My honest opinion, this thing is so embarrassing! I saw it on the CNN, CBS, you name it. So sad looking at the flood in Jakarta. I guess it's about bloody time for the government to take this seriously. After all the disasters, like the missing of Adam Air, Bird flu, I thought to myself.. GOD, I think flood is next, because it's rainy season in Jakarta right now. And, guess what?! It happened!!! It's flooding. If I a peasant, can say or think about it before it happened, why wouldn't they be prepared about this, then? (The government and the people who resides in Indonesia) After all, it's not like the first time. All I heard, this is the worst flood they have ever had. I wish you all Indonesians and the people in Jakarta well, for I long to see my city where I was born.

O my Lord.. what did the Queen of Spain say about Jakarta, then?! lol I hope she landed on the top of the roof in one of those high buildings in Jakarta, instead of the airport Cengkareng. hahaha. Yup, I was born in Jakarta, our beloved city of Indonesia. I really wish you all the best, the citizens who live in Jakarta right now.

I see. I hope Aceh is alright nowadays, knowing it's being governed by some authority (ex GAM), if I am not mistaken?! Hope no more flooding in Jakarta, for I've heard there's a possibility of another flood (banjir susulan, so they mentioned).

Well well well. do you know that flood is not only the main threats but also tornados. a Tornados just happen a few days ago in Cinere. so you're in jakarta right? where do you live? Are you also refuging because of the flood? So where do you live before going to jakarta? What makes you want to live in jakarta? even i got sicked at jakarta after 18 years so decided to try to live in bandung. Well if bandung goverment doesn't want to take action to manage the city, it will end up like jakarta. This all because our selfishness and the goverment is stupid about when money involve and not thingking about the future :)

Every year, DKI Jakarta was always natural flooding. And every year the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta does not get the accusations of a variety of tasty sides including Jakarta residents themselves. However, the concept of flooding in Jakarta, takes time. In addition to the problem is quite complicated, it should also consider the budget issue. Therefore, dealing with flooding in Jakarta is not easy. residents of Jakarta, is also less support, the effort Pemprov DKI Jakarta in tackling the flood problem is the trash, such as municipal waste and to build houses near the river, causing constriction.
