Curse of the Nature: floating woods on the Rajang River 拉讓江的浮木:大自然的詛咒

拉讓江上游,据稱是支流之一的巴蕾河,一場大水將堆積在江邊的木桐,木梢,雜木,以及無數棄置的腐爛樹木,一併沖向下游,造成整條拉讓江被這一堆木頭所覆蓋,影響水上交通達好幾公里.
這場大自然的浩劫,驚動整條拉讓江沿岸居民,包括布拉甲,加帛,桑,加拿逸,如仙,詩巫.
在詩巫,由于伊干江支流的流水比較急,這堆木頭朝伊干江而下,避開了民丹莪和泗里街.
這堆木頭數公里長,在詩巫江面流過時,都要用去超過2個鐘頭.想想看,情況有多嚴重.
if you think this is a disaster, then it is. needless to say, this is the curse of mother nature. human cut down so many trees upstream of the Rajang River, and left behind all these pieces of wood, a big current sweep the whole lot of them to down river, causing panic to the water transport. the whole stretch estimated a few kilometers, takes more than 2 hours just passing by Sibu.

does this look like "octopus"? 八爪魚風箏,夠特別吧?
一堆籃子掛在天空.

砂拉越本土風箏好手葉先生,每次都忘了他的大名.他的老兄是聯合日報斯里阿曼辦事處主任兼記者,甲必丹葉國記.
這個是甚麼風箏來的?好怪.

這群”鬼怪”突然在放風箏的地點出現,還以為是”風箏怪人”.有這號人物嗎?
