突破

2007年,因走在湿滑的草地而滑倒,引致脚踝受伤,痊愈后,我对湿滑的游泳池就有了戒心。另一方面,由于身形变胖,穿上泳装,显得很难看,所以只在2008年游过一次泳。今天上午,应朋友之邀,鼓起勇气,穿上旧泳装(幸好还挤得进去),去到公寓的泳池游泳。不过,本来只会一点自由式的我,今天竟然没办法泳起来,只在泳池踏水、浸水和让水花按摩(jakuchi)。
游玩泳,回到家里,发现竟然把泳衣留在泳池的冲凉房,没带回家。结果,又倒回去泳池更衣室寻找,幸而好心的管理员已把泳衣整齐的挂在两个钩子上。
啊,我想起来了,当我冲洗好泳衣,就稍微扭干,然后放在一旁的扶手晾着,准备等一下穿好衣服,就装进袋子,结果竟然忘了带走。呵呵!真是老糊涂!
不过,我今天终于克服了对泳池的恐惧心理,也算得上是生活中的一种突破吧!

新加坡西部下冰雹暴雨


今天下午新加坡西部下冰雹暴雨。




The hailstorm which hit certain parts of western Singapore is not toxic, a National Environment Agency (NEA) spokesman assured in a media conference.

The agency added that hail is caused by supercooled water droplets freezing on contact with particles in the air, such as dust, during a thunderstorm, and PM2.5 and PM10 are only hazardous when inhaled. NEA was unable to confirm if the hailstorm was brought about by the haze.

The last reported hailstorm in Singapore took place about five years ago, on 27 March 2008.

Residents in western Singapore reported seeing hail falling from the skies at about 3pm on Tuesday.
Heavy rain, accompanied by gusty winds, started around 3pm in areas including Jurong and Bukit Batok – a welcome respite for Singaporeans who only recently endured over a week of record-breaking haze caused by forest fires in Indonesia.
Musician Laura Tang, 24, was near West Coast Park when she noticed the hail.
"The wind suddenly turned very cold, and these crystal-like stones started raining down," she said.
"It was very frightening. I could not believe my eyes," she added.
Ms Caydence Woo, 24, said the substance felt like "very sharp droplets that were a little prickly, like sand, when it landed on my hand".
The banking executive was on her way to Clementi Mall when she noticed the sound of droplets bouncing off her umbrella was exceptionally loud, and decided to put her hand out to feel them.

“The droplets also looked weird. They were coming down in straight, solid lines, instead of one by one,” she said.

Marketing manager Edwin Yao, 30, also experienced the hail storm.

He was in a taxi at the Bukit Timah nature reserve area when he noticed “ice” hitting the taxi and the surrounding vehicles. He described the hail to be roughly the size of a 50-cent coin.

This continued for the next five to 10 minutes, he said. He did not notice any damage to vehicles.

Wynfred Wong, a 13-year-old student, also saw a strange sight of “string-like” rain out of her window in Jurong East. She decided to make her way downstairs to get a closer look.

The droplets looked solid when they were coming down, but melted into water the moment she touched them, she said.

The ground where the droplets landed had “a lot of bubbles,” she added.

新加坡冰雹暴雨

下雨啦!

下午四时许,天昏地暗的,不久就下起雨来了。只是雨势不是很大,而且只下了一阵,不过,这也聊胜于无。
感谢主!
求主继续赐甘霖于新加坡的干旱土地,并驱走烟霾。也求主继续浇熄印尼林火,赐甘霖于马来西亚,驱走烟霾。求主让地上掌权者有聪明智慧,能够为环保尽心尽力,让人民生活在健康的环境中。阿门!

免费新鲜空气?

看到这则广告,觉得很搞笑。槟城的空气,会新鲜吗?


烟霾中的白头翁

今早醒来,推开窗口,发现有一只白头翁正站在棕榈树上歇息。今早的空气还算是良好水平。

昨晚(PSI 为 75)的月亮,看来还相当明亮,但拍出来的月亮,却是朦朦胧胧的。
