Three Weeks Time


here's my card

Have you ever watched a movie or a documentary where a certain movement or action is played in slow motion? Well, I experienced it last Sunday, when I rammed my car into another Waja in front of me.

Yes, I got into an accident, but I was not the only one. Four cars were involved, bumper to bumper, but thankfully nobody got hurt. I was the fourth car.

I don’t want to detail a lot about the accident, since it’s not the best memory to reflect on. It happened really fast and I managed to settle it quite fast as well, thanks to AAM.

But what I want to talk about is this: I miss my car. I miss my car so much. It hurts to think how my car’s face is all ruined. And riding to work in a different car just doesn’t feel the same. The sound system doesn’t sound the same. The smoothness of the drive is not the same. Nothing is the same.

I used to hate how the windows don’t work anymore. I used to complain how I had to replace the door handles twice already. I used to plan how soon I was able to replace it with a new and better car. But now, all I wanted was to have it back.

Get well soon ok? I will see you in three weeks time.

Before I forget, Happy Birthday Malaysia! There is indeed no place like home.

Hi Muddy,

Sorry to heard abt your accident but its time to be thankful as u at least have a replacement car. I rang you and left a voice mail did you get it?

As for your last line I would like to add there is indeed no food like the variety of food we get back home due to the multicultural Society the food is lovely fusion.



xoxo

I hope you found your balls back.

Once another car's tyre's exploded right in front of me on Federal Highway. I had to stop aside to check whether my balls are still in it's place.

Oh God, never mind the car - glad you were fine.

Anyway, I share your sentiments towards the old banger - mine constantly gives me problem, & whenever it does, I would constantly curse it, but I still love it to bits & wouldn't even dream of replacing it ... well, at least not yet :-)

It's good you're ok though. Kena whiplash tak? I was caught in a 4-car pile-up before too, and I was the last car! Had such a bad case of whiplash after that. Hope the car does get better within the promised 3 weeks. Both times I've been in an accident, they lied!

Happy belated Merdeka!

Get well soon, car!
Muddy, don't worry. I felt the same way when my brother scratched my car. Though it was very minor but I want my car to be perfect.

blabs :

hey babe! no, no whiplash since the car is designed to absorb the impact. so it was like butter molding into the other car's bumper. huhu. and i hope the workshop didn't lie, cause seriously, i need/want my car back!!!
