the day it turned zero

snow11
Mar 2002 - Shaver Lake, California

Yesterday , at -3 deg , was the first bout of winter wonderland in the UK due to the happyfyingly chilly nothern winds.Not happy. My ears feels like they're falling off.my nose feels frozen to the touch. But due to the bizzare sunniness of the whole day (need sunglasses), I am actually sweating, believe it or not, after walking into town earlier. But my ears are still numb from the painful chills. Go figure.

I've dugged through my packed boxes to retreive last years' winter clothes - at the rate the weather's changing, I simply cannot afford to just keep buying new clothes every other day!!!! Oi, winter clothes are not cheap ok (more material, thicker, all that jazz) …but I do quite fancy the mixing and matching of different outfits to create 'a look' .I feel the pressure to be pseudo fashionable here due to the everchanging stock(every other month) in the shops signalling a new trend and out with the old….and me walking in with my painfully so-ten-minutes-ago polka dotted hairband has the salesgirls cringing in pain. Well, not that serious, but close. I remember I could wear the same thing for a few years in KL, and it'll still be on sale!!

I've also stumbled across some pictures of our first snowy trip back in 2002 - back in the days where we were not stuck in Gua, Goa or GB - but in Fresno. It felt that we were like the three stooges…in a good way

I used to live outside of Reno so I was at Tahoe skiing a lot. Did some good camping and hiking up at Echo lake and I've made that drive from Sacramento more than a couple of times.

I was at food courts today but I took the cowards way out and had chiken rice sets......pretty good anyway.

Any good recommendations to get Nasi Lemak?

You can find good Nasi Lemak at Holland Village. Anyway, Malaysia Nasi Lemak is still the best!
