When it rains, it pours

Traffic jam during rain at the Rothman circle in Section 19, Petaling Jaya

When it rains, it pours. It's not too bad at other times as it cools the hot weather in Malaysia. But at rush hour then so sorry-lah! Traffic congestion!


Worst! I have to traverse the out dated traffic circle which cannot cope with heavy traffic. Even now I'm sitting in the car listening to some music and still can tap tap on my mobile phone and spill in a nice little blog to kvetch and bemoan about the unmoving vehicles. That's how bad it is.


Looks like i'll be stuck here for awhile. Half hour at the very least. The problem with traffic circle the cars that want to get out are blocked by cars that want to get it.


End result? No one moves. My policy for traffic circle is get in quick, get out quick coz getting stuck in one is not particularly fun.


Usually we have a traffic warden to direct traffic during rush hour but with the downpour the traffic police is clearly absent from his duty. Can't blame him. But it leaves us commuter pretty much smoking away in our vehicles.


Hah! I could blog longer judging at this standstill. Them the breaks for going back just after the thunderstorm. Should have just braved the rain earlier but driving with your pants wet is not comfortable. Ya, the rain was so heavy even with an umbreall you would still get wet. So it was either get wet or get stucked. And I opt for the latter.


No matter, I had the good sense of having my dinner first before embarking on the tedium of immobile traffic.


Patience, man patience... It will come to pass eventually
