Malaysia turns 57 today

Malaysia celebrates Independence Day today, August 31, making this our 57th year of independence from Great Britain.

The Hibiscus flower featured on this Google Doodle is our national flower. We certainly could do with more of this plant growing in the city. I heard it needs a lot of water, maybe that's why.



Here is where the country is. After the two Malaysian Airlines mishaps in a span of less than four months, I suppose everyone knows where we are now. In case you haven't heard, you can read about MH370, the plane that vanished without a trace with 239 people in it, and MH17, the plane that was hit over war-zone Ukraine killing all 298 people onboard.



And this is the Malaysian flag. I think it'd make a great outfit. Yes?



Happy Merdeka!

Friday Frolics - What Lights Up Your Life?

Hey hey hey! It's Friday again and time for yet another personality quiz. I'm sorry, not much time these days for blogging but let me assure you that this Friday thingy is a sure thing, so do drop by every Friday if for nothing else. I shouldn't be beating up myself like this, should I? No, I take that back, do drop by for the occasional new post. That's better? :D

Say, have you been taking in the good vibes of this Supermoon? A Supermoon is when the moon is closest to the Earth making it apparently larger in size than at other times. In Feng Shui, the effects of the Supermoon is positive as opposed to that of an eclipse.

While you are enjoying the moon, look out also for the Perseids, a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift–Tuttle.

The shower is visible from mid-July each year, with the peak in activity between 9 and 14 August, depending on the particular location of the stream. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. They can be seen all across the sky; but, because of the path of Swift-Tuttle's orbit, Perseids are primarily visible in the Northern Hemisphere. This year, the Perseids most active period is between July 17 to August 24. Look towards the North, I read.

And now the Quiz..
