Of flood concerns to some, and draught concerns to others

Right now, the country is facing a crisis of massive floodwaters creating hardship to thousands of residents, in particular those residing in the states of Johor and Sabah.

So today's news item about the Selangor MB warning of dry times ahead and taking steps to overcome the expected dry spell from February to August is rather peculiar, given the timing of his advice to residents of this developed state to "... start conserving water". (The Star, N10 today)

Maybe it's just me.

Malaysia is located at tropical zon, and the weather in tropical area can changed very dramatically. This is like a cycle, after wet will be dry. Anyway, I think el-nino it's going to be over, get prepare for more flood or nature disaster maybe la.

Actually Kenny, I'm not doubting Mr T's words but I'm just wondering whether it's the right thing to say at this moment when so many others are wet to their knees.

Similarly, I'm also wondering how appropriate it is for Pak Lah to hold a celebration using a boatful of durians - seems like mockery of the most distasteful kind to me to the southerners.

Yeah - we should all brace ourselves for climatic changes, brought on probably by global warming?? Thanks for dropping by, Kenny!
