of deepavali n DRIVING!

yeh HAPPY DEEPAVALI! which means HAPPY HOLIDAY! don u juz love to b in msia?

suddenly every1 got no work n no classes. suddenly every1's coming back from outstation n oversea (i mean singapore haha). suddenly every1 is free to meet me. n wth moz of them juz had to b free on sun. suddenly i'm bz wif calls n smses to coordinate these outings. man i've not been doing this for a long time. suddenly every1 can't confirm cos every1 has other commitments including me. suddenly i'm stressed n confused.

i need to choose.. prioritise.. n SACRIFICE!! weii i've been rotting at home all these while, y all the events had to happen in a day?? on the same day!! i hate to sacrifice.. y can't things space out a lil? well in the end.. i had to fly an aeroplane to my primary skool frens.. gosh i feel bad=(

from secret recipe in times sq down to ichiban bonshi in pavillion. gals... i reli had a great day catching up wif u all. it's been a long time since i had a great day. i hope i can have more of this even when i'm working!! NO NO NO i'm not gonna b a stressed out pharmacist who has no life. triple layered eyebags severely underweight hair loss backache headache giddiness drowsiness ARRGGHH!! ok let's not scare myself 1st.

++++

well after back from pavillion.. got bit excited n ask dad to let me practise driving around the taman. dad was like serious??!! cos lin-sama has not land her butt on the driver's seat since like errrr.. 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. huh! a gud 5 yrs!!! now this is the ultimate acquired skill which i seriously doubt whether it's stil anywhere in my limbic system.

now yeh.. adjust my seat. push to 1st gear.. rite leg on accelerator.. ahh! the car's moving!! n it's a smooth ride baby=) i was born to drive!


ya rite...


scenario 1

dad: hey hey u wan to turn left muz show signal now.
me: yahor, ok!
*doosh doosh doosh wiper moving left n rite left n rite*
me: ahhh!! wiper?!! *in disbelief* how come the wiper is moving??!! eh how to stop the wiper now?? *panick*
dad: bcos u press wiper la.. AIYOOO.. *stop the wiper*
me: then where's the signal??
dad: HAIIYOYOOOOOO!! *heart attack* how u pass ur driving test when u dunno where's the signal??
bro: right hand side!!
me: ohhhh.. *excited at new discovery* *happily flashing the signal*


scenario 2

i was driving on a wide straight road n u know dad told me to b observant. n i was! i saw a car gonna come out from the little lorong on my left. n i immediately brake the car. then there's few secs of awkward moment when the car was waiting for me to pass while i'm waiting for the car to pass kaka.
dad: how can u brake suddenly??? so dangerous! n do u know that u r on the main road? u have the right to drive straight thru! it's the car from the little lorong that needs to stop n let u pass.
me: ohhhhh... no wonder that awkward moment juz now haha. *excited bcos i learnt sth new*


scenario 3

everytime i make a corner turn or a u turn or watever turn, n there's a car parking rite at that angle or mayb a divider, i nvr know i'm like 1 freaking inch away from it. only my dad n bro knew, n they had a tachycardia over it haha. well i kinda forget that i'm driving a car, a BIG RIGID CUBOID. i alwiz tot that the car i'm driving is only as big as my driver seat n that it can glide gracefully around any corner like a snake. wth.


scenario 4

switching to 2nd gear.
dad: y u alwiz switch to 2nd gear when the car is slowing down?
me: bcos u told me 5 yrs ago that i shudn't drag 1st gear for too long.
dad: but u muz b gaining a certain pace 1st then only u can switch to 2nd gear.
me: harh.. i tot in order to gain that certain pace, i need to switch to 2nd gear 1st!
dad: but u change to 2nd gear when the car is oredi very very slow, where got energy lidat? the car shud b moving at a certain pace 1st then only u switch to a higher gear to move at a faster pace!!
bro: i'll explain to u again later.
me: ok. *stil insisted that dad told me not to drag 1st gear for too long, 5 yrs ago*


scenario 5

side parking. so i switch to reverse gear. n then i turn my stering to the rite.
dad: STOOooP!! *forcefully turning the stering into the other direction*
me: *puzzled* hey i wan the car to move to the rite. so i turn the stering to the rite la!
bro: jie, u r now in reverse gear.
me: uhh.. i know.. so??
dad n bro: *pengsan*
me: oh oh oh i think i kinda get it. wait ah let me digest 1st.
dad: park the car 1st la. go home only digest. *very impatient liao*
then i was parking the car by listening to dad's directions, w/o using my brain cells haha.


end of 1st driving lesson in 5 yrs. the moment i get down the car. omg! i was pale n dizzy. i felt like i'm juz gonna collapse there. so i quickly took a deep breathe, walked into the house n lie flat on the floor for the nx hr.

it's either my motion sickness has gone from bad to worse, or that my BP (86/56mmHg) is too low to cope wif such stress. i'm stil dizzy until the moment i woke up the nx day, no kidding.

partly bcos of my motion sickness, partly bcos i like to talk crap, i nvr observe how ppl drive haha.

no wonder i like spongebob sooo dearly. bcos i can totally identify wif him. yes i'm juz as SILLY n STUPID as him. aho! n wat's more, i'm a sponge!! i juz absorb n absorb w/o further analysing n understanding.

man i shud hire a chauffeur for the rest of my life!!!
