Yay! And it's Friday again! Time to let your hair down, hang loose and do your Friday thang!

Happy Friday, everyone! Kuala Lumpur is sunny today though the sky is hazy and the Petronas Twin Towers and the KL skyline make a nice watermark in the distance.

Nevertheless, it's Cafe time! Hey, I'm grounded, in a good way, of course..



You Are Grounded

You feel like you live a life of abundance. There is so much in your life to feel thankful for.

Making the little things wonderful is important to you, and you try to add a bit of comfort to each day.



You often help others with their problems. You offer practical and workable solutions.

Haze is back in Kuala Lumpur - September

Malaysia will celebrate Malaysia Day this year in three days time, i.e., on September 16. September is also a month where something else gets the attention of everyone. It is the haze, something less desirable unfortunately that affects the country this time of the year.

The KL skyline was as in the image below yesterday. It may look bad but we are at moderate API readings so nothing to worry about.


The Star reported yesterday that:

According to a Jakarta Post report, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellite detected 225 hotspots across Sumatra on Thursday.

This was an increase of 49 hotspots from the day before, which seemed to be present on the island's Riau, North Sumatra, Jambi and South Sumatra provinces.

Meanwhile, most Malaysian cities on the Peninsular's West Coast appeared to show a mixture of moderate and good air quality readings.

According to the Department of Environment website, the most unhealthy readings in the country yesterday were recorded in Malacca at Bukit Rambai. It had an Air Pollutant Index (API) reading of 72. Meanwhile, most areas in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur had moderate API readings of between 51 and 60.

You Are Individualistic

You like to do your own thing in life. Some may accuse you of breaking the rules, but you rarely know what the rules are.

You like to dive in and figure things out the best you can. By getting rid of expectations, you get amazing results.


You don't like dealing with details. You are more of a big picture oriented person, and you can figure out the steps as you go along.

You may have a colorful persona, but you are a private person deep down. You don't show your innermost self to just anyone.
