bangkok floods

oh man. sukhumvit was flooded like a bitch this evening.

i don’t recall the last time it flooded this bad. maybe sometime in ’99

i remember in the mid-80s to late-80s sukhumvit used to flood so bad and we couldn’t get to school in sukhumvit 15. and we’d have flood days, which pretty much meant no school.

thought the drainage system would’ve been sorted out by now. guess not.

i heard the chao phraya is overflowing. yowza. that’s river is so dirty.

i had to run from the pacific building onto the bts, which is probably like 15 metres, but ankle high in flood water. by NANA. triple ew? all the fucking diseases around there. ick. .

put on my thinking cap, ran to 7-11 in the old pacific building bought two litres of water, hiked up my slacks, and ran across to the the bts, once i was ontop, i just washed my feet with the water i bought.

damn should’ve just driven there instead of leaving the car in emporium.

is kinda freaky, went to see al gore’s ‘inconvenient truth‘ at lido the other day. (excellent excellent documentary, i recommend this to everyone) and now this. scary.

    Also it seems that Rama 4 and Siam Square was turned into a new waterpark.

    I’m supposed to come to Bangkok on business from October 25 to 28. Any update on the status of the flooding?
