Last night –
Son : Remember ok? Tomorrow wake up early, wear your spec and handyplast and wait for the courier delivery man. (he was expecting a parcel)
Me : Sure lah, sure lah. Cis, next time don’t read my blog, ok?
Ooops! Got a call at 11 am that there is a parcel to be collected from the Jelutong Expressway because no one around when they delivered. (aircond, door closed cannot hear door bell mah) Feeling guilty that I didn’t get the parcel, I thought of driving there instantly. Dare not call atm ‘cos dunwan to kena lecture for sleeping like a log. Must get parcel ‘cos my son has promised to meet his Japanese friend after school (the parcel for both of them).
So, I drove without knowing exactly how to get into the Jelutong Expressway. My mind fooled me that I can go into it from Tesco area. Went around twice and realised I can only get into the lane from Gelugor. Drove up to Gelugor and on the look out for the courier company. Not a single sign of it, ended up in some Jalan Bakau gangster area.
Totally lost, have to phone atm and admit I am as brainless as the day he knew me. He wanted to phone the courier company for clearer direction. Cannot find their number. So, he suggested I drove down to town and take another attempt to get into the Expressway. This time, I ended up in Jalan Sungai and all kind of ulu places with cheap flats and continue searching for road signs leading to ‘Feri’. Lucky after following all the road signs, I managed to get the parcel in some foresaken new township along the Jelutong Expressway. It was on the other side of the Expressway so that’s how I missed it the first round. Stupid courier company told me ‘Yaya, lepas Tesco, dekat itu sampah sana.’ (dumpsite area)
Reached home only at 12.30 noon. My toddler turned green face due to the pusing-pusing and vomit. Duh! He even recognised roads like ‘This one we go Redang one hor’ and ‘This one we come back KL one hor’. Poor kid been taken for a ride by a blind mummy! Haih…if you put me in the Klang Valley, I may never find my way home, ever.
