No you didn't and in a way I am no expert either. I do it more by just researching.

Thank you ruchats for your suggestion too, it seems very similar,but I have no idea which one it is. Hope someone will be able to get it right.

Hi Jellis, I didn't mean to hurt you in any way. You have definitely got me in the right track. I am just a beginner with IDing plants and I had no idea about Uniondaalensis, Monilaria or Stenophylla, I learned about all of it after you suggested them, thank you so much for that. And after learning about them I thought uniondaalensis would be the right one, that's why I said so.
Thank you ,once again, I got to learn about many new plants through ur suggestion.

That is closer to the Iceplant which is larger especially in the center. Also that is native to Africa not Southeast Asia.

It looks like "Sally-my-handsome" (Carpobrotus acinaciformis) http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showima...

I thought so too but I ran out of time though stenophylla looked good too. But at least I got you on the right track

Its from the Marlothistella family
Possibly the uniondaalensis, Monilaria or stenophylla
