Bless Brunei

June 16, 2009

Weather is a good ice-breaker and not only the British are fond of talking about the weather, the Bruneians do too. This morning I was awoken by the smell from an open burning from my neighbour. I don’t know if they don’t really know (or care) about what’s going on with the weather now but it is very unhealthy and very dangerous as we hear forest fires destroying hectares of lands.

The Panaga Natural History Society has cancelled a trip to Badas this Thursday to look out for the pitcher plants as the area was badly damaged by the recent forest fires. So sad to know that precious plants like the pitcher plants are lost due to this. Surely we can stop the fires if we have civic-minded people.

The weatherman said its going to be dry and hazy until August for Brunei. The weather has been very hot and very dry indeed. Along the way to work at lunchtime, I saw bush fires in front of DST Headquarters Building. They (the bush) just cant stand the heat😦

And guess what happened at around two in Bandar and elsewhere in Brunei Muara today? Thunderstorm complete with lightning and thunder and heavy rain. I am truly grateful for the rain. May Allah bless Brunei, amin.
