These are some vegetables in the night market in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei
Darussalam. Similar with the ones in Indonesia or Malaysia. As you can see,
some of these vegetables are also easily found in American supermarkets,
such as okra, eggplant, bitter melon, and cucumber.   
This is "daun simpur" or "simpur leaves" the local vegetation in Bangka island.
I found this also in Singapore, but I never see it in Java. The leaves are wide,
as you can see, smooth and very clean. Local people traditionally use it for
wrapping groceries or food. It can also be used to wrap and steam some kind
of cake or snack. Banana leaves also have the same function like daun simpur,
and it is also widely used. In the far background, are coconut trees with their
fruits, which is a very common sight in the island.
