Continuing with my infatuation on the lilac coloured bracts of the wild banana, I have today decided to accentuate the uprightness of the terminal spike by combining it with the long straight leaves of the fragrant 'pandan' ( Pandanus amaryllifolius). For many Malay ladies the leaves of the fragrant pandan are used in flavourings and also placed in some corners of the kitchen to get rid of unpleasant smell.
