The Heat is Back!

'Dont speak too soon'. Last week I wrote about how the weather has gotten better. And then 2 days later we got hit by yet another heat wave. This time it came with a Vengence! Yesterday (Monday) the temp went up to 41-42C or 104-105F. It was so freaking hot and its gonna continue until at least Thursday. Already a few death reported esp the elderly. Some areas are left without electricity since Friday and I cant even imagine how those ppl affected are coping with the heat.

Anyways, last Sat we went to a beach party to celebrate among other things, a belated birthday and Merdeka in Seal Beach. Though it was hot in Orange, it was surprisingly nice at the beach. We had a great time and actually spent 6hrs there. (I will post some pics later). After that, even with a full stomach, we just couldn say no to an invite to have laksa johor and assam laksa so off we went to Long Beach. Suffice to say that we came home full-bellied and also made new friends. ;)

It's not too bad here in Richmond. Mid 80's during the day and 60's at night.
Seronok makan assam laksa ya.. Eh, cik abang pun suka assam laksa?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

assam laksa in long beach, california!

if laksas are available by the road-side stalls there, i imagine ppl like greenday and snoop dog helping themselves to a few bowls.

and the greenday guy will go, 'awesome, dudeee!' while snoop dog will go 'F.......f....f..f....f...!

My doors are open to anyone needing a break from the heat. Gurdeep, your winged ones, too. :) Only condition, must cook some delish Malaysian meals while here. LOL.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

u guys r so craving for malaysian food i feel like i'm out of place. the thing is, i am so not into california roll, which is totally not californian. hihi..



thanks for visiting my blog.
That season the the year, huh?
I know I could never stand hot summers in the States.
Way back in 1980 when I was studying in Boston, I'd come back to Malaysia during the summer and return to Boston for the fall semester.
and then when it was so cold in the fall (Boston gets harsh cold weather), we'd pray for an Indian summer.

WEll...hope the summer gets but nice.

take care....

It has been so bloody hot in Louisiana (90F- 100F). arrgghh! It is a rude shock for me. (I long for Germany's mild summer weather).

Anyway, they forecasted that next week's temperatures around this area will drop into the 80s (high). phew! I am waiting for it to be cool so I can start wearing my boots! :) (vanity calling.. haha)

PrincessJournals said...
