wanted to write about our recent holiday but wasnt in the mood. it rained heavily on sunday morning. the lighting was so bright that it woke hubby and i up at 3am. we checked on amir, felt really uncomfortable. early yesterday morning, we went out for breakfast as we usually do. wanted to look for food in the nearby housing area. when we got to the main road leading to the area, the oncoming drivers told us to turn back. hubby (being the kepoh person he is) drove on wanting to see what the commotion was about. as we turned the corner, we saw loads and loads of cars parked by the roadside near the school. we also saw water on the road. we didnt want to get stuck so we turned back and decided to enter through another way (didnt realise it was bad). i sms-ed a friend living in the area asking her what has happened. when we turned off the road, leading to the highway, we saw more water. and a car in the water. now we realised that it was bad. we had to turn back into the road and go against the traffic. luckily there were a number of us and we switched on our hazard light and drove slowly, fearing the incoming traffic was fast (highly doubt it...think everyone was in the state of confusion).
we decided to just eat at a nearby mamak. got an sms from the friend, water was up to her waist, her cars were both under water. poor dear...hope her family is ok. i was just at her house 2 weeks ago. amir played with her boys' toys.
we went back to see the area around 5pm. the road was dirty, the shops were dirty and muddy. furniture was put outside on the streets, trees fallen, the water level was still quite high. and it all happened just 5kms away from my house. that's a scary thought. our thoughts and prayers go out to all staying in the area and all who suffered from the flood. be strong and may Allah bless and look after every single one of you. amin.
