oh, a lovely morning

18 Jan

london, 9.56am 4C sunny (it has been -0.4C at 7.45am. ) wednesday 2016

bright blue sky and sunny out there this morning.

i was surprised to see an advert from malaysia airlines giving £375 rtn to kuala lumpur. when i click on that i found it is only for booking today, and only for travel within 1 feb to 28feb. but wait a bit and there might be another offer like this for travel in march.

and the ringgit is still good exchange value with the £ so this fare  is very good value. the cheapest i have seen for a direct flight.

 pity i am not really bothered to travel nowadays otherwise it would be great to just dash down to kl for a  quick visit. most of my chinese friends have allready gone to kl as they want to be there on chinese new year. but to me, i much prefer it outside that holiday period. if you are the unmarried gay uncle, you are an odd man out at the family reunions of your brothers and sisters. and you are too old to be receiving angpows anyway…

also, prices go up, that is if u are lucky to find any hawker stalls run by the chinese to be open…for a short period, all the chinese hawker stalls are closed as they go off to their reunions. but after that period, prices come down, or go back to normal, and u get a suffeit of mandarin oranges that are left unsold. haha. and business slows down so u become a valued customer again. but i am not going there so it is all a moot point haha.

i got a chicken roasting in the oven now. looking forward to eating it. this time i did not buy it in its own bag. so i should be able to get that lovely roasted skin to eat. i seasoned the insides with curry powder. dont know if anyone do that, but it gives it flavour without overpowering it.

today has been such a lovely day, clear sky, crisp air, sunshine, that when i came back from the library and saw this article online about air pollution in london and alerts for the next two days of bad air, it made me wonder is it me or is it the instruments measuring it, or what!? how come i dont see any smog or pollution at all. am i kidding myself and all this pollution is invisible, but real? or is it something wrong with the instruments… before u start ridiculing that idea, i point out to you all the different figures that the weather websites say about temperatures in london. two of these gadgets that measure the temperature will give wildly different readings , even though they are quite near each other. now i ask myself why is that? it makes me very sceptical about instrument measurements. i dont trust them.

    That rate is indeed a steal! You could go to KL 😊

      when u consider the £ has dropped by 20% it is really the cheapest ever fare. what a pity i dont like travelling abroad anymore. but maybe malaysians might like to come to london instead. might be singaporeans might find it cheaper to come to kl to take that flight.
