Ice Mountain in our home
It started with a pure motivation to save time and trouble take to boil fresh water. No, not just boiling. We boil, wait for it to cool down, transfer the cooled water to a pot, and then we do it again.
I would say. We did this five times a day, seven days a week. And we are still constantly short of boiled water.
And we still haven't take the electricity for boiling up the water into account yet.
I don't have to drink direct from the tap anymore. I can have very hot or cold drink just by lifting 2 fingers.
We worry no more about running out of hot water for baby's milk. You understand if you have to wake up past mid-night to make a bottle of infant milk, and realize the hot pot is dry. I can almost hear my neighbor praise their God, not that they don't pray.
My children are especially enthusiastic after this new water gadget. Hereby know as the yin-yang fountain. Not only does it makes you younger, it is almost magical to get water at your desire temperature by tapping on the 2 tiny tap. I secretly wish their excitement will last.
Maybe is time to say bye-bye to our old ceramic water pot and hot flask.
I think I will make another cup of hot chocolate.
