It rain heavy this evening, it has been hot and humid all weeks long, plus with the haze it has been rather a gloomy week....The heat and haze makes living rather difficult and outdoor activities a no, no, With the blazing heat most people would spend their weekends at the shopping mall which are fully air condition... So if you are in one of these mall, life would be just like in the summer, the temperate climate of the west.... I went to the KLCC mall this weekend and sure enough the place were crowded with shopper and as usual the food courts were full of people enjoying their meals in the comfort of the mall cool atmosphere.... Well that what technology has done to contained the temperature of a space and without this air conditioning it would not be possible to build such a huge mall let alone getting people to patron it.... The KLCC is just about three minutes from my home so to me it is just a place to go for a weekend lunch or just to browse along at those departmental store.... This week at the centre of the mall there was a display of the latest Honda.... I had a look and with the new engine of two thousand c.c. it would makes driving on the highway a pleasure.... Crowd throng the space of the display and it look like the promoter are getting many booking for this new version Honda Civic....That is Malaysian... They all love new cars and first timer to this country would be real surprise to see that the Malaysian roads are always with new cars.... Where has happen those old car gone... I wonder sometime.... With the heat... I notice the squirrels and the frogs that are usually found in drain in front and behind my house are not to be seen.... Where have they gone... Perhaps to some air conditioned mall of their own I supposed to enjoy life just like us.... This rain I think would bring back those birds that are always around after the rain... It would be nice to see those bird chirp and sing, jumping from branch to branch merrily all morning... Happy I guessed that the air is cool and there are plenty of food around to pick up.... And life would returned to normal again at the small garden in front of my house.... Soon there would be those small flying insects and butterfly hovering around doing their job pollinating the flowers and in a way complete the eco system...In nature's way..... It is nice to hear the rain pattering on the roof and the window pane and the smell of the fresh rain and the freshness of the atmosphere.... Nostalgic to me... It bring me back memories of my childhood days living in the house, the roof of which are made of the leaves of the nipah leaves...It has a peculiar type of smell when it rain.... And now there are no more for we no long use that type of roofing material.... Modern they say.... Well it came with progress....What progress... I do not know.... I still love those smell of the nipah leaves.... It so refreshing, so natural.... But now it is different,the roof are made of glazed roofing tiles and it does not smell like the smell of nature anymore...... Progress bring changes.... Well that is life... It is an ever changing world... So lets make hay while the sun shine and tell a different stories to our grandchildren when the time comes... That is the way.... For we are just passing through on this blue planet of ours..... Enjoy.....
