Utuh Bakencong Replacing the Roof

Exactly at 11 pm Utuh Bakencong woke up from his sleep. He had woken up twice today. Previously at 4 o'clock this morning. Because he was tired after washing clothes, he fell fast asleep near the side door of his house.

Well, after waking up for the second time, he immediately opened the side door of his house. Then stretch the muscles, especially in the hands. And, how surprised he was when he saw the roof next to his house was badly damaged. Either because of the strong wind or other reasons.

"Wadduuuuh! How can you do this? It's so scary!" he muttered, shaking his head.

He continued to watch the broken roof for a while.

"This must be replaced immediately!" he cried in his heart.

Without wasting time, he rushed himself immediately brought some money and went straight to the building shop not far from his residence. Luckily the sun was hiding behind the clouds. He casually walked while carrying a bright plastic tin roof, tacks and rubber coating which he bought at an affordable price.

Shortly after he arrived home, the sun was shining brightly. The temperature slowly rises. The weather is getting brighter. However, he continued his struggle to replace the damaged roof with a new one.

While carrying a carpentry box, he was exposed to the scorching sun.

"Hot! Hot!" his voice slightly raised and repeated as he walked rather quickly.

That was why, before bringing the other items, he thought hard. He took the initiative to use an umbrella to protect him from the hot sun. Several children immediately laughed when they saw him carrying two sheets of plastic tin roof while holding an umbrella. Then he brought a thermos of hot food and hot tea in a teapot.

It was only after everything was complete that he began to remove the damaged plastic zinc one by one. Then replace it with a new one he bought.

Now, he has installed the new roof. The result is very neat.

"Well, if it's like this, isn't it great!" he muttered while smiling broadly with a happy heart. (MJA).
