The weather has gone crazy! It has been raining rather heavily before Christmas 2008. Now two weeks later, it is still raining! The most difficult part since the school reopen on 5th Jan, is that it has been raining at around 5:50AM everyday.
So the children going to school everyday must face the rain! Look at this morning... this original (no retouch) picture was taken from my car... just see how gloomy it was. Traffic jam, etc.
It also reminded me of the good old days... the luxury of cars was limited to a few who are rich and where roads were available. Most of us would walk for 1-2 KM to school. Some walk even further. Many would cycle for up to 8KM. While I was in primary one, I remembered only twice when my father would cover me under a thin raincoat, mounted me on the bicycle and cycle me to school. My brothers would cycle on their own.
It was illegal to carry any body on a bicycle at that time. So, my father was risking being "caught by the police".
