It all started on Saturday afternoon when i just couldn't resist a fitness challenge and go do stupid things.
Pump too hard on friday afternoons bodypump, then go wreck myself on a fitness challenge on saturday, woke up freaking early in the morning to cover a wedding on sunday, finalist for the fitness challenge and made a wreck of myself again and had to cover the wedding dinner after the challenge.
End result - one day Medical leave and sore lower back.
Had to wake up super early to cover the wedding for me mate [ vialentino
], 5am i got up and was at his place by 530am. We had some light food just to sustain the hunger until we got to Malacca. Scheduled to leave at 6am but coz of late arrivals we left a bit later. Soon we reached the highway and everything was going fine until suddenly the main car had a flat tyre, what luck!
Everyone pulled over to the side and got out of their cars to fix the flat tyre. We took out the spare tyre and then realized, where are the tools? We soon found it coz its hidden in a special compartment where it is nicely tucked away. The tyre was fixed in a couple of minutes, strong buddies there to help out.
Then we were on our way again. We were very close to the Ayer Keruh tol exit when suddenly a family of monkeys decided to migrate from one end of the highway to the other end, the monkeys just made a dash for it and the car infront slammed his breaks and manage to avoid the whole lot of them but there were 2 more monkeys at the side which havent made the dash.
That two monkeys decided to dash right after the first car had passed them and we being the second car could not avoid them and slam one monkey to the side of the road and the unfortunate one went under the car. It was a scary moment i tell you.
After driving for a minute or two, the driver noticed his temperature had gone up to the highest level it could go and was checking his aircond temperature and other stuff to see what was going on, then he quickly pulled over as the temperature was at a maximum, it could have overheated and blown the bonet at any moment.
Everyone pulled over and came out to help out again. We tried filling water to see if theres not enough water. We tried a couple of stuff, until someone checked the bottom of the car and noticed that the monkey we hit actually damaged the engine's carburator and there was no cooling system, so the temperature imediately went up. So one car down but luckily we had two more cars. Our poor friend had to wait for a pick-up truck to tow his car back to the workshop and he would miss all the action that was going to happen. His car was 3 weeks old somemore.
I had to move into the other car and we continued our journey. After so much unforseen accidents we still managed to reach our destination on time. Went through all the "Door Breaking" getting the bride process and serving tea ceremony to your family members, we soon left for KL again. This time there were more ppl going down so i had to sit in the bride and grooms car. The 3 of us all so tired from this all and the long 2 hour journey made us sleep like babies throughout the journey back to kl, hehehe.
We finally reach the Groom's house and we all went in to the house and took a breather and rested for while before the tea ceromony begin again. While all this was happening the groom suddenly realized that he had dropped his dragon gold ring which was given to him by his grandfather. Everyone started looking for the ring but could not find it. Calls were made to malacca to see if he had dropped it there or not. In the end they found it in malacca. After all the ceremony and neccessary ceromony was done i went straight home to rest and get ready coz i got a call from the fitness challenge that i manage to qualify for the finals and i still maintained the best record among the other finalist. :)
Got home to rest and left at 5pm. [ read previous entries for the challenge
After the challenge(was super tired then)
i had to rush to cover the wedding dinner session. I felt like calling it quits, if you knew what i had gone through then you would know how i was feeling then but i managed to pull through in the end. The pictures came out nice and the wedding was nicely covered with lots of praises and good wishes. Overall i was quite happy with my performance as well.
I might have called it stupid but it was one hell of a memorable weekend with so much going on in a span of just a few hours...
