A power blackout at a most inconvenient time this morning, put paid to one man's regular breakfast arrangement, and forced him to make urgent changes to his routine.
Electricity to properties in the Tapon area of Battambang was cut at around 6:00am on Monday, just as Moys Kenwood, 56, was putting his Corn Flakes in a bowl.
He noticed the little red light on the kettle go out, and knew that a cup of hot tea was now out of the question, unless he got his wife to boil the water using the gas.
Just as bad, however, was the sad realization that, if there wasn't any electricity, there wasn't going to be any toast. This was different. There was no time to toast the bread on sticks over a fire in the garden, as he might have done had this been a Saturday or a Sunday.
It would have to be bread out of the pack, served on a plate, with marmalade.
He resignedly spread the orange jam on the bread, as his wife used the gas to boil the water. He made the tea and ate his cereal.
As he took his first bite out of his 'bread and marmalade', the power came back on.
