Car Breakdown at Federal Highway

A quick entry about what happened to me yesterday morning. Ok first on Monday tuh, i was worried about my car because ada symptoms engine performance drop gila2 and susah nak naik bukit eventho it's very landai. But since baru jer repair the car on Saturday which cost me RM1.6K, i thought the fixing can be wait till weekend. So on Tuesday around 7am i went out to work, i noticed the same problem susah nak naik bukit wpon tekan minyak cam gila. Kalo org follow behind tuh sure rasa cam aku saja tanak tekan minyak. Time tuh cam  pikir takpelah bawak slow2 asal sampai.

Lepas bayar tol batu 3 trus ngadap traffic jam. Baru nk tekan minyak lg skali tetiba enjin terpadam. Feeling cam computer tetiba shut off biler black out gituh! Pulas2 ignition, the car refused to start. Alamakkk PANIC! Keta dah besusun kat blakang. Such an awkward moment ever when it feels like you park your car in the middle of highway with heavy traffic! The first thing i did was pasang hazard light. Tangan dah meghaban pegang tepon nak call Jeeb...sib baik ada lg battery, and sib baik dia tgh cuti. Then i called my boss informing my situation...basically mintak EL lah.

Lepas tuh tatau nak buat aper, i update FB and Twitter *cough* konon2 tgh busy pegang tepon nak call someone. Suddenly a police traffic pulled over and asked apa problem...so i demo sket pulas ignition keta takleh start. Then he said just tukar gear and dia nk tlg tolak. So dia tahan traffic 3 lane occay...all by himself and then pushed my car sampai tepi. Hohhhh lega gila! Sib baik dia tolak keta gerak...kalo tak gerak? Maknanya aku pon kene turun sbb berat sgt and tolak sama huahuahua! Tak sempat nak cakap tengkiu kat police traffic tuh sbb dia dah pegi amik motor dia yg kat tetengah jalan, honked me and hilang. Aaar pape pon thank you so much! Lega gila dah dapat duduk tepi lane and tak kaco orang.

Time nih dah start hujan lebat. Memang dugaan sungguh. Jeeb sampai and checked engine but there's nothing much he can do so i called tow truck. Boleh plak number 1800 kat sticker Etiqa tuh dah outdated, rasa cam baru jer last year tampal sticker tuh. Dah nak kene google plak carik number baru. We waited for about 1hr 10mins, duduk dalam keta yg berkabus2 ala2 romen-tik. Tapik romen-tak yerrrr! Hahaha nih member jeeb lah ni dok buat lawak kat FB. Then ada polis peronda stopped by and dropped 3 cones for safety :) Thank you for that jugak because cuak ada banyak keta laju suker masuk emergency lane.

Tried to amused each other in the car while waiting for tow truck.

Tgk Jeeb tgk Khairul Pami, tgk Jeeb tgk Khairul Pami. Mana lah tow truck tak sampai2 lagi!

Tow truck arrived and took my car to workshop sec15, the same workshop i went before. Sbb nak tau cemana leh rosak sedangkan dorang dah buat major service. Felt so sleepy, tired and waited for another almost 2 hours for them to fix the car. I couldn't even bothered to know whats the cause, but from what jeeb said ada water hose leaked yang caused keta overheat and battery kong. Sempat balik kejap sbb nak gi washroom and rest for 30mins and went back. Kejap jer dah petang, sigh.

Off you go baby!

But in spite of the whole incidents, ada good things happened as well :) So syukur i shouldn't really be complaining...well except that i'm on a tight budget now. Thankful ada orang tolong, glad Jeeb is around and alhamdulillah keta dah ok. Hope tahan lama2 sket before due for next maintenance.
