a while later... i noticed.... the road we came from just now.. had converted into a River... omg... can you imagine how heavy is there rain right now? half of the tire gone.

and this is the advantage of driving 4x4 car..

few hours later, about 3am.. the rain stop.. and the flash flood also faded.. leaving the road look like a sea surface..  mud and sand everywhere..
