Pics taken last night along Jalan Gadong. It was raining cats and dogs last night, but yours truly decided to go out on a quick errand… Baaaad mistake! My “adventure” began when I was on my way home from Jerudong. Was caught in a ridiculous jam along Jalan Jerudong due to flash flooding.

Waited for about an hour or so before deciding to turn back and try my luck on the highway. Highway was ok but as soon as I got onto Jln Tungku, there were pockets of flooding all along the road as well. Thankfully, I made it through without much drama and got onto the freeway heading towards Jalan Gadong, Beribi.

Suasana sungguh meriah! All kinds of jam came to mind.. strawberry, plum, lemon, orange! It puts the daily rush hour to shame! All cars were literally parked on the road waiting for the flood water to recede….

Finally after another hour or so, traffic started moving again, thanks to the traffic cops on duty, as Maurina agrees. All in all, what should have been a quick 30 minute trip became a 3 hour adventure!

I didn’t remember to take pics until the last leg of my “adventure” but here they are. More pics here and here.

AB, last night in Lumut-Sungai Liang area it was terrible. I had to wait like 2 1/2 hours later to go back to my simpang waiting for the flood water to subside and once we reached home, it didn’t even help that there was no electricity! Crazy! Didn’t wanna go through the flood unlike some steady cars. Sayang my car. Hehe
