My Episode With My Old Junk

oooooh... I am so tired... Just came back from my "teambuilding course" in Pengkalan Hulu. Once reaching my office at around 8pm, I got down from the bus and quickly ran to my car to start up the engine. When it sprang to life after awhile, I was so relieved! Why? Cos I drove my 25 years old junk car to stay one night there....

While driving home, I wind down the window, after awhile, when I wanted to wind up again, it got stuck halfway, couldn't go down nor up... gosh...

Reaching home, took my girl for dinner in Perak Stadium. Halfway through dinner, I saw my church friend. He came over and asked me, "hey, your car is ABF xxx?" Immediately I replied yes, wondering why he asked... then he said, "The headlights are still on!" Quickly I ran to the car again (in one night, I ran to my old junk two times!)

Before I started the car, I said a word of prayer.. please do not let the engine die, Lord...

And of course, it didn't ... phew.... what a night... this incident has taught me not to use my old junk at night...nor park it in my office overnight too....
