There’s a Malay proverb that goes, “Sediakan payung sebelum hujan,” which means it’s best to have an umbrella ready before it rains.
Faced with what can be best described as a ‘seasonal’ water cut problem, the people of Selangor are, unfortunately, always ready for the eventuality that one of these days our pipes might run dry either due to pollution problems at our main water sources or from the maintenance works done by the water supply company.
With their thinking
caps buckets on the ready, here are some of the creative and even mad solutions Selangoreans have come up with to survive the ‘air-pocalypse’.
Stock up on supplies
In any disaster scenario, it’s always best to have a stockpile of essential supplies, just in case it runs out.

Though I have vowed not to bath, brush my teeth, cook, wash dishes, defecate or wash clothes during the water cuts designed by the geniuses that govern us, I have decided to erect an installation art work dedicated to water & water containers titled “Water & Its Containers”. pic.twitter.com/qYvihhZ5Fq— Sharaad C.

Alas, there is little to nothing that we can do but hope to survive these
dark dry times and pray for a miracle.
