it was a bit of a shock when our facebook friends based in singapore started posting status updates about orchard road flooding; then later, posting photos and videos from news websites and blogs. some even posted their own actual photos and videos! it happened just as ondoy did: nonstop rain for hours. well, if flash floods can happen in the US, france, and other first-world countries, it was only a matter of time before it happened in singapore.
check out these photos we took last november 2008:
and this is what these very same places looked like earlier today!!!
