electric bill drop like a bomb!
for the past few months, since we start paying the household utilities, the electricity bill was around RM200. so last month, i started a trial and error way to see how much money we can save. that is : switching off all the power plugs when we sleep.
so first item will be the television and it's connected parts (cable and hi-fi). have told hub to switch off the power supply instead of just pressing the "off" button on the remote control for the 3.
and the computer and modem will be switched off constantly, at least 2 hours per day. and our lightings at night are lighted at certain areas.
and today, the latest bill comes into the mailbox. and since i can't understand malay, i took the bigger figure as the current month's bill : RM145. and we had a brought-over figure of RM85. so our total bill this month was not a big killer = RM230.
when hub was back for lunch, i showed him the bill proudly! then he read and say, NO LAH! LAST MONTH'S USAGE WAS ONLY RM85, the brought-over figure was RM145.
wahhhh, i drop my jaw...
Good Night Song
Try to sleep now, Close your eyes, Soon the birds will stop singing.
Twinkling stars, Are shining bright, They'll be watching you all night.
All the things, You enjoyed, On this beautiful day
All your friends, All your toys, Will be waiting for you to play.
[italicized words are spoken]
"Mr. Sandman will bring you dreams, As soon as the lights are out, And tomorrow, You must tell me What those dreams were all about"
Try to sleep now, Close your eyes, Try to think of tomorrow.
All those stars, Wish you goodnight, So I'm switching off the light.
One more hug, one more smile, Kiss you once, kiss you twice.
I'll be here for a while, Try to sleep now and close your eyes.
