Storm in Penang

As I was heading for home yesterday evening after work, I noticed that there were many trees which had been uprooted. I saw one that fell short of a row of parked cars too. I couldn’t imagine what would have happened if a car had been parked there when the tree fell! There were branches strewn everywhere. This was the aftermath of a freak storm which lashed out at Penang yesterday afternoon. When the storm happened, I was having my lunch of pathetic economy rice in my company cafeteria and was oblivious to the havoc that was being wreaked outside. However, I could see the wind blowing rather strongly and the trees were swaying too violently for my liking. I didn’t think much of it till this morning, when I heard over the radio what a catastrophe the storm had caused. And I think that’s the reason why the doormat outside my apartment was overturned too.

    No la.. it stormed after lunch time. Went to my “second home” (QB la) for lunch and it was only drizzling when we reached the carpark.

    Every time it rains in KL I worry whether or not it will flood, be it big storm or little drizzle. But the weather is really freaky nowadays… there’s even hailstorm in Malaysia!

    *thinks about that movie (the name slipped my mind!) with Jake Gyllenhall and Emmy Rossum*

    The Giddy Tiger says: Oh, The Day After Tomorrow! I didn’t get to see this show though…
