AFTER almost a week of cool bliss, the warm weather returned to Kuala Pilah today.

School principal, Nasarudin Zainal, 53 said the town's folk are venturing out again to attend weddings in their normal attire and are no longer wearing jackets.

"I had to wear a jacket for the past week to go to the mosque due to the cool weather especially during subuh prayers as it is freezing. Now it's back to normal again," said Nasarudin.

Universiti Malaysia Pahang undergraduate Fatin Nurshamimi Amran, 19, said residents can see the sun once again and they can now dry their laundry under the hot sun more properly.

"My family had to put off the laundry several times due to the slight drizzle and finally today I can do the laundry. But I'm going to miss the cool winds," said Fatin Nurshamimi.

Kuala Pilah which is known to be the hottest and driest areas in the country experienced unusual cool weather for the past four days which saw temperatures plunging to 21 degree celcius which is rare in sweltering Malaysia.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department said the western part of Peninsular Malaysia is experiencing cooler weather than usual due to the current north-eastern monsoon which is expected to dissipate by tomorrow.
