One of the downfalls of living in a tropical country is you get thunder and lightning all year round. Especially now that it's the raining season, (I think it is... is it) it's even worst.
I always thought I was a big brave gal... heck! I'm 19 years old now! Hehe... but oh goodness... My parents left me alone in the house just now at around 5pm coz my dad wanted to go to the gym and I was too tired to follow them... kids in the Kindergarden are a HANDFULL!!! Anyway... I fell asleep at 5 pm and woke up at around 7pm! It was raining a bit outside then and Mr.Thunder and Miss Lightning were just getting ready to come out and play!
For some reason, my family has always had this 'curse' with houses. Wherever we move to, be it in
Anyway, as I was saying, I woke up and quickly went to take a bath. Praying hard that it wont suddenly blank out when I’m stark naked in the bathroom! Imagine! It will be a remake or the Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho! Goodness..!!! Well, lucky for me everything turn out all right!
Then I went down to cook myself a bowl of instant noodles! That's when the adventure began! I on the fire and suddenly Boom!!! The lights went off! The house became pitch black! Ah! Scary! I quickly took a chair, climb up, open the 'electrical box' and started to touch my way around all the switches!
I now know how a blind man feels! A bit at least! Felt the odd wan out and push it up! Yeah! Brightness!!! =) I quickly went upstairs to get myself torchlight just in case!
Continued to cook my noodles! By the Mr.Thunder and Miss lightning were really having a blast. Literally. Blasting here! Blasting there! Naughty! Halfway thru boiling the water, terror strike again. Now I didn't dare to on the switch again for fear that the house will suddenly blow up! Luckily I had my torchlight with me! But it had the tiniest beam of light! Argh... I stood there in the kitchen not knowing wat to do. Then, I really started to feel terrified. I kept imagining that something or someone will suddenly grab my shoulders or something! To make matters worst, my handphone had no line so I couldn't call anyone to keep me company! I kept shining my pathetic torchlight all around me sort of to scare anyone that will come near me! >.<>
Luckily Mr.Thunder and Miss lightning had to go for dinner, so they sorta stop after I dunno, 2 minutes? So I quickly went to the 'box' and push up the switch!
The red one is my saviour! Now they're all happily UP! =)
Oh... the picture of my house lighting up never gave me so much relieve before in my life! And here I thought I was a big brave gal.
Dun tell anyone this ok? Shh..
