Avoid any water-related activities, please.

Due to the current weather, Malaysians are advised to avoid rivers and refrain from engaging in any water-related activities.

However, there is also an eatery in Kedah that continues to operate in the river without realizing that doing so could put their customers and the environment at risk such as ‘kepala air‘ phenomenon.

Many also urge the eatery to be closed as it is hazardous to open a food stall in a river especially during current weather.
