THERE seems no end to the woes of DAP MP Chong Eng. 

The Bukit Mertajam MP was twice a victim of snatch theft, both recently. 

On Saturday evening, her house in Taman Sri Rambai, Bukit Mertajam, was flooded during a downpour which hit northern states over the weekend. 

“The water was reaching the porch at about 3.30pm on Saturday,” she said in Parliament lobby. 

Her family of four quickly placed their belongings on chairs and tables. They live in a single-storey semi-detached house. 

Fortunately, they have no sofas but rattan furniture which merely got wet but not damaged. 

 

“Water was seeping in through the doors. We used towels and old newspapers to block its flow,” she said. 

 

Her family spent two nights in a hotel, she added.
