It is only during heavy raining season in Singapore that I learn to love my pair of Hush Puppies, the shoe's heights 4 inches but when I walk through 2 inches deep water patch, water didn’t get into my socks. Even when I carried an umbrella half of my body gets wet excluding my feet.
This is the best pair of leather I have, ever!
Others rants, heavy rain did not create any flood in Singapore last few days, but take heart, it may cause more mud slides and soften many structures, houses near hill and slope might get hit first, Civil Engineering people should be able to confirm my opinion.
Concrete, is not all that natural structure.

“Take it from a civil engineer, yes, slopes should be checked to determine that they are safe. Just a question of who should pay for the check to be done?”
