A rare sight in KL, a cloudless sky (no filter). The dead tree is probably less rare!

There has been much talk of it being the coldest Chinese New Year in Kuala Lumpur in decades. There’s no denying that the weather is unusually balmy, and for the past couple of days we’ve had clear blue skies and noticeably lower humidity, topped off by a light breeze. Apparently this ‘cold’ weather is being sent over from China. Well thank you China. Let’s just hope that you’re not sending anything else with the wind. Yesterday, the thermometer in my car never went above 26 °C which is really, really unusual. So it’s perfect running weather. Which is why I haven’t run today. Too much wine last night – it was Chinese New Year’s Eve – makes today seem like an ideal rest day. Tomorrow I’ll do my LSD and properly welcome in the Year of the Horse. Let’s hope this ‘chilly’ weather sent from China holds 🙂
