MALAYSIA: MetMalaysia called for calm today as concerned motorists using the North-South Highway have reported reaching their destinations earlier than expected.
“I thought Waze was playing up but I reached Johor after leaving KL just two hours ago,” said one driver, “my odometer says the journey was 270KM but I remember it being further than that!”
“Comparing satellite images taken this week and last indicate the current cold snap has caused a temporary case of ‘peninsula shrinkage,’” explained meteorologist, Dr. Abdullah bin Bakar,
“It’s no different to what happens to your own ‘private headland’ once you get out of a cold swimming pool. It’s completely normal and nothing to be ashamed of!”
Malaysia has promised a smirking Vietnam the embarrassing shrinkage will go away once it warms a little.
