"Syabas" Does Not Always Means Congrats!

For the past one week, I have been suffering from LWP. No, I'm not sick and it's not a disease. LWP stands for Low Water Pressure. When I turn on the tap - any tap in my house - water trickled out in small doses - it took me 2 minutes to scrub an apple when it normally takes only 30 seconds!

A call to Syabas (Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor) proved to be futile as the people there did not know the reason for the LWP. Are they kidding or what? If they don't know, who the hell knows? I thought it was just my home that was inflicted with this unexplained phenomena, but on calling a few residents around my neighbourhood I learnt that I was not alone.

I am worried that with the LWP, I won't be able to take a proper bath everyday. Till now, I can still manage, but if the situation worsens, I'm afraid I'll have to check into a hotel just to take a bath! Or maybe, since I'm a member of Fitness First gym, I could drop by the gym just to take my bath. But as the weather is so hot nowadays, I'll be drenched in sweat by the time I reach home from the gym! Rather pointless, isn't it?

Now if someone can tell me how to fix this LWP I shall be very grateful indeed!
