Flood of memories

I'm interrupting my usual impresonal photoblog with some news.

I'm sure most Malaysians would have heard of it, but for those not from my country, several states in Malaysia (Kelantan, Terengganu, Perlis and Kedah) were hit by major floods a couple of days ago, including my hometown of Jitra, in the state of Kedah.

The Muda dam overflowed due to the heavy rain this past week and the flood is pretty bad, but luckily there has been no loss of life as yet in my hometown. My parents are okay (they were -- and still are -- holidaying in Cameron Highlands as I write this), and my house, which is on pretty high ground, has so far been spared.

Anyway, I was not there to record the events, but if you're interested, you can check out some pictures taken by my good friend Joe, who is still stranded there right now (my hometown is now an island, at least till the waters recede).
