My first Hari Raya Aidilfitri...

May God bless the royal newly-wed..
..over-looking Istana Telipot, the Crown Prince residence..
...KB Mall is somewhere near that yellow condominium...
..bombarded on daily basis by radio waves from that tower..
...rain clouds gave way to blue sky..
..current in/out temperature, 9:30 pm...
..indoor max/min temperature by today...
..outdoor max/min temperature by today..
..emm.... Malaysia after 3 years abroad proved a little bit confusing... The weatherman, since the Northeast Monsoon is around the corner, told me days before that it will be raining non-stop in the East Coast for a whole Hari Raya week but what we got? Nice sunny days with rare blue skies, instead ! I think Malaysian Meteorological Dept. owes me a laugh or to be fair, an explanation will do, whether they are doing serious forecasting or Malaysian climatic changes are hard to predict or they just throwing dices on their weather maps for the day forecast .

Back in Japan, a country with hard-to-predict four seasons plus ocassional typhoons, the weather bureau predicts the country's climatic changes every hour with accuracy up to 80%, if not 100% ! In comparison, I think Malaysian accuracy may well be around 10% or so.. I was driving my car to work on one fine half-cloudy, half-sunny morning when the weather-forecast on radio informed me that it will be raining the whole day, and instead, a fine sunny day it was ! So, to make it short, it was a very nice sunny Hari Raya. The Kelantan crown prince, who currently residing close to my house, held a majestic fireworks display at 3:00 in the morning ! Aku ingat perang kat Iraq dah sampai Malaysia.. he.. he.. he.. I have a slight cough & cold to accompany me this Raya but I managed to visit few friends' & relatives houses ( tak berniat menyebar kuman ). The Crown Prince got married on the 15th Nov with banners portraying the newly-wed royal couple hanging across the state, by the roadsides especially for those stucked in Kota Bharu traffic jams to glance..... and ponder
