Kampung Buah Pala villagers have been thrown back into the Dark Ages after electricity was disconnected in most of the houses still standing, many of them partially damaged.

Small groups of dejected and subdued villagers and other visitors sat huddled in quiet conversation along the lane under the glare of street lights.
Several houses still standing used candles to illuminate their partly broken homes. A stray dog trotted aimlessly along the lane.
Meanwhile, 12 households lodged a police report at the Jelutong police station tonight claiming that the developer had no right to commence demolition of their homes as the Federal Court order only granted them vacant possession and not the right to demolish, according to a village spokesperson.
A few of the villagers have not given up hope of moving to an alternative site to set up a cultural village.
