Beautiful Darkness (no, I’m not talking about the book)

Last month on 27th June 2013, Sarawak was thrown into darkness for a few hours. When the power failure first struck, the sun had not set yet. I was in Bintang Megamall shopping complex enjoying an early dinner (I think it was a very late lunch) with my mum at Kenny Rogers Roasters. We went there after attending a prize-giving ceremony at Pustaka Miri in which I accepted the first prize trophy for a home library competition that they organized. My husband was working overseas so he could not attend the ceremony with me. Nevertheless, he and mum were very happy for me. My dinner was half-eaten when the lights went out. I continued to eat anyway, with occasional silly smiles gracing my face, basking in happiness for the victory I received earlier. Luckily the power didn’t snap while I was about to receive the prize in front of an audience because that would probably spoil my moment of glory. I could almost imagine a hilarious scenario.

At Kenny Rogers Roasters when Sarawak blackout on 27.06.13

We left the shopping complex before it got dark outside and were dismayed to find out the traffic lights weren’t functioning. My funny thought was probably the aliens were fiddling with our power plants. I do feel sorry for those who suffer losses due to the blackout. I thought the blackout was only for a few minutes but it went on until my cellphone battery ran out and I had to charge it in the car. I wonder too what my fellow Sarawakians were doing when the power kaputz. Most of them probably had romantic candle lit dinners. The power came back right before I went to sleep, and I went to bed with a smile on my face.
