I survived, without air-conditioning, the heat and drought in Britain in the summer of 1976, a feat worth remembering.
For 15 consecutive days from 23 June to 7 July, 1976, temperature reached 90°F (32.2°C) somewhere in England. On June 28, I vacated my room in college permanently.
(Heatwave details from the BBC Weather Centre and Wikipedia.)
In the same vein, I experienced the superstorm of 1993 that hit the east coast of North America.
Here appear occasional jottings of my random musings. Profound or jejune, they reveal the contours of my mental universe, with world history, intellectual history, civilizations, philosophy, religion, society, knowledge, and books as some major themes. Since May 2011, this blog has been exclusively focused on Singapore. All my other reflections are now posted in "Notes from Noosphere" (see link under "Miscellany" on the right margin).
