“Watch out for the jam in the morning. You better leave latest by 7 am.” my good friend advised on the first day I arrived. Mentally I was bracing for a 1 to 1.5 hour jam from Kota Kemuning to Sheraton Subang. But it turned out my friend was pulling my leg and on the first day, I had a loooong breakfast with enough time to read “The New Straits Times” twice over and still be on time for class at 9 am. Long time never had such luxury in the morning and I liked it so much I kept it for the rest of the week.
Surprise no: 3 waking up one hour early every day can be fun and fatal at the same time. I read about this lady who used to wake up early every day to beat the traffic and napped in her car in the company carpark before going to work. She died last week when her car rolled down and crashed to the bottom of a 25 m retaining wall.
KL also has its daily free newspaper called “The Sun”. “The Sun” was hot and usually it would be gone before I am done with my breakfast. Breakfast was roti canai washed down with teh tarik. Further to that, I was like having curry every alternate day at my friend’s house. For these 5 days I think I had had my quota of heaty food for the whole month of October. Thank goodness no sore throat which bring me to Surprise no: 4 Heaty food does not cause heatiness in the throat but ignite the fire in the heart. How I wish wifey was around to do some heat transfer activities!
Well, weekend was a totally different story. Cocka organized blogger meeting was pure fun and absolutely crazy! Early bird catches the worm and coming early I got to spend a private moment with titoki, the notorious blogger everyone love to pijak who was there after me and before everyone else. That will be my surprise no: 5, and will leave it for the next post….
