I learned something new today.
I learned that if God is upset, He will send down His wrath upon us.
Who said so, you ask?
According to Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, God must have been pretty upset with the way DAP has been managing Penang, hence He sent down 15 hours of torrential rain which caused the worst floods in 20 years, killing seven people and evacuating 6,000 people from their homes.
“It must be a sign from God,” Zahid said at the 46th annual delegates’ conference at the Gerakan headquarters in Cheras.
Looking at the personal tragedies Zahid and his family had gone through lately, I suppose he knows what he is talking about.
Just recently I experienced something similar too - but of course my tragedies were nothing close to his lah.
You see, my mum had spent the entire morning cooking something special for lunch - but I chose to skip lunch and meet some friends for pasembor and cendol without informing her. On my way back home that afternoon, God gave me one of my worst diarrhoea ever.
He was upset, all right...
