Voltage Stabilizer Part 2

So that horrible Voltage Stabilizer drove us crazy with all its "chattering." A couple nights it was so bad and constant that I woke up, and it wasn't a treat to hear it during the day, either. So we unplugged the old one, took if off the cabinet carefully (it seemed to weigh about 40 pounds), and upgraded to the much smaller specimen below-- Oscar. The cost of around 1000 rupees seems like a small price for a much quieter house. And I love its name, red color, and 1970s good looks.

Aha, and I see that Mr. Kochouseph's also set up Wonder La, the amusement park somewhere near Bangalore that I've always wanted to visit. He's got lots of ideas, that's for sure.

Not sure if Wonder La was the place with the equipment malfunction? Look before you leap.
