It Didn’t Just Rain, It Hailed!

For the first time since the haze, it rained this afternoon. Man, did it rain!

Mounting tensions between countries and frustrations of the affected citizens were appeased as everyone rejoiced.

THANK YOU INDONESIA for the haze control effort and cloud seeding program to bring in the rain! All hail to the Haze Busters 😀

The stuff that is going around in the Singapore’s social media now:
Stay away from the rain water. Acidic and laced with toxins due the the haze. Those with cars in the open, remember to have a good wash end of the day to avoid corrosion.

Hailstones are scary. Can break windshield.

These are not hailstones; they’re hazestones.

When I said I wanted to get stoned, I didn’t mean it like this!

My area here rain diamonds down…

Time for us to set fire to the rain!

It was disastrous. many things in my home broke or toppled..

Cloud seeding rain. poisonous.

Wudduh it’s acid rain today… There was a strange smell in duh air while it was raining…

At least got some liquid water better than nothing!

My side no rain lehhh.

West side people pray, thats why it rains here :p it’s a miracle yo~!

If SG starts snowing ITS THE END OF THE WORLD!!!

Singaporeans are afraid to “die” in many aspect of the word. Since we have been advised to stay out of the rain (my area rained so we are a praying lot, haha), I decided to stay home this afternoon. I’m on antibiotics and my gums are still a teeny sore hence I had a very healthy soft meal 😉

Enjoy!

Greek Yogurt with Wheatgerm.

Greek Yoghurt with Strawberry. I had some Wheat Germ, too.

Eating yogurt or taking a so-called probiotic when you have to take antibiotics may help prevent the diarrhea that often accompanies antibiotic treatment. For more information, click here.

Oh man, it’s raining! Allelujah!

Happy blogging 🙂
