Do you believe in fengshui? I don’t!! But sometimes, even if you don’t believe, you’ll end up believing it after sometime because life just gets tougher!! Some people say, when bad things happen to you, it happens 3 times berturut turut (in a row).
By looking at these pictures, I’m sure everyone is shocked. Me too!! I just can’t imagine how it could happen.
On the day after Christmas, we were all sleeping very nicely. At 630am, I was actually awake, but lying down on the bed thinking if I should get up now. Then the air cond went off…and it came back again…after a few mins, it repeated it’s on off stint.
Then I was thinking, what the he** is happening man. But I continued lying down on the bed, till suddenly I heard fire crackers sound. And so happen, my whole house went blackout. The I thought, OH SHIAKS…IS THERE SOMEONE STEALING DADDY’S BIKE!! Yeah, it sounded like someone started the bike.
Then next thing I knew, there were people outside my house and my neighbour was banging the gate, “Fire, fire”.
I was upstairs in my room when I open the window and heard my neighbour shouting, “Fire, Fire!!”
Then I rush down to check what happened. To my amaze, the meter outside the house was on FIRE!!
This time I really panic…cause I had to open up 2 locks to get out of the house (Thanks to the you know who, we’ve added extra security, which turns out to be cumbersome at times like this).
Once I opened the sliding grilled, I rushed to the gate as one of my neighbour was already holding his FIRE EXTINGUISHER. And while he run in, I quickly pull the hose and wanted to open up the water, but thank GOD that he manage to pull off the fire with the extinguisher and it ended up with another bang!!
After that, it was SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES time. My whole house smelt of burnt rubber. One of my neighbour offered to let us take shelter and settle down the kids. While I went back inside and got my handphone and start making call.
First call: Mr. Hon for sure. It’s only like what 5am his time, so when he picked up the phone. I told him, eh house on fire just now. Then he went, you joking right? I was like duhh…you mean I call you at 5am to tell you house on fire as a joke, c’mon lah, it’s not April Fool. No, I’m serious, really it was on fire!! The electricity went berserk and it caught fire. Then the neighbours came and pull it off.
He put down the phone after that, after telling me what to do and giving me a lecture the house must be overloaded bla bla bla…and the maid so blur, bla bla bla…what I did, bla bla bla….
Anyways, after that he called again and ask me to call this n that…oh, and he never forget to ensure his dear fishie was alright, despite the fact that the trauma happened to me and the kids…”kanasai betul laki ni”. I know him, if I can pick up the phone and call him, means I’m still alive and kicking. So no need to worry bout me.
I call TNB and reported the incident. And I specifically ask them to come ASAP if not my hubs is gonna be so mad about what is gonna happen to his fishie due to lack of oxygen in the tank.
Then I called MIL and told her I’ll drop the kids off early.
Then my boss & colleague. I thank GOD that my boss is very understanding. Somemore just started work. I think if other boss, they would have skin me alive for taking EL every week :|.
Then I sent a few sms to get electrician contact and my good buddy replied me with the contact. So I quickly call the electrician and ask him to come over.
I drop the kids off at MIL’s house and went home. The floor was oily…don’t know why!! So I decided to mop it while waiting for TNB & electrician to come. But it’s still oily after that..eww…anyways, since they took so long to come, I decided to snap some photos of the incident as proof (in case I want to sue TNB for causing such a havoc in my house) & testing my new camera (yes, I went to get myself a big present!!).
While waiting for them, I made calls to Alarm man, Roof man as well. I’ve actually made appointment to meet them in the evening, but since I’m at home, might as well the whole bunch come one shot and rob my purse lah…*big damage everywhere*
The people finally came at 10am. TNB checked and confirm the mains were crossed and it was the one giving problem. Arghh…wear and tear wohh…bla bla bla wohh….
So they changed the main incoming wire. Then the electrician spent a good 2 hours drilling, hacking and what not to fix up the temporary bypass electric for us.
TNB says they do not bring meter, so gotta wait for the meter (from meter dept), meanwhile use FOC electric (but according to Eve, they don’t give free, they backdate & charge you…grrr…).
Seriously, I think I’ve had enough of bad luck.
First it was the water tank. Yeah…we used up 400 Gallons on water in the house (till the vy last drop) and yet thought that something was wrong with Syabas, till later I realised it wasn’t and finally when we call the Plumber over, we found out the float was broken and caused the water not to fill up the tank.
Then it was the break in last week.
And now it’s the fire.
It all happens to the house, hurting my pocket so much…so do you believe in fengshui…I do, at least for now for these 3 cases.
Lets hope that’s the end of it.
At night Daddy called while we were at Atria getting something. He seemed to have mellow down from his wake up call and start to talk some sense in him. At least he asked what’s the outcome and all the other stuff (apart from his fishie). As usual, the super wife has settled everything. And he hung up the phone with a “Bye, Love you darling”..wuaahh…so senang only…
Now, I think next thing I really need to buy home insurance. Choi choi..must go call my agent now.
