A couple days ago I posted this photo on Instagram…
Yeah, it was me. I wasn’t trying to show you my pair of Skechers. I was trying to show you my bare feet in 3 inches of water.
Why? Because after weeks of scorching heat, the sky gods decided it was appropriate to give us 3 days of continuous rain and downpour.
Here, let me raise my camera angle and show you the actual situation.
And maybe a sideways angle.
Lucky for me, I was parked in another parking area. Cars here were centimeters away from being screwed big time when I was wading my way past. And it was still raining at that time.
We’re a difficult bunch to please, aren’t we? Malaysians? Give us sunshine we complain. Give us rain we also complain. Apa lagi Malaysians mahu (What more do Malaysians want)??
I have to admit, I was pretty annoyed and frustrated that I had to take off my shoes and socks and wade into 3 inches of water across 100 yards of cement and tarred surface, bare footed. Gave me blisters afterwards.
But… as much as I would like to rant and bitch nonstop about it, I realize I shouldn’t. Because, could be worse…
Could be this, for example.
Three inches of water is probably what people would call a “first world problem”.
Gosh, I hope it would remain a first world problem and won’t worsen and become an actual problem like what happened in most parts of Malaysia a couple years ago.
