back to authenticity...

I Love You This Big - Scotty McCreery

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. - Margaret Fuller

Imparting knowledge is only lighting other men's candles at our lamp without depriving ourselves of any flame. - Jane Porter

I like it when there's no electricity. I like the eccentricity of relying only on candle lights, the authenticity of carrying the candle stand everywhere I go.

It is like you're a step closer to the past where electricity has not existed yet, or maybe like the aborigines living in the outskirts, in the jungle, miles away from the hustle bustle of the city.
It is like nothing else when you can just sit down and chill without being in front of your laptop, or the television, but just you and the quiet surroundings. Noticed how the entire place becomes quiet when the electricity just gets cut off? No more sounds coming from the TV, the video playing on the laptop, the songs on the radio. Nothing. Nil.
I like how the shadows of opaque objects are cast on the walls and appear like they are having a festival and partying the night away, dancing along with the flickering of the small fire at the tip of the candle stick.

Nevertheless, when the electricity is cut off, the air cond stops working, the electrical fans stops working, even the ceiling fans seize to work as well! Being in Malaysia, a tropical country, having no electricity is a taboo because without any cooling devices working, we'll probably sweat ourselves to death at the end of the day. It is that bad. Plus, the raging and aggressive mosquitos these days, before you even die of the extremely hot weather, you'll probably get stung to death or itch to death already. Lets just pray hard that those mosquitos that stung you weren't harmful.
Pity those who are rushing assignments or studying for an exam though. Having no electricity is the worst thing that can ever happen to one going through all these things. Can you imagine having all your exam notes all saved in the laptop but your laptop battery is dying yet the electricity is not coming back any time soon? Same thing goes to you rushing your assignments? Can you imagine having to study using only candle lights and you're already so sleepy yet you have to stay awake because you barely read anything and your paper is tomorrow morning? LOL. All I can say is - Good Luck *fingers crossed*

So, there you go! The beauty and ugly of having no electricity. Mehh...

Celebrity fun facts:

I always wanted to get married with just candles! I think candlelight is the most beautiful light there is and there's something very spiritual about it. - Nicole Kidman

You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room. - Jennifer Lopez

I'm out for now!
