Bunga Telang

I was so excited when I saw this flower at my mother neighbourhood.Do anybody know the name of this flower in English?.As for Malay it's called Bunga Telang.
Usually,we used Bunga Telang to make Kuih like Tatal and Pulut Inti

Don't mistaken this little blue flower for Morning Glory
This little blue Bunga Telang is pretty strong in color and editable.We can dry up and keep for use whenever we want.Too bad,it's won't grow in NY!!
