Britain starts to clean-up after heavy rains and high winds caused bad flooding in the midlands, west and north of Britain.
At least 3 people were killed in the flood.
The flood is disrupting parts of the road and rail network, and damaging buildings as heavy rain falls on north-east England and north Wales.
Heavy rain caused a landslide in Whitby, North Yorks that damaged some houses and five houses will be demolished within two days.
One places that was worst-hit by the flood is the small city of St Asaph, North Wales.
Experts warned there could be more downpours in certain areas early next week and 140 flood warnings are still in place across England and Wales.
The South East may be facing further flooding as river levels continued to rise.
The River Thames at Oxford had reached its maximum and downstream towns such as Reading, Berks, and Sunbury in Surrey were on flood alert.

This morning, I went to the General Post Office at Dayabumi Complex, Kuala Lumpur for the launch of a very beautiful new stamp series, The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
I reached there at about 8:30 am but the queue was already very long. I had to queue for about 4 hours to buy the stamps! Thankfully we arrived quite early because people who arrived 10 minutes after us had to queue in the sun. While waiting, I saw my big sister Kafah weeping and when I asked her why, she said that she felt dizzy. My mother took her away to find a seat and she fainted. But after a short while, she was okay. After that she waited for us in the office.
When we reached the counter, the stamp sheets were already sold out and the folders are almost sold out too. We bought some First Day Cover with Miniature Sheet, First Day Cover with Stamps, Maniature Sheet, Folder and some stamps.
Both stamps are RM 1.50 while the miniature sheet is RM 5.00. One of the of the stamps from The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is a replica of the 10 cents red coloured 1953 Malaya Selangor Queen Elizabeth II Coronation stamp. The other is of Prince William and his wife to mark their royal visit to Malaysia from September 13 to 15, 2012.
Fortunately at about 1:30 pm the post office received a new stock of the stamp sheets and we managed to buy some. Both stamp sheets are beautiful but I prefer the replica of the 10 cents red coloured 1953 Malaya Selangor Queen Elizabeth II Coronation stamp. The whole series of The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is very beautiful and I am so happy to be able to buy them. It is worth the very long queue.

Emoden was an alien from Pluto. Kamosa, Goplaga, Hilama, Meido and Emoden became friends. Meido invited Kamosa and all his other friends to visit Earth. Anyway, only Kamosa and Emoden agreed to go with him.
On Earth, they met three new friends named Qoyris, Clara and Insyirah.
Qoyris gave Kamosa the ’4 Players Chess’ set that Kamosa left on Saturn.
Qoyris found it the last time he went to Saturn. Anyway, Kamosa gave the ’4 Players Chess’ set to Qoyris because he already had another set that Goplaga gave for his birthday. Qoyris was very, very happy.
Qoyris said that he came from Saudi Arabia. One day, he went to Calovinia for a holiday. But when he wanted to go back to Saudi Arabia, he forgot where the airport was. So he was stuck in Calovinia until he built a spaceship and became an astronaut.
Clara came from England and Insyirah was from Riyadh but they traveled to a lot of places because they were astronauts too.
The next day Kamosa went back to Jupiter to meet his family. Anyway Emoden stayed on Earth and he met a lot of new friends.

Today is Sir Isaac Newton’s birthday.
He was born in England on 4 January 1643 (1643-01-04).
Sir Isaac Newton is the person who discovered gravity.
He discovered gravity when he was sitting under an apple tree.
After that an apple felt on his head.
Then he started to think what made the apple falls on his head.
I think Sir Isaac Newton is very, very, very clever.

On 25/7/09 2 Syaaban 1430 I went to Khalifah Institute Dinner and Talk at Grand Ballroom, Flamingo Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Bro Idris Tawfiq give a talk entitled From the Vatican to Al-Azhar. Bro Tawfiq is a British Muslim writer who now lives in Egypt.
[Here is his blog -
He was a Roman Catholic priest for 20 years.
For many years he was Head of Religious Studies in different schools in England and Wales.
There were lots of people at the Flamingo Hotel.
I reached home at 1:00 AM.
My father’s car broke down and we have to walk back home.
I slept at 2:30 AM.
I think there are going to be more ‘Dinner and Talk’ in the future.
