the one about the steamer

So I've been steaming my clothes these past two months and wondering why everytime I do that, there's this smell of burning electronics. Being your regular female, I naturally assumed it was the chemical contents of the dodgy Subang water that I was using to fill the steamer with. I switched to filtered water but still that same smell. Nothing from the steamer looked like it was having any problems and nothing from the multiplug extension it was connected to.

Ah but that was where the mistake lay. Yesterday I looked at the OTHER multiplug extension that the aforementioned multiplug extension is connected to. Just to say hello, y'know. And I see this:



yikes. yeah. indeed.

this is the plug of the first multiplug extension. which has now melted into the second extension, therefore, I can't throw out the first unless I try prying it out of the second. fabulous.

it seems that the smell would only come when I use the steamer though. there's no smell when I use my phone charger, keyboard, printer or..um..epilator. so..........can I just not use the steamer with this one and leave the rest be?
