    3. Muahahahaha! I love this silly post of the 4 Seasons in Malaysia. This is so true!

      I know that Malaysia might snow or have a permanent yearly cold seasons in future. Don;t have to ask me how I know but just remember that I said this today.

  2. Yeah , how I wish Malaysia has four seasons but then it will be expensive. You needed to buy winter clothes then changed to summer clothes and autumn and spring. Lots of stuffs to buy ... Lol

    Somehow I still prefer the climate here , same all the time and we always go to Cameron or genting for some coolness!

    1. Chris morning, hahaha you're wrong if Malaysia has four seasons. That time winter clothing will be cheaper.

    2. Hey Kurage, what Angeline pointed out is very logic lah dei. Why on earth China, Korea and Taiwan are selling very lovely winter jackets at less than RM50?? I bought so many until I could donate them to Syrian War refugees as an excuse to buy some more! LOL

      Delete
    3. eh...true also la but my point is, we needed to buy different type of clothes for the seasons. For now, or for me, I just buy the same summer clothes and can wear for the entire year...muahahahaha..
      Eh...going to shop for my CNY clothes soon, and that will last a year! heehe...

    4. Cheaper winter clothing actually got have better budget to buy more quantity. Everyday different color for a week.

    5. Yeah , it's so cheap over those winter countries like my recent trip lately to China. Most of my shopping are winter clothing ... Hahahha

    6. If next month our country temperature is going to be like we are in Genting n Cameron. You bring out your winter clothing again. Prepare to wear and post at instag - is cold here in M'sia. How nice was that.

    7. Hahaha... Then I will be worried sick. The worlds climate will be in a mess and Armageddon soon! Anyway, I hope it rains during CNY in Ipoh la else can't stand the heat in Ipoh. It's hotter than JB , probably due to the surrounding hills.

      Delete
    8. Oh yes. I also wish for a cooler climate this CNY. These few days are very hot. Hot Season always during CNY. So let it snow for the firstbof CNY.

  3. Picture A - Malaysia have four seasons meh ? Ok , I have yet to go thru the rest of the pictures. Unless you are referring to the rainy season, the hazy season, the typical summer and .... Err... No more le. Genting not included hor.. Those are highlands! Hahhaha...


    Somehow my friends in HK are envying our weather now. It's so cold and inconvenient over there now with the cold. Some of them never really use the heater for a long time as its not needed for so many years. Now they are scrambling to get heaters like how we scramble to get air purifiers during the hazy season.

    I love the cold winter during my recent China trip but I don't think I like it permanently or for few months. It's kinda troublesome to wear so many layers of clothes and took out. I still prefers my Bermudas snd t shirts or singlets and the babes also wearing lesser ... Muahahhahaha

  4. Picture B - flood season is rainy season la... Same same ... But this affects certain parts of the country only. Anyway , I encountered flooding before and it's really a hell of a time. Power and water cut off and the house is almost inhabitable. And that's your home , not some temp location. The folks who suffered are really poor thing.

    I wonder why it takes so long for the authorities to solve these flooding issues since they have been occurring for years and since we are born. I am sure there are solutions and worse come to worst , build a huge wall near the rivers!!! There should be solutions and not just trying to help and relocate them to halls and schools every year. Imagine your home turns into a pond every year , nobody like it !

    ReplyDelete
  5. Picture C - sigh .. This is the worst season and it's never ending for years since the culprits started burning Mother Nature in the 90s. Finger point here and there and even authorities gave sarcastic remarks. Some say it's your companies who burn their land and etc.
    Again , like the floods , I believe with today's technologies this can be avoided. It's just a matter of whether they want to do it. If the season is coming , perhaps the authorities can patrol the forest and see if there's any burning near their region. And if yes, get resources to catch the culprits and put off the fires before it gets massive. Of course this prevention requires lots of resources to standby but it's better than to started it and activate resources after it occurred to an emergency level. People are suffering and dying due to the haze which are a results of greed and cost savings.

    This a season to wear masks and blast your air cond and air purifiers....and lots of Liang teh.

  6. Picture D - eh... Dengue got season meh ? I thought it's all year round as long as there are breeding grounds nearby. Yeah , dengue is terrifying ! It weakens your immuned system and give you a hell of time like headaches , diarrhea , vomitting, weakness , high fever and etc., and not to be bed ridden for a week. Recovery takes longer times and you gotta refrain from physical activities for a while as the body is still weak.

    Not sure if papaya helps but I heard flower crabs soup helps to improve the immuned system and my sis in law , who got it last year , was taking it. Previously we have the malaria season and now , a new virus called zeki is going on in the mozzies.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Picture E - LOL.. This si funny! Yes , I agreed with you, during festive seasons we have to be extra careful on the roads and be obedient and be good. Buckle up the kids and drive carefully to avoid getting a fine. Hahha...


    However , due to the heightens terrorists threats lately , there seems security guards everywhere in popular places at crowded areas. I think this is a good idea to make sure and prevent any untoward a happenings in our beloved country.

  8. So... we in Malaysia has four seasons too like in the western countries... only different forms of weather... i wanted to laugh at the last one, that one also included.. hahahaa... that is festive season, right? Very correct one, so it seems this is so common in our country! So in order to discourage that, we must be law abiding during this time if not other times... hahaha...

  9. Well put, SK! Hey, what a coincidence. I'm touching on Winter too in my latest post.

    The Zika virus is the latest health scare and to think that ground zero is in Brazil - the land of the Olympics this year. And no vaccine as of now. Oh dear!

    So I'm all for regular fogging to be carried out.

    Good morning!

  10. Picture A: I love countries which have four seasons, but SK said our country also has four seasons. I can only think of rainy season and dry season so far. Lol!

    1. Picture B: Flood season happens every year end. That is rainy season in Taiping, every day also heavy down pour. So far my area is safe from flood. It is the time we can save some electricity bill by reducing the usage of air conditioner in the house.

      Delete
    2. Picture C: Hazy days for a few months that caused so many people suffered from bronchitis and pneumonia. I pity those asthmatic patients in fact. It is so bad for our health, especially Yannie loves to go hiking and swimming out door.

      Delete
    3. Picture D: Dengue season happens especially during prolong hot weather. When no rain for long time, the drains are blocked and the weather is very humid. All these will contribute to dengue season.

      Delete
    4. Picture E: Dear SK, drivers pay their morning respect to police by slowing down and giving full cooperation eh! They slowing down not because of the traffic is badly jam ka? Aiyoyo, kesien those drivers need to travel during festive season, luckily Yannie is not impacted by this roadblock season at all, as Yannie is not travelling to anywhere during festive season. Amitoufo.

    5. In fact, I don't mind rainy season, I only don't like the very dry season that water supply is affected. I hate no water supply day that happened in Taiping last two days.

    6. I also don't mind rainy seasons. It really helps to cool down the climate and after the rain in the afternoon, I can enjoyed a nice breezy run in the evening.

    1. Hazy season no shiok , cannot go out and run and causes cancellation of running events like standard chartered in Kl. if it's too hot , we will be burn while running ... Hahah. Best is after the rain and early morning run.

    2. I spotted one sports shop selling gloves for sports and I asked what sports it is for as it was thin. Not suitable for many sports which needed gloves like gym workout , football, hockey , baseball and etc. the store assistant told me its for running , in cold weather. Wow.. So if you travel to colder places to run a marathon , you gotta put on these special clothing.

      Delete
    3. Now only you know? hahaha

      Anyway, normal gloves works just fine to run in clod weather.

      I've run in cold weather seasons and in marathons already. Wearing a RM5 Daiso glove. :P

  15. How could Malaysia has 4 seasons? Four seasons Hotel ada lor. If to compare the REAL 4 seasons you mentioned: Flood, Haze, Dengue and Roadblock - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter sound so nice to hear right? The green grass is always greener on the other side, don't you agree?

    1. SK you're good to bring up this to blog about. Totally awareness for all of us. Flood is our natural disaster during the monsoon season. Many development has been done such as widen the river, widen the drains but it seems like not much improvement. I think Rakyat also should make the effort not to throw rubbish into the river/drain too. All these rubbish will easily get stuck and may disturb the water from flowing smoothly. Anyone will has the civic minded to take up the rubbish and throw inside the rubbish bin? Not many of us will do that.

      Our rainy seasons are quite heavy compare to the rest of other countries. Certain states are near to the seashore, wind and waves are very wild. Guess this is the nature disaster that hardly to be avoided. If to compared, I prefer to have flood season than hurricanes and tornadoes. I'm very bless to be in Malaysia. If really miss other country 4 seasons then just plan for a holiday there. I gonna miss my Malaysia's Nasi Lemak too.

    2. Haze, weather change drastically this few years. If it is rain, it rains heavily until flood. When it is hot, it is extremely hot weather. During schooling days, we learnt about layers of ozone. Ozone is thinning and etc. All acts are made by mankind. Some act can be forgiven due to lack of space and country needs to develop such as buildings and skyscrapers. Cutting down trees for housing areas. But open burning totally is bad to our weather especially during Haze season. Doesn't all the consequences related to each other. During Haze season totally not good for children and elderly.

    3. Continuing journey from cold and wet flood seasons + hot and haze seasons = Dengue season. Mosquitoes are looking for much cooler place to breed. My dearest mummy got Dengue a few years back, that was very pathetic for me. Her blood platelet is very low. Feverish for a few days. We are wondering whether area around my mum house got Aedes. So far no complain or reports. Maybe my mum has got it and bitten from somewhere else. So far no vaccine to prevent but there are many ways of treatments that we can do. Even if is admitted, Doctor can't do much, usually they wills till give you panadol and nurse to come and check your temperature every4 to 6 hourly.

      Want to know how mum recovered from Dengue?
      1. Juice from papaya leaves - Pounded and squeeze the juice. Do not any drop of water. It is very bitter and it is to cool down our body temperature. By that time, I was so panic, bring my mum admitted to the hospital and I off to find papaya leaves. My friend helped to get it and I took from her. Really thanked her. After my mum recovered, then after that some people said to find the male leaves instead of female ones. How true was that I'm not sure.

      2. Frog legs with bitter gourd essence. Need to double boiled for about 3hrs. Chinese believes that this will helps to cleanse the blood effectively. I found a local chef that can find frog legs and boiled for me. It need to be boiled without any water. During the boiling duration, juice from frog legs and bitter gourd will gradually release. My mum will only get very less soup than normal boil soup. The method of cooking will be exactly like boiling chicken with XO essence for confinement lady.

      3. 100PLUS - Yes drink as much as possible. A nurse told my mom, you want to recovered from Dengue or suffer fro intake of sugar too much? The best is drink without ice. My mum had took about one dozen of 1.5L 100plus.

      4. Half Boiled egg (High protein): Take every 2 half boiled eggs to increase the blood platelet. Nevertheless, it gives us energy.

    4. Muahaha, the last ROADBLOCK seasons, very funny lor but I totally agree with now. They are like hungry ghost during festive seasons, especially CNY.

    5. Somehow I think the tong sampahs are not enough in Malaysia. Compared to SG , the bins are everywhere and it's easier to dispose rubbish. In JB , I find it so difficult to find a rubbish bin till I cannot tahan sometimes ! I guess this has nothing to do with resources or money as I believe there should be sufficient funds with rubbish management for a municipal council or city council. After all, they only manages an area, not a country.

      These has also became breeding grounds for mozzies and hence, causes dengue. Of course the rakyat has to play a part but there should be some lead by example by the councils.

    6. Nice list of recovery food for dengue. Yeah , 100 plus is always recommended for any illness it seems, to recover he body fluids and rehydration caused by fever or diarhoea or vomiting.

      But the best is still prevention. Close all the windows in the evening as they usually come out to play then .... Lol

      Delete
    7. Nowadays have to be special careful when driving as you dunno if there's a roadblock in front ... Muahahhaha... Since CNY is around the corner. Hope everyone has a safe drive back home for the festival.

      Besides roadblock there's also someone hiding somewhere spying on you and information will be pass to those jaga in front. Careful ya ! Hahaha...

    8. 100Plus is good right. For the past few weeks .. I saw a few "white legs" came out to cari makan. Suka2 they block here, later suka2 block the other corner. After their pocket is full, they went to mamak stalls for lunch. Even right if front of school also got roadblock. Sigh!.
      This is a real case about roadblock - on ourway to KL from Genting holiday with my hubby that time. Said my husband didn't put safety belt. I was beside him. No choice we were asked to park at a side. Conversation between them were like this
      P: "Hi Encik, tak letak tali pinggang macam mana ni?"
      D: Sorry Encik tak sengaja, lupa. Kita jadi kawan lah dan bagi chance ler?
      P:Macam mana nak jadi kawan. Officer ade tu.
      D:Boleh lah tu....
      P:Macam mana pun, kena bagi IC dan Lesen. Lipat kecil kecil...cepat sikit...
      D: Terima Kasih Boss.
      P quickly asked my dear to put the license ic and the note in a log book - closed it. Very expensive Coffee lor... After that we were more and extra careful.

    9. Until today I still heard people saying around about our weather change. Lately the weather is extemely hot. And now saying the weather is getting colder. Last week,my friend experienced cold weather in Bangkok. She was posting wearing a sweater, it looks like pretty chill weather. Anyway Bangkok Im not surprise. Towards end of the year Bangkok' neighbour Chiangmai, Chiangrai and a few places will experience cold weather every year. Guess is the cold wind that will blows to us. Not snow, dream on. LOL. If is snow I think it will become Hujan Batu Ais this is dangerous....

  19. Huh? Roadblock season? I thought the fourth one is Durian season hahaha! Maybe we read from different sources...

      Cold weather East Asia? Bila? i tarak read leh. sorry ah...me not so up to date.

      The photo real one ka?

      abnormal frosting and snowing? Amagedon kot? LOL.... the other day saw one website prediction say north pole and south pole melting and the middle east will be frozen..... but still long way to go la . they predict will happen 3037. That time like the chinese saying "my bones already play drums" lah.

      Have i ever dream of Malaysia having four seasons ah? Hmm...nope. I have not dream of that nor imagine. Am happy enough with the current Malaysia 1 weather.

      First of all...i can tahan panas but i cannot tahan sejuk. If Malaysia have winter...i die first. imagine being trapped in the house shivering for 3-4 months...


      But if Malaysia have 4 seasons... i bet someone will think of imposing winter tax, summer tax, spring tax and autumn tax liao

      darn it yo! I nearly choke on ,my chinese tea when i click on the photo B and read your explaination. Students are looking at me one kind liao!

      True flood season but this year or was it say last December flood season at the east coast not as bad as the previous years.

      But terbalik in KL selangor we pulak kept kena flash floods. rained a bit only terus kena flooding . How la? Poor city planning?


      God will? Don't simply blame God for everything leh. Some things we can prevent punya. Like proper drainage. Like my place...developer build houses. Clear away the forest where water used to be serap into the soil. Now water got no where to go...road flooded liao. The drain also cannot cope with the volume of water.

      same goes for the subang jaya and USJ area. Build MRT this and that but all the longkang tarak clear betul betul....habis la. rain a bit will straight flood la.

      Yes...got plan...got money allocated but where did all the money gone to ya?

      Haze season...betul betul betul...but then this Haze season seems to be able to shift one leh. It seems to like to shift to whenever Standard Charter Kuala Lumpur Marathon dates leh. Last year the marathon got cancelled because of the haze. Because of the cancellation, i also go kaypoh and survey la... seems like the marathon date shifted from previous year just to avoid the haze but yet the haze followed. Really jinx or what LOL.

      yes...the never ending finger pointing ...we complain to the neighbour and our dearest neighbour said all the burning done by our malaysian companies that invest there.


      so what...if the company burn then find a way to fined the company la...why need point here and there la. if kena hefty find sure the company will stop doing that or lingkup.

      Haze season is an annual event...now I already prepared masks liao for the haze season. Rather than buying those disposable type and paying through my nose for it ..I buy the reusable cloth type. Now cheaper when the haze is not here. Thank you for helping me to buy fro Taobao. sediakan payung sebelum hujan

      This is one "season" that i am most scared of. Dengue season. Personal experience. My best friend mom a healthy woman of 50plus years old contracted dengue. Her system shutdown one by one and gone just like that. That time did not know about papaya leaves juice. She got fever 2-3 days then no more fever...then the fever come back with a vengence and gone ICU....cannot cure liao.

      That is why whenever J got fever i feel scared. flu ...sore throat all those tak apa. But if fever...haiz... too bad this dengue no cure ..no vaccine ...else i would have takn j for a jab. there are so many anti vaxer here but for me the vaccine is there and the scientist have come out with it...why not? why take the risk?

      Now got another new strand of dengue pulak...zika or something ah? That one affect pregnant woman where the baby born with smaller head. That is scary. No cure. Just think of what the mothers would feel.

      we will try not to leave water bertakung everywhere but then still sometimes it is fated. go makan then "donate" blood to mozzie then might kena dengue liao.

      Anyway... yes have heard of the papaya leaves juice to help to increase the blood pallete when ones have dengue. Must drink 1 teaspoon every few hours. Apart from Papaya leaves , to increase blood count can also drink promegranate juice and those fruit that is high in vitamin C. Coriander leaves also can be juice and drink for the dengue fever to reduce. All these can find in malaysia easily

      thank goodness for the advance in medical science. Now even have the tablet for the papaya juice thingy. can buy from our local pharmacy.

      LOL...yes now is Roadblock season.

      yes we all must be law abiding citizen and follow the road block instruction.

      the wonder of internet....saw the road blocks in malaysia is different from those in American leh. Ours ...3 lanes into 1 lane...there all lanes can jalan leh.

    6. Aiks....my driving license going to expire soon,thanks for the reminder. Aiyo...sometimes how to keep track of the expiry date ah? So many documents to keep tracked like passport, car road tax, property tax etc. Should send us sms reminders!

    7. Oh ... So many mentioned papaya juice is good for dengue. I noted that but toug wood also lah. My sis in law also drank flower crab soup during her recovery as well as the white part of water melon juice.
      Yes , now got this horrible zika virus. Seems like no ending , prevention is always better. Clean the surroundings and make sure no stail water around. Or spray repellent when going out to parks.

    8. I guess everybody prepared or stock up n95 masks now for the predictable haze season as well as have air purifiers ready.

      Ha-ha..I like the joke about standard chartered marathon. Got shift so many times ah ? Luckily in sg , it is held in Dec, which means rain has arrived and clean air expected. Aiya ..if thats the case, they should swap with other countries like HK who held it in Jan I believed. Safer and good weather.

      But we guys complained of the heat then during these minrhs. Best is to run it at night.

    9. Even in Singapore there's flash floods at certain places and they called it ponding. Yeah, don't anyhow said its acts of God, most of it are caused by humans. It's boils down to engineering issues. I am sure everything can be done to resolve it , just spend money only.

  21. A : Last year or was it the year before, I heard that it was very cold in Kuala Kerai in Kelantan. Apparently, it was so cold that some people had to wear sweater.

  22. Yeer, so sad lah our four season. I dislike the most is the HAZE season. I am afraid of the DENGUE season which is an all year battle. Sigh... not nice lah our seasons..

  23. Yes. Heard about the 寒风 thingy, they say Malaysia is going to face 16 degree too this coming CNY! Don't know true or not ho??
    Hmm, nothing is impossible, and things are unexpected... Keeping our fingers crossed la! ^^ (But if it's true, then not bad also ma, usually it's super hot during CNY, now we can experience something different! But but, means we have to wear thicker clothing to keep ourselves warm... I bought mostly sleeveless tops/short pants for CNY leh, how? :p)

    Anyway, it's true that I encountered very cold win blowing during the last 2 days at Bangkok last week. It was just a short moment of rain, and after that the weather turned cold already! About 16 degree. Never did I expect to buy and wear sweater at Bangkok!! Hubby cannot stand cold weather one, so he went bought a sweater for himself, we too bought jackets for Aden and Toby, kinda waste of money since they already have jackets back at home but no choice, must keep them warm. As for myself, I din't buy any sweater cause I can tahan, all thanks to my lemak! LOL! But honestly, when there's no wind blowing, the weather is just nice. But when wind blows, really quite cooling, must cover with scarf.

    This 4 seasons thingy of Malaysia, I saw people shared in FB before, haha! True, flood season is sure one of the season we have every single year. Not just end of the year la! Anytime! Just varies on how serious it is...

    Hah this haze season also same, we sure get to 'receive' this 'gift' from our dear neighbour every year!! 真是害人害己!! I hate this!!

    Dengue season, erm touchwood la, may be not so frequent... But on and off, a new type of virus will surface one. What HFMD la and so on, aih....

    Roadblock season, haha! Quite true, especially when festive season is approaching, can see they are getting very hardworking, even if it's very hot or raining (you know what I mean? :p)

  25. A Huh?? Really??? I guess maybe all that is the globe warming thing, but I did saw the news in Hong Kong about the weather is dropping a lot compare to the previous years (what?! Why would this don’t happened when I was in Hong Kong?? As when I went there last December, it was so so hot, I mean for the Christmas that time, it supposed to be very cold but last year it was so hot and what they told me it was the hottest Christmas eve they ever had) But by the way, in Luoyang here is so cold…always negative degree Celsius, actually negative is fine, just too bad the it has very strong wind constantly so like even the forecast is saying -3 degree Celsius, but plus the 21km/hr wind, it would become like -11 degree Celsius…and not just that, the worst thing here is I got to work outside sometimes and even work inside, the building has no heater…so no differences, just got to focus on work…by that can forgot the coldness…

    B About this I’ve asked my colleague from there, he said the flood happened annually, like seriously they knew it would come constantly but none of them doing any help… Out of sudden I thought of Japan’s earthquake, as since the day they knew there would be earthquake comes unpredictably so when they do the building construction, they will start to prevent it from the start…but so unfortunately ours one, seriously doing nothing, and don’t know what to do also…don’t say about flood la…Kuantan the one also, they just good at saying but no action….(不看都不氣)

    C Again, this is the same thing also…don’t know how’s the progress they should take to stop this, as I didn’t read much of the news (and mostly of the news just report the saying action but not the exact action, so no point to watch or read the news) Anyway, didn’t you realized the haze is getting worst and worst every year?? But even so, don’t know why they still doing nothing…is like 兵來將擋,擋過了就算了, never ever try to get something to fix it… Oh yah, I know the thing they know how to do every year is cancel class, cancel outdoor activities…that’s all nothing much…簡直就是治標不治本!

    D Yea, I’m quite scared of dengue seriously, no kidding…because it would get people killed, so better don’t play with it. I don’t have anyone around me kena, so I don’t know much. Anyhow with dengue season or without that we should always be aware of that also…because we don’t know when the hygiene problem will cause what to us, don’t you agree???

    E This one argh…I don’t go back kampung, so don’t know much about that. But the only roadblock I saw occasionally is the one on the way home from my office la…that seriously I don’t know why they want to make a roadblock during packing hours, as the LDP already jam for no reason daily and they still want to make a roadblock to cause the road more jam. Distance to home for half an hour but eventually more than an hour to reach because of that.

  27. Photo A - When Malaysia have 4 seasons, Anay will ask Thambee to order all the Winter and Autumn clothes from Taobao! We will become millionaires by selling these winter jackets, shoes and scarves! We will borong and become wholesalers! I will ask Thambee to personalize all the jackets with their own names like a designer brand. Everyone will love our merchandise! Good idea! Pray now for snow to fall on our heads soon.

  28. Photo B - Flood is one of the most scary disasters as we cannot fight with the mother nature. I have seen so many floods in Penang and Thailand all my life but not on the dangerous levels like what we saw on news that happened in China or India. I have been thinking why our gomen never took the trouble to rebuild all the houses in East Coasts on high pillars or stilts so that water woes would end. If they had done that 20 years ago, we don't need to evacuate the people in a panic manner again. The folks could just continue to live in the homes above the water and still travel out on boats below like how the Thais commute and trade along the water canals. They live on stilts and suffer nothing!!! Does my message make any sense?? Vote me as MP lah!

  29. Photo C - Adoi... This one is a bad karma that would punish the people who started the annual HAZE Seasons! Now it becomes an annual HATE Season for making the millions of people suffer, suffocate and angry. I find it stupid that their country's government could not catch the culprits and stop them once and for all. It sounds fishy somewhere!! They just let them repeat annually and then fight tooth & nails with water to wipe the fire out. Silly morons that multiply.

    I hope that they will use the satellite to detect the first fire and then use their drones to zoom into the thick densed plantations to capture the culprits!!! What is there so impossible to do that??? They seem to love fires and smoke. Let them burn in hell someday.

  30. Photo D - If you ask me how to prevent Dengue and all the contagious SARS outbreaks, you just need to light joss stick on your altar and chant the Goddess name many times daily. You should be safe at least as this deity is in charge of these outbreaks. I am not kidding dei.

    I also heard of those who drank papaya leaves juice and improved the blood pellets count. However, I heard from my community Facebook as many kena dengue too. They have sworn versions that the papaya leaves helped while some argued opposites. It was confusing to me to hear their different versions. I still believe the mantras of the Goddess is the best!!

  31. Photo E - This is the easiest and very predictable season among all the seasons in Malaysia. We just need a valid calendar and flip to the major festive months where these Roadbocks would commence at least 30 days before the festive season starts. It would actually ends like 4-5 days before the festive season starts. This is a open and known facts but no one is doing anything to end this nonsense season. Haiks!
