Landslide in Bukit Serdang!

So Happening! Road collapses in landslide in Bukit Serdang! Dat's near to where I'm staying! It occurred early in the morning and I was 'blur blur' and went to work as usual. Imagine my state of shock when my maid called me in the office and told me:

Maid: "Mam, tanah sudah runtuh!".
I: "Apa tanah?".
Maid: "Tanah di depan bukit".
I: *thinking* Huh? Is it the hill opposite to where I'm staying? "Mana?"
Maid: "Tanah di depan rumah dua tingkat tu".
I: "Aiyo, dari bukit itu ar, teruk tak"?
Maid: "Mam, bukan dari bukit, itu tanah di jalan. Sangat teruk. Sekarang banyak orang, ada polis, bomba, banyak banyak orang tengok".
I: *thinking* Aiyo, luckily not from the hill. "Habis, apa orang tu buat?"
Maid: "Sekarang saya nampak orang-orang angkat plastik dan guni, tak tau buat apa".
I: *thinking* The workers must be covering the the collapsed area wih the sand bags and plastic sheets.
"Okay, kalau ada apa-apa u cepat-cepat angkat Yau Yau (Des) keluar dari rumah dan JANGAN GUNA LIF, tau?"
Maid: "Aiyo, mam, u jangan takutkan saya".
I: *in order not to frighten her* "Okaylar, saya fikir tak ada apa-apa lar, tapi mesti hati-hati, okay?"

At dat time, I was chatting with Rachel at msn, I told Rachel I was getting worried. She asked me whether I need to go back and check or not. As Pappy was on the way to send some printing works, I told him he might as well go back and check how serious the landslide was. When he reached home, he called and assured dat everything was under control, part of the road and the slope were affected and the surrounding area was oredi cordoned off. I was at ease a little.

So, when we returned home from work, there were people still working around the area until quite late in the nite.

This was taken from the window of my apartment. The effected areas were covered with plastic sheets.

Landslides do happen anywhere and no thanks to those inconsiderate developers and the ministers who'll put the blame on 'Act of God'. *double duh*
