I’ m here to wish everyone in HK safe especially my colleague the IOD’s team.

- The symbol will be displayed when the tropical cyclone is expected to weaken into a low pressure area.
- Past track is in black, forecast track is in red.
- The average errors of the analysed and forecast positions are of the order of:
Analysed Position 30 km 24-hour forecast position 150 km 48-hour forecast position 250 km 72-hour forecast position 350 km
- The centres of the red, blue and grey circles are the forecast positions of the tropical cyclone at different times (as shown at the upper left corner of the figure). The radii of the circles are the respective average forecast errors.
- The analyzed tropical cyclone position (the symbol ) is based on Hong Kong Observatory’s hourly bulletin for public derived from the real-time satellite or radar-based positions.
- Short term erratic departures from the general direction of movement occur from time to time. These departures are partly due to difficulties in locating the centre of the tropical cyclone / low pressure area, and partly due to short term fluctuations in the direction and speed of movement of the centre.
You people must be wandering why I don’t post anything regarding the MLTR concert rite? Is not that I didn’t make it to the concert is just waiting the right time to post it up. I don’t get any close up photographs of them or even video it.
I can say that the concert was a blast of my life. The starting of the concert was so beautiful totally dark in the Arena of Stars then it was like looking up the skies.. it is so beautiful. Hats off to those people who come out the ideas. It was my first time that I’m able to see them in person and live concert…Although I’m not sitting the VVIPs seats but from my angle of the seats is good enough. Most of their hits or number one single was sang by them. The atmosphere was superb..when everyone start to sing together and Jascha when down from the stage and go to some portion of the fans. Darn!!! I was at the left side in the middle… I’m able to have a glimpse of him while passing by.
I like the part where Jascha play us out when singing the Actor and suddenly move to 25minutes. He does really play us out there. Then he even say that we the audience are so good that they have to go back and let us sing. I like most of the songs that they sang on that day. Can’t get to know the first song that he sang.. then there is another new single which I like.. they sang song like The actor..25minutes…That’s why…Take me to your heart..Paint my love…etc.. You know what..I’m going to buy their DVD for the asian tour..
It has been quite time for me traveling to KL city using the KTM commuter train. Last few weeks ago, I was taking the KTM from the place I’m currently staying in Kajang, which is the Kajang station. Well I’m going to tell the whole story to you so you might get bored in middle of the story.
When I was walking towards to the KTM station saw some people are giving out brand new product from a chocolate company. The new product is choclairs. I’m not sure I get the name rite. Now KTM with the Touch”n”GO system is much more easy for traveller to travel. Waited for around 15minutes there are lots of people are waiting at the station to board the train to KL. When the train arrive out of my mind and I saw… OH MY GOD!!! the whole train is pack with people. Is like sandwiches and you need to squash with both of your hands. The next stop..another batch of people boards the train. That time I was very very hot..stuffy..and most of all..damn frustrated..I saw some youngster will not let an old lady to sit and let her stand all the way to Sentral. OMG! Malaysians…
I would like to highlight out, sometime foreigners will say us are humble and polite. I don’t really agreed to it. Even thou I’m a Malaysian myself. When comes to driving on the road and boarding any transportation all the ugly side of the Malaysians are shown. Come on Malaysian, be little courtesy a bit. All the way up to Sentral I was standing in between all this people where one of them…the armpit…Gosh! luckily you put perfume on it. If not the guy beside me and I’ll die. After the more than 30minutes of Ordeal…I reach Sentral. This is my first time at Sentral. I told my beloved, I rather she buy a car than take public transportation. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION? A BIG NO! BUY YOURSELF A CAR!
Then there is another guy I really piss off. I was at Genting’s First world’s bus station. When I board to the bus that brings me back to Kajang. The bus do go-to some other place to. My beloved and I bought the tickets don’t have any number written in it and we thought is free seating so do other people who boards the bus back to Kajang. Then come this guy telling me that I’m sitting his sit. During that time there are a lot of seats still available. He insisted to take the seats and check my tickets also. My beloved tell me not to start a commotion for this small problem so we move one seat back. Everyone was sitting freely and he insisted to sit that number. One of the guy really piss off. The problem feller still yak yak~~ about the sitting. I’ve given him seats..and he is sitting there.. until the guy who really piss off shouted at him and say everyone also got seats..you also got seats and SHUT UP! then the bus driver check the tickets all of the people and he calm the feller down. All is okay..then we all get to know that he only bought one seat and he still need to share with other people rite? why cant other seats there still is window? the feller really piss me and the whole bus off…and he is so…… C C
