Paddle Pop Parliament

It is not as rare or unusual as one would think, I photographed the occurrence of fire rainbows or rainbow clouds in our skies a couple of times previously.

Here’s a picture of the one I saw next to our Parliament Building in November 2015.

Memories Of Sweet Sekinchan

On the top of the montage is a picture I think I took in the summer of 2012. Green green grass, sunshine, blue sky and fluffy clouds. On the bottom is the shocking view from yesterday after monsoonal rain. The beleaguered tree has what looked like pomelo fruits growing out of it.

Flooded Sekinchan

Prolonged rainfall last night turned the flooded rice fields into a landscape resembling that of a sea. I asked a farmer if the planted paddy crop will be affected. He thinks not as lowland paddy can survive waterlogged conditions.

The distant building is a ,”bird hotel”. Farmers and land owners supplement their income by harvesting the nests of swifts.

Disappointment

After wading through flood waters, a little girl found her favourite convenience store at a petrol station closed.

The water has receded and you can see the mud stains on the wall indicating it was twice her height.

According to her mother, their kampung house nearby was flooded to the roof and everything was destroyed.

The intermittent sunshine laid bare the surreal aftermath of the less-publicised but equally destructive floods in Termeloh and other Central Pahang towns.

More pics to follow.
