Of Garden Parties and Freezing Winter in Europe

Some of us may incessantly be complaining about our hot and humid weather here in Malaysia, but at least we can hold garden parties or poolside parties any time of the year and can probably show off our modern outdoor seating furniture?

Just as heat kills, freeze can also kill. 89 people have died from the extreme cold in Eastern Europe.

According to The Star/Reuters, in Ukraine, 43 people have died in the past five days. This winter has been reported to be the coldest winter in six years.

Overnight temperatures sank as low as minus 33 degrees Celsius (minus 27 Fahrenheit) and hundreds of heated tents have been put up to shelter the homeless.
