can’t wait ! will be off from thursday. the decision to take friday off was made due to kakak and anaqi not having their yaie around.
i took the kids to bijou bazaar last weekend – been meaning to check ‘em out since their jaya supermarket days – only that when i finally got round to the area – they’ve already ceased operating there (the complex is to be redeveloped)
kakak definitely had fun, what with face-painting and the chance of dipping her feet into the pool – i only managed to check out 3 stalls (ida shah’s, anaz’s and of course, the henna tatoo / face-painting).. a bit of a challenge to try persuade a 15-month-old to go where you want to go.. so rather than fight it.. i just stuck with hanging round the pool.
on the work-end, am wrapping up the previous phase of the project and now planning for the next. and again – i get a tad worried whether i am getting over my head with this project.
this is after all an infra-related project – based on a product that i have, at best, only beginner knowledge (from whatever reading materials i managed to google). good thing project director has identified a potential replacement (?) for me. someone who actually can make sense of all those logical/physical diagrams the operations team are forwarding me. am already on information overload!!
and then there was that incident yesterday morning. (rant alert!!)
jln jelatek has always tested the patience of most of the motorists lucky enough to use it lately due to the construction of duke highway. for the past month or so, nearby villa wangsamas – the lanes headed for kl has been cordoned off leaving only one (read, one!) lane accessible to the motorists. as if that isn’t bad enuff – you have inconsiderate drivers thinking they alone paid their roadtax (if any).
case in point:
i normally keep to the left @ jln jelatek – as that’s the lane i’d naturally end up on when i turn into the road.Â plus since they’ve closed off the right lane near wangsamas – i’d rather not go thru the hassle of cutting back into the left lane.
there’s 3 lanes at the start of the jln jelatek (or end, depending on where you are headed – this is at the cross roadsÂ from sri rampai, to carrefour and seksyen 4).. the right-mostÂ traffic is expected to merge with the middle lane at somepointÂ - turning it into a two-lane road. common sense would tell you (who are in the middle lane)Â would need to give way for the cars to merge into the same lane.
then you have this driver – in a red compact car – not wanting to give way to the motorist on his right who keeps moving forward and at the same time, eating into the left lane. i would’ve just given way immediately if he had indicated his intention by flashing his signal lights.
BUT NOOOOOOOO… (his car prolly didn’t have the signal lights installed).. he kept inching forward whilst squeezing a tad bit more into my lane. i soldiered on and kept on movingÂ - ingat dia sorang aje ke nak gi keje? aku nak drop off anak then pegi keje tauuuuu??!!!
on hindsight – if i had just given way, i wouldn’t have gotten all pissed off in the end. but there you have it – the compact ended up a few inches away from hitting my side of the car – i looked at the driver and he was gesturing to me to make way – i glared back and pressed the pedal. he did likewise – getting a bit more closer this time.
recalling that i had anaqi in the backseat and that i’d just had a paintjob for the car – i finally gave in. this dude – had the audacity to still turn around in his seat to gesture at me (no, not the middle finger – just to show annoyance)
AMBOIHHH!! dah org kasik jalan.. lagi nak marah2 lagi?
i whipped out my o2.. turned on the camera and took a photo of the offending vehicle.
to the driver of red myvi with reg. no QMM 2808 – i hope you reached wherever you headed for in record time. let’s hope we don’t cross paths again in the future – definitely not worth getting a bad start to the day with a moron like you!
