Omg absolutely love this sentence. We rise indeed! I’m currently living in Doha but going to move to Singapore soon but my whole family lives in Indonesia and I go home often. So yeah, all this blackout things have been going on for years. It’s so bad that if you visit the complex where I live, nearly every household has a generator and those who cannot afford, has to endure darkness for hours every day. Hang in there Caroline! This too shall pass! Btw, it’s getting a bit better now in Indonesia. I hope the situation is improving for you too?
