(Some-Not-So) Fun-tastic Weekend Pt 3

Yes, this last part has got some not-so fun part...

You see, after the tea ceremony @ USJ, the Parents, the Uncle & the Cousin went home to pack our bags for the trip to Genting Highlands. We were in two cars, mine & the Cousin's. When we reach my place, we found that the Cousin's car's aircond went kaput. The Uncle who's so tak sabar (transration = impatient) to go to Genting, asked the Cousin to fix his car next weekend. WTF?! Yalah, you say like this because YOU are not the one who's gonna drive the blardy car!

On the other hand, I do understand where the Uncle is coming from... This bachelor who's already in his 50's had spent close to two decades of his life at home, looking after the Parents, ie. my Grannies. This man has been cooped up at home most of the time and now that he's out for a short break, of course to him, time is precious.

So anyway, I told the Cousin to get his car checked at some nearby shops that are still opened on late Saturday afternoon. After checking out a few places, he found the shop which gave him the best bargain but he had to wait for the guy to get some 'stocks' to replace the faulty 'pipe'.

After packing our bags, we went to meet up with the Cousin at the mechanic's. Twas already 5 plus...

*waiting waiting waiting*

Still no sign of the man who's supposed to bring the 'stock'.

While waiting, the Papa looked at his own car... check here, check there...

OMG! What did he see on the tyre???


See the two 'slashes'? The 'bone' of the tyre!


Papa said, "It's still okay. I'll get it changed when I go back home."
"What?! No way! Home is like more than 300km away! Change it now!"
"No, no, it's still alright."
"NO! Faster change NOW!"

So, he ain't got no choice but to change it at angel's insistence. We changed 2 tyres to make it seimbang. (transration = balanced) Why do we have to pay 3% extra when we charge to credit cards?? Really blood suckers, man... So, pay cash la...

Anyway, after waiting for more than 2 hours, the man finally arrived with the 'stock'. Got the Cousin's car settled and left the place slightly a quarter past seven.

We were then off to Genting...

I so regret that I didn't take any pics of the WorldClub Room which costs RM370 per night during peak periods! But it's a nice looking room with quite a bit of space for 5 people. Then it was dinner at Hainan Kitchen Restaurant. Eat what? Eat chicken-lice la! (SA, not really lice yeah! LOL! But that's how some Chinese pronounce 'rice') A plate of roasted/steamed chicken rice was RM9.30++. Yup, that's the price you've gotta pay when you are up there...

After dinner, it was strolling time. Of course the Uncle went to pay a visit to Uncle Lim (transration = casino that belongs to a Mr. Lim Goh Tong... LOL!). Yours truly & the Parents walked around the place, enjoying the cool weather... ahhh, such bliss... and of course, lotsa snap-snaps too!










And that concludes the Hip.Hop.Happening.Weekend which ended with me, bitten by the Lethargy Bug! Come to think of it, I didn't do that much of work during the weekend but I was really down & out yesterday. But yup, I'm now up and about... Thank God!

*Currently on air - Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough,
Patty Smyth* (how true...)

Now, I don't want to lose you, but I don't want to use you
just to have somebody by my side.
And I don't want to hate you,
I don't want to take you, but I don't want to be the one to cry.

And that don't really matter to anyone anymore.
But like a fool I keep losing my place
and I keep seeing you walk through that door.

(Chorus)

But there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
and it's sad when you know it's your heart you can't trust.
There's a reason why people don't stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just aint enough.

Now, I could never change you, I don't want to blame you.
Baby, you don't have to take the fall.
Yes, I may have hurt you, but I did not desert you.
Maybe I just want to have it all.

It makes a sound like thunder, it makes me feel like rain.
And like a fool who will never see the truth,
I keep thinking something's gonna change.

(Chorus)

And there's no way home, when it's late at night and you're all alone.
Are there things that you wanted to say?
And do you feel me beside you in your bed,
there beside you, where I used to lay?

And there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
and it's sad when you know it's your heart they can't touch.
There's a reason why people don't stay who they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just ain't enough.

Baby, sometimes, love... it just ain't enough.
Oh, Oh, Oh, No.



Do-You-Know that I'm the kiasu (transration = afraid to lose) type when it comes to gambling?? Which is why, I DON'T even go play-play in the casino because each time I do it, I lose!

Dear ka..t...

Hoi! What old age?! Age is just a number... ;)

Okay, noted... last time, I went for quite a lot of shows at Actor's Studio and at that time, their tix was only rm20-30. Nowadays where got so cheap... so damn expensive... so, i hv stopped going for the local theatres...

Music Festival? Hmmm... nvr attended any... what kinda music, huh?

Good move changing those tires. You don't want to blow it on the road.

Hey credit card companies got to make money. Over here the retailer buries the cost in the charge. Would never tack on a credit card charge. Of course here if you have a good relationship with a shop owner you can have them remove the factor charge by paying cash.

angel said...

Dear SirSimpleAmerican...

Yeah, thank god dad saw it before we left for the highlands... Me thinks it's a blessing in disguise when the Cousin's aircond went kaput...

Yessir! Noted!
