August, this month should be the peak of summer season or dry season in Indonesia, but lately I’m feeling so cold in the middle of the day when the sun was shining so sunny. At 12 am, it’s my time to take a break until 3 pm and in that time I used to lay down near the open door at the second floor of the dorm. The wind just perfectly cool, just like autumn breeze. Sometimes I sat for few minutes under the sun to warm my self.
I recalled when I was in Java that the season like this is a sign of a flower that we call kembang turi. The flower can be cooked, just discard the yellow pistil. It used to be boiled then strain. It will be delicious to eat with peanut sauce and others boiled vegetables and we call this cuisine as pecel.
Back to the topic…..
In August the rain also often falling especially at the night. Just like last week, it was a lovely day in the afternoon, blue sky, white wisp of clouds an in the evening was as stunning as summer night with sky full of stars. I dried my clothes after I washed it but at late at night it was raining! very hard rain puring down and I was so sleepy to collect my clothes. In the morning I had to washed them again and dried them again under the roof. Yes, it happened again, rain fell in the middle of the night.
It’s August! should be hot and sunny why now it turn to be rainy? One of global warming effect? I guess so… even some old people said, “The world’s getting old….”
