People here in Malaysia like it when it rains, coz it brings (slightly) cooler weather. Fair enough, I suppose you guys never get any other break from the heat. But I hate it. Coz I just hate rain, no matter where no matter when. Just enough to avoid drought in Melbourne is OK, and preferably Australia can rain as much as it wants when I'm in Malaysia, perfect!
Generally, here in KL when it rains it storms. And it extra sucks here coz so many things are outside reliant:
- Can't go out and eat hawker/mamak foods
- Can't go pasar malam.
- It's extra humid and sticky
- Random road floods = traffic chaos
- Lightning striking and blowing up my modem/computer
One of the better parts of all the storms KL has though is that the traffic lights around my neighbourhood often go out. No traffic lights = much better traffic flow! It's not like people particularly obey them anyway, so it's just extra confusing whether people are gunna cut you off or not. At least when the traffic lights are down, people just go for it but are somewhat cautious. Everyone gets through faster, dead traffic lights FTW!
Anyhow, I have an awesome and exciting weekend planned, but I won't tell you why 'till after. I'll leave you with a couple of great photos I captured this past week that I really love. Both were snapped by sheer luck, right place, right time, when I usually wouldn't have my camera with me.
