Flowers seen on Good Friday

Good Friday is a laid-back day for me. I went to the wet market not to do marketing but just to walk around and see what other people were up to. We witnessed a quarrel in the carpark between two strangers over scarce parking space that provided some dramatic entertainment for idle bystanders. As tomorrow is the 15th day of the lunar month, many stalls were selling chrysanthemum flowers of different varienties and colours that Buddhist housewives buy to place on their altars at home.Amongst the bucketfuls of flowers I spotted this unusual flower placed at the side of the stall unnoticed by people seeking out only the familiar and that's when my unobtrusive Canon IXUS comes in handy. What flower could this be? Is it a relative of the Chrysanthemum?
