Last Saturday, we went for a buffet dinner in a relative's house. Hubby's cousin are getting married in early March. We drove 2 separate cars over as one car could not fit all the family members. We left at around 7pm and after an hour plus, we came back home. Only hubby & I plus the kids and SIL's husband and wife + son left earlier while the other family members stayed back to chit chat.
Once we reached home, YX as usual being so excited couldn't wait to go into the house to play with his cousin. He rushed inside the house and fell down. Luckily nothing serious happen to him. Just a minor cut on his chin. I quickly on the lights and to our horror, we saw the floor was covered with water ! Hubby and BIL went around the house to find where did the water came from. SIL and I quickly helped the kids to the stairs so they won't fell down on the slippery floor.
Finally, hubby and BIL found the culprit. One of the hose in the kitchen area were broken and water were spraying out. In just a short 1 hour plus, the amount of water on the floor are consider a lot ! Surprisingly, the water moved in a shape of a dragon. We joked, saying that the Water Dragon came to visit us. But in reality, we believe the floor are not even (which we could not see with our eyes) and that makes the water flow in the directions from the higher to the lower part. Certain area near to the broken hose were dry while the living room (far away from the hose) were wet !
YX's school bag and my notebook bag was on the floor. Unfortunately, the water choose to move in that direction and flooded our bags ! YX's school books were all soaked wet and I'd since dried them under the hot sun yesterday. My notebook was not that bad. Only soaked with a few cm of water. Luckily my external hard disk was not wet. Else, all my important files will be gone.
Everyone help to sweep the water out. With so many family members around, the job was done easily. A nice exercise after a heavy dinner. MIL continued to joke that we were all so filial as every one helping her to mop the floor from the kitchen to the living room. Except for YX's book and injured chin, nothing else was damaged.
