No electricity in Yangon

I know. I didn't update my blog for many days. It is all because of electric power outage in Yangon. Today is the forth day of blackout. The whole street is in complete chaos with noisy electric generators.

Rumour said that electricity was transferred to so-called National Convention about to be held at Nyaung-Na-Pin. It was also said that there will be no electricity except midnight to morning 6 am as long as that stupid NC is held. Only that 6 hours of electricity a day is offered so that people can pump up water during that time.

I don't know if it is the electricity from all Yangon but it doesn't make sense that electric from a big city is transferred just to a small NC area. But these soldiers always do everything which doesn't make sense at all.

So, what do people do? People just sit at their home and curse at damn Junta.

PS: Sorry for no poem Moe Moe. I am busy cursing at Junta.

Update (September 26, 06):

The electric bill man said power was cut for they were repairing underground cables. So, rumour was just rumour. Today, electricity was back most of the time.

I think this rumour happened coz people keep in their mind that this junta always take anything they want from people without thinking how much people are suffering.


  1. Oh..hoo bro!
    You might be really disappointing now.
    I found in google news that some calbles have been stolen. whatever whatever!! no electricity no country, damn bad!

  2. damn the Burmese Junta government, always freaking ruining my plans for world domination via poetry.
    sorry to hear you have no electricity. I'd probably be in a very bad mood now, if I was you.

    မ်က္မွန္နက္တပ္လို႔ နက္နက္နဲနဲအေတြးေတြကို
    ေဘာပန္အမဲနဲ႔သာ ေရးလိုက္လို႔ရွိရင္
    ခပ္မိုက္မိုက္ ကဗ်ာေတြ ထြက္လာမယ္ ကိုမ်ဳိးေရ ...

    မွတ္ခ်က္။ City of darkness ကိုေရာက္ေနတဲ့ blogger ကို စိတ္ေျပရာေျပေၾကာင္း ေရးလိုက္တာပါ :D
