Yesterday I drove nearly 3 hours getting to and back from Hulu Kelang via the MRR2. If anyone needs further proof that our road system and planning is crazy, please go take a cruise along the MRR2. Heavy monsoon rain or not, the ins and outs are so badly implemented, creating countless bottlenecks that don’t make sense.
We also spotted one of these phony Syabas water pipes that dot Cheras’ skyline…
That monstrosity sits atop a Syabas water storage tank; the entire structure must be more than 2 times the height of most buildings in Cheras. I can’t begin to describe how ridiculous the whole thing is.

Before the drive to Hulu Kelang, I was at Lucky Loke @ SS3 waiting for KY to have his late lunch. It was raining heavily when I reached, and it progressively got worse. Suddenly a few customers dashed outside because…
We saw some people at a house further down the road trying their best to keep the flooding in their house at a minimum level.
I read that Kg. Chempaka got the worse of it. Luckily the rain wasn’t so bad today.
On Friday evening, I was driving home taking my usual route when I realised that I could be very well and truly fucked. It was raining fell beasts and the road in front of me was flooded. I had no choice but to keep going; at one point I could feel the water swirling underneath my car. Two things that kept playing in my mind were:
1) “Remember to keep pressing the gas pedal if you are ever stuck in a flood… this is to keep the water out of the exhaust pipe,” said Dad a few years ago.
2) I didn’t renew my flood insurance for this year.
