The beginning of this year started with the aftermath of the flood season in the coastal areas of the peninsula states.
Thereafter was the hot and dry season as the nearby counties of ASEAN regions were expecting the arrival of the El Nino drought disaster. We in Malaysia had never experienced this humidity and drought since more than 30 years ago. It struck us with intense heat so much so there are cases of heat stroke death but the statistics were not high. A few schools were closed and some schools were given directive by the Ministry Of Education not to hold activities in the field. All school activities were held indoors.
Now the hot weather has changed with intermittent rains. Some states have not yet recovered the drop in water levels at the Reservoir.
What do all the above have in our family’s daily life ? The biggest impact is obviously in our garden. Some of the plants are striving the hot climate. We have to water the plants extensively to make sure of their survival.
We are reorganising our gardens by repotting some trees that are growing big and transferring the fig trees in front of the back porch.
