I posted something about “I Love You” as you can see below. So I usually give people time to read it and comment instead of keep posting entry by entry. This time I skip that one. It’s about flash flood in Penang. Even though I posted something similar recently but this time it was worse!
I got invitation for breaking fast at my sister’s house. It rained for the whole day yesterday and around 6pm my mom called me to see our backyard! I whispered to myself “Not again!” Yes the army as usual drained out the water from their tank again. I have no idea why they always do so every time it rains heavily. The water flowed in. Sigh.
In front...Joseph told me about flash flood was everywhere. He was on the way to cyber café to play his Ragnarok. He sent me a MMS to show his bike.
Joseph's bike...Around 7pm when the rain was not so heavy, we went out. We went to my dad’s friend to get the murtabak that we ordered earlier to bring to her house. The village had been sunken by water! I drove slowly as I didn’t want to be stuck in the water and couldn’t even drove back home. We managed to pass few junctions that were flooded badly. Reached at the murtabak stall, there was flood again. So, we changed the plan to use other road instead of Relau. We used Bayan Baru’s road. Sadly, flood was there too… in front of Pantai Mutiara Hospital. We turned to the left to use Sunshine Square’s road but it was flooded. Turned to Seri Malaysia Hotel’s road and I got the same result! Argh! Ok there was just one road left. Sungai Tiram! Which I could use the airport highway on the hill. No flood of course. Again we stuck at Sungai Tiram! Flood in front of the factories! I was pissed off. The traffic jam was bad.
Sungai Tiram...End up we reached at my sister’s house around 9pm. Break fasting was at 7.30pm but we ate our dinner at 9pm. Luckily she cooked some delicious foods… and my favorite prawn tempura was in the menu! I smiled.
Around 10pm Joseph text me about the flood had gone. Thank God!
