Hail storm in Singapore - Tuesday, 25 June 2013

Past few days, it was pure heat and haze in the air in Singapore.

Today, it finally rained, and a Hail Storm !
And it happened in the west area of Singapore, the area where i am staying. (But i was in office, and did not witness it with my own eyes.)

However along the way home, i did saw trees of the whole road, actually fell. And in turn, causing a little traffic jam.

I took a picture when i alighted at my bus stop. A block signature was found hanging at the opposite block too !



Anyway, check out the pictures people caught over at Stomp.

What is a hail storm ?
Hail is a form of solid precipitation. It consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, each of which is called a hailstone Sounds like "raining ice" =P

Since the hail storm happened in the west area of Singapore, ( the area where i am staying ), of course the rain and wind was strong.
Believe it or not, Mum called and informed me that my room got kinda flooded as i did not really shut the windows, and "locking" it.

Yes, i took about 2 hours, to shift my study table, and clean... It could have been longer, luckily mum and dad, helped out!

It was a chance to clear the dirty room. HAHA!

Friends in Singapore, did you witness the Hail Storm today? =)

The Haze, back with a vengeance.

Every year, the haze will come back to us. 
The wind blowing towards us... The lack of rain... 

After a few days of breathing in dust, and itchy eyes.. this time around, it got really terrible, with the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) hitting a new record of 400, on 21 Jun 2013.
Anything above 300 is considered, Hazardous.

The following picture, cheered me up a little.



Anyway, forecast for 23 Jun 2013, was predicted to be in the very unhealthy range of 200 to 300.

Got myself a mask (not the better N95) but just to prevent myself from breathing in too much of the unwanted particles.


I think i looked more handsome with half the face covered up. (Haha!)

Let's hope it rains, or the fire in Indonesia gets better.

Meanwhile, to all, tons of water, take care!

Still in Youth Club ?

Few days back, i received a letter from People's Association (PA).

It was a letter of notice, asking me to a Youth Club meeting. My first thought : since when i was in the Youth Club? And at my age, can i still considered a Youth? (HAHA!!)

According to Wikipedia, "Youth Club" refers to a youth social club, a place where young people can meet and participate in activities such as football, soccer, basketball, table tennis, or video games, or religious activities.




It was the first time, in my 20+ years staying in this area, and the very first time i got this invite.

Now the next question: will i get fined if i did not attend? =x

Have you received such letter before ??

Anyway, i should not be attending it, or....
Maybe i should start practicing the YMCA song.....

Oh, Y... M... C... A....
