I'm stuck for the past two days at a relative's house in Klang, perhaps the worst-hit by the floods.
Don't dare to try going home as I heard that the highways out of here had been cut off by flood water.
Reports indicated that the situation is quite bad, with over 11,000 already evacuated as I'm writing this.
I'm also quite frustrated because my phone line had been quite erratic, causing me not being able to make calls to inform my family of my situation.
This could be quite sticky if I'm in an emergency in the middle of this flood as I can't make a call for help.
It also kept switching from 4G to 3G, making access to internet quite hard.
Yesterday, I went to the nearbyAeon Big supermarket in Jalan Kapar to buy food supply but was not allowed in as I can't access MySejahtera.
Really pissed off about that.
By the way, I'm using the relatively good Samsung Note 10 Plus, so that I don't think it's the phone's fault.
My aunt in Puchong told me that she was also having the same problem.
I suspect that the telcos were at it again, fooling around with their 3G and 4G platforms.
I expect these sort of problems will continue if they are to be given the 5G rollout project.
I really don't understand why some people keep harping on the DNB being given the project to improve the country's connectivity.
The other day, Anwar and his Pakatan people like that Fahmi guy of Lembah Pantai made so much noise in Parliament over the matter.
They among others talked about DNB being a vehicle for cronies to make money.
That's quite rich for someone like Anwar, who while in power with Umno back in the 90s kept a kennel of cronies himself.
Dr Mahathir, as the then Umno president had to even put the list of Anwar's cronies (along with his and others) outside the Umno general assembly hall to shut up the guy from barking about the matter.
Yup, Anwar had been talking about everyone's cronies since back then, while at the same time practiced the very same thing.
He really should follow Dr Mahathir's philosophy on this one - cronies will always be there in one form or another to make profits, just make sure their works benefit the people.
Anyway, in case you all didn't notice, the anti-DNB guys trying to get the 5G project for themselves also were said to include household cronies such as Vincent Tan, Ananda Krishnan and Mokhzani Mahathir.
Personally, I don't mind these cronies and their telcos getting the project as long as they can offer the same or better deal than what DNB is offering - mainly cheaper services and better connectivity, especially in the rural areas.
The problem is that they have been raking tonnes of money from us all these years while giving us crappy services.
Just look at the way they now messed up the handling of the 3G and 4G platforms.
I almost throw my phone on the wall yesterday because of that.
Ya, and I'm still sore that village kids had to climb trees to get connectivity for their online classes.
Oh, Anwar and his gang also talked about DNB being potentially another 1MDB.
That's really stretching the bullshit a little bit too far.
The whole thing had been done on open tender la, okay.
Anyway, I'm glad that Ericsson got the job instead of Huawei, which was among the main bidders.
I believe that if Huawei had got it, then the communists may be able to have access to my phone and other devices.
Seriously, I do fear that they then may be able to shut down this blog remotely from Beijing because of my pro-Taiwan stance.
Okay, I know mine is just an insignificant blog but with the communist in Beijing, anything could happen.
Eh, enough lah.
I need to try find food supply somewhere now.
Don't know when this flood is going to end.
Stay safe guys.
