Finally, after biting more than I could chew, I'm now in Kuala Lumpur again. Pasir Kumpal in Dungun was severely flooded and I along with a few others - two professors, two reporters from The Star and another volunteer - in the end were marooned there and later evacuated by PERHILITAN
; Malaysian Department of Wildlife and National Park (tag)
. Will tell you later of my crazy story. If you don't have the patience for it, visit Pelf's blog
. She's a friend I made at Pasir Kumpal. Her entries will give you some picture of what happened there. I've also added her into my blogroll.
Also, this post is dedicated to PERHILITAN
. Especially rangers Encik Adnan and Encik Ibrahim that took care of us - in effect, saving our lives from a major flood - and to Encik Ghazali, the department state deputy director for evacuating me all the way to Kuala Terengganu from Dungun. Not forgetting, the locals, including Rosli and Pak Long that were helpful in my time of need.
This is for PERHILITAN
; for all the good works they're doing for the environment. And for evacuating us to safety!
For now, I totally need to get some rest.
The picture was taken from the side of PERHILITAN's PAJERO?
Don't what happened but whatever it was I'm very happy to hear that you survived it in tact.
Please do an better job of looking after yourself, Old Bean.
