Wanna hear a kelakar seram story?
This morning, I had to collect my health screening report from Far East Shopping Centre at freaking 9.30am. I wanted to ask the doctor why his clinic is only opened on Saturdays at such strict timing (8.30 – 11.00am) but I felt bad because the doctor really took time to explain regarding my medical results and also provided free consultation.
I had taken the comprehensive, pre-marital, cancer and ovarian health screening but these I will save for another entry. Back to the kelakar seram part.
So I squeezed in some me-time and had breakfast at ION’s CBTL and suddenly a light bulb lit up instantly. It was an hour to the other half’s lunch break so why not I surprise him with nasi padang and his favourite teh tarik since he always complains that he has to eat instant noodles during lunch (his workplace has no canteen, apadaaaaaahhh).
I chop chop bought his lunch, checked online for his workplace address and decided to cab there since it’s in the west and I am going back home mah.
You know, there were past instances where I would be unsure of the location of a place and taxi drivers would kindly help me look for the block number etc. This time, however, was different. When I reached the area, I was clueless where his workplace was although I had the address. Then the taxi driver asked if I knew where the place was. I told him I knew the address but I didn’t know where it is. Guess what he said?
“Huh? I am confused. You know or don’t know? First I brought you there then you tell me you don’t know where the place is? I think you better get down.”
Arsehole betul. So not wanting to cause a stir because I am at a foreign place and I takut kena kidnap and dibunuh and dicampak behind Joo Koon station, I decided to walk. I was happy when I saw Kian Teck Road but I still had no idea where the hell his workplace was! Nak tak nak, I surrendered and called him.
Me: “Hello sayang? Tempat kerja you kat mana?”
Him: “Huh? Untuk apa? You kat mana ni?”
Me: “Kian Teck Road. I belikan you lunch.”
Him: “I’m at Kian Teck Way! Where you are at now, is twenty minutes away from my workplace if you walk!”
Then I cried. Hahaha I know part gini mesti you all think I’m gembeng right. But the truth is, I was just upset that the taxi driver snapped at me for not knowing where exactly my destination was and that I had to alight at a fairly foreign place I had never been to. To add to that, sesat pulak tu!
Ten minutes later, the other half and his colleague came to pick me up. Lunch surprise became buat-malu-je-and-susahkan-orang-pulak-tu. I kept quiet in the car because one, it was my first time kena marah dengan taxi driver, two, my first time getting lost at such a weird industrial area and three, malu la cos he and his colleague had to fetch me while I was tearing hahaha.
I will be meeting him later to discuss about our wedding plans. Nanti when he asks me about the taxi driver, mesti I nangis lagi. For the record, I must explain to you that hati I memang lembut and mudah emotionally affected. When I found out my friend’s husband was cheating on her, I cried, padahal tak ada kena mengena pun. When I found out my student’s father had passed away in an accident, I cried too, padahal tak pernah jumpa dia pun. When my then-6 year old sister (now she’s 12) fell on the road and scraped her knees real bad, I cried too. There were so many instances where I would cry or tear when in actual fact, it has got nothing to do with me.
Hmmm. Okaylah, maybe I am gembeng. Lol.
