I don't want to comment anything more except calling for you all dear readers of this blog to pray for the flood victims in that state as well as those also affected in Kedah and Perak.
No politics, okay.
Amidst the disaster, it's heartwarming to know that the state governments, especially Penang are working well with the federal government to alleviate the suffering of the flood victims.
For that I have to particularly congratulate Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng and Deputy Prime Minister DS Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Guan Eng reaches out to DPM for army's help
|Soldiers evacuating flood victims in Penang today.|
Guan Eng looks especially sincere in this video,
Okay, I wouldn't make fun of him for quite a while after this.
Guan Eng, you bersabar juga ya.
budak2 masuk U bukannya keluar nak bawa UBER. Kalau nak bawa UBER pun kena ada kereta. Kereta Bapak yg dah lebih sepuluh tahun tak bolih nak register UBER. Kalau mcm tu baik pinjam PTPTN utk beli kereta baru sbb bolih buat UBER. Sepatutnya dicipta lebih byk kerja yg berkaitan dgn pendidikan graduan. Bangla gaji 2500 sebulan dgn fresh grad gaji 2500 sebulan tak sama. Bangla makan nasi dgn kuah air campur garam jer. So kerajaan nak graduan ikut cara hidup bangla ker, itu ke maksud kerajaan suruh graduan ubah sikap? krnapa menteri nak hidup mewah tapi rakyat disuruh hidup mcm pendatang asing? adil ke kerajaan yg mcm ni?ReplyDelete

Annie, have you ever blogged “Pray for Kelantan” or “Pray for Terengganu” when those states were inundated with floods?ReplyDelete
Please type FLOOD at the search column of this blog to read my other flood stories. Thank you.Delete
Annie, you pun sabar juga k..Delete
Don't hope for the corrupt thieving UMNO regime to arrest Jho Low. In fact Jho Low dock-in at PD in order to get all the UMNO Ministers and their equally corrupt apparatus chiefs to get on board his cruise ship and line up behind him, then each one of them take turn to kiss his butt.ReplyDelete
Oi...this is flood story, ok. Please la.Delete
Please la wei comment pasal banjir jer. Politics aside. When it comes to rakyat’s safety and well being, politics must be pushed aside. This is above politics..ReplyDelete
Kenapa LGE call Zahid Hamidi? ATM bukan bawah Hisham ke?ReplyDelete
Mungkin LGE amat tertekan, sampai lupa,TENTERA is under Hishamuddin not Zahid. Apa pun, Zahid dapat durian runtuh. Semua blogger Umno cakap Zahid got a big heart 'berjiwa besar' sanggup tolong Lim Guan Eng!Delete
Memang kesian blogger A9 ni -cannot see anything
beyond their nose. Semua harus dipolitikkan sampai lupa, yang dibantu tu rakyat MALAYSIA yang ditimpa musibah. Sebagai Ketua Menteri Peneng, tanggongjawab
Lim Guan Eng ialah memastikan mereka dapat bantuan
yang sewajarnya di bawah Perlembagaan Malaysia.
Bantuan yang diminta, memang hak rakyat Peneng kerana Peneng bukan Bangladesh or Rohingya .
They seem to forget that Penang, Kelantan and Selangor under the constitution is part of Malaysia, therefore whatever yang Lim Guan Eng mintak, memang patut diberi. Malangnya, oleh kerana otak sudah dikuasi politik menebal, bantuan itu terus diwar-warkan sebagai 'Bantuan Kemanusiaan' macamlah Orang Peneng itu bangsa Rohingya. Dan Army, polis and bomba tu kepunyaan Barisan Nasional bukan di bawah perlembagaan Persekutuan patut memberi khidmat
kepada rakyat Malaysia tak kira di bawah pemerintahan
kerajaan BN atu pun bukan BN.
Annie, hope what I have written here is not political. I am just airing my view regarding other bloggers including rockybru, who seems to forget that Peneng is part of Malaysia therefore deserves to get the help from the army, polis and bomba.
Sepatutnya Guan Eng tak perlu minta bantuan dari sesiapa. TV3 juga tak perlu kata Guan Eng hantar SOS ke apa.Delete
Adalah menjadi KEWAJIPAN Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk hantar bantuan dalam bentuk tenaga manusia... sebaik saja diketahui... Kem Sungai Ara kan ada... mesti hantar pasukan penyelamat, dengan heli ke apa, untuk menyelamat mangsa, lebih-lebih lagi yang air naik sampai bumbung, yang terperangkap dalam kereta atau kereta mereka dihanyutkan air deras. Tanpa mengira waktu.
Takkan la Balai Polis tak boleh tolong minta bantuan. Mesti ada anggota beat yang pertama sekali tahu keadaan.
Nota: Saya pun sedih tengok Guan Eng.
Guan Eng thinks Zahid was a more effective Menteri Mindef. Or Guan would want to call cucu pengasas umno.Delete
Sorry about the little politics.
Ini bencana alam.
Masalah saliran di Pulau Pinang ni pun bukan baru. Jadi bila hujan luarbiasa dan angin sekali, musibah la. Tapi bukam Pulau Pinang aje. Seberang Prai, Kedah, Perak pun banjir jugak.
Ada former Komander ATM buat statement memang tak payah call menteri pertahanan pun, ATM sedia bantu sepatutnya.
Anyway, kita semua doa kan banjir cepat surut dan bantuan dipertingkat kan.
Bila musibah melanda we have to put aside our differences and work towards helping those affected by the flood.ReplyDelete
I remember during a big flood in Kelantan a few years back so many NGOs came forward to help.
Kalau kita boleh tolong orang Bosnia,Palestin, Rohingyas dsbnya takkan kita tak boleh tolong sesama rakyat Malaysia.
Good! I wish more fellow members of your Chinese community were like you.
Today you earned your RM15 cybertrooper free.
(But only today.)
Good that Federal is helping.ReplyDelete
After all any part of Malaysia in trouble must be helped by the government of Malaysia.
But learn the lesson from Kelantan, where millions in flood aid were diverted to pockets of Umno leaders.
There should never be profit from human tragedy.
Jgn buat fitnah bro/sis 1028Delete
Ada sistem pengagihan bantuan.bila pindah ke pusat pemindahan kena daftar.ada setengah org yg x jujur cuba amik kesempatan.rumah tak affected by flood tapi daftar juga di pusat pemindahan utk dapat duit bantuan banjir.ramai juga yang kantoi.
Kalau ada bukti duit bantuan banjir masuk poket pemimpin UMNO laporkan ke sprm dgn bukti.
Besar dosa fitnah ni bro.politik politik juga tapi kalau kita orang Islam kita percaya tak terhenti bila kita mati aja.

Dana Mangsa Banjir Kena Songlap - Ahli Wanita UMNO Kelantan Disiasat.
Anak buah mak lembu ke apa? Dana untuk mangsa banjir pun kena songlap.
Ini betul-betul kaki pecah amanah. Punya takde intergriti sampaikan hak orang susah pun depa merembat. Takde ahti perut sungguh.
Seorang ahli Wanita Umno Kelantan, Zaleha Hussin, hari ini dipanggil bagi sesi soal siasat dengan pihak berkuasa anti-rasuah, berhubung dakwaan menyalahguna dana diperuntukkan untuk mangsa banjir negeri itu oleh agensi kerajaan.
Sumber berkata, agensi yang terlibat adalah Yayasan Pembangunan Ekonomi Islam Malaysia (YaPEIM) yang berada di bawah Jabatan Perdana Menteri dan seliaan menteri di jabatan perdana menteri hal ehwal Islam. Ahli Wanita Umno itu dipercayai menjawat jawatan tinggi dalam agensi berkenaan dan kenyataannya direkodkan pada petang Isnin oleh SPRM, kata sumber.
Banjir Kelantan merupakan antara yang terburuk dalam sejarah, menyaksikan 200,000 mangsa dipindahkan. Gila kau. Menjawat jawatan tertinggi.
Bukan tak cukup makan. Terlebih2 makan pun nak songlap juga? Dah la kerja dengan YAPEIM. Slumber haram songlap duit untuk mangsa banjir. Mangsa banjir dah la sampai ke hari neh bukan semuanya menerima rumah baru ataupun terlibat dalam proses pemindahan (disebabkan rumah tak siap lagi).
Siap orang risau2 mungkin akan berlaku musibah banjir lagi. Lahanat sungguh la puak2 UMNO.
Perangai macam celaka! UMNO dengan penyangak, perompak, pencuri, perasuah, pengsonglap memang tak dapat dipisahkan. Like boss like penyokong.
Boss kawtim 2.6b. Takan ahli tak boleh sapu sikit-sikit kot.
Institusi Islam..! Pegawai tinggi Melayu Islam...!
Dosa fitnah pale otak hang. Dosa 1000x lebih besar...songlap wang mangsa banjir tu.
Engko org ni pun. Tengah banjir pun nak gaduh2. Kalau tengah siasat tu belum boleh kata bersalah. Guan Eng pun kena siasat rasuah tapi belum tau bersalah. Macam dia kata kat video tu - kita kena SABAR. Terimakasih.Delete
Biasalah pembangkang.They have nothing good to say about kerajaan.kalau yg rasuah tu kenapa tak laporkan aja pada sprm.that part dia tak nak jawab pulak.Delete
Actually don't ever hope for MACC to do anything about that missing flood money.
Do you think anything will ever happen in these cases:
KJ RM100 million songlap from KBS
Jibbi Tun Songlap
Please lah. You must be naive if you think so. It was just that public anger over FELDA and MARA was so great, they had to put on a show. Nobody will be punished.
Just remember that the last guy was recommended TWICE to be prosecuted by the old MACC before they installed the gatal guy as replacement.
So, that flood relief money is gone.
Even sadder -
- in Kelantan, there were many promises made to build homes to replace those lost in flood waters.
The following Raya, many people were still camping in ruins.
What happened to the money?
I hope this doesn't happen in Penang or elsewhere.
//Things are apparently very bad up north, especially in Penang.//
Yupe, it is really tough for them up in the northern states.
I dunno how it is in Perlis, Kedah and Perak but things in Penang are really bad.
I am reasonably confident that Penang will manage and will pull thru.
//No politics, okay.//
Hm, this is a bit hard for me because what I am about to say does have political implications, sorry.
The floods in Penang are carefully watched by many voters.
First and foremost in their minds is how will Penang address the aftermath of the floods.
We know that states on the East Coast of Semananjung face floods year in year out with little effectiveness from the "work" being done on flood mitigation.
Hell, even a layman like me could think of how to address the problems on the East Coast - dredging, bunds, drainage, planned development are just some measures which I would have thought are important.
And I am a layman with zero experience in this.
Well, we will see.
//especially Penang are working well with the federal government to alleviate the suffering of the flood victims.//
The federal government really does not have a choice but to assist Penang.
If it did not, it would be an international laughing stock for ignoring the plight of one of its states under duress from a natural disaster.
Sorry about the political undertones :(
//Okay, I wouldn't make fun of him for quite a while after this.//
I'll bet that LGE is grateful that you are off his back for a while.
I am not that forgiving.
I have great expectations for LGE to show us that he is the one of the best state administrators in Malaysia, as I believe him to be.
I, for one, will be watching how he handles this emergency, and just as importantly, what he does AFTER the emergency.
I want to know the steps he will be taking to prevent a re-occurrence, I want to see the implementation of any new policies and I will be waiting for the next deluge to prove him right or wrong.
IF LGE succeeds in this humungous task, he can stand proud and tall - just for this one, OK? :)
Incidentally, I suspect that LGE will do everything to succeed because he has a point to prove - that DAP is good for Penang.
Hopefully, this emergency will make other states sit up and take notice - the monsoon season is nearly upon us and I expect there will be floods again as usual in the eastern states as it has been for the last 40-50 years, maybe more.
What can we expect to see next year?? In Penang?? In Kelantan?? In Terengganu??
Again, I apologise for any politics in the above :(
Many are denied access to comment in your blog so this is that ball less media social dumno using mcmc to deny access to anti BN critics...ReplyDelete
anywhere i go or work, money triumphs everything. less moral more money.ReplyDelete
hence every development every new housing area is done out of greed not necessity. seriously, just how many of us can afford 600k house ? those who can afford it is not majority.
this is happening in kl, perak and hell in perlis or kedah if theres enough demand for greed.
what we are seeing now is preview. flood is getting bad in kl, worst in penang. its gonna get worst. plus our policy is wait for something to happen. then menggelabah. we never once been proactive. to predict and curb the problem.
it cant just be climate.
everywhere i go where theres green, will soon be replaced with concretes.
ive been seeing this for years.
blame the developers ? nope. blame the authorities ? nope. my guess is they are all in it together.
it all comes down to corruption ! im sick of these. they got the dirty money and live happily, us rakyat has to pay for the consequences
maybe like in german we need a grün Partei. no bullshit politics but just for the environment.
Frankly speaking, aku tak sangka si LGE ni..with humble 'put up' this video asking for help from ZH..
Politically it can minus his mileage yet the people comes first..

//it cant just be climate.//
No, it is not the climate.
The flooding we see is a direct result of human activity.
More specifically, human activity which has made changes to the environment.
//blame the developers ? nope. blame the authorities ? nope. my guess is they are all in it together.//
Actually, I blame the authorities and the authorities alone.
We, the common folk, trust the authorities to manage the affairs of state for us and they have failed us.
I had originally thought that Penang authorities alone were to be blamed for the floods but to my surprised, flood mitigation seems to be under the federal government according to the following article.
So, why the f*&k is there still flooding if over RM1billion have been spent by the federal govt?
And why the f^%k is the Penang government approving building developments which overload flood mitigation efforts?
Don't the state govt and the federal govt talk to each other and ensure that they know what each other is doing?
As a layman, I don't really care if it is a DAP-led state govt and an UMNO-led federal govt, but isn't there any engineering data which clearly lay out what is what??
Is there any real flood mitigation work being done by the federal govt?
Does the state govt care whether the flood mitigation work is carried out to spec and can handle development and population growth in that state?
Somebody is taking us, the rakyat, for a ride.
I have my suspicions on who it is but I'll leave it to others to figure it out for themselves.
Please take into consideration why other states govts like Kelantan and Terengganu seem to suffer flooding every year.
its all about money, be damned with the people. who cares if theres flood.Delete
id still blame both sefes. when corruption happens both sides are guilty.
in a world where cash is king, this is how it is. corporate assassinations, illegal drugs tested in Africans region,
and in a local scale we witness this bullshit in penang, kl and other parts of msia.
we should brace ourself. disaster will be a common thing in msia. climate is changing, but with proper management we could do something about this.
But i said proper. and this is malaysia where corruption triumphs over everything else.
we used to be dignified, but no more.
So, what happen to the rm1.04 billion, Gladiator....????
I doubt it, if it is given to the Peneng Government.
Most probably the 1.04 billion has disappeared just
like the rm2.67 billion supposed to be paid to Al-Abrar Foundation
//what happen to the rm1.04 billion//
Well, according to the Natural Resources and Environment Minister, Wan Junaidi, the money has been spent in Penang.
I guess Wan Junaidi is the best person to answer that as it seems to come under his ministry.
Digging longkangs is an expensive business you know...
Cangkuls with diamond-encrusted handles are not cheap, OK?
Stupid people like us with no engineering expertise have no idea and should listen to the experts, OK?
//disappeared just like the rm2.67 billion supposed to be paid to Al-Abrar Foundation//
Oh, that RM2.67billion?
That was a donation from a Saudi prince... eeerrr.... sorry ...sorry.. wrong RM2.67billion.. sorry ..
Eeerrr... RM2.67billion??? ... hmmmmmm.... let me think ...
There was RM2.67billion paid to the fake Aabar BVI which nobody seems to be chasing up and trying to get back, then there was the RM2.67billion which the London arbitration said had to be paid to the REAL Aabar, then there is the penalty to be paid for missing out on the payments... no.. the penalty didn't come up to RM2.67billion ... or did it? ... I dunno.. I forgot...
Sooooo many RM2.67billion...
Now.. where was that phone number for Jho Low...
"Cangkuls with diamond-encrusted handles are not cheap, OK?"Delete
And they are pink diamonds, too, even more expensive.
Now...where was that phone number for Jho Low...
