Brownout memes spread in Albay

Amid the frustration of Albayanos over the widespread brownout, some netizens have turned to humor to express their displeasure.

On Facebook, several memes poking fun at the situation have been uploaded. Among these are images calling Albay the "Brownout Capital," and the Albay Power and Energy Corp. (APEC) as having an APEC fail, a pun on the expression "epic fail."

Others have posted the following comments:

"APEC..tado ang gabos.kaurag dai na ngane ki tubig dai pa kuryente..hamaki 7 aldaw daing kuryente.BOOMmakaurag...maray pa so ALECO kaito"

"may siring daw kitang problema ngunyankung ang bagay na ini kaito pa naatendiran?
Ngunyan gabos kita nadideficilan
Dahil sa mga naenot na KAPABAYAAN!"

"Salamat po sa APEC (iligal man ngani) sa atab na christmas light!"

Text messages slamming the six-day brownout are also circulating throughout the province.

Meanwhile, the latest message posted by Albay Gov. Joey Salceda on the brownout reads: "Good am Gov. Joey, as of today/11:01am we adopted rotating brownouts daily. Presently we supply 12 versus 22 MVA peak load or 55%. The affected areas were already posted in your FB account. An advisory will be also released today. We have already completed removal of the defective 20 MVA transformer from the Bitano Substation As of 6 am today, one unit brand new 10 MVA transformer is in Ragay, Camsur. Expected arrival is within today. It is expected to be energized late afternoon to midnight tomorrow. The truck carrying the other unit encountered mechanical problem in Calauag, Quezon. Rest assured that we are doing our best to normalize the power situation at the earliest time. Thank you for your support and understanding."--BICOLSTANDARD.COM
