    Guess where i'm typing this from?
    Now i'm at the Evacuation Point (they use school hall), which is located at Southern of Malaysia (South East Asia). Continuous rain in the past few days flooded many parts of (Malaysia). The worst flood in 100 years...

    And guess what is the first thing that i grab when the rescue team come?
    Three things: My laptop, Handphone, the chargers..(ohh ya, and my stupid broadband modem)

    A man still need to feed his family right?
    I still need to check my backlink, the BH stuff that need to do, my email and other income related stuff. During the rescue team come, i cant think of anything and that 3 things pop-up in my mind. (F#%* i left all my certificate and other documents).

    Because i already can expect and estimate how much the total of losses (furniture, household, my 42' SONY LED TV!) in case the rain continues. Hence i really need this laptop... What will you do/grab if you in my place?? Plus Chinese New Year is around the corner.

    To those people who expecting my PM and Skype chat, please do expect some delay. I may leave the laptop on (while my liltle sister playing the farmville) but i may not be in front of the laptop to chat answer any Skype as i need to lend some hand to others.

    Just to share with you guys on some picture taken by my brother.

    EDIT: NO..NO..NO..i'm not looking for sympathy or even donation. I have few business thread/post open, so i just want to update them in case they are waiting for my PM. Hence i post this here instead of replying to all of them or putting the status in my Skype :)

    Your brother can fly?

    -EDIT-

    Nope, not trying to be sarcastic. What I meant was, he could fly via helicopter at that flood?

    I'm not trying to make a joke on your situation mate. I experienced that too, last year (last last year) there was a major flood in the Philippines. And it was hell for us.

    Sorry to hear about your situation, I know it's a very difficult time. At least you and your family are safe, material things can be replaced. Stay safe and keep us updated on your situation.

    I'm from Malaysia too. But in the city center of Kuala Lumpur.
    Its heavy rain here too but everything is still under control.

    To the rest who think that OP might try to get some sympathy post or etc, think again.
    The southern region will always hit by flood whenever there is a heavy rain.
    I have a relative there too and i really pray to God that everything going to be back as normal soon.

    To OP, if you are Chinese, be brave and hopefully this Chinese New Year going to be a new beginning for a better life for you and your family.

    That blog contains the exact same picture |BlackMarket| claims was taken by his brother. Only it's from 2007. And the last photo seems from 2006.

    I am curious, what are the odds that an "Evacuation Point" has internet? It would be kind of hard to keep the electricity up in the first place.

    Please don't use natural disasters to your own benefit, whatever it may be.

    Just a word of caution.
