The Monsoon has started

If you are visiting the northern and north-eastern states or Peninsula Malaysia, you may want to take note of severe weather. Flash floods, thunderstorms, rough seas and strong winds of up to 60kph were expected to hit the northern part of the peninsula over the next few days, especially the coastal areas. The monsoon season has started.

The Meteorological Department (MMD) has issued a yellow stage warning, adding that heavy rain and thunderstorms with windy conditions were expected to occur over Kelantan and Terengganu beginning today. A yellow stage warning, the first of three warning levels, denotes a possibility of a monsoonal surge in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Coastal areas of east Johor, Kuching and Sarikei are vulnerable to sea level rise due to strong winds and battering waves. Flash floods are likely to occur in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur over low-lying areas affected by the city’s drainage system.

On Thursday, a mini twister swept through Mata Air, Jejawi, Perlis. Roofs were blown off while signboards were uprooted and houses damaged during the incident. A van was also overturned.

Going to the Gym With Style

Post contributed by Alfredo Gaines

Yesterday I decided that I needed to get out of my workout rut. Every time I went to the gym I tended to do the same old thing. I would start off on the treadmill or the elliptical machine. Then after I had warmed up a little I would hit the free weights. Occasionally I would hit up some of the other equipment but this was my typical routine. In all reality, it's boring for me and the only reason I go is so I can fit into my jeans. A sexy body doesn't make itself, sadly.

Anyway, I went to the gym and decided to try a different approach. Normally when I went I just wore some baggy work out clothes. I had never felt the need to dress up for a work out. What was the point of sweating all over my good clothes? I didn't want to buy anything just for working out either.

Well, this time I decided I would actually do just that. I went out the night before and bought a few cute little outfits that hugged my figure. I bought a few of those wrist and ankle weights too. Anyway, I was looking so cute! I set my home security system (click here for ADT SECURITY online offer TX) before heading out and felt ready to hit it hard. Wouldn't you know, when I got there the place was closed! I couldn't believe it. I didn't even realize it was a holiday. Hah!
