Let There Be Light!
I never thought that the darkness could irritate me so much, and the electricity has been the greatest discovery. Yangon, the largest city of Myanmar, has been suffering electricity shortage for years, and I believe this time is the worst. In the area I’m living in, we have 24 hours without electricity every other day, and on the other day we can only have electricity about 6 hours or sometimes less.
What do you do when you are in the dark for several hours? Can’t read books, can’t watch TV, can’t browse the Internet, can’t keep foods in refrigerator, can’t turn on the fan. After all, I become to hate all the devices and inventions that require me to have electricity to use them.
Well, my laptop’s batteries are full now. I hope it’s enough for a 1.5 hour movie, and I don’t have to pass another night in full darkness.
