dasyatnye.. reverse SENSOR!!

Latety things has been eventful and cheery.. but to add things up.. last friday.. in a dark corner of the basement.. we're (me - driver, zai & afza - back passengers) waiting for Yang to be yanked down by Lenny from da office for lunch..

while waiting.. da boys at da back we're toying around their newly acquired 3G phones.. hey the phones were great n they're buzy chatting bout its funtionalities.. 5 minutes lapsed n finally i saw the sight of Yang n Lenny in my wing mirror..

both promptly opened the door n enters the car.. i've shifted into reverse and when i was about to move.. when suddently.. "Weeiieeeh!!!" afza yelled.. i hit da brakes *stop*.. tot i was about to hit a car or something.. tgk.. xde pape pon.. semua or blank.. then..

apza (to Yang): "ko ni masuk2 terus pegang je"..
yang : "mane laa aku tau.. masuk2 tgk korang tgh main handphone.. aku pon nak carik hp laa ni"

hahaha *giggle* ..(weih korang aku x tahan laa nk perabih blog ni.. volenteer laa sesape nak perabih..) fuh.. fuh.. anyhow.. only after we've learned what had happened.. kitaorg gelak gedabas dalam kete tu.. x bole drive beb.. kena calm down a bit.. baru boley.. :)

nak tau what happened.. well erm.. how shall i put this.. actually instead of finding the handphone.. that someone grabbed afza's 'lightsaber'.. haha.. :P

dasyatnye.. the good old days..

a businessman may say its uprofitable, enteprenures may say its a waste of time to look back on things from the past. but on the otherhand..

lawyers may find it essential to refer past preceedings to defend its client, engineers could save lives from analyzing past events..

many more examples could be listed.. some may be accurate n some not so.. but don't take this seriously sbb i dunno squat what i'm rambling kat atas td.. saje je buat drama.. haha..

actually juz want to talk bout the simple2 things masa dulu yg kita encounter slalu that we've take for granted. tp kalu kita pikir balik on all those stuff.. it may bring good memories which cld make us smile, giggle.. probably.. da ones yg wenthru their childhood during the 80's may have the same wavelenght n know what i'm talking about..

take Tic Tac for example.. sampai sekarang ada lagi.. fr initial price of 70 cents to 1.50.. nowadays seldom do i buy this sweet treat.. but when i do.. couldn't help but remember the good old times.. whre life is far less complecated and full of happiness.. no doubt cause its called childhood..

Tic Tac isn't juz a yummy treat.. it's also an avenue to explore our imagination.. the commom thing you do with the container is pretend that its a lighter n.. puffing away you would go on a rolled piece of paper.. or fill it up with water, find a puddle n fill the thing with tadpoles.. use it as a granade.. keep ants.. the list goes on..

then they were Kam-Kam.. the chickadees that comes with a toy.. ade one time tu.. the toy was the robot plane of robotech.. a popular anime series tat time.. so mmg hari-hari laa beli.. n another.. i dunno if u guys pernah makan or not (i know some pernah).. ade this biskut.. its round like oreos but kaler lite brown.. n instead of cream.. derang letak sort of red kaler jem yg liat.. cicah dgn teh 'o' mmg besh.. the dough goes mushi.. but jem dia maintain liat..

ok ok.. takkan psal makan je tak.. tv shows pon also gives a good flashback.. apart from hindustan yg almost everyday tayang fr 3.30 - 6.00.. i guess tats why i'm sick to watch it today.. there also tv shows like 'V'.. alaa citer alien (look like human) yg makan orang.. animals n insects.. n bila kulit terkupas nampak hijau.. then they were.. star trek (same result as hindustan.. get sick of it also).. knight rider.. million dollar man/woman.. get smart.. magnum p.i.. the green hornet.. batman.. kungfu.. n wah byk lagi.. wow.. didn't know tat i'm tat much of a couch potato..

anyhow ade byk lagi stuffs yg bring back good memories.. this is juz a few which i'm sharing.. its a good conversational piece.. bridging frendships.. keep us sane.. n i guess it unlimitted as on which angle u're lookin at.. apa2 pon.. realizing this.. i could't help but wonder.. ape pulak would be the things that would be an icon in our lives for the next 10 years.. for now music fr da 90's is retro for me.. n perhaps.. malibu dreams n hazelnut coffee will be the thing of the future past for me.. what bout u guys.. things tat dig u in da past n the 'will be' for future?

dasyatnye.. gen2 jejak merdeka

So what did i do last Merdeka celebration? as u've probably had known from Laydiefa's post, i've joined her in a treasure hunt contest for Gen.2 owners.. funny thing is, for me the hunt started a tad earlier than the official date.. why? because i've got to find the briefing venue somewhere in UEP.. no biggie eh? well.. took me 2 days.. haha..

da first day i've got about 2 hrs to kill before i have to head back n pickup my parents.. so i've rang my proton sales rep.. n he guided me a bit by saying to me to go out of federal right before the toll.. n go straight toward usj16.. i think to myself ok.. tats simple enuf.. but actually.. find myself lost in glenmarie.. subang airport, subang jaya n usj.. and the darkness of the nite n many constructions along da way didn't help.. there were numerous u-turns.. some legal n.. erm.. some not so.. but i'm following my brother's philosophy which is "There are no dead ends in a journey, only long or short due to how many u-turns u've done". tat nite i didn't find the venue..

second attempt i was prepared as a map to the venue has been posted in a forum.. so it was an easy drive towards the destinations.. managed to spot where i've done wrong da nite before.. is was in fact at usj 12.. so i was looking at the wrong area.. uereka! found it.. being in an industrial area on a sunday afternoon where the Proton COE is.. its like a ghost town.. there were no cars nor ppl around.. i can stop in the middle of the junction for 15 minutes n still no cars would pass by..

pleased with the find.. i've decided to look for alternate routes on my way back.. belok kanan.. then belok kiri.. ek'elen i said to myself.. mcm kenal je masjid ni.. rupa2nya the venue is right behind taipan.. the area slalu kitaorg stopover for drinks after futsal.. buang karen je.. hehe.. :p well.. at least skrg ni i know some of the nook and crannies of the places that i've been lost.. fr an initial of zero knowledge of the area..

a day before the treasure hunt.. went there with Laydiefa for the briefing and we're among the first to arrive.. they gave us cucur udang and mihun for tea.. being first timers.. i think both of us listened to the briefing carefully.. got our lucky competition number 218.. and the next morning the hunt starts at 7.00 am.. so we made our move somewhere in the versinity of 5.45 to 6.00 am.. reached there by quater to 7.00.. by then.. there were already a large number of Gen.2s arrived. had our breakfast ther.. it was mihun and sandwiches.. a bit of a delay but after a pumped up Merdeka roar at 7.30 it stared and off we go..

so my duty was as the navigator.. haha.. dun wory.. minding aside my previous track record.. we didn't get LOST :P uor journey would take us from USJ > Taipan > Glenmarie > TTDI > Hartamas and finally Petronas Gombak (da on with Burger King). there were 30 questions that we had to complete, plus an additional 5 on road safety. at almost every sector we'd pull over n walk to search for the answer.. n a few we had to use talian hayat.. Laydiefa's sister was a big help on a few of the question.. she on standby at home with internet.. 4 hrs passed and we finally at the final leg of the journey heading towards Petronas.

elok2 je sampai.. hand in our answers.. hujan pon turun.. so had lunch and waited for the rain to ooze down a bit before heading up to Genting. Genting?? yup.. for prize presentation & luck draw.. moving along.. yada.. yada.. during dinner the answers were projected in the ballroom.. n ppl would go oOooo.. aAargh.. in reaction of the answers including us.. in the end.. we did ok considering that we're first timers.. again mihun was part of the menu served..

notice that i've italisice the word Mihun throughout this entry.. tats because.. thay have been serving us Mihun 3 times.. recycle ke ape ni? hehe.. to be frank.. i dun think i can eat Mihun for at least another week.

back to the results.. treasure hunt nyer prize mmg dh xde harapan.. cause the top ten winners all were 97% and above.. so was hoping for the lucky draw which were 5 Gen.2s up for grabs.. but the one that is allocated for central region were 2 units. as to make things transparent.. the draw took lots of time before the first number being read.. it was 00XX.. aaaa.. mmg jauh from 0218.. the next same process.. still waing.. n when the number being read.. 02XX.. haa.. ade harapan ni.. then.. piok x4.. tak kena daa.. habis dah chan kitaorg..

anyhow.. its not tat frustrating at all.. sbb cabutan tu among 264 cars.. and total from all regions was 647.. so ok laa.. mmg sape dpt tu mmg lucky n rezeki.. there are some things that can't be compared with goods.. i had tons of fun.. n my congratulations to the lady pilot whom had drove us safely and sucessfuly participate in this event. kampai.
