Unit 12A

In Malaysia, unit 12A can be ...
.... an actual unit no. 14 - as most Asians (Chinese especially) dislikes no. 4 (which means 'death'), Malaysian developers may relabel unit no. 14 to unit 12A or 13A ... (3, means 'life' in Chinese, so a keeper)

However, unit 12A can also mean ...
.....an actual unit no. 13 - as more 'westernized' developers thinks 13 brings bad luck, like 13th floor, Friday The 13th and etc .... so, these contractors may relabel unit to 11A or 12A.

Is that all ?

Of course not .... 12A can also mean ...
.... 1st floor of unit no. 12, at least that's what TNB (TENAGA NASIONAL BERHAD) "the sole consumer electricity supplier who claims that they are not making money" thinks....

Total Nincompoop Berhad (TNB) disconnected our electricity (unit 12) when they were suppose to disconnect unit 12A. My hubby's rented office space (located on the first floor) was without electricity for more than 24 hours!!!! They left a notice in our mailbox for 12A!!!

We called... waited ....
Called again .... waited again ...

This morning, I contacted them again, frustrated.
This TNB guy said to me "Oh.... 12A is not first floor??"
Hmmmmmm............. 

The electricity is now back in our unit.

Imagine if we are in the cold storage business..
Goods will go rotten. There will definitely claims against TNB. TNB will have to reimburse...
... no wonder they are not making money!!!!!!

i once had a quite similar prob with TNB few weeks back. my blok appmt had a black out due to some rascal stoopid stole the main fuse. then TNb came to settle the probs.but guess what???
they settled the probs at the main box, but forgot to restore the electricity to every stairs in the blok (1 blok got about 8 stairs to the appmnt)
pity us, the resident :(

Adohai ... kesian all the resident!

This TNB, somemore said not making $$$ add in additional 1% ...... govt agree pulak, siow.

I think they are over-paying their non-performing higher execs!!! Leaving those at the bottom of the food chain frustrated, potong salah unit .... lupa restore electricity... sigh, at the end, consumer pulak kena...

You electricity supplier seems very inept - could you sue them if you had lost stuff because of their incompetence?
Hannah and Lucy have so loved the silvervine leaves and stems. I have sprinkled some of the powder in with them and bagged them up to get full "sniff power " again!!
They haven't had the new nip pillow yet as the weather has not been too bad this week and they have been able to get out but think they will need it soon.
Will let you know when we are ready to go with silly nip pillow antics!! If you want any pictures take what you want.
Luv Hannah, Lucy and Sue xx xx
