The flood that hit the nation last weekend has destroyed so many homes and turned so many lives upside down. The amount of homes affected and possessions lost were immeasurable.
The magnitude of the flood has affected even celebrities, and we can see them posting on their respective social media accounts cleaning up their homes after the flood, or having to relocate. Here are some of Malaysian celebrities that we know who were directly affected by the flash flood:
1) Shila Amzah
NurShahila binti Amir Amzah or better known as Shila Amzah happened to be one of the celebrities whose home was badly hit by the flood and having to relocate her family, including her son, Seth Uwais and her adopted daughter, to another location. This singer-songwriter who is popular in China, shocked everyone through her Instagram post from a couple of days ago (21st December) breaking the news that she was filing for a divorce against her husband, Haris Idraki Elias. Fans certainly did not see this coming.
2) Zaiton Sameon
The iconic Malaysian veteran singer, Zaiton Sameon, was hit by the flood too. Although, the revelation was slightly different. She is known to always have a positive attitude, and it’s no different this time around. Despite being affected by the flash flood, Zaiton Sameon still grabbed the chance to entertain her fans on TikTok with a video of her floating on top of a rubble in the flood while lip-synching to her song, “Kabut Serangkai Mawar”.
3) Asfarina Muhamad
Better known as As Feminin, this singer of the 90s Malay pop girl group, was affected by the flash flood too. She mentioned how grateful she was that her husband and youngest (autistic) son were not home when her home in Hulu Langat got flooded. She stated how it would be extremely dangerous for her son as he would not know the difference between the flood and swimming pool. They have temporarily relocated to a hotel until the situation gets better.
4) Lan Solo
The singer of the Malay rock band, Kristal, witnessed his home in Puchong affected by the flash flood. He had been updating his Instagram on the progress of the flood from the day it happened. We can see how the water level went from his ankle on the 18th of December, up to waist-level the next day. His house is currently in a better condition, although the cleaning process is still ongoing.
5) Yusof Haslam
The vacation home of Yusof Haslam, the “Gerak Khas” series director, in Hulu Langat was affected badly by the flash flood. The fences that surrounded the house were all swept away by the water. The furniture and electrical appliances inside his home were also ruined, while half of it were covered in mud. The repair cost is estimated to be around RM50,000 to RM100,000.
6) Ebby Yus
One of the worst flood cases involving Malaysian celebrities would be Ebby Yus. His house was reported to be under construction, and there was only around 10% left for the house to be completely done. There were only wallpapers left to be put up and a little bit of touch-ups to be done here and there. However, the flash flood wiped out the whole house completely. He mentioned how he accepted his fate despite the disaster.
Our heart also goes out to those who had it way worst. Hopefully everyone is getting sufficient help and staying safe.
