Power trip

Posted by Dawn at Monday, August 24, 2009
Tonight, as Vicky was about to prepare dinner by turning on the switch to spark off the fire on the stove, the whole house electricity tripped. I reset all the switches on the powerbox and we tried it again and again. Each time, the power just tripped.

We depended on this stove for our daily meals as we have home cooked meals 90% of the time and moreover, Vicky had already cut and washed the food to be cooked. We cant just dump everything behind and go off for dinner outside. Well, we COULD..but I really didnt want Caleb to eat MSG laden food sold outside, if I had the choice.

So I quickly scurried off and walked hurriedly to the NTUC nearby my house and discovered they didnt have what I was looking for as I wanted a portable gas stove which was powerful. I didnt want those electrical hot plate ones. So I went to the electrical shop in the same shopping centre and paid almost $50 for the portable gas stove with 3 extra gas canisters as standby.

Anyway, this gas stove will be useful if I want to to have steamboat or in times like these...

So here's Vicky cooking with it in the kitchen!

That night when I thanked the Lord for the meal, it was more significant as I was just so glad and satisfied to have this hard-earned homecooked food right in front of me.
