     Hoping that dawn is more beautiful;
Make the best of the day with abilities,
     Dreaming of yesterday as more blissful.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC

2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report says that the world is
completely off track, heading more towards 3C temperature rise this century rather than 1.5C set by Paris Agreement. If this happens, it means serious consequences: more typhoons, floods, droughts, wilfires and rising sea water.


Pantun, Rainy Season.


Climate change brings typhoon,
     Sorcery will not be any good;
Rain and wind during monsoon,
     Lets pray for no bad flood.

Park and litter

Park and litter in Malaysia
     Many Malaysians go to parks, many of which are littered with waste such as plastics. Most parks have rubbish bins. Taman Rimba Kiara, next to Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, has bins, but the forest (rimba) may be reduced to brush (belukar). Taman Kiara has no bins because monkeys rummage them. Some parts of the park are still scattered with rubbish.
