Blackout galore?!

What on earth is going on with SESCO these days? Last Sat­ur­day my fam­ily and I were din­ing at Hui Sing when we noticed a whole part of Hui Sing gar­den across the road in dark­ness. Luck­ily the black­out bug didn’t hit that par­tic­u­lar stall where we were. Ah soon of Tabuan Desa then mes­saged me with some­thing along the lines of ‘your house got elec­tric!?’ So that’s two areas void of elec­tric­ity in one night. Hui Sing and Tabuan Desa.

If that wasn’t enough, Swin­burne expe­ri­enced two black­outs in two days. Once dur­ing our Eng. Math tuto­r­ial and once when we were busy prepar­ing our oral presentation.

Black­out dur­ing our Eng. Math tuto­r­ial. That cor­ri­dor light you see runs on backup power.

And now?! I’m writ­ing this with the help of lap­top bat­ter­ies, an emer­gency light, bore­dom, and a Digi Edge con­nec­tion. Bloody black­outs. By the way, yes, my dad does pay the bills.

Four black­outs within a week! And it’s been almost two hours already, where is the bloody electricity!?

This sucks. Mos­qui­toes are all over my face. Now the home alarm is nag­ging about it’s low backup bat­tery. Not to men­tion it’s so freak­ing hot in here!
