Maybe I’m a little late, but Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all who bother
reading this little corner of the world wide web where I put my ramblings
down in writing. The last three days has been very tiring. Here’s how it
Wednesday: If almost getting fined or jailed by immigration for
overstaying at Singapore wasn’t bad enough, it took me a total of 6
hours to get from Singapore to KL via trains and plane. And to think I
missed getting a seat on an earlier flight by just a number. Arrgghh!
Thursday: Barely half hour I was awake, I was already driving my family
down to Johor Bahru. My mistake for catching up on the rest and sleep
in the afternoon as I ended up with insomnia that night till 2am.
Friday: Woke up early, went to perform the Eid prayers and the rest of
the day, we were visiting relatives (and eating, driving, eating, driving,
ad nauseam) from JB to Batu Pahat to Muar before heading home for
Kajang at 10pm. The drive could’ve been made less challenging had
my Dad not kept on yawning unnecessarily loudly over the already loud
Crystal Method CD I had playing over the car stereo. It was contagious!
Why can’t have he just slept? I’ve clocked in a few thousand hours of
driving over the past 10 years of my life, but this has been THE most
challenging drive I have ever done so far!
No, “Drive carefully” is not exactly my motto now. It’s more like “Stay
away from the roads!” for the moment.
