Preparing for Winter

November 19, 2009

Long trench coat, checked! Woolly hand gloves, checked! Scarf, checked! What else, hmm, oh yeah my very very old pair of Dr Martens I used to survive the winter days in UK, checked!

I am preparing for winter. Apparently tomorrow, KL City Center will experience a massive freak winter storm. Well yeah, at least that’s what it says in the email I just received. Better be prepared right? If you don’t trust me, here is the email.

Dear Friends,

I don’t intend to cause alarm but I think I need to share this with everyone. Whether this is a hoax or otherwise; as a precaution, may be good to have some warm clothings on hand and be home early on Friday, 20th November 2009.

Rumours are surfacing about a freak winter storm that is expected to hit the Kuala Lumpur city centre on Friday, 20 November 2009 at around 7pm.

Being near the equator, KL has never experienced such a cold weather phenomenon and residents used to the hot and humid weather are warned to take serious precautions.

Reliable sources think that there are reasons to believe these rumours following some unusual weather-related events that many parts of the world have experienced in recent history.

Those who have never experienced extreme cold weather are advised to stick close to one another for support. I suggest reading this article on How to Survive Being Stranded in Snow and other similar ones you can find easily on the internet.

As I personally know some of these sources, I will send out further notices as we get closer to the anticipated event.

Remember, mark 20 November 2009 in your diaries. In such an occurrence, there is safety in numbers so stay close to one another, especially after office hours!

Stay tuned


Well how true it is. No one will knows, but I also did a look up in the internet and found that according to Meteorological Dept said that we will be experiencing a dip in temperature, but it’s highly unlikely that there will be snow falling down.  So take a guess and we will see if the so called freak winter storm will really happen.

    Haha. I take the honour in saying that it’s not *that* true… just saw from NST that they reported it’s a false alarm.

    Kinda expected that, but my guess the weather will still be a little chilly though.
