drought in s.e.asia still going on.

9 May

london 1.59pm 23.1C sunny monday 2016. 8.17pm rain 17.9C

i have read  in some s.e.asian blogs mentioning they are sweltering in high temperatures and did not quite realise it is anecdotal evidence ( word on the ground) about the big drought affecting s.e.asia now.  i saw a report of it, this heat wave, affecting the region with record high temperatures.

interesting isn’t it? those living through it will be sitting indoors with the airconditioning on full blast. but, fear not those who are suffering the effects now,  i have a feeling the drought will be ending as when i look at the weather map in malaysia, it shows rain practically everyday.  that suggests the monsoon season has arrived. people can look forward to lots of fresh green vegetables and lower temperatures.

we here in london always have fresh vegies on tap, because we can buy them world wide, being quite a rich city with world wide trade links. so we can get fresh vegies in winter, and now with spring here and the harvest from local farms coming onstream we should be able to get more salad vegies soon. they are really very nice with mayonnaise, even the tesco basic one that i buy, which costs only 40p for 500mg, dont know how they do it, but they  make a really delicious accompaniment to salads that i find irresistable and makes eating salads such a joy. whenever i have them i associate it with summer.

      nice to know u like them. i find if i post a single picture, it cannot be seen in its original large size. which is a pity because i always think being able to see it in detail in large format is one of the joys of having pictures in wordpress. i have to post at least two pictures which then appear as a slide show before it can retain its original large size.
