By now, everyone should have heard about the flooding in Brunei. It was dubbed as the worst disaster Brunei has ever seen in recent years.
Pictures are courtesy of bruneimotors.comAs far as the rumors circulate around me, there were only 2 deaths. May they rest in peace.Brunei is well known among its people for having been the safest place on Earth. Among the South China Sea border countries, only Brunei was able to survive the Tsunami! Heck, it didn't even touch Brunei! The neighbour countries got the full blast of it instead.Anyways, after all these safe years since the Independence, Bruneians have grew up to be a proud race.I once heard an auntie saying, "Take that you Indonesians! Steal our bikes again la!" commenting about the Tsunami. Ok, maybe an Indo did steal her bike; but she shouldn't generalised the whole thing by cursing every Indonesians just because of that one thief. It's such a racial statement.The locals love to credit themselves for being sinless. That's why there has been no major disasters in recent years.It's funny how people, typically the senior citizens, think about this recent flooding.
There's this auntie (not related to the earlier auntie I mentioned) who said, "You know why got flood? You don't know?? I tell you why. That day ah my sister went for X-Ray mah. She saw this old doctor flirting with a young nurse! How sinful! That's why got flood la!"
Apparently flirting can cause flood. Be careful people! :p
