"...nothing but the wild rain"

Was heading home from a friend’s solemnisation lunch last Saturday when a sudden downpour hit.

The skies had been grey for some time but I thought the clouds would hold.

They didn’t, and I unfortunately was forced to take shelter at the SMU building.

It was extremely miserable and frustrating because I could see the skies ahead were blue and clear but the clouds were covering the portion of town where I was at.

A geospatial visual (I’m the blue dot and I wanted to head north):

Pek chek is when you are the blue dot and you're heading north but you're prevented from doing so by the thin band of clouds that are as inconsiderate as drivers going at 50km/h in the right-most lane.

I think I’m getting a bit too old for this and I’m wondering if it’s time to add to the stable and get an OPC.


It’s kinda sian (dreary?) for me because the afternoon rains always seem to come just as I’m about to head back home. So I’ve been stuck at work until 5+pm for the last few days. As productive as I try to be, sometimes, there’s only so much a person can do before s/he has to take a break and recharge.

I hope the weather gets better over the next few days or something, but then again, maybe I should be finding alternative ways of getting home/going to school instead of letting the gloom get to me.
