Harvey: Before And After Photos Of Catastrophic Houston Flood

29 08 2017

Hurricane Harvey which made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 storm on August 25, caused “epic and catastrophic” flooding especially in Houston and some other parts of Texas.

Floodwaters are expected to rise further in the inundated Houston as the flood situation in Texas is expected to worsen in the coming days.

Below are some before and after photos of the flood caused by Hurricane Harvey taken from Yahoo! News and The Guardian.

Lim Guan Eng v. Donald Trump: Siapa Yang Dungu?

28 08 2017

Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, Lim Guan Eng baru-baru ini telah membuat satu kenyataan yang kasar terhadap Presiden Amerika Syarikat, Donald Trump, dengan mengatakan bahawa Presiden Trump itu adalah seorang yang ‘dunggu’ dan menambah walaupun ada peluang, beliau tidak mahu berjumpa dengan Presiden Amerika Syarikat itu kerana “jumpa orang macam ini, kita sendiri jadi bodoh”.

Apakah benar Lim Guan Eng tidak akan berjumpa dengan Presiden Amerika Syarikat itu yang dikatakannya sebagai “seorang yang rasis, seorang yang kolot dan seorang yang tak hormati pendidikan” jika diberi peluang?

Seterusnya, Lim Guan Eng mempertikaikan pemilihan Trump sebagai presiden oleh rakyat Amerika Syarikat dengan berkata, “…tapi sayapun tak tahu macam mana dia boleh dipilih menjadi presiden”.

Ada dua perkara tentang kenyataan ini yang mahu saya sentuh:

  1. Seseorang pemimpin mesti menghormati dasar diplomatik negara dan Lim Guan Eng sebagai seorang Ketua Menteri tidak boleh dengan sesuka hati menghina dan memburukkan pemimpin negara lain, apatah lagi seorang Presiden. Jika pemimpin negara lain mengatakan bahawa Guan Eng itu dungu, saya pasti beliau akan tersangat marah dan membuat kenyataan balas terhadap perkara itu.
  2. Sebutan perkataan dungu adalah seperti ejaannya iaitu ‘dungu’ dan bukannya ‘dunggu’ seperti yang disebut berulang kali oleh Lim Guan Eng. Lim Guan Eng adalah seorang rakyat Malaysia yang telahpun hidup di Tanah Melayu ini selama hampir 55 tahun, takkanlah sebutan Bahasa Melayunya pun belum betul lagi. 

Saya tidak faham keperluan Lim Guan Eng ‘mendunggukan’ Presiden Trump, tetapi jangan kerana terlalu seronok ‘mendunggukan’ orang lain membuatkan beliau sendiri yang nampak dungu.

Persoalan seterusnya ialah, apakah orang yang tidak memahami dan menghormati protokol layak menjadi seorang pemimpin negara?





Photos: Hurricane Harvey Downgraded To Category 3 As It Made Second Landfall

26 08 2017

Rain is blown past palm trees as Hurricane Harvey makes landfall, Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Harvey intensified into a hurricane Thursday and steered for the Texas coast with the potential for up to 3 feet of rain, 125 mph winds and 12-foot storm surges in what could be the fiercest hurricane to hit the United States in almost a dozen years.

About three hours after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 storm, it was downgraded to a Category 3 storm as it made a second landfall on the northeastern shore of Copano Bay after winds decreased to 125 mph from maximum sustained winds of 130 mph.

Earlier, the National Hurricane Center said the Category 4 Hurricane Harvey made landfall Friday night on the Texas coast between Port Aransas and Port O’Connor at around 10 pm local , with very strong winds of 130 mph, bringing up to 13 feet of storm surge, large, destructive waves and very heavy rain.

At the time, the storm’s eye was 30 miles away from the coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas causing power outrages in the city and nearby towns.

Harvey is the first Category 4 hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Hurricane Charley hit Florida in 2004.
 
Forecasters predicted that the slow-moving storm will dump heavy rain on South Texas and parts of Louisiana until the middle of next week, where some places could receive as much as 40 inches.
 
Catastrophic flooding is expected, including in inland areas as river water levels rise.

24 08 2017

The first few minutes of my speech.

On the 21st of August, I was invited for an hour of ‘sharing session’ with students from the SMK Tan Sri Mohamed Rahmat in Kempas, Johor Bahru as part of Muafakat Pendidikan Johor’s ‘Jelajah Kemerdekaan’ program.

I am very honoured and very happy to be invited and I would love to thank the Principle, Puan Rusaini Ahmad, the YDP and the president of Muafakat Pendidikan Johor, Cikgu Mohd Ridhwan Othman, the teachers and students of the SMK Tan Sri Mohamed Rahmat for having me at the school.

I talked about the history and the formation of Malaysia, the basic history, principals and sovereignty of our country as well as a brief introduction of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

It was an awesome experience for me as it was my first solo program. 

Below are photos of the event taken by both my father and my elder sister Aeshah Adlina.
