I had to visit Bukit Antarabangsa to check my client's completed project of "Built & Sell" homes which were completed long before the horrifying avalanche. As usual me, so kay poh and went ronda-ronda to comb every road many rounds until the policemen also looked at me suspiciously like a grave digger!
I drove to the site, trembling a bit coz got few people died mah. The tinge of sadness was there as I could imagine how the dwellers of bungalow homes were jolted by the loud crash of earth boulders that fateful day. To stay in high rise is not safe but here landed homes also not safe pula.
They have quickly cleared the debris and cleaned the roads plus opening up alternative routes. I actually love this area coz it has thick virgin forest reserves with heavy mists and fogs every morning and night time or after rains. It is so heavenly to live in this refreshing sanctuary. Years ago, I nearly bought a studio unit condo from our client but didn't managed to. I thank God he made me broke and ill afford to cough up the down payment then.
I also loved those abandoned 3 storey link homes that command the panaromic breathtaking view of the entire greens of the forest reserve. It is like a remaking of the Gardens of Eden picturesque.
Apa itu Eden when all the earth and rumah roboh habis in seconds?!
That was more like Gardens Of HORROR lah!
This is my kawan's rumah and they were spared coz the rumbling earth swept away all his neighbours on the left! After the landslide tragedy, they never moved back to their home!
WHY I ASKED????????
The impact of crumbling earth was so mighty great that it shook their whole house away by 4 inches! Surely lah, no one dare to live inside again as the tiang-tiang might roboh again. So scary wor! Moved by 4 inches, no way can shift back to original 4 inches location. LOL!
Better be safe than sorry!
