Friday The 13th
It was March 2009, Friday the 13th
Second day at my new workplace
Ayah called around 3.30pm -
"kalau boleh balik, balik lah...umah banjir ni"
"hah? apaaaa?? alamak..
ayah tolong lah alih komputer orang eh
sama cd-cd ngan dvd tu"
- I frantically replied and wondering how the hell
my house can be affected by flood
"aa yelah..ni air tengah naik pon ni...
orang lepas air dam (reservoir) kot"
- ayah replied sounding really calm.
I'm really mad.
sure it was raining heavily a day before
but the first and last time we had flood was 16 years ago...
I was standard 4 that time
I asked permission from my lady boss and rushed back home
I supposed to meet my big boss at 4.00pm
sorry boss, family first!
Arrived around 4.15pm
I had to park 200m away from my house.
it's already flooded up till 2 feet.
I rushed into my room to save whatever i can
but Ayah did a really good job saving all my junks
we're waited for 2 hours to watch the water level.
thank God the water didn't rise more than 2 feet
It slowly decreased by 9pm...
My room filled with water
Umi & ayah still smiling & cracking jokes
The funny thing is, Umi cooked for dinner!
and for the next 2 days we were working our ass off
cleaning the house filled with mud & even small fish!
It's a freaking tiring experience for us
a whole lotta thanks to Neesa & Farez for being there
helping us cleaning the living room.
and it's definitely a month that i'll always remember
for everything bad, sad & mad happened that month!
I can say it's a bit of a downfall for me.
However, wise man said...
behind every cloud there's a silver lining...
well it's quite true cuz we found Jebat during the disaster
the white owl from Hogwarts
get lost in Hulu Langat during flood...ngeee
Isn't he adorable?
well i just name him Jebat since he loves to stare
at people & become defensive if you come closer.
and his feet has this sharp-razor claws or nails
or whatever they call it...
just like keris...
Actually i'm not sure it a he or a she though...
But he's our love & joy during the flood.
The good thing that cheer us all
penat-penat lap rumah,
lari jap tengok jebat tido dalam kotak...
But he's not with us for long
2 weeks after that...
Umi saw 2 owls at our backyard
and that's the last time we see him in the box.
me & jebat
Whatever it is...
It's an outstanding experience i had this year.
Hope I will not experience flood again...
but deep down i wish Jebat will stop by at our house
once in a while..
u know just to say hi.
