in the time of flood

that’s the way to start the year..
trapped by the flood in an electricity-less house , no phone no lights, lucky we got some foods and water.

the house i was staying in stood facing the highway and toll road so there were so much going on down there that i could observe from the 4th floor balcony; the traffic on the road was dominated by various make-shift rafts and boats, the highway was half deserted, lined with broken vehicles and helpless drivers.

funny, at the other part of jakarta things went on as usual, not affected by flood at all. you went to work as usual, you drove your car and not a raft made of crates, you could make a phone call and tweet and blog and take a nice shower without worrying what would happen if you run out of water tomorrow. anyway, i managed to leave the flooded neighborhood on the third day before we ran out of our sanity. god is so good. hopefully there will be no more heavy rain that resulted in flood and no more unnecessary victims being swept away by the water.
