Do one thing everyday that scares you!
Today I became the leading driver for 6 cars that drove at the back of mine. We were all set to attend our ex-manager’s wedding dinner in Jinjang. And since no one knows the way, but me, I had to take the lead, which seemed very stressful at the beginning, thrilling during the driving, contented and happy after the driving and felt it was a fun thing to do after the day ended.
Initially, I didn’t know the way to Jinjang too but I got hold of a friend who stays in Kepong and made him come with me over the weekend, while I drive to locate Jinjang and the restaurant where the wedding will be held.
After work, my colleagues and I, as well as two other ex-colleagues started off from Cyberjaya. I’ve never driven so slowly on LDP but I did today, doing a 60 kilometre per hour which just seemed so torturing. Wanted to go faster but was afraid that the rest couldn’t catch up…so decided to stay put at that slow speed. I think there were cars that were cursing at me, delaying their journey. I’m so sorry people. I didn’t have a choice and I don’t do this everyday.
It was quite funny to see the rest following slowly behind me too because two of my colleagues are very aggressive drivers. Fast and furious.
The difficult part was when we passed through the toll booth, all split up and you got to stick back closely after one another after that. The journey was smooth in that all the cars reached safely at my apartment where they parked some of the cars, merging from 7 cars to just 4 cars. We then continued the journey from my house to Jinjang.
It was a fun night out where I get to dress up a little. Not too much. Just a little since the wedding dinner is on a Monday and I couldn’t bathe and get dressed up at home. I did the changing in the office toilet.
We sat at Table number 7.
7 cars. Table number 7. 7 was the number of the day. 7 is also my favourite number. 7 is also the month I’m born in.
