Singapore is much safer and has generally much cleaner air than the cities surrounding us and for that I am grateful. It also has my home sweet home, my stuff and my own bed etc. Travel itself is such a … Continue reading
We’ve been having quick but severe thunderstorms. I don’t mind them as long as I’m not outdoors caught in one. Even a regular umbrella won’t stop you from getting soaked waist down. You need a huge one in our showers. … Continue reading
I say supposed to be, as we don’t really have the 4 seasons in Singapore apart from the monsoon seasons. Technically we are in the northern hemisphere, but so close to the equator that our days and nights are evenly … Continue reading
Rain is most welcome. Been the hottest March. 34 degrees at Noon. Actually rain in my book is always welcome.
Braved the punishing heat in Chinatown to soak in more of the Goat Year festivities. Saw this pretty display of flowery goats in the bazaar amongst other things like vendors calling out for you to buy their candies or groundnuts. … Continue reading
The only time I experienced hail was for 5 minutes in London. It was tremendously exciting. Wish I could have been in the western part of Singapore to see the hail. I thought it was due to cloud seeding but … Continue reading
The area in front of Central looks so different when it rains. The river got so muddy but our thunderstorms always calm me.
It seems quite coincidental that it’s been raining so much this Chinese New Year and it also happens to be the year of the water snake.
The blinding glare of the sun and the heat combined to give me a splitting headache, but the abundance of light made for great photos. I was wondering how the tourists from cold climates could bear this. I must prefer … Continue reading
Singapore’s weather can be so wonderfully weird. Sunny in the foreground and dark threatening clouds on the horizon, not too far away. Don’t think I quite captured how contrasting it was.
I talk about this Bath Mat and it triggers a long, kinda weirdly related rant about the weather. You can read it here.
Sometimes the sky in Singapore can look really interesting when you can see that it’s raining a distance away but in the foreground it’s still scorching.
It’s typically hot and windy during Chinese New Year. But I welcome the short downpours that come and provide much needed relief. The Tamil harvest festival (Ponggal) coincides during this period and was celebrated on Sunday although it’s not a … Continue reading
Just another day, when the sky happens to be pretty darn awesome.
Even during our rainy months we’re never short of blue skies. Only realized this after experiencing a Northern European winter where the sun is completely blocked out by a blanket of clouds. That was cool too. Especially the no heat … Continue reading
I love experiencing new things. Took advantage of the low season and went to Scandinavia during a period no one wants to go there. Basically it’s mostly dark and grey with just 6 hours of daylight from about 9am to … Continue reading
Wonderfully scary shades of grey, as the thunderstorm looms above. I guess we are moving away from it as you can see how clear the sky still is, far ahead. But we didn’t quite make it. Not that we were … Continue reading
It’s been an unusual October with days of scorching sun. Feels like your skin could peel right off. So glad it’s pouring down right now. What relief.
It just rained and rained all night and I can finally see blue skies again. Missed you, blue skies. Missed you, sweet scented air I can breathe. Well I don’t know about sweet scented yet, but we’ll get there as … Continue reading
