-7, which makes my squatting and chance-sighting akin to spotting them in the wild. Even snails need to slow down sometimes.

Sering kau merasa adamu tak penting belaka di semesta ini. Setidaknya pikirkanlah ada satu dari seribu orang yang berusaha menjadikanmu pusat bahagianya.

Karena tak ada yang percuma Ia jadikan. .
