No one had expected that this season's monsoon finally turned Kota Bharu streets into instant waterways, exactly like it used to be 10 years ago, with water level ranging from ankle deep to chest-deep ..
And not only the town of Kota Bharu but the entire East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia region is currently submerged by flood water. And today, after the river began to overflow yesterday afternoon, at Kota Bharu, the locals took to the flooded streets, emptied from cars by advancing flood water, for a rare, once every few years, muddy water fiesta !
Even the hawkers joined the fiesta ! Some even cruised the "waterways" with boats.. emm.. how "Venice" like ! :->
