Gabe's surf board was used to rescue Linggang the Dog

while waiting for the flood to reside, our staff and trainees too opportunity to do some fishing


this is what we find after the flood waters resides. Our machinery was severely affected and our workshop is full of mud and sand 


our store room where we have our tools was also full of mud

everything is in a mess

mud is everywhere

Now the hard work for the cleanup

we have setup our own group called "Penampang Broom Army"
