18.01.2013 | 制水日子

[Volume 8 Issue 1, #1655]
最近多個地方制水, 我屋企一個星期就有兩日制水, 果然係服務週到!! 不過更加離譜都試過, 記得98年有一次制水整整一個星期, 每日都要等當局派水, 到時到候見到水車嚟緊嘅時候, 家家戶戶老老嫩嫩都拎住水桶去「輪水」!! 為了慳水, 連大小二便都儘量行去附近商場解決, 哈哈~~ 想返起當時個落魄樣, 真係暗地裡一笑!! 不過比起某位朋友, 我算幸運喇.. 該區聲明兩星期前開始制水, 一直到農曆新年!! 一個月幾冇自來水, 如何生存??!! @_@"
lately quite a number of residential areas are experiencing interrupted water supply, within a week i experienced two days without water supply in my area, how thoughtful!! anyway i've experienced something even worse, i remember once in 1998 there was no water supply for one whole week, everyday we had to wait for the authority to send us water, and when we saw the water truck coming, everyone from every family would bring big pails to queue up for water!! to save water, we even tried our best to "do business" at the nearby mall, haha~~ thinking back how awkward i was back then, it is just a laugh now.. however compared to a friend of mine, i'm considered lucky.. his area has been notified to have no water supply since two weeks ago, till chinese new year!! it's more than a month, how to survive??!! @_@"

    10. Bad time for no water when there is so much washing to do before CNY. True, some areas are still without water and may extend to the New Year.

      Good morning, everyone!

      Delete
    11. touch wood...pleawse please please got water and electricty during CNY

      Delete
    12. There was one year when the electricity got disruption on CNY eve. Many angry locals went to the TNB main office and they almost start a fight with 3 poor TNB maintenance guys.

      You know how important the lights must be switched on during CNY... it's a good fengshui to attract more $$$

      Dark, dark, God of Fortune also won't make a stop. LOL~

      Delete
    13. LOL... Ah Hua it is true la... You better buy more candles before CNY. I will do the same too!

      Delete
    14. Ah Hua will buy more red candles, as precaution for CNY electric interruption. If no use on CNY, I can recycle to use for Valentine's Day which comes 2 days after CNY :D

      Sparkling romantic candle-light dinner ♥

      Because no water, so troublesome go to toilet.

      Especially for ladies.

      And especially during that time of the month. O.O

      Delete
    2. Betul, betul, betul. Given water and electricity, I opt for water too.

      I get agitated whenever there's no water supply, because I can't even wash the dish. But if there's not electricity I can still take 10x of bath when I feel hot.

      The water supply got cut off for an hour yesterday when I returned home. I started to nag unknowingly towards everyone. Poor MM and the kids :p

    6. No water, no okay for Ah Hua!

      My area here has low water pressure too, suka-suka no water supply for 2 hours in the evening, around 7-9pm. No notice or so. Imagine coming home from office and school, can't even cook and need to bath with cold water. And I have to hand wash all my laundry.

      Oh, I must lower down my tone here, others encounter longer hours without water. :p

      Delete

      my place here is every midnight to 6am low water pressure. the damn management turn off water. already complained. they say they don't how come low pressure. complain to syabas, they say management problem. I suspect its the mangement coz got new management at my apartment here. since they took over go these low pressure problem.

      Delete
    8. I must be grateful to have water supply everyday. The longest cut-off of water supply I experienced before was one whole day. I cabut to my parents' house to bath, gosok gigi and poo-poo.

      1 day only, and I barely survive.

      LOL, true also, election is coming, it's time for us to extract, oppss, voice out whatever we want :D

    5. 98 water crisis was a nightmare to me~ I just entered uni and the first week of orientation was a hellish week! I woke up at 5am with a pail to wait for the water truck. I used that one pail of water to brush my teeth, wash my hair and bath. One bath per day and after a long walk around the campus, I smelled worst than a pig when I returned to my dorm at night!

      FYI, that truck came once daily. I can't even do my laundry! And it was my first time leaving home so kinda blur blur and jakun.

      Delete
    6. Cham, how come I din't remember at all the water crisis you guys mentioned? 1998, I was in Form 2, should be big enough to know what is water crisis ma! >.<

    7. Hayley, you are too young to understand water crisis in 1998 la! We every had to wait for the truck to bring us water supply in the campus.

      I cried buckets until I could use my tear to flush my pee.

Aiyo...horrifying discovery. there wrte all sorts of skeletons in the tanki. don't know ratsor birds ir what the heck. gosh...and we have be using the water..maybe even fir the coffee bar!!!

    Tanki supposed to have cover but duno what happrn to our tanki cover. fly off when windy? Kena curi? Duno la...

    1. Skeleton of animals? Not human one? LOL!

      I dare not see what's inside the tangki. Scare I find those not-supposed-to-be-in it and freak out. I'm very phobia to use tangki water for cooking. Tangki water is merely for washing. I even scold my hubb if he asked me to use the tangki water to cook instant noodle during water interruption.

      I get geli easily. Just like the other day, I hand-washed my son's uniforms and put them into the washing machine for a spin dry. When I took the clothes out to hang, I discovered a dead lizard in the washing machine!!! Yucks, I re-washed the clothes. Puit, puit~ Stupid lizard, went there to commit suicide.

      Delete
    2. LOL stupid lizard...

      of course not human remains la. if human remians sure will read about it in newspaper jor.

      Really dont know why that tanki no cover. Think of that already wanna vomit.

      Office so we dont know the water the tealady took is from which piap.

      I also try not to cook with tanki water. Coz here the tanki water is very muddy. On and off we have to turn off the water then use up all the tanki water to let the mud come out from the tanki.

  11. I feel very funny when heard about the question whether you got water or not..
    In cantonese is saying yau sui mou? Indirectly it was asking whether you got money or not?

    2. yes I do agree.
      water represent money as well..
      so no water no money..

    3. Electric is equal to light and energy, water is equal to wealthy. So, both are important on CNY time.

      If no electric, i may need to sleep in the car. Sleeping in the car will die one. I read from news.

      Delete
    4. You know in old old house where the water piping is done on the wall (and not inside the wall), you can actually selit a knife in between the pipe and wall.

      According to feng shui, the knife must not placed there because it resembles a cut-off to your wealth. Water being the wealth here.

      Delete
    5. Ooo itu macam ah...I didnt know this.

      anyway water pipe out side the wall is better. any leakage no need to hack the walls.

    6. true, water represents money. So we need plenty of water and it should be moving too.

  28. 其实没水是影响到吃喝,本来是比较严重的,不过由于只是区域性的制水,所以一切没水所造成的不便仍能解决。现代人,反倒是没电就万万不能了。
