The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plains....but in KL...

Here's a surprise I found in Star Online this morning. You know, the I-already-know-but-I-have-to-pretend-that-I'm-surprised-anyway kind of surprise applicable to birthday "surprises". Past 40 you either don't remember your birthday, or you remember to try very hard to forget it. Either way you can't surprise anyone above 40 with birthday arrangements. This is what I'm talking about actually.

"Thousands caught unawares as 2m-high flash floods hit KL". Okay, I am not going to comment on the grammatical error of this Star Online Headline, as mine is not all that great either, because I am after all the product of the Malaysian Education System, although I'm not one of those Nationalistic Chauvinist who'd insist my kids should learn everything in Bahasa Malaysia and refuse to acknowledge that half of Bahasa Malaysia terms are derived from foreign language especially English.

It was my fault because I prayed very hard for the rain to go away from my destination, which was PJ. The sky looked like it was going to fall from KL all the way to PJ at about 4.30pm yesterday. All I did was sing in my prayers "Rain rain go away, come again another day, old Shari's got to work and not play. Please God, make the rain go away". I reached PJ half an hour later and it rained for a bit. Next thing you know, I went out of the clinic half hour later and the sky looked paler than before. That was when I knew ....I was THE ONE....

Okay, jokes aside. What can anyone say about the flash floods in KL? The solution, which happened to be a multimillion ringgit project came out with the Smart Tunnel, unfortunately not smart enough to stay opened during flash flood. It's not like we share the same weather as Saudi Arabia, here check out how much rain Malaysia Kuala Lumpur gets by CLICKING HERE . I don't think there will be any solution for this. The politicians are still busy fighting amongst themselves. It's like the dogs fighting over one particular tree to pee onto, to mark their territory. Disgraceful really. They can't sort themselves up, how on earth are they going to sort the rain...

There will be more of this flash floods folks, "Sediakan bot sebelum hujan" ,the new millenium pepatah Melayu. But the next time it flash floods in KL, act surprised..............and the next day, when it is reported in the local newspaper...act surprised again. That way you get to keep your blood pressure at a relatively normal range.
