JAKARTA: Urbanites are becoming increasingly resourceful when it comes to coping with the more and more frequent electricity cuts. Model turned soap opera actress Andi Soraya goes a bit extreme by sleeping in the car. But, she’s probably lucky to have her car to escape to during hot, humid days without electricity.
“My children cannot sleep when it’s hot. When there is a power cut, we sleep in the car with the air conditioning turned on,” said the 33-year-old mother of two, as quoted by newsportal kapanlagi.com on Tuesday.
“I know it’s supposed to be dangerous to sleep in the car, but what can I do when the children can’t sleep in their dark, hot room?”
And it is not just the sleeping patterns of Andi’s family that suffer from having no electricity.
“It [power cut] often occurs during day when we’re supposed to do the laundry,” Andi complained. “We have to delay cleaning the house, too.”
