Those who follow the news or check on their facebook today, might know that currently Jakarta has been paralysed by the massive flood. Due to the rain which pouring down without stopping, today the city has been paralysed by it. East, South, West and North Jakarta apparently has been flooded since yesterday and the water level has been increasing due to the rain *again*. Currently we’re not affected by the flood but we’re having problem going out because the road surround our place are flooded too and not to mention the heavy traffic to bare!
As we sit and watched news about the incident, we found some photos to share in case some of you interested to know how’s bad the flood which we’ve experienced once in 5 years.

“Jakarta in Emergency Status Until Jan 27; Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo on Thursday placed the entire capital under emergency status following the massive flooding that paralyzed the city.”
Not only that, even our president’s place was flooded with a knee-level of water. This flood seems to be the worst flood compare to the last 2001 & 2007 circle.

Photos above indeed showed how bad the flood is but so far we’re safe in our place except the fact that we need to stock up some necessities [foods, snacks, etc] for the coming weeks. Although Carefour was accessible to us by walking
[basically next door] we can’t be happy yet because it has now turn into our ‘last source’ of surviving!! There’re long queue and we need to ‘fight’ for the INDOMIE !
As you seen here, if you’re late you’re not gonna get anything. For me, I can’t even find a single pack of my Indomie goreng
[got the rest except that flavor thou]
But we got DOMINO’s back! *evil laugh* These are what we got for today. Gotta go back to carefour tomorrow to buy some veggie if not we’re seriously gonna stuck our stomach with indomie for few days!
As for the girls….. they seems HAPPY! lol I don’t think they get the idea that we’re actually in the midst of ‘preparing for the worst’ because they still have their stomach fill even if we as the human need to eat Indomie xD
