“Charge it to experience”. Tomorrow is my check-up to my cardiologist so I have to leave after lunch. My sister will also have her follow-up consultation so we will go together. My son will stay behind. But alas! Tomorrow, we will have the 12-hour power blackout. It is the electric company’s maintenance schedule. That is why I am making this discussion this early, and might make another again before I go to bed. Charge! Yes, we have to charge all our electronic gadgets like our mobile phones, flashlights, the iPad and laptop; and our fridge should be adjusted to the highest thermostat so we will have ice-cold water to drink. Worse though, my Nokia is no longer charging. I have to plug it and keep it plugged until the battery starts to charge. Do you remove your phones once it reaches a hundred percent charge? Do you text or call while it is plugged in for charging?

I don't. There's still a trickling stage. When the phone battery, especially smart phones are at its 100%, it still isn't. You still have to wait a few minutes more. I have an app called battery doctor that takes care of the health of my battery and says when it's time to remove it from the charger. I've had that app for years even before when I was still using an android phone.

Oh no! It is almost like by us, but you got warning and I hope those 12 hours sped by. I have learnt to keep things charging for as long as possible because we never know when they will just cut our power like they do.
