15.04.2013 | 制水日子

[Volume 8 Issue 4, #1705]
上個星期四晨早, 水務公司話因為水管 【突然】 爆裂, 再加上天氣關係令到搶修工程進度放緩, 所以受影響地區需要制水四至五日.. 喺呢個高度敏感嘅時期玩制水, 箇中原因真係引起好多人猜疑.. 冇水嘅日子真係非常唔方便呀, 沖涼要就住用嗰幾嘜水不特止, 連要上個廁所都要儘量避免!! 而且仲要時時刻刻警惕派水車嘅出現, 然後你爭我攘排隊拎水, 真係咩醜態都現晒出嚟呀!! 幸好星期六朝早就恢復水供, 不過短短兩日缺水日子, 確實係度日如年.. 習慣自來水嘅我哋, 真係好難想象以前啲人每日需要擔水嘅辛苦.. 各位, 俾你揀停電同制水, 你會覺得邊一個慘啲吖嗱??
early morning last thursday, the water supply company announced that because of the 【sudden】 crack found in one of the main water pipes, and delayed fixing due to weather, affected areas shall experience water disruption for 4 to 5 days.. water disruption during such a sensitive time, that could really lead to many suspicions huh?? anyway, such a huge inconvenience water disruption can cause, you'll have to limit yourself to that pathetic few scoops of water for shower, and even if you want to go to the toilet you also have to think twice!! moreover, staying alert for the presence of the water truck, and then everyone rush to queue for water, that is where we see the ugly faces of the people!! fortunately the water supply was back to normal on saturday morning, but just the two days without water feel like years!! it's surely tough for us, who are so used to water pipes, to imagine how people of the olden days need to carry pails of water from the well or river everyday.. so folks, between water and electricity supply disruption, which do you think is worse??

  2. Glad your water pipes are flowing again. We do take a lot of modern conveniences for granted, don't we? Water is one of them. Electricity is the other. If I were to have a fridge filled with perishables, I'd prefer power over water.

    But then again, power is more critical as we can't store power like we can water. So I'd vote for power being the more important.

  3. Sure a hot weather and without water, bathing will be inconvenient....

  4. Good morning, SK and all! I hate it when there's no water supply. If there's notice, then it's not too bad as I could store as much as possible before the dooms day. But if it's out of nowhere, I would get angry. But what to do. Just no need to wash clothes and cook as those needs water. But I don't have to worry about bath as we have water tanks that store water automatically but limited only.

  5. Where my daughter is teaching, water supply via gravity feed. Brown colour on dry days, clear in rainy days. Told her to bring own water for drinking, cooking washing...laundry, bring home to wash once a week...use the water, if clear, for bathing only. But at least, she gets electricity 24 hours...from the generators...and that is only one and half hours from Sibu town - so far behind the development here and you know where the attention, all the money, all the development goes to most of all. Certainly not here! Tsk! Tsk!

    2. In this field, one has to be very very crafty and very very clever - he takes very very good care of his own constituency - no way he will lose one, they all love him so much there. This area under some Iban guy...don't expect too much lah.

    1. I am not kidding cos I observed a rich friend's house where he had several manhole covers in his garden when he only needed one. He told me that his feng shui sifu told him to realign all his water pipes and sewage drains to ensure smooth feng shui. This rich fella has since moved to live in the same condo as CowHead Minister's units in Bangsar. He made millions!

  8. Good morning SK and every one, I need electricity more than water. I can live without fan and air con. I hate mosquitoes in darkness.

    I can go to other places to bath, but I can go to other places to sleep. So, I hate electricity supply disruption more than water supply disruption.

    But then, many people nowadays cannot live when there is WiFi connection disruption. Muahahahaha!

  9. Between water supply or electricity disruptions, I rather have no water!!! I cannot sleep without fan or air con at night. I can bathe in the gym and buy mineral water bottles to stock up.

  10. I have worked briefly with Hyundai's construction industry and clearly understand how a good road should be built.
    The road system is not strong enough in most parts of the country. They cracked beneath easily thus breaking the water pipes. I think the best road systems in Asia are found in Taiwan and Singapore. You won't see big pot holes like we do. They would laugh when I told them that our roads cracked & water pipes burst out water fountains. They thought I was a good joker & comedian!

    1. No class roads would mean that there are more business for patching up those roads. Bukankah?

      Do half-baked construction job, then government will kindly pay up when disaster happen for remedial works.

      Malaysia BOLEH!

    1. I think everyone will agree la, it's truly inconvenient without water supply straight from the pipes, cause we're so used to it already!

    2. Your last question, aicks both also I don't wish to have interruption leh! But if really want me to choose, I'd prefer water disruption rather than electricity disruption....

      Delete
  21. When there's water/electricity disruption I'll bring the kids to my parents' house. But if the electricity disruption happens in the middle of the night, I'll call TNB repeatedly until they fix it. I can't survive the night without a fan, there will be mozzie waiting to suck my blood if I opened the window for better circulation.

  32. If is a black out issue, then the sign is just for temporary. Water interruption sometimes can go for days. I experiment before my area, they were trying to transfer piping line to a newly built water tanker at my taman.

    1. Even we have air cond during the hot days, isn't it great cos the air cond makes us so comfortable, but actually our body is sweating... Dun you feel sticky after you come out from a air conditioned room? I feel like taking a shower would be better still.

  34. So during that period, where you've been? Stay at hotel? Very Cham that time. Hope everything is fine right now.
