This morning we went for our usual grocery shopping. The hyper market was having air conditioning problem and they were trying to fix it. In the midst of shopping, there were several power trips. 🙄😓 I continued to grab what we needed and then faster queue to pay. Our queue was longggg because the family in front was buying bulks of things and then wanted to pay via touch n go. Looking at other people who completed shopping later than I and going faster than me in other cashiers 😒😒 of course I felt annoyed. Never mind, take it easy – still got time. Then our turn came. In the midst of scanning our groceries, the power trip happened again. 😓 Fortunately, the cashier that I queue was generator operator – so we didn’t have to wait for the item to be re-scanned (plus wait for the cashier machine to load). At this point, I felt ‘relief’ 🤭😂 that I went on this long queue. 🤣 (cos the few other cashier machines weren’t generator operated)
With the power trips, the travelator wasn’t operating. We were told to take the lift. It was just our trolley – me, Nikki and Norrah (for our turn). Although it was just one floor down, never could I imagine that power tripped while we were in the lift! 😱😱😱😨😨😨😰😰😰 Aiyo, I have this phobia of being trapped in lift since college days (because I was trapped in one before). I have to admit that my leg went shaky with the total darkness. I was baby wearing Norrah while Nikki was in the trolley. I couldn’t see Nikki at all!! Imagine the darkness. While in the shivery mode, I told Nikki ‘mama is here! Don’t worry!’ 🤭🤭🤣🤣 wow I actually said that. Darkness was about one minute – I took out my phone to see if I could press the help bell, but since no power – it wasn’t working!😓😓
Then the power came. But we need to wait for the lift to ‘restart’. I tried pressing the bell, not working on the left side. I stood there and continued to calm Nikki – though Nikki was doing fine (she did not cry throughout the ordeal). Then I went to the right side of the lift; the bell was working but seems like nobody bothers. So, we still waited for the lift to restart – finally the arrow up and down appeared. Quickly, I pressed G and waited for it to open the door, praying that there will not be another power trip in between! 🙄🙄
Right after the lift door opened, cabut lari lor…
And Nikki told me: Mama, I don’t want go shopping anymore!
