Blackout blues

Fortunately in the place where I live, power was restored as early as Friday night. I wouldn’t have stood another night of no electricity and no water, yet I feel sorry for the residents of the adjacent village because they are still experiencing the blackout.

I went to the supermarket on Saturday night and they’ve ran out of candles. I had a casual conversation with one consumer and she said that she has searched all nearby groceries and they’ve all ran out of candles.

There were so many people out in the mall – which makes the place even hotter – just because it’s dark in their place and there’s nothing to do at home. The restaurants are also full and you’ll be lucky to find a seat in one where there’s airconditioning.

However, you cannot be sure if the food is safe – it’s either stale or not cooked well.

    We’re on the same boat. Power got restored in our place after only a day, although I cannot help but feel sorry for those people who had to experience days without power.
