The monsoon season had hit Malaysia once again, the federation region in Sabah, Sarawak and the Malayan States on the eastern coast of Malaya were hard hit by the torrential rain that had poured down for several days. One of the State that first experience the fury of the North East monsoon wind were the State of Pahang. Several districts including Rompin, Pekan and even the State capital Kuantan were devastated by flood. The flood had become so severed that the Malaya electrical energy main supplier, the TNB need to isolate and shut down the electrical energy in the State's capital after the main Switch yard in Kuantan were also flooded, leaving the city in darkness. It became worst when the main reservoir in the upper river that flow to the city also had released its excess water when the dam can no longer with hold the increasing volume of water in it. It is the State's worst flood in 40 years.

Many people in Kuantan and several parts of Pahang need to be evacuate to the nearest evacuation camp, even though when the flood get worse, they need to be removed again and again to other evacuation camp. After Pahang, the flood started to hit in Johor, Terengganu and Kelantan.

When the people affected by the worsening rain and floods, it is a rare privileged to witness members of the State's revered royal family also taking parts to help the evacuees in the camp as part of their social contribution to the society. Among other were a rare privileged to witness Her Royal Highness the Tengku Puan Paduka Putri (Crown Princess) of Pahang, Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah helping to prepare and serves food for the evacuees in evacuation camp.

HRH the Tengku Puan of Pahang personally attended the evacuees needs by preparing food for them.
It has long be known, the daughter of the late Sultan Iskandar al-Haj of Johor have a soft spot especially in term of her relation with the people of Pahang.
