Stormy Weather

If memory serves me right, a bold prediction earlier this year by the CWB said that there would maybe only three typhoons this year. With two currently heading towards Taiwan, and a few already behind us, obviously the black art of weather predicting is as black as ever.

Typhoon Talim is first in the queue, and should be here in a couple of hours.

The weather is also getting to people's heads a little, trying to get some breakfast this morning found one foreigner (on sandals) surounded at Yamazaki's bakery for apparently trying to steal a sandwich. Meanwhile things weren't much better at Starbucks, where everyone stayed in the far corner as a very unhappy housewife was talking and shouting loudly by herself while stirring her remaining latte.

A couple of years ago I took a overseas mental health professor to the mental health hospital on the outskirts of Taipei. Inside the locked up areas, things get bizarre. Surrounded by Taiwanese drugged out on relaxation elixer , but speaking fluent English, the stresses of the Bushibans become just a little clearer. Go up a floor, and you will find the foreigners for whom the stresses of Taipei became too much.

Feeling stressed out? Do take it a little easier, and of course, buckle up, get your bottles of water and whatever and ride out the storm tonight.

This year 2012, typhoon with international name Talim also, will hit the Philippines are of responsibility. After that it might go to the other near country like Taiwan and Japan. It's better if we stay on our house to keep safe and secure because according to the Philippines Weather, this typhoon will bring heavy rainfall and mudslides.
