Yesterday was day 2 of the water cut. And it was the best day ever as the water came back sooner than everyone had expected! All the Klang Valley folks affected had expected the worst case scenario of a 3 to 4-day water cut but ‘syabas’ to SYABAS, the restoration works at the water treatment plant was completed on day 1 itself, at 11pm. Water supply came back to many households in the morning of day 2, including ours!
Cass asked me why I was in such a good mood when she came home yesterday and I told her that the water came back and your OCD mummy doesn’t need to worry about dry taps, dirty laundry and dirty toilets 😆
My plan yesterday was to go to the mall to have lunch with Sherilyn and the mil and also to get takeout for dinner. As I was driving out of the condo, the guard at the guard house greeted me and told me that the water supply had come back! We went ahead with our plan but did not get takeout for dinner.
I celebrated the return of our precious commodity with treats for the girls from Nando’s and Hogan Bakery😆
Ever since the water supply came back, each time I walk into the kitchen and bathroom, I simper in my heart looking at the counter tops lined with untouched water bottles and Tupperware containers filled with water. The huge pails filled to the brim with water in our bathrooms are untouched too. What are we going to do with so much water now?! It would take us 2-3 days to use up the surplus water. As our condo has a huge water tanker at every block, we were not even affected by the water cut. There were no dry taps. We only used water prudently, like no long showers and no heavy cooking.
24 hours ago, we were storing water like we were prepping for some kind of week long emergency situation and now, we are finding ways to utilize the water! 😅
Lunch with Sherilyn at Nando’s.
Certain items on the menu like salad, burger and juices were not available due to the water cut. At least Nando’s have the decency not to serve these items as the vegetables and fruits can’t be washed.
Cass commented that she’s had one of the best lunches ever as she gets a whole quarter chicken thigh to herself without having to share with her sisters. I redeemed this for free from Nando’s with points that I’d collected when I dined at Nando’s.
