Some life updates


Panoramic view

Kuala Lumpur should be entering the summer-y season by now but it seems like heavy rains still here to stay. The rain created dramatic sunset — this is a major TIL for me.

The reddish hue that you see at sunset (especially during rainy seasons) is due to the reflection of light from the low-cloud base, which happens to be relatively close to the ground. This is how rain plays an important role in changing the hue of the sky from blue to pale-white, yellowish-orange (especially over brightly lit roads) or even reddish.

Why Does The Sky Sometimes Appear Reddish During Rainy Seasons?

Also, you might know about it, but last week we concluded our team meetup in Langkawi, Malaysia. For some of the teammates, it was their very first team meetup. For some, it was a team meetup after 2.5 years of no traveling.

It was bittersweet, really. We were so happy to meet each other, but at the same time we had looming anxiety of what-ifs and general concerns about pandemic.

Anyway! We stayed at this hotel named Camar Langkawi. In 2019, my colleagues stayed on this hotel too when they had their team meetup and they wouldn’t stop raving about it. My team almost stayed there back in 2020 when we planned our team meetup. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the booking due to Covid-19. It was after 2.5 years we finally return there.

The only thing that I’m concerned about is the accessibility on the hotel. Their elevator is quite small in size and might not be suitable for wheelchair.

During the team meetup, we chatted about our work and our day (something like “How I Work”-chat) and the discussion gave a fresh inspiration to the team to exercise more and be healthy. All of us are tech workers and we are bound to sit on our desk of hours. Some of the teammates lead a pretty active lifestyle, and they shared some tips and encouragements for others (especially me, your self-certified potato) to start exercising. So, yeah, apparently swimming at 7 AM is therapeutic.
