One of the major disasters that hit the state of Selangor was the 2021 flood that hit Sri Muda & the surrounding areas that saw some amazing efforts by everyone to provide food, medical care and in some cases, evacuation to the affected residents including this brave boy who had to wade deep waters just to get food for his family.

This will be the last post on the doomsday bunker and will be touching one of the key components of a doomsday bunker which is clean air ventilation. The ventilation needs to withstand nuclear, biological and chemical attacks and must be able to filter toxins from the outside, powerful enough to vent the whole bunker and is easy to be operated manually by a child.

Global Forest Watch reported that from 2002 to 2020, Malaysia had lost about 2.70Mha (around 27,000 square kilometres) of humid primary forest which in turn impacts the greenhouse gases emission.
This amounts to 34% of the total tree cover loss in the same 20 years. Interestingly this also amounted to a loss of 8.39Mha (around 84,000 square kilometres) of tree cover, equivalent to a 29% decrease in tree cover since 2000 and 4.82Gt of CO₂e emissions.

In 2015 the Government made it mandatory for residents to separate their waste at the source and I was happy that finally something concrete being done on the manner our garbage is being processed.
After all, we have not gone big by going with recycling on a wider scale coupled with a greater push towards protecting the environment. Image source: Ministry of Housing & Local Government.
The buzz word of the day is recycling and there is no major act from Malaysians to prioritize recycling in daily life.
