Currently, states in Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang are grappling with a flood disaster due to continuous heavy rainfall.

Southern Thailand, our neighbouring country, is also experiencing floods, impacting a substantial number of residents. The resulting natural disaster has prompted the temporary closure of roads, railway tracks, and numerous schools in the Yala and Narathiwat regions.

Female Trader Remains Resilient During Flooding

In the face of this natural disaster, a female trader has displayed unwavering determination to sustain her livelihood. A video posted on the TikTok account @userp422ac68zn captures her selling Nasi Kerabu, fried bihun, and various dishes in front of her house.

Trading Amid Rising Floodwater

Despite the floodwater reaching almost waist-high, the woman continues her business undeterred. Unfortunately, the floods have also submerged some of her cooking and business equipment.

The video depicts two customers purchasing food seemingly unfazed by the rising water.

Netizens Applaud and Extend Well Wishes

A scan of the comments section reveals widespread commendation for the woman’s composure in maintaining her business during the flood.

Additionally, many netizens are offering prayers for her patience and resilience in facing this trial.

May relief come to the flood victims on the East Coast and in Southern Thailand.
