24.06.2013 | 無水日子

[Volume 8 Issue 6, #1742]
上個星期又再一次制水, 仲係一連六十個小時咁耐!! 算啦, 我都冇力氣再去埋怨喇, 反正個水泵整咗九千幾次都仲係未整好, 下一次再制水都會係俾同樣一個理由.. 反而呢一次制水成三日, 就親身見證到原來左鄰右里都相處得好和睦喎.. 派水車嚟嘅時候大家自動排隊, 絕對冇爭先恐後, 而且每人自動自覺每次最多取兩桶水.. 排隊等取水嘅時候, 除咗互相幫忙托水, 大家仲閒話家常.. 呢三日內, 大家沖涼都要就住嚟沖, 連去個廁所都要三思, 一桶水可以多個用途, 實在係無所不節省其極!! 所以話, 我哋平時睇落係彼此冷漠相待互不相干, 但係一有咩事發生, 就往往可以好團結好和睦咁相處.. 這就是我們馬來西亞人的態度喇~~ :)
we experienced yet another water disruption last week, for as long as 60 continuous hours!! sigh, but i am already sick of making a fuss out of it, afterall the water pump has been repaired for 9000-over times and still repairing, if there is another water disruption, likely they will give the same reason again.. instead within that three days of water disruption, i realized people in the neighborhood can actually be quite harmonious.. when the water truck arrived, everyone lined up automatically and there was no fighting for water, besides everyone deliberately limited themselves to take two buckets of water.. while waiting for turns, people didn't mind helping each other to carry the buckets, and of course people started to chat.. within those three days, taking shower has to be brief, even when there's an urge to tinkle or poop we think if that's necessary, and one pail of water can be used for many purposes, so long as to save water anything could be done!! hence i say, we may seem to be only minding our own businesses, but when some things happened, many times the people would easily unite and stay together harmoniously.. ah, that's the malaysian attitude i guess?? :)

    1. Yeah, I read about the pump in WM being down and I thought it was an old story. That must have been another inconvenient round of taps running dry.

      In times like these, good neighbourliness goes a long way.

      Delete
    2. Also, in these hazy and stuffy days, H2O is what we need most (besides clean air). Glad the taps are back to normal.

    3. yes, it was and is still an old story but the water disruption is like forever and always fresh!!

  2. Good to know that despite the inconvenience, you and your neighbours act well and very neighbourly to each other, SK.

    1. two weeks!! OMG, i really cannot imagine that.. the worst i had experienced was one week, and that was back in 1998..

      Delete
    2. The worst I experienced was during Form 4, when I was studying in Melaka.

      I think it was three months of no water due to drought. Our school like many homes there, resorted to digging well. We used well water to bath and cleaning. Those with boyfriends were lucky ad their boyfriend helped them carry their buckets of water to the dorm. :-D

    3. 1998...

      I experienced it too.

      I was staying at Jln Genting Klang that time.

Thambee faints.. oh, you were staying in Jln Genting Klang in 1998?? i was living there from 1982-1994!! only in 1995 we moved to Wangsa Maju..

    5. We used well water. Like orang dulu-dulu.

    2. Yo! Our Baking Queen has sworn not to allow any ghosts to upset her. So she will control all the situations now. VERY GOOD!!! I was being driven up the walls too many times until I read this wise line to CONTROL THE SITUATIONS.


      Drink water when I get mad! Thambee got no water at home for 60 hours!! Goodness that is super crazy!

    3. very good, Mak Yannie has very high EQ now that she is controlling herself and not allow anyone affect her mood.. i think this this is rather cool..

      Anay drink water when you get mad?? hey, cannot drink too much of water also, you can get water-intoxicated!!

      Delete
  5. Too many people, over-populated. Some places, blackouts are frequent as the supply can't cope with the number of new houses all over. Well, count your blessings! At my daughter's rural school, they are dependent on the rain...and it has not rained for a long long time now... Sigh!!!!

    1. overpopulated isn't an excuse but the authority should have foresee this and have taken necessary steps to cope with it, sigh sigh!! oh, no wonder your daughter is bring back her laundry home for you to wash..

  7. SK Thambee you had all the bliss growing up in the villages in Tiruchirapalli where abundance of water flows in the streams all the way to Ganges River! You used to bathe and dance naked with Kamala while she sang songs and washed laundry... Adoi! So sweet!...

    What happened now? You chose to sail to Malaya to cari makan! I told you before that piped water is not reliable!! You should move to stay near the streams in Hulu Langat!

    1. Anay!! you were the culprit who brought the little innocent Thambee enjoying the Ganges River all the way sailing to the Malaya!! now you are blaming me~~ @_@"

  8. I know that I will probably not experience the water cut because I found out that the SYABASSS boss just lives 2 streets away from my home. Imagine if his house has no water for 60 hours, that would be a sick joke.

  11. But there's still have water from the pipe just that the water never goes up to the "water tank" so no water in the bathroom, need to carry the water from kitchen to use in bathroom!!! =[

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you mean the tangki ah?? hahaha.. we totally have not had any water left, so need to go take water from the water truck and carry them all the way home, and then all the way to the bathroom in 2nd and 3rd floor~~

      Delete
    2. Same with my sister, she has to carry the water all the way up to 3rd floor!!! =[

    3. that's why thank you SYABAS for the good exercise huh, maybe we were 1kg slimmer after that!! :D

      Delete
  12. Oh no, the same situation again! I hate it when there's no water supply. But we do get notice beforehand so I would normally store water pails after pails.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. one day of disruption with notice beforehand is totally fine.. but three days of water disruption is too much, how much water can you store for three days right??

    2. Glad to know that everyone are well-cooperative! You know I think that's one of the result after our GE! Must cooperate with each other to 'fight against the bad guys'!! Hehe ;)

    3. But no water for 60 hours is really a disaster!! I cannot imagine how! Some more the weather now is so so hot I need to bath at least 3 times a day!!

      Delete
    4. hahaha, who is not talking about the haze now?? when you see anyone i guess the topic starts with how serious the haze is huh?? but Perak still moderate level, over here we are nearing the very unhealthy level already..

      very true lah, if just one day of water disruption i am actually fine with it, but three days is too much!! luckily nothing unhappy happened when we queued up for water.. i was actually surprised~~ :D

      Delete
  20. On a positive note, things happened for a reason. Being neighbours you all probably don't know the each other even staying on the left or right, back or front. So this is the only watery opportunity for a successful 'getting to know you' project haha.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, i guess it was just for that very moment that we "get to know each other".. when water supply was back to normal, everything went back to normal as well.. everyone back to mind their own business, hehe~~

    3. I always feel water is the most important utility among all. Many things we can do with it. Even human can still survive with water even without food.

    6. So did you guys find out what is the reason being no water supply? Are they trying to get a bigger draining systems at your area. Guess they work it phase by phase.

      No choice right, what to do. Don't cook, no washing. But at least need to take a bath too right? hehehe

    7. yalah, if just one day of disruption is totally fine because we always store enough of water.. but a three day water disruption is too much, how can you store enough water for that long?? boring lah, the last water disruption just happened like three weeks ago, and now again!!
