Pabila penyu menangis

Pray for those who affected by the flood in Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Perak, Perlis and Kedah and the latest Johor and Negeri Sembilan. May Allah protect them and the rescue team and grant them strength and patience.

I flew to Ganu on 21 Dec. A bit scared and nervous when the plane was shaking after hitting or while passing thru heavy clouds. This was my first flight this year and that MH370 and MH17 tragedies did affect my mind. The following pics show the flood view from the plane

It was drizzling when I left Ganu airport. It was so scary listening to the strong howling wind from night and early morning. The sound of rain bashing against the hotel window made me scared even more. Sleepless first nite in Ganu. Hmm...this was just nothing. Just imagine if we were in the shoes of the flood victim....worry, scare, sad, cold, hungry, disappointment of long awaiting and some may fighting for their life. Survival without/lack of food, without electricity, without water supply, when losing connection, when the road is inaccessible, when it is risky to use boats due to strong water current, when the rescue/supply helis have to turn back due to bad weather condition or no place to land.

On my second day in Ganu it was gloomy, windy and sometimes drizzling and raining in the day. Hmm being a shopaholic I didnt waste any time to go to Pasar Payang after 4pm. The next day I heard the news that Pasar Payang was flooded due to high tide that night. According to the cab driver despite the warning for people to stay away from the beach, yet certain people were excitingly waiting to see this phenomena at the beach.

On my third day there, the gloomy and windy day continued. In the morning the heavy downpour and strong wind sometimes distracted my eyesight from focusing on customers' presentation.

Terbang-terbang dan melayang-layang scarfku, terangkat-angkat kainku sampai ke lutut dan melekat melekap baju di badanku ketika menunggu cab di tempat bertugas, melintas jalan, meronda dan berjalan pulang ke hotel. Tak larat nak cover sana sini dan kempiskan perut. Si Penyu ini mungkin menangis melihat si boroi dan si boncit terkial-kial ....
